    I doubt it. As far as I know no CGT has been delivered to US customers yet. Maybe it was something else, a replica, a modified Boxster or whatever.

    Re: CGT spotted in Michigan?

    May be they were shooting a ad. or something but again CGT doesn't need advertising.

    Most likley a test mule

    The thread quoted above said it was spotted on route 23 in Ann Arbor, MI.
    Automobile, Auto Week, Automotive News, and Car and Driver magazines all have their editorial offices in the area.

    I asked Csaba Csere a few weeks ago if C and D were going to be testing a CGT sometime soon (party crashing was on my mind) and he replied that his Porsche contact at the Tokyo motor show said that a USA test of the CGT would not be in the cards. Csaba then asked me if Car and Driver could test my CGT after it was delivered. I replied it would be old news by 2005, with which he agreed. I was glad he didn't want to test my car, since I've witnessed a few of their performance tests in progress. They get really good numbers in 0-60, etc., by not being so "gentle" as other testers.

    The car's Michigan mission has my interest, since it may be a factory car of some sort. To my knowledge, no customer deliveries anywhere in the world have happened so far. But, I could easily be mistaken. Maybe Keith Crane (Crane Communications -> AutoWeek & Automotive News) gets the first one?

    Re: CGT spotted in Michigan?

    Mike,

    I'm not too far away from Ann Arbor at the moment and I am seriously considering hunting for it. But why would Keith Crain get the 1st one? Surely Porsche has customers who would be in line in front of him. Seinfeld, perhaps? I assume it was a test vehicle (if it really was a GT), but I couldn't think of a valid reason there would be one in Michigan today.

    The first customer car goes to Seinfeld.
    According to my knowledge there will be no tests of the Carrera GT in the states this year.

    Re: CGT spotted in Michigan?

    Greg & Christian,

    It was just a wild guess with no special knowledge on my part. As an AutoWeek advertiser, I have occasionally run into Keith Crane in various places (like the Chicago auto show) and he always seems to tell me all about everyone he knows. I can't remember the details just now, but the dark recesses of my memory seem to recall some special story involving him and Porsche in the past. Maybe a few glasses of a good red will bring it back?

    He was a VIP close to route 23 that popped into my head.

    Pay no attention.
