2000 Porsche Carrera GT Concept

For the 2000 Paris Motor Show, Porsche prepared a concept supercar that eventually turned into a limited production car.

The concept’s basic shape and specification were close the production version, which included a low-mounted V10 engine that was sourced from their scrapped Le Mans prototype program in 1999.

Two functioning concepts were produced for both the European and North American show circuits. Unlike the production version, they used an LCD to display for instrumentation, had alcantara interior and custom metal switch gear throughout.
