Engine Specifications: 5,733 CC DOHC V-10 Engine Bosch Metronic ME 7.1.1 Electronic Fuel Injection 612 HP at 8,000 RPM 6-Speed Manual Transaxle 4-Wheel Carbon-Ceramic Ventilated Disc Brakes Fully Independent Suspension with Pushrod Linkage About this Car: Rare, purposeful, and ferociously quick, Porsche’s stunning mid-engined Carrera GT was introduced at the 2003 Geneva Auto Show. Derived from the 911 GT1 and LMP1-98 prototype racing programs, the Carrera GT moved Porsche firmly to the head of the supercar class. Once Porsche brought its wildly successful Cayenne SUV to market, it reassigned its engineers to the Carrera GT project, and the result was stunning. The factory began taking orders that fall with deliveries beginning the following year. While 1,500 examples were planned, only 1,270 were actually built and sold with an MSRP of $448,000. About half of those cars went to the US market, and more than a few were tucked away into private collections. Each car possessed a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and subframe, pushrodactuated front and rear suspensions, carbonceramic (PCCB), cross-drilled ventilated disc brakes, and a stunning, lightweight 5.7-liter V-10 engine that had its genesis in Porsche’s Footwork-Arrows F1 program of 1991–1996. This four-valves-per-cylinder, dry-sump, fuel-injected powerplant produced a conservative 612 hp at 8,000 rpm, and 435 lbs. /ft of torque at 5,750 rpm, all delivered through a small-diameter, twin-plate ceramic clutch to a six-speed manual transaxle. Center-lock-forged magnesium alloy wheels–with a diameter of 19" in front and 20" in the rear–reduced unsprung weight and included a tire pressure monitoring system. Using its electronic traction control, the Carrera GT can accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill in just 3.6 seconds and achieve a maximum speed in excess of 200 mph: a retractable rear spoiler adds stability at higher speeds. Two removable composite roof panels can be stored under the front trunk lid, turning the Carrera GT into a delightful open-air tourer. Air buffeting is all but eliminated with a glass panel that fits between the seats. The luxurious and highly functional interior includes all the usual amenities, plus an advanced airbag system. This Carrera GT, in GT Silver Metallic with an Ascot Brown leather interior, was ordered by a top executive of J.P. Morgan/Chase in New York City. Upon delivery, the owner kept it for only a brief period, accruing barely 600 miles, before selling it to the current owner. The consignor has kept the Porsche inside a showroom with only a few brief excursions to keep its systems working properly. At the time of cataloguing, it registered approximately 1,250 total miles, and its current owner states the car is in pristine condition. It includes factory-fitted luggage, tool kit, and its original window sticker. This Carrera GT presents an unusual opportunity to acquire a superb example of one of the most exciting, powerful, and useable Porsche sports cars ever produced.
