    CGT ride

    Wow! This car is absolutely everything they claim it is - and more. It's also just gorgeous. Words and pictures just can't describe the perfection Porsche has executed.

    Re: CGT ride

    Despite your last sentence, we want more words and pictures!!


    Re: CGT ride

    Hi John.

    Sorry, but I didn't take any pictures. I have just about all of them I've ever seen on the web together with all the articles written about it (and the pictures that go along with them). So, I figured I would add very little value in taking a few more hack shots. However, Porsche had two private photograhers taking pictures for us throughout the day and will send a bound deal to us later with them. I'll post some of those if any of them are anything special.

    As for words, I was just fairly speechless. The car rotates so beautifully and corners so flat you just wouldn't believe it without riding in it. The sound is out of this world, and I have never come close to experiencing the braking Gs this car produces! The two guys providing the taxi rides were recent Le Mans winners and really put on a show. You just can't believe the speed taken into and through the corners with that car. And, the drivers claimed to be running at about 8.5/10!

    Re: CGT ride

    Fine, you're off the hook for pics then.

    What's your expected use, or mix of uses, for the CGT? Can it actually trundle around town? I recently saw a very slick video of the CGT driving through some metropolitan area which, of course, was completely devoid of other cars; probably shot at dawn. It seems clear the CGT is intoxicating in both speed and sound when running at pace, but as those of us who live in metropolitan areas know so well, you have to negotiate pot holes, narrow roads, parking lots, etc. just to get to the open roads where you can let loose.

    Re: CGT ride

    it's going to be a bit of a PIA as was my 996 when it was lowered to appx 4" of ground clearance (the CGT is 3.5"). that said, i'm not too worried about it but will have to go back to going slower over speed bumps, etc and taking inclines at a angle. i'm planning to drive the car pretty much when and how i drive my 996 now - whenever i want and like i stole it. then again, my current one is not a primary driver really.
