    Yes, I know. They look like some of the very first Porsche Carrera GT pics, that's why I asked if anyone had any other pictures or even information.

    same here. If it is a chop, its a very good one.

    the background is of the cliff in the dessert in the Porsche press release and official photos of the car, it is obviously a chop, look at the cartoony-ness, and the fact that the background is identical, and that the wheels are stock, i guess its too hard to find a moving wheel you like? not the exact photo attahced, but ive seen thta photo in the preass packet

    that is a horrible thing to do to a Porsche, shame on them

    I dunno if I like it. I am more of a purist anyway so I am not much of a fan for souping up supercars.

    That is what they should've made it look like. Gemballa is an elite tuner company, and if I had a CGT, I would throw on that kit and maybe a turbo on the V10.

    You can't do this to an expensive, good looking, rare car like the CGT!!! There are only 1500 all together...

    I saw one today (number 400) in yellow Nice car and the best of it: it's the car of the president of our local motorsport club and he said he will take me on a tour with it in summer *damn-why-is-winter-with-5cm-snow-now?*

    There is no rule for modding out supercars. You can mod out any super exotic car and make it even more unique than it already was. What would you rather have, an F50? or an Koenigg F50 Twin Turbo? Which is more rare? The Carrera GT or the Gemballa Carrera GT? 1500 is actually a relatively big production number for a car of that caliber. They only made 399 Enzos. I rather have the most rare, and unique vehicle possible, and the Gemballa Carrera GT is that.

    What if the most rare and unique car ever was a AMC Gremlin that went 10MPH top speed? Would you still want it?

    i am sorry but that is an absolute disgrace...

    yeah it might be "unique" but it is a disgusting design and very ordinary photoshop, especially the whole "cartoon" nature of it...

    i hope it never gets built...
