    Re: Car Magazine,Carrera GT

    thanks!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Car Magazine,Carrera GT

    The raised center console looks nice, but I've always wondered if it might be awkward to reach the shifter. But these are the first photos I have seen that include someone actually sitting in the driver's seat, and the shifter seems to sit lower than I thought.

    Has anyone on this board actually sat in a CGT? Or have any of the magazines mentioned it yet? What's the driving position like?

    Several members on this board including myself have orders for this car and have been to the driving event in Leipzig.
    You can read our reports on the Porsche board.
    The positioning of the gear lever is perfect, the whole car is perfect actually.

    You can read the reports here:

    Re: Car Magazine,Carrera GT

    Thanks CF! Information like that is why I joined this board.

    The CGT itself is a little out of my price range, but I have heard speculation that the raised console will trickle down eventually to the 911/Boxster.

    A couple of years ago, Porsche designed a "virtual concept car" for the steel industry, showing how an ultra-lightweight design could be achieved without resorting to exotic materials. That design, which existed only on paper, included a raised center console much like the CGT's, but this was supposed to an econo/compact car.

    The point is, if Porsche would contemplate using a raised console for a "cheap" car, why not the 911/998? It could become another Porsche trademark, like putting the ignition on the left.

    i'd think it much more natural and convenient a placement as the driver doesn't have near the area to travel from the steering wheel to shift allowing more time for both hands to be on the wheel.
