From the Nürburgring to the tracks at Daytona and Le Mans, Porsche has earned a unique place in motor racing history at virtually every track in the world. From the classic shape of the 911, to the new Boxster and on to the Cayenne—Porsches have a distinct look. They cannot be confused with any other car on the road.
Now to really emphasize the point, they have unleashed the Carrera GT on an unsuspecting automotive community. One of the most uncompromising vehicles ever created for the road, this latest generation of Porsche offers breathtaking performance in every respect. From a standing start, it reaches 124 mph (200 km/h) in just 9.9 seconds en route to a top track speed of 205 mph (330 km/h). That is a truly stunning statistic, and to achieve that speed, they developed an engine that pumps out 650 horsepower! At the heart of the car, the mid-mounted V10 is mounted deep in the chassis to create an extremely low center of gravity. With less susceptibility to lateral g-forces, the car remains flat, consistent and inherently balanced through even the fastest racing bends. With such a total heritage in racing performance, there was only ever one layout option: an open-top two-seater with two-piece detachable hardtop.
