Porsche® Carrera® GT Quick Data

Powered by using a 558-horsepower naturally aspirated V-10 engine and in line with a racecar-sort chassis, the mid-engine Porsche® Carrera® GT is a prototype for a supercar that could possibly go into limited production by 2003.

In both design and construction, the Carrera GT roadster is in accordance with pure racing know-how. The design attracts on basic Porsche racecars for notion, particularly the 718 RS® Spyder of the early Sixties. The all-new in most cases aspirated V-10 engine, six-velocity handbook transmission with racing-kind take hold of and the suspension and brakes owe little to present Porsche highway vehicles. The physique, made primarily from carbon fiber, ensures excessive stress, passenger security and low weight.

The V-10 engine displaces 5.5 liters and produces 558 horsepower (410 kW) and 442 lb.-toes. (600 Nm) of top torque, enough to propel the two,755-lb (1,250 kg) Carrera GT from zero-sixty two mph (zero-one hundred km/h) in lower than 4 seconds, zero-one hundred twenty five mph (zero-200 km/h) in below 10 seconds and to a prime observe pace of over 205 mph (330 km/h). A dry-sump oil gadget ensures dependable and constant oil provide and force at excessive engine speeds and all through excessive cornering forces.

The bottom impact physique design actually pulls the automobile to the highway at excessive speeds for steadiness and security, and the rear wing extends at speeds over seventy five mph (one hundred twenty km/h) to generate stabilizing rear downforce. Aluminum and leather-based dominate the inner, and the few concessions to “luxurious” embrace air-con, a stereo machine and energy home windows (which weigh not more than handbook home windows).

The racing-sort seats do with out energy adjusters to avoid wasting weight. Distinctive adjustable knee and leg helps grasp the motive force and passenger firmly in place. The instrument panel makes use of a shade TFT reveal to show three ranges of knowledge, relying on the motive force’s desires.
