Porsche has made some incredible cars over the years. While there are certainly some models that are more popular than others, all of its offerings are classy. Still, a few just rise above the rest.
That’s certainly the case for this 2004 Porsche Carrera GT. Despite the fact that it’s more than 15 years old, this supercar has killer looks and the specs to match. Though it might not have the model year of some newer rides, this is a car you’ll want to be familiar with.
Decade Of Delight
The 2000s and 2010s were mixed decades. Some loved them, some hated them. This Porsche Carrera GT has been living its best life all throughout.
It is one of just 1,270 examples from a four-year production run. In the engine department, it boasts a 5.7L quad-cam V10 that pairs perfectly with a six-speed manual transaxle transmission.
Its carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic monocoque chassis cell and subframe come courtesy of Italy’s ATR composites. They help make this car sleek, aerodynamic, and light on its wheels. Of course, it’s impossible to miss the large side inlets and air dams which were consciously added to help cool the large engine while also adding a look of power.
Riding In Style
Like all cars with a Porsche logo, this one boasts a sharp interior that’s enough to please any driver (or passenger). It is trimmed in soft leather and boasts a Bose sound system.
It’s worth noting that the ignition button on this car is located to the left of the steering wheel. This is an ode to racing of the past when drivers needed to start up and shift into gear simultaneously.
While you probably won’t race this car today, it is still a badass ride—even 16 years later. Learn More
