Porsche Carrera GT is already using a design language expresses its outstanding characteristics. But in contrast to his concept, showcased at the Geneva Motor Show in 2000, and what was intended only for racing, Porsche Carrera GT (980) – a production car, and this is the most beautiful Porsche car for public roads. Porsche Carrera GT (980) – Double supercar with a body targa, with rear wheel drive and mid-engine. Overall dimensions of the Porsche Carrera GT, mm.: length – 4623 width – 1930, height – 1 168, the wheelbase – 2730.

After some time, the motor rebuilt under the rules of the race “24 Hours of Le Mans”, but again brought the matter to the end. As a result, he has found a permanent place behind the cockpit Carrera GT. This is exactly the case when the engine was built for the new car. Porsche Carrera GT maximum speed is 330 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h takes just 3.9 seconds. At low speeds the Carrera GT is suitable for everyday driving, despite the explosive nature of his ten-power unit. In fact, this racing car, redesigned in the “civilian” car.

Instead of the traditional suspension type MacPherson, in Carrera GT used double wishbone, strut and telescopic shock absorber and rear mounted twin radius arms, wishbone. Its chassis, borrowed from the Porsche 911 GT1 – the winner of the race 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1998, has been tested in the toughest conditions. Four-ABS, traction control system (TCS – Traction Control system) and automatic stability control (ASC), make it possible to maintain a dynamic driving style even under difficult road conditions. But this does not mean that driving need to rely entirely on them. Porsche Carrera GT does not forgive mistakes in the management of even titled this driver as Mark Eberhard Edward – Prince, the Duke and the Count in one person, who crashed at the circuit Paul Ricard from the Porsche Carrera GT tuning from Gemballa company worth more than $ 1.5 million, I can not cope with the temperament of the car. Squeeze the maximum power of the Carrera GT, and not to get into an accident with the only true professionals can.

And the smaller the existing instances on the market, the more prized car. Price Porsche Carrera GT exceeded 700,000 dollars. But the story does not end at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show German automaker showed hybrid supercar the Porsche 918 Spyder, which will become the ideological successor of model Carrera GT.
