VIDEO: Porsche Carrera GT Spotlight by Jason Cammisa
Porsche Carrera GT Spotlight
The Carrera GT has quite the widowmaker reputation — just like the original 911, which was known to call out inexperienced drivers in an explosion of oversteer. In this episode, Jason explores the origins of the CGT — and how its engine came from an ego-driven F1 flex from the company’s head of engine development proving to his boss that he could, in fact, build a Formula 1 engine. And how its chassis came from Porsche’s Le Mans prototype, the LMP2000, that was cancelled so that its budget could instead be used to turn the Volkswagen Touareg into a Porsche Cayenne.
