Porsche Carrera GT

Porsche Carrera GT

The Porsche Carrera GT is one of the last great analog supercars. The V10 powered mid-engined machine managed to combine classic Porsche lines with modern ultra-high performance design elements.

The Carrera GT was originally intended to race at Le Mans, but the project was shelved. Fortunately, the road going version was produced and it made for quite a street legal car.

Powering the GT is a 5.7-liter V10 engine that produces 605 horsepower. The power plant is mated to a great 6-speed transmission that helps get all of that power to the wheels. Many think that the clutch is too firm. However, others, including Jay Leno, think it is perfect.

Check out the below video of a Porsche Carrera GT as it is driven at a supercar event. The footage captures the sound as well as the styling of the wonderful automobile.
