    Midengined Carrera

    Who said that a Carrera never can't be a midengined car ?

    Re: Midengined Carrera

    Porsche was not allowed to sell this Baby under the original "904" name, because Peugeot already reserved this figure-combination - hence it was named the Carrera GTS.
    Impressive performance for the early sixties - from 0-100 in 5.5 sec. - just like my MY 06 987 S

    wow, stunning sight!

    And did that with a tiny 4cyl engine too. BTW, they made flat-6 and flat-8 versions too

    Re: Midengined Carrera

    I love you for those pics (in a non-homoerotic way )
    One of the most beautiful cars EVER ...hand drawn by Butzi, if i remember right

    Do you have more pics of it?:)

    Re: Midengined Carrera

    WOW, just WOW... i Love that car man! (in every erotic way possible btw )

    Re: Midengined Carrera

    Thanks for the pics. The GTS is my fav classic P car. I'd love to pick up one of the few (I think four) prototype flat sixes one day. There's a guy who specializes in brokering them in the US: http://www.the904store.com/

    I think a cherry GTS runs about $450K.

    Porsche built 120 cars equipped with the 4cyl engine from 1963-1965. I had a chat with the owner of the car in the pics, who said that only 6 cars have been equipped with the flat-6.

    The miracle of the stunning performance has been - like so often - leightweight construction. It was the first P-car ever with a plastic body. The street version was about 650 kg only
    The seats were not adjustable (you had to adjust the steering wheels and the pedals).
    Although this baby was designed as a track car in the first place, it performed very well as a Rallye car also (2nd place in Rallye Monte Carlo 1964).

    @ Brunner & Joost: nice to see your enthusiasm - my heart was jumping when I saw this beauty in the flesh (you're right- it has been designed by Butzi).

    Unfortunately I have no more pics of this beauty I took some 300 pics during the event (too much other nice cars - I felt like a kid in a candystore )

    Apropos other cars: this baby was the toughest competitor for the Carrera GTS on the track:
