2005 Porsche Carrera GT
Unofficially, the Porsche Carrera GT is a racecar. . . a racecar built for the street. What makes it a racecar is not necessarily the huge power produced by its V10 engine or the carbon fiber construction that keeps everything very lightweight - although these features surely make it a fast car. It"s more the sum of its parts that make this car worth every bit of its $440,000 price tag.
The Porsche Carrera GT was introduced as a 2004 model and until 2005 there were already a few changes in order to make the Carrera GT the new Porsche super car. These were minor updates in order to make it a little more street friendly. Between the supplemental bar hoops is now mounted a glass screen. The seats height is adjusted along with the additional bolstering in the thigh area. The Carrera GT is easily recognizable, as it"s a low, sleek, lightweight roadster and very beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside. Two removable panels that can be stored in the front trunk make the foul weather protection available.
The car has unique features, among which are:
605 horsepower V10 engine
Monocoque chassis with Porsche-patented engine
Transmission mounts made of carbon-reinforced plastic
The first use of a ceramic composite clutch in a production car.
A very important aspect is that The Carrera is safe and stable at speeds up to 205 mph, thanks to its aerodynamic and race-bred suspension package.
The design of the suspension is so sophisticated that the shape of its components improves the Carrera GT s aerodynamics. The designers used lightweight materials such as magnesium for the car"s substantial wheels and the frames of its special sport seats, the result being a faster and safer car. To prove so, the Carrera GT accelerates from a standing start to 62 mph (100km/h) in only 3.9 seconds reaches 100 mph (160 km/h) in less than seven seconds, 125 mph (200 km/h) in less than 10 seconds, and can achieve a top test-track speed of 205 mph (330 km/h).
What makes this car have these impressive results is it"s 5.5 liter, normally aspirated V10 engine for racing created in the development center in Weissach, Germany. That engine"s bores have been enlarged to displace 5.7 liters in the Carrera GT. It has
a very low center of gravity, a 68-degree V angle and four valves-per-cylinder heads. Since the block, crankshaft and camshafts are all made of light alloys, the engine weights only 472 pounds (214 kg).
To stop this "monster", Porsche s team used a high-tech braking system. Developed for demanding motorsports applications, ceramic brakes are the first to work for on-road use. The massive 15 inch ventilated discs and six-piston calipers have the amazing capacity of bringing the car to a sure and safe stop, matched only by the stunning acceleration of Carrera GT.
Porsche Carrera GT is definitely has an exotic appearance. It's a car that can do it all: fascinate you with its good looks and astound you with its performance and abilities on the race track.
