They don't make the Carrera GT anymore. Go look under pre owned and the 911 and the Carrera GT are under different categories. You haven't proved squat either. Obviously you didn't look at the Motor Trend link I posted up either.

Sorry to screw up your thread but Bob thinks he is always right and I just saw an opportunity to prove him wrong.

As for the vid, please make sure the car is fully warmed up before you rev the crap out of it.

If it wasn't a 911, you wouldn't see it listed as a 911 Carrera GT ANYWHERE!!!!

Where do you see it listed as a 911? Peopel make mistakes when describing stuff. The links you gave are not creditable sources. I told you to go under pre owned cars at Porsche.com and you can see that 911 and Carrera GT are two different cars. I provided the proof. Why don't you accept the fact that your not always right? Motor Trend listed is as Carrera GT and nothing more. Look at the freaking link!!!!!!!!!!!!! Carrera GT!!!!!!!!! Now your just being a child. Your wrong I'm right. Accept it.

Look here. Do you see at Carrera GT option???? No you don't. A GT2/3 is not the same car either. But if you go back you can see that you can choose either 911 or Carrera GT. Again I have provided proof from a creditable source and all you have is your dick in your hand.

I apologize in advance to going crazy off-topic with this thread.

The Carrera GT was built on the 911 platform (as were the 911 GT1 race cars), but that's the only similarity the vehicles share. The Carrera GT was built as a halo car for the prestigious automaker. Porsche 911's are 6 cylinder rear engine vehicles. Porsche makes such an effort to preserve this for the 911 line that even with the introduction of the better balanced Boxster/Cayman chassis, they insisted on the Rear-engine layout for the 997's. If you want, try googling a Cayman S with the boxer engine from the 911's... and it far out-performs the 911's due to balance and weight.

The Carrera GT, aforementioned, is a Mid-engined 5.7L V10. Yes, it was built on a 911 chassis, but it's a completely different car. The lineage of the Carrera GT does not go back to the 911 line, but to the Le Mans GT1 race cars. This is why the vehicle is not a "911 Carrera GT" but just "Carrera GT".

Recently, the 997 911 GT3's and GT2's have received some parts and technology from the Carrera GT, but that's just the filtering down of parts within a company. Side note, the 997 GT2 is the new "King" for Porsche, as it is a better performing car than the Carrera GT.

Nomenclature wise, a 911, is a rear engine, flat-six 'boxer' engine that is the quintessential Porsche. The Carrera GT is the halo car for Porsche, but is not in production anymore. It is NOT a '911 Carrera GT" nor is it a true "911".

Note: I actually like Bob, he takes really nice pictures. As for Christian, he's a cool dude too. Good guy to hang out with that's where i stand, haha.

Thank you Larson! You proved my point, the Carrera GT was built off the 911 chassis, which I have been saying all along!!

AS ORIGINALLY STATED^^

Different car, as Larson just stated. (sounds familiar, eh?)

So what, my car shares the same platform as the 99-05 Jetta and 98+ New Beetle, THAT DOESNT MAKE THEM THE SAME CAR.

I never said the chassis wasn't the same. I said it's a different car. You kept insisting it's the same car when it's no where near it. And even then what is the same about the chassis? The front suspension? Other then that I'm sure they had to mod the crap out of it to go from a rear engine flat six to a mid engine V10.
