Carrera GT video
 
As a counterpoint to all the talk about Porsche producing a 4 door Saloon to compete with the BMW 5 series and the possible announcement in a couple of weeks, lets look at something sensible:

Quote from 911 & Porsche World
"Option 1 was a 2+2 front-engined sports car to compete against with the Merc SL, but the sub-boxster car was ruled out because of low profitability and also the danger of diluting the Porsche brand."

I thought the SL cost a bit more than a Boxster, and a sports car can now dilute the Porsche brand when a 5-series competitor would enhance it?????!!!!!!

The CGTs pull away like a slingshot at will...beautiful.

Hard to understand the current Porsche philosophy. Any quality sports car should not dilute the brand as much as a sedan or SUV...

I think Porsche wanted...and probably needed to increase it's market share. A la SUV.....

Is this fair?
99 stang=335 bhp
go play with a carrera and the stang still will be crap.
Why not test the carrera against a viper or ferrari instead of this crap?

He did a good job filming go at that speed. Just goes to show you how great in sound, style, and performance those Carrera GTs really are. I was impressed of the GTs.
