Unveiled at the 2003 Geneva Auto Show, the 2003 Carrera GT was Porsche’s first concept car since the last 959 rolled off the line in 1988. It’s also astounding. Porsche has taken the use of lightweight materials to a new level with its carbon-fiber monocoque chassis, magnesium wheels, and titanium pushrods. Never before had such materials come together in a car. The result is a motor with almost zero rotational inertia, and a chassis that has nearly zero flex. And yes, it’s light. The 5.7-liter V10 creates 605 horsepower and throttle response likened to an F1 racing car. The Carrera GT will hit 124 mph in less than 10 seconds and has a top speed of 205 mph. What sets this supercar apart is the lack of electronic aids. There is no traction or stability control; there are no paddle shifters or automatic rev matching. This is a driver’s supercar that is superbly engineered and puts the responsibility of reaching its performance potential firmly with the pilot. Unlike faster cars in its class, handling in corners was not compromised for top speed potential.
— Official description [1]

The 2003 Porsche Carrera GT - abbreviated as Porsche Carrera or Carrera GT - is a mid-engined supercar by Porsche that first appeared in Forza Motorsport, Forza Motorsport 2, and Forza Motorsport 3.

It returned in all Porsche expansion add-ons for the Forza series and in Forza Horizon 3 as part of the Outback Field Trip and New Year's Special Forzathon events. It is featured as standard in Forza Motorsport 7, Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Street.

Synopsis

Codenamed Typ 980,[2] the Carrera GT was designed to replace the Porsche 911 GT1 Straßenversion as Porsche's newest halo car of the 2000s decade. Similar to the GT1, its development was closely tied with motorsport racing, although the Carrera GT was made to be more usable for everyday driving.

Porsche produced 1270 units of the Carrera GT which were sold until 2006. A successor - the Porsche 918 Spyder - was released in 2014.

The Carrera GT has a monocoque chassis that features strong structural rigidity and only weighs 220 lb (100 kg) thanks to using carbon fiber, aluminum and other materials. In order to maintain stability at high speeds, the Carrera GT uses underbody diffusers that work in combination with a rear wing to make use of ground effect, effectively increasing downforce as a result. Its chassis is also equipped with pushrod-actuated inboard suspension, heavy-duty carbon ceramic brakes and weighs 3528 lb (1600 kg) in total. The rear wing of the Carrera GT is deployed at speeds above 70 mph (113 km/h).[3]

The Carrera GT features a mid-mounted V10 engine with variable valve timing and drysump lubrication that puts down 605 hp (451 kW) at 8000 rpm and 435 ft·lb (590 N·m) at 5750 rpm. The car is officially claimed to perform 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) acceleration in 3.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h), which is actually higher in each Forza title.[4]

Performance

The Carrera GT's main strong suit is straight-line performance as it can hit at least 205 mph (330 km/h) and go from 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) in only seven seconds. As a result, the Carrera GT is up to par with most modern supercars such as the 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS in that field. Due to a high weight, the Carrera GT tends to understeer in sharp bends although it produces sufficient downforce for handling high-speed corners. However, the strong engine output also requires precise throttle controls upon corner entries as its rear tends to break out in poorly-executed corner entries.
