Porsche Carrera GT
If you could afford the $440,000 price tag and were able to handle a vehicle that goes from zero to 60 in just under four seconds and tops out at a blistering 208 miles per hour (actually clocked on an old Soviet runway in eastern Germany left over from the Cold War), the Porsche Carrera GT was the sports car to have. Made at the Porsche factory in Leipzig between 2004 and 2007, it was listed by Sports Car International as the top sports car of the new century and Number Eight on the the publication's list of Top Sports Cars of All Time (just behind two other Porsche models, the 356 and the 911 Carrera RS).
The Porsche Carrera GT was a direct descendant of the 911 GT1 of the 1990s. Originally, the intention was to equip the vehicle with an air cooled six cylinder pancake engine like other Porsche products, but that got changed to the company's new V10, a secret design dating back to 1992. After several delays (due to work on the Cayenne SUV and internal politics at the Volkswagen Group AG), a concept car was built and introduced in 2000 at the Paris Motor Show. Ironically, it was money from sales of the Cayenne that enabled the Porsche company to proceed with development and marketing of a street legal production model - even though the initial $448,000 sticker price was bound to narrow that market considerably.
The Porsche Carrera GT finally arrived at U.S. dealerships in early 2004. During its three year production run, only about 1200 vehicles had been made, with more than half of them being sold in the U.S. and Canada.
The Porsche Carrera GT was equipped with a 5.7 liter V10, rated at a burning 620 horses. Color choices were limited at first (red, yellow, black, silver and gray), but toward the end, a well-heeled customer could order a special color for a price. As one might imagine, that powerful V10 needed a lot of cooling, which is why it featured large air intakes on the sides and a lightweight, carbon fiber hood. It should also come as no surprise that the Porsche Carrera GT was equipped with oversized, ceramic composite brakes as well as a spoiler that went into action once the speedometer hit 70.
Inside, the upholstery was genuine Spanish leather. One would also find a high-end Bose stereo system as well as onboard navigation. One interesting feature of most Porsche models is the placement of the ignition key on the left side of the steering column. The reason: back in the early days of automobile racing, drivers had to run out to their vehicles, jump in and start the engines before taking off. Such placement gave Porsche drivers a slight edge, as it was possible to have one hand on the wheel with the other free to throw the car into gear for a quick getaway.
