Ten years after production of the Carrera GT ended, it is now a member of the Porsche Classic family. The appearance and lines of the Type 980, which was manufactured from 2003 onwards, reveal its motor sports inheritance. While its design indicates its stylistic links with standard production vehicles, it also takes some of its features from legendary Porsche racing cars.
In this exclusive production run of only 1270 cars, the Carrera GT was powered by a ten-cylinder engine with dry-sump lubrication. The capacity of the 5.5-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine, which was originally designed for use on the track, was increased to 5.7 litres for the standard production model.
With a power output of 450 kW/612 PS at 8000 rpm and a top speed of over 330 km/h, the Carrera GT set new standards. This power was transferred to the road by manual six-speed gearbox.
