    Carrera GT spyshots?

    I was wondering, were there ever any spyshots of carrera GT prototypes?
    I know it was first shown to the public as a concept on the Paris autoshow, but were there ever any prototypes spotted on the road?

    Same goes for the 918 btw. I don't recall ever having seen pictures of a camouflaged 918 ...

    As far as the 918 is concerned, I think there never have been spy pics, as there never has been a prototype around. The 918 is so far a one-off, the prototype could not drive (remember this funny video where this particular 918 was only crawling?) and the whole 918-project was developed within months only.

    Thank you, have never seen these before. Interesting which components they decided to hide or alter since the concept car was already out.

     


    Re: Carrera GT spyshots?

    Years ago, someone posted these here, I believe. Driving in Death Valley and came across these German engineers with their test cars.Dscn0009.jpgCarrera GT Testing.jpg

    See the test equipment in this last one?

    What is the yellow one doing so naked and sexy inbetween the test mules...

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Carrera GT spyshots?

    Thanks so much guys! Now that you show them, I do remember the ones at deathvalley, but I'm pretty sure I never saw the ones with the taped-off engine humps.

    BTW, look at the 993 mirrors of the silver one at deatvalley!

    I do recall btw that the ones in death valley were spotted AFTER the introduction of the CGT, so the silver and black one may have been mules for something else, where the yellow one is an actual CGT for reference?

    Really old pictures :) Good times! I have a video of one somewhere on an older hard drive as well as I had to join some website and pay them to watch a 2 minute clip of the Carrera GT mule car go around the 'Ring
