Find out why this Connecticut-based Porsche-specialist is considered the by-word for anything to with the Carrera GT

The Porsche Carrera GT is a unicorn in the automotive world. With a mere 1,270 ever produced, it’s a true collector’s dream. Even after 2 decades, the Carrera GT continues to strike a chord in the hearts of automobile enthusiasts everywhere. The Carrera GT wasn’t just another supercar; it was built to shatter expectations. Its sleek design housed a phenomenal 5.7-liter V10 engine, practically unchanged from the Le Mans 2000 race car, tuned down for street use. This translates to blistering acceleration, the Carrera reached 0-60 MPH in a mere 3.5 seconds. With a top speed exceeding 205 MPH, the Carrera GT was a force to be reckoned with.

Think stuff like the five-gauge instrument cluster with the big analog tachometer in the center, or the twist-and-turn Le Mans-style starter that sits to the left of the steering wheel.
