A Closer Look into the Carrera GT Rally

The rally mainly focussed on the driving roads in Napa and included multi-day drives venturing through technical switchbacks and open sweepers that put the CGT through its paces in various driving scenarios. The hills got a new burst of energy and became alive with the sound of music. It was fascinating to witness the art of 90 cylinders and 5,427 horsepower thundering through the mountain passes.

There were a lot of pit stops ranging from the Marshall Store Oyster Shack to the reputed culinary expert, French Laundry. The representatives from Porsche Classic were the surprise guests and joined the traveling group for the Thomas Keller-helmed dinner. The passers-by could not stop drooling over the impressive Carrera GTs at the parking lots of each stop.

There is a reason why the CGT is so admired. It is thoughtfully loaded with the unmistakable V10 soundtrack paired with a trusty six-speed manual transmission which is rare to find. The Carrera GT hails from an era that demanded the best from its companion behind the wheel.
