C2 GTS v Car­rera T

Total 911 - - Views -

dear Sir, The re­cent road trip in the new Car­rera T was fas­ci­nat­ing. I’ve not got deep enough pock­ets for an R and my golf swing isn’t good enough to im­press my [OPC’S] dealer prin­ci­ple, so there was never a real chance of se­cur­ing a GT3 Tour­ing ei­ther. I was go­ing to or­der a C2 GTS man­ual Coupe, but this Car­rera T also ap­peals. You men­tioned the GTS re­mains your pick of the cur­rent Car­rera range, but why is that? There’s a de­posit on the line for ei­ther car here!

Re­gards, Jack Mur­don

Great ques­tion, Jack. For us the chas­sis of the GTS is a bet­ter all-rounder: it’s just as en­gag­ing on the road (yet its wider, larger track yields a more di­rect drive and bet­ter corner­ing power) and is suit­ably equipped for track use. the car­rera t mean­while is pri­mar­ily a road car thanks to its short fi­nal drive ra­tio and en­try-level brakes, not to men­tion an 80hp en­gine deficit, all of which will be par­tic­u­larly ap­par­ent on a fast, open track. Sure, the t’s man­ual gear shift has been pos­i­tively re­vised, but the dif­fer­ence is in­cre­men­tal over a c2 GTS. the GTS ar­guably has a bet­ter, more de­sir­able spec, too, and don’t for­get you can delete rear seats in the GTS as a no-cost op­tion. that’s a pretty good deal for what is fi­nan­cially an ad­di­tional 10 per cent out­lay, ap­prox­i­mately. Let us know which you go for!
