In the mid-2000’s Porsche introduced the world to the Porsche Carrera GT, a mid-engine supercar. The development of the Porsche Carrera GT began with the 911 GT1 and some of the technologies being developed by Porsche’s racing division in the late nineties. While the racing program was discontinued, much of the technology developed by that program remained. The production version of the Carrera GT was powered by a 5.7- liter V10 engine that produced 603 horsepower (450 kW). Porsche promoted the cars performance capabilities, boasting a 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h). The only available transmission was a six-speed manual. A total of 1,270 Porsche Carrera GT’s were built between 2004 and 2007.
