    Pretty sweet, eh. The only bummer is that the car sounds SO much sweeter on the outside than on the inside. It does help (A LOT!) to have the tops off though.

    Re: Carrera GT Engine Sounds

    That thing sounds freaking awesome!

    Re: Carrera GT Engine Sounds

    Sounds like a mixture of a drill, a blowdryer, an electric toy car and a Formula 1. Pretty cool and very intense on one hand, but not as sweet as the normal Porsche engine sound IMHO.

    Oh in real life I'm "certain" you would say unequivocally it is the best sounding Porsche (if not car) you have ever heard. Even the Fcar guys who hear it just can't stop talking about how amazingly Formula it sounds.

    Re: Carrera GT Engine Sounds

    Ben, I love the sound, just seems like its totally diff. at idle no?

    What makes the car sound so special is what you hear is the engine roar and not exhaust. Listening to the car as it pulls away under full acceleration is glorious.

    Ben is right it sounds a lot better outside the car.

    Porsche should really use this platform to replace the 911.It has everything from superior handling, beautiful styling and fantastic sound. Instead we will get another several years of a millimeter change here, a tuck there and sell it as a completely new 911.

    CGT price: 400.000EUR
    911 price: 70.000EUR

    Yeah, that would work

    yes, a replacement engine (which is responsible for that glorious sound) alone is 2X the price off an entire 911.

    Typical in the box thinking. There is no doubt they can build a lesser version CGT at a fraction of the cost. But why should they so long as the great drivers of the world are buying the archaic platform of an engine sitting behind the rear axle.

    Reagrding the 430, if you cannot comprehend the difference between it and the 360 then the fog of Porsche indoctrination has blinded you. Compare the difference between the 996 and 997 and tell me it is substantial. Let me see, oval headlights and an incredible 5 hp increase. WOW! A total makeover.

    Nick, it does get very exhausting when you repeat it over and over and over again in every thread to saciety, even out of context. Fortunately for some of us, Porsche is not for you. Just get over it and move on with your life. The only reason I can think of for employing tiresome repetition is in order to provoke and just stir up people, you seem to be obsessed with this fanatical crusade instead of just enjoying your Ferrari which has nothing to do with Porsche

    As to the differences between the 996 and 997, its nice to see all you focused on and cared about is the EXTERIOR looks and paper specs I somehow expected that, but I recommend you "drive" one (thats what they are meant for actually) and see for yourself, if you can tell the difference, I rest my case, and if you can't, then I rest my case too

    hehe I bet it does but see I wouldn't know so I make up for it the best I can and work with what I have Now I remember a lot of Carrera GT owners promising videos and such but I guess they forgot enjoying the car.

    Anyways Nick does make valid points but I believe he is a bit biased towards the 911. Sure the 996 and 997 look alike but in the recent tests I saw they say that the 997 drives much better than the 996 and as Carlos said these cars are meant to be driven

    Re: Carrera GT Engine Sounds

    wow, i really want to hear a carrera gt in person !

    Re: Carrera GT Engine Sounds

    The CGT sound is very unique, and very sporty, but for me personally, the car I could listen to all day long is the Zonda's AMG V12...

    I like its sound too but the CGT is so god damn awsome.

    Re: Carrera GT Engine Sounds

    Well I know im biased, but seriously, The R129 SL73 with exact engine sounded incredibly bad, the Zonda however.....
