At the Paris Motor Show in 2000, Porsche presented a near-production concept for a super sports car named Carrera GT. Both the carbon-fibre chassis and the ten-cylinder naturally aspirated mid-engine are based on pure racing technology. The Carrera GT is meant to cultivate the character of a racing car for a road car, in order to maximize the driving pleasure. As part of the development team Walter Röhrl is responsible for the fine-tuning and completes endless laps on the Nürburgring to set up the undercarriage perfectly.
