    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    Hey all, i'm the "Mike" who Christian (RC) speaks of. I hope you all enjoy the video, its pretty good! More videos to come hopefully...

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    Awesome video! Thanks RC! I can only imagine how unbeliveable that ride must have been.

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    you have to admit that video conveys about 1% of the emotion experienced in that car around that track driven in that manner

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    Ahhhhh, it sounds so beautiful

    Thanks Mike and RC

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    I love the sound during the powerslides!!!

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    RC dude,
    Massive hangover this morning from Aberdeen!
    This is a fantastic wake up call!
    Thank you mate!

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    Mike,

    Thanks so much for hosting the video.

    RC,

    That was quite a ride. Thanks for sharing

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    I fantastic machine. It certainly took the "curve out of the curves". Also a great piece of camera work considering the ride. This will be one great track car.

    However contrary to what others thought, I was disappointed in the sound. Instead of the wonderful high pitched whine, all I heard was a raspy muffled exhaust. I attribute that to the top being on and camera sound distortion.

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    Great ride, but the engine sound is not that fantastic, this only might be due to the video file.

    Trust me,it's the video file.
    You can really sense and hear how immensely strong the engine is.

    Right. I shot the video with a digital camera, not a real video cam.

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    The sound from inside the car with the top on seems to have less of the "whooooop,... whooooop,... etc." characteristic than the video CF posted some time ago from outside the car at a distance.

    Porsche's own recordings are somewhat similar in the "On Track in Weissach" clips available in the CGT model information section of the web site.

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    yep, top on sound from the inside isn't remotely as good as top off from the inside which isn't remotely as good as the sound from the outside.

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    This little file sounds a bit different...
    Greetings,
    --Pierre

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    Thanks Pierre

    That sounds like others I've heard recorded from outside the CGT at some distance.

    Mike, I watched my video over and over again and I came to the conclusion that the sound is pretty accurate.
    Don't forget that I was sitting inside the car with the roof tops attached. Pierre took that small movie from outside and of course the Carrera GT sounds almost like a Formula One car (with a deeper tone) from outside.
    I guess you have to drive your CGT without the roof tops to get that gorgeous sound but believe me, even with the roof tops attached, the CGT sounds great.

    If you guys are interested, I can re-compress the original video and offer a bigger output file (larger screen) to provide a more accurate video quality.

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    very nice video RC, thanks for sharing
    I noticed that white Cayenne at the end of the movie, thats my big baby!!

    I am sure that you are exactly right about the sound, RC.

    The formula-1-like "whoooop, ... whoooop, ..." going through the gears is clearly a sound most evident from a distance. I'm sure that one can hear this quality to some extent no matter whether the listener is inside, with or without the top, or outside. The observer's position only serves to emphasize one group of sounds over the other, with more bass tones the closer one is to the car (motor?).

    Somewhere on the web, there is an in-garage (Leipzig?) video of a yellow CGT, sitting in a service bay, in which the motor is being revved to quite high UPM's. It also very clearly has the "whooop" sound. The camera seems to be positioned about 3-5 meters behind the car in this case, but since it is inside a building, some of the sound tones may be reinforced more than others.

    At least that's my theory

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    very kool vid RC--

    *obviously*


    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    mike, i think this is the one you're referring to:

    "Carrera GT engine rev"

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    Thanks, Ben.

    That's the one

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    Super Klasse RC

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    Just read the following (sorry if this is old news):
    The Porsche Carrera GT was awarded "Best Dream Car 2004" in Road & Track Magazine's inaugural Readers' Choice Award. The survey was conducted entirely online, polling automotive consumers and enabling them to voice their opinion for "Best Car 2004" and "Best Dream Car 2004." These awards will be featured in the April issue of Road & Track, available at newsstands on March 9.

    Re: Leipzig Carrera GT Event - VIDEO

    I wasn't going to comment, but I couldn't resist.

    That first drift, the poise and sheer controllability is breathtaking....

    The sound is a bit muted, but its a supercar, and it sounds very F1.

    Yes, I have the article right next to me. The Carrera GT beat out the Aston Martin DB9, the Bentley Continental GT, the Rolls-Royce Phantom, the Lamborghini Gallardo, the Ferrari Challenge Stradale and the Maybach 57 for the title of "Reader's Choice Dream Car of the Year, 2004".

    This is somewhat unrealated, but, does porsche have any presence in F1 annymore? (aside from adverts of course)
