The 2005 Porsche Carrera Gt

The Porsche Carrera GT is unofficially a racecar, one that is built for the street. What makes this a racecar is not necessarily the huge power produced by the V10 engine, or the carbon fiber construction that keeps it very lightweight – although these do make it a very fast car. It’s more the sum of it’s parts that make this car worth every bit of it’s $440,000 price tag.

The Porsche Carrera GT was originally introduced as a 2004 model, and by 2005 there were a few changes due to make the Carrera GT the new porshce super car. The changes were only minor, just to make it a little more street friendly. In between the supplemental bar hoops there is now a glass screen. The seat’s height were adjusted and there was more bolstering in the thigh area added. You cannot miss the Carrera GT, it’s a low, sleek, lightweight roadster, just as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside. There are two removable panels that can be stored in the trunk for your bad weather protection.

There are unique features to the car, among which are the 5.7 litre, 605 break horse power V10 engine, the monocoque chassis with Porsche-patented engine, the transmission mounts made of carbon reinforced plastic, and the first use of a ceraminc composite clutch in a production car. An important aspect is that the carrera GT is safe and stable at speeds up to 205 mph, thanks to its aerodynamic and race-bred suspension package.

The design of the suspension is so sophisticated that the shape of it’s components improve the car’s aerodynamins. The designers of the Carrera GT used lightweight materials for it’s substantial wheels and the frames of the special sports seats, the result being a faster and safer car. Just how fast is fast? Well, the carrera GT accelerates from a standing start to 62 mph (100 kmh) in just 3.9 seconds and reaches 100 mph (160kmh) in less that seven seconds, and 125 mph (200 kmh), in less than 10 seconds, it also can achieve a top test-track speed of 205 mph (330 kmh).

Porsche Carrera GT is definitely a exotic appearance, a car that can do it all: fascinate you with its good looks, and astound you with its performance and abilities on the race track.
