The Porsche Carrera GT (Project Code 980) is a mid-engined supercar that was manufactured by Porsche between 2004–2007 in Leipzig, Germany. By the end of production on May 6, 2006, more than 1,270 GTs had been sold, with at least 604 of those being in North America.
The exotic 605-hp Carrera GT revealed here is arguably the finest sports car the company has ever produced.
It is an incredible car, with a plethora of juicy technical details and glorious thrust from a mid-mounted aluminum V-10 engine.
The 60-mph run isn’t a sprint; it’s simply a first stride in this car. It’s gone in 3.5 seconds. A scant 3.3 seconds later, 100 mph arrives. The Carrera GT has large side inlets and air dams that help cool the large V10 engine framed by the carbon fibre rear bonnet. Fitted with Porsche’s latest Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite brake system, the 15-inch (380 mm) SGL Carbon disc brakes make an impressive appearance underneath the 19 inch front and 20 inch rear wheels.
There’s carbon fiber throughout the car. The carbon-fiber chassis is made by ATR, the same company that produces the Enzo chassis. It’s formed by placing about 1000 pieces of carbon-fiber cloth on molds that are first vacuum-bagged to prevent air bubbles and then cured under high temperature and pressure in an autoclave.
