That must be a rocketship, I read about the vehicle and it sounds like a legal race car. A good item to put in your "if I hit the progressive" in vegas file. A dude's dad where I work hit last week for 4.1 mil while staying at ceasars palace...I'd get one right away if I were him...

oh yah!!!
at my local dealership, i went to buy a dme relay and of course i had to walk through the showroom to get to the parts center.......and there it was...a black Carrera GT......
i was able to take a closer look and that thing is sweeeeet.....i looked in the engine bay and it was crazy!!! v10 with carbon fiber frame supports and what it looked like to me to be the rear suspension setup.......i was like a little boy in a toy store......
-sigh-

then again, $400+k to get me to 60 mph in 3.9 sec? now back to reality....

Saw one also at the Chicago Auto Show. I went to the local dealer in Madison to get some info on the Caymen and low and behold there on the showroom floor was a GT. The car was covered because it was already sold and the owner was on a trip. I bent down and reached under the cover and touched her on the rocker panel. I felt soooo naughty. But now when I see it driving around town I can giggle to myself knowing that I touched her before her owner saw her.

Shoot, just take a 914, throw a v8 with a couple turbos, upgrade suspension and brakes... little bit of creative fiberglassing, and you have a mini CGT

Whats amazing about the CGT is that its a NA engine. Not that twin turbo'ing a V-8 isn't sweet, but it has the TT

Saw my first one this weekend also. Was driving back from a party and spotted it on the showroom floor. Couldnt help but stop and take a peak from the sidewalk.

Bluebullet, your pictures look strangely like mine! Thats at the P-car dealer in Freeport, off Sunrise highway right?





I took these pictures saturday night!

Will you be attending the PCA autocross this sunday?

C-GT Saw a yellow one on the road. If you think it looks good on the show room floor- they sound soo sweeet !!!! out on the road. This local guy here in central Utah loves to drive his and drive it hard. The NA V10 sounds like an F1 car as he pulls away. But $ for $ I get more enjoyment from my 87 924s. At lest I like to think so.
