Product Overview

Porsche Carrera GT is a flagship high-performance mid-size targa supercar in production from 2003 to 2007. It was powered by a naturally-aspirated V10 engine that displaced 5.7 liters paired to a 6-speed manual transmission that sends power only to the rear wheels.
One of the most powerful and characterful V10 engines to this day, the 5.7L unit powering the Carrera GT is loved by enthusiasts the world over. The car's unique yet familiar (to 911 enthusiasts) styling is also a masterpiece. The fact that, despite both being V10-powered and RWD, the Carrera GT handles lightyears ahead of the Viper from the same period attests to Porsche's advanced engineering.
However, one must not overlook the car's astronomical price. Owners have also claimed that the clutch is hard to use.
