Car of the Week: 2007 Porsche Carrera GT


While you may never get the opportunity to drive in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, you can still experience its thrill by enjoying the racing pleasures of the 2007 Porsche Carrera GT. No stranger to this Gran Prix endurance race, Porsche continues to master race car excellence in The Carrera GT. Combining lightweight alloys with a 5.7 liter V10 engine that bolsters its acceleration abilities, the GT springs from 0 to 62 mph in less than 4 seconds. Porsche’s use of magnesium alloy in its wheels and sport seat frames along with a carbon fiber chassis enable rocket-like explosion well before you sample the full 6 speed transmission. But never fear…with traction control and pushrod-operated suspension, the ability to mesh power, speed and control is guaranteed.

In classic Porsche fashion, the ignition remains on the left in the GT carried over from original designs of Le Mans race cars when drivers had to run to their cars at race start. Left sided ignition and a gearshift high on the right allowed not only for a rapid start but for racing efficiency. Complete with soft leather seating, a Bose audio sound, and a navigational system, you are invited to lose yourself for hours in luxurious pleasure. Harness the 612 horses, strap yourself tight, and imagine you are negotiating the roads of France. Feel the history of a true Le Mans heritage.
