Carrera GT number 1,111 delivered to Middle East customer

Stuttgart. One Porsche customer in the United Arab Emirates has received a special Christmas present this year: Stuttgart-based Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche AG has delivered to the customer a Carrera GT bearing the number 1,111. With this milestone, the 612 hp, 330 km/h Carrera GT is now the most successful high-performance sports car of all time. The last unit of this exceptional vehicle will leave the Leipzig plant in April 2006.

According to Dr. Wendelin Wiedeking, Chief Executive of the Stuttgart car maker: “The Carrera GT has once again strengthened the Porsche brand image as a sports car manufacturer and demonstrated that our product strategy has really hit the mark. What’s more, Porsche has made money with the Carrera GT. In this respect, this sports car has also been an economic success for our company, as expected.” Since the vehicle was first presented on September 28, 2000 in the Louvre, Paris, the Carrera GT has set the pace in this segment. “It is still in the top position to this day. The Carrera GT has thus earned a special place in Porsche’s 57-year history of success,” adds Wiedeking.

The most important market for the Carrera GT remains North America, where around half of the vehicles have been sold. Significant numbers have also been sold in the traditional Porsche markets of Germany, the UK, Italy and the Middle East.

As well as selling in large quantities, this born-to-race Porsche has also been heavily garlanded since its market launch in September 2003. The most well known awards include the Goldene Lenkrad (“Golden Steering Wheel”, Bild am Sonntag, 2005), the Auto Trophy (Auto Zeitung, 2004 and 2005), and Best Auto (Auto Motor und Sport, 2004). It has also received top international accolades from Auto Car (UK, 2004), Top Gear (UK, 2004) and Road & Track (USA, 2004). Up to December 2005, the Carrera GT had been the subject of some 3,500 articles adorning the front pages of German and respected international specialist magazines over 100 times.
