Porsche Carrera GT
The Carrera GT is the latest supercar made by Porsche. It was sold to the public from 2004 until 2006. It was the successor to the Porsche 911 GT1, and its successor will be the Porsche GT1 in 2009 or 2010. It was the first production Porsche to have a V10 engine.

Though it was originally slated to receive a turbocharged flat 6 engine, Porsche decided to use a V10 engine it had been working on for its racing cars since 1992. The V10 had duel overhead cams and made 612 horsepower.

The Porsche Carrera GT was sold to the public for a price of $440,000, though some sold for more due to high demand. Porsche is not known for making supercars, so when they do come along there is generally significant interest in them.

The original production run called for 1,500 Carrera GTs to be built, but Porsche would only end up making 1,270. Nearly half of them were sold in the United States. The reason the car was discontinued was due to a change in airbag regulations in the United States. The cost to develop a way to comply with these regulations for the next year's Carrera GT was too much for such a low production car. These supercars are not intended to be modified and tinkered wiht every year like most other cars.

The Porsche Carrera GT was innovative for its time, with over 75 technology patents filed just for developments made on this car.

If you would like to buy a Porsche Carrera GT, good luck! You'll have to search far and wide, and you still might not find one. I've seen a couple pop up on eBay of all places, so you might want to keep your eyes peeled on there.
