Thank you.

It is an F50, another car whose lack of popularity flummonxes me.......another of my favourtites, and, just like the CGT, very much race derived.

Default Porsche Carrera GT

Spotted the new shape Porsche Carrera GT inside the body shop with a broken windshield glass, it resembles the designs clues of Ferrari in some viewing angles.

Nice pictures, the Carrera GT looks stunning in that red colour. But somehow I feel that the brown interiors do not go well with the red exterior. Black interiors would have looked divine

Is this 'New' Carrera GT? or Porsche GT1 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia?
It looks like the old Carrera GT itself!
AFAIK the production of Carrera GT was stopped way back in 2006.

It looks like the Ferrari 458 Italia's ugly German cousin! I love the performance figures on the Porsche but lets face it they have the laziest design team in the world. Porsche lovers please don't lynch me !

What's so new about it? Looks no different than the rest of the 1270 CGTs made.

Thanks for sharing the pics, Anil! The Carrera GT looks stunning in that shade albeit it is still the regular CGT.

Dear Dr. D, I am in all agreement with Porsche 911's being absolutely stubborn with regards to exterior design! but, and this is a big BUT, you gotta see the CGT in flash to believe how beautiful this car is (speaking from personal experience). Probably the most beautiful car made in the last decade. Just my two pennies; of course you can say Bah to my words since looks are always subjective.
