A Look At The Carrera GT

The Carrera GT is powered by a 5.7 litre V10 engine producing 612 DIN (605 SAE) horsepower, whereas the original concept car featured a 5.5 litre version rated at 558 hp. Porsche claims it will accelerate from 0-62.1 mph in 3.9 seconds and has a maximum speed of 205 mph, although road tests indicated that in reality the car can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and 0-100 mph in 6.8 seconds, while 0-125 mph in 9.9 seconds.

The Carrera GT came in a basic five color paint scheme which includes Guards Red, Fayence Yellow, Basalt Black, GT Silver and Seal Grey. Custom colors were also available from the factory. A traditional six-speed manual transmission is the only available transmission. Attached to this gearbox is a beechwood shift-knob which pays homage to the wooden shift-knobs used in the Porsche 917 Le Mans racers. Ah...yes, the 917 racers...what awesome cars!
