Feature Flick: How Not To Load a Porsche Carrera GT
In the market for a Porsche Carrera GT? Then make sure to perform due diligence to the undercarriage inspection before writing the check, especially if the car is a silver or gray metallic color. We're uncertain if the Carrera GT in this video is on the market or not, but we're sure you'll appreciate our words of caution after watching:
The rare and exotic Carrera GT was sold on our shores from 2004 to 2006 and was a showcase of ground-breaking technology, including a Le Mans-worthy V-10 engine, a ceramic composite clutch, and ceramic brakes. The carbon-fiber reinforced body is light, yet strong, but we're pretty sure it wasn't designed to handle the trauma of falling off a tow truck.
A quick search on a few online classifieds reveals that this 5 to 7-year-old supercar still commands close to $400,000, which is pretty close to its original $440,000 MSRP. That being said, we assume the owner of the Carrera GT in this video had no knowledge of how it was being handled. Otherwise, we would strongly question his or her sanity by choosing an uncovered flatbed truck for transport, let alone allowing the use of unsecured wooden scraps as a loading ramp.
