The Porsche Carrera GT is legendary. So much so that Doug DeMuro says it's his favourite. Here is why it's the best car ever made.
In 2004, Porsche released a mid-mounted sportscar the called the Carrera GT, and it immediately dropped jaws. This wasn't just because it looked pretty, it was because it was loaded with terrific technology and drove like nothing else.
This was Porsche's flagship supercar that pumped out 450kw from its naturally aspirated V10 powerplant. It did 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds and clocked out at 330kph as the driver swapped the six-speed box manually.
What makes the Porsche Carrera GT so spectacular is that it's one of the last authentic supercars; rear-wheel-drive, with no traction control and a chassis full of character. No DSG transmission or hybrid technology is hiding beneath the skin either, it's purely driver-focussed. The wheels have a centre-lock, which was exclusively used on racing cars at the time, and the rear wing was hydraulically operated.
Inside, plenty of thought went into luggage space, because the luggage compartment in the frunk is limited, especially with the roof stowed. There are even secret spaces in the door-jam and under the dash between the driver and passenger. There's space behind the seats and between the passenger seat and door, and all of these storage spaces come with a specific bag too.
There is so much more to the Porsche Carrera GT that makes it so extraordinary. We'll hand you over to YouTuber, Doug DeMuro, to take you for a drive and explain everything to you, from bumper to bumper. After all, this is his favourite car ever made.
