    Porsche Carrera GT

    Some pics and information on the latest supercar from Stuttgart.

    Official pics from the Porsche UK website




    A good read here, and be sure to pay a visit to the Carrera GT Experience section of the website for some stunning desktop backgrounds.

    ... and one on the streets near the Porsche facilities.

    Pics courtesy of Geoff H.









    Notice the center wheel nuts on the left side of the car are in red and those on the right are in blue, just like a Formula 1 car. 19" wheels in front and 20" wheels in the rear are made from forged magnesium.

    Yeah you're right... You're probably the only one..
    Damn that's a beauty.. Although Benman is right about that red color. Imagine it in black...
    I was a bit sceptic (spell check?) at first sight, because it wasn't anything like the 911 but, hey...even Porsche must develope their design... And now, I thinks it's really cool. But, is it actually a race car?

    I guess some cameras have a difficult time capturing reds as that color actually looks more red than pinkish in person. However, my choice would be a silver or black one as well!

    yes, definately silver or black. the only problem with black
    is keeping it looking clean (had 2 black cars and those are the
    last ones )

    Perhaps not one of the owner's concerns if he/she can afford such a car at ~460,000 Euros

    MAN:bigeyes: being the test drivers for those cars must be
    a horrible job.

    Oh damn... Missed them again. Sometimes, I wish I would be living in the deep forrests in the north of Sweden. That seems like a good opportunity to see all the supercars before anyone else does... I wonder why there wasn't an Carrera GT at the Stockholm Car Show? I'd loved to se it in real...

    That's a great pic of the test cars, Erik. Did you witness it in person? Must have been some stunning sight and sound!

    A very nice sight. There's a lot of activity developing cars in the northern part of Sweden but also a lot of hush-hush. The locals don't really like photographers either 'cause it would hurt their business if the manufacturers left.
    Not sure who took the photo, but it wasn't me.
