    Carrera GT Snowwhite?

    Where's the prince to kiss it awake?

    BTW: the Cayenne towing the CGT during the CGT Roadshow through Germany is a Cayenne V6. Porsche should have used the Turbo instead.

    Porsche's version of the classic dog and pony show ?

    ...and we know which one is the "dog"...

    sorry--I couldn't help myself...

    Re: Carrera GT Snowwhite?

    It's also a PR event for the Cayenne V6 as it demonstrates even the base model can be trusted to tow a CGT. I'd bet they didn't take a route involving any mountain passes though.

    I have a few pics dude!

    Of what? A Cayenne V6 towing a Carrera GT through the mountains?

    Whatever you have, post it so we can see!

    Re: Carrera GT Snowwhite?

    Re: Carrera GT Snowwhite?

    if you are interested in some pictures of the CGT roadshow, check this out:
    http://www2.porsche.de/isapi/german/deu/carreragt/roadshow/default.asp

    all the porsche centers marked with a dark grey spot have already been visited -- and pictures of the event can be viewed if you click at the name.

    btw, the CGT was at my porsche center last weekend. but i'd lie if i tell you that it was a cool event. it wasn't. free coffee and soup and the CGT (with lots of fingerprints on it) surrounded by a GT3 RS, a turbo with aerokit and 2 GT3's. but it all looked pretty unspectacular. which may also be due to the fact that a) the engine wasn't running and b) the CGT was surrounded by people that (just my guess) haven't ever driven a porsche or ever will. this shall not sound dismissive, but the whole event was somehow unclassy. not living up the expectations, having in mind the price of this car.

    Sounds like the typical US car show to me (where the new Rolls, Ferraris, Lambos, Porsches, etc can be seen). Must be the same everywhere around the world

    Re: Carrera GT Snowwhite?

    Hey Mike,
    My friend is taking delivery of his GT in 3 weeks, he might let you drive it in exchange for a good price on your latest Valentine.

    Re: Carrera GT Snowwhite?

    Mike, That friend of ours; already has a Valentine 1, and swears by it ! But I can arrange a drive in his GT, and I do need one ! Revvv

    How about a special Carrera GT Edition of the Valentine One? I'm serious, maybe even in Porsche Design?
    I bet a lot of owners would spend serious money for it.
    It doesn't have to be gold plated ( ) but some nice features (stealth kit with exterior display) would be great.
    What do you say, Mike?

    Mike,
    I'd hold out until Porsche comes out with a Valentine One special edition of the Carrera GT. A guy has his pride!

    I was at the same event and they started up the CGT and revved it properly upon my request. It all was because I was considering to sign a contract for one. The sound was out of this world. Almost pure F1. I will get one as a result of this...

    I would wish for a different event too. Not more classy, just a track event where I could drive the car like it was meant to be driven...

    I just came back from Mannheim.

    I hope it is not too big
