    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    Sign me up! I have seen the pictures and it's almost incredulous.

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    Great discovery, RC

    All the best news seems to come in the wee hours of the morning

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    PLEASE POST PICS ASAP!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is extremely exciting!!! See what did I tell you, Porsche does have a lot of exciting things coming our way!!!

    If I got this car, I'd drive it on the street, I could give a ****t less about street rules and regulaitons when it comes to the CGT! EXCUSE ME THE CGT-T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    excuse my manners, but...


    HOLY [****]!

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    Holy crap!

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    Hmmm...I vaguely recall CF saying, "there will be no turbo CGT".

    It's a day early for April fool's jokes, isn't it?

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    I don't mean to be a naysayer, but why would someone pay $500,000 for just 17% more power (and less exact throttle response). Seems that they should've gotten close to 1,000hp with a motor like that if tuners can get 650hp from the 996TT. Anyways, I'm sure it will be incredible, but I think I'd buy the "regular" CGT instead (if I had the $$$), although I wonder if any CGT customers will be perturbed - thinking they were buying Porsche's finest...

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    Good call on the April Fools (already April in German )!!!

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    hahaha they got you didn't they

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    I think the tip-off was the platinum and gold key with the diamond in the middle!

    And I'm still trying to picture spokes in the shape of the Porsche crest!

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    aaaahh..noooooooooooooo..... coome ooooon...

    PLEEEASEEE don't tell me it's a joke

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    RC, It is your April Fools Joke for sure ! Single Turbo on a V-
    motor; don't be silly ! Good job ! Revvv

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    Look!

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    oh damn RC, you're too cruel, even for april fools, like giving the best candy in the world to a kid, then taking it away

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    Yes, you're right - I think I'll get one of those anyways I guess it's easy to put your foot in your mouth when you don't read the whole post carefully (Porsche crest wheels should've done it too). I've been had

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    Somehow I was stupid enough to believe you RC? You got me!

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    RC,
    This is so exciting, you are really amazing!!!
    It's such a shame though, I just called Porsche to order it and they told me I don't qualify because I don't have enough hair on my chest and because I don't have the compulsory Porsche tatoo on my forehead...
    Really sad, but that's ok, M5er, please post pics when you get yours!

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    You know; the Orange GT really does look trick !!! Revvv

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    That was a very good one RC remind me not to play poker with you

    I must be sick or a weirdo cause I didn't even notice the part about the wheels, diamond, and othe pimp accesories, I just got caught up already on the ONE turbocharger on the V10 and the resulting 741HP ... "can't be posible!" "why would Porsche do such a thing!" "its got to be TWO small turbos and 900HP!" "there must be a mistake or is it a joke?"... and never realised the rest of the stuff

    Re: Carrera GT Turbo is coming...

    You thought I'm kidding, right?

    Well, the Carrera GT Turbo is for real, here's the PICTURE.
    Enjoy.
