    Carrera GT - Turbo Version Rumors

    I head rumors that Porsche plans a special version of the Carrera GT with a turbo charged V10 engine. Expected power should be in the 800-900 HP range.
    If the first 1000 Carrera GT sell well, there might be another 1000 Carrera GT with the turbo charged engine.
    This is a rumor, don't count on it.

    fanch....

    You see my friend my predication could come true. If it does, I'm going to sell my services as a fortune teller

    Re: fanch....

    if this rumour really becomes a reality, i suppose a lot of early GT buyers will be really piXXed...

    Yep, and many probably would cancel their order or put it on hold until they get some reliable info...

    Re: fanch....

    But guys at the same time the price would be probably way higher too. I'm sure they won't offere a 800hp CGT with the same price as the 612hp ones.
    And I'm sure they styling would be a little bit different too like the Turbo and the GT2.

    Re: fanch....

    i suppose that in these price regions the potential buyers do not really care if the car costs 100,000 USD more or less. they a) demand the ultra-special vehicle and/or b) see it as an investment.

    in both cases, the early ("ordinary") carrera GT would be IMO less cool. but i (unfortunately ) don't belong to the target audience, so it's just my guess

    Re: fanch....

    i do belong to this audience, and if this is true it would pi-- me off. i really dont like the way porsche is going about the handling off such a great car.

    It should be rare and a 1 time thing or every 10-20 yrs it doesnt have to always be about profit but more about proving that porsche is in the elite of the sportscar ranks.

    Re: fanch....

    If it becomes reallity ... Ferrari's Enzo will be beaten !


    Re: fanch....

    BTW. They won't make a 1000 of them if they will built it I guess. Think of a 400 units of a CGT Turbo.
    Just like the enzo.

    As far as I heard, the Turbo version of the Carrera GT will be substantially more expensive than the Carrera GT. Now don't ask me for a definition for the word substantial.
    This version might also be a car without street approval...for racing only. Again: these are rumors. But I can tell you one thing for sure (without giving away too much): Porsche is already testing much more power on the Carrera GT.
    This doesn't mean that they sell 1000 CGT and then build another 1000 with more power. Don't worry, the CGT will in fact stay a very unique car. The rumored turbo version will be more expensive and it might not be street legal.
