Product Description

The Porsche Carrera GT grabbed the world's attention when first unveiled as a concept car at the 2000 Paris Auto Show. Promoted as Porsche's next generation flagship super sports car, the Carrera GT was officially unleashed onto the international motoring market in 2003. Incorporating the latest and most extreme racing technology, the Carrera GT lines up against the impressive range of super sports cars offered by the worlds top makers, such as the Enzo Ferrari and the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. Featuring a powerful 5.7 liter V10 engine, carbon-fiber monocoque chassis and push-rod suspension all wrapped up in classic Porsche style and elegance, the Carrera GT is the ultimate high-end sports car.

Gorgeous! Fine craftsmanship, not easy but worth the effort
By cmgventura September 16, 2013
I really love this model, I took my time and am very pleased by the end product. I used the colors recommended by Tamiya and was pleased. There is plenty of engine and interior detail to please and body detail is as good as you are up to doing. The only problem I had was the fit of the t-bar roof, but that's not necessary to use. Also the boot doesn't open as nicely as it should, but I am probably to blame for that. I enjoy Tamiya models for their high standards of design and engineering of parts. I saw one of these cars in person the other day and I was awestruck, well, I'll never own one, but this model almost makes up for that!

Awesome Car...Nicely Detailed Kit...But Not For The Novice
By hotmail2paul August 16, 2016
Building this Carrera GT is a very long and painstaking process. Not because there is a lot of flashing on the parts, there is virtually none. There is at lot of detail paint work and test fitting if you want this to look like a real one. Before you start download some photos from the internet, body, interior and powertrain. While you on the internet download the assembly instructions from Tamiya. It is a PDF file and you will find it useful if you want to enlarge a particular step in the instructions. Study the instructions well before beginning, especially the paint coding and don't divert from their assembly sequence. Painting the body side panel inserts requires that they be painted prior to gluing them to the body. This allows you to polish these panels before assembly into the body. This is a task that you have to be extremely neat with, other wise the glue will ooze between the joints and show. I found it best to tack them in place from the back first with super glue gel and after an overnight drying I used a two part 5 minute epoxy again from the back. The decal film is very thin and some of them are so small such as the logos for the wheel center caps and the calipers you may want to call Tamiya in Torrance, CA (800-826-4922) and buy an extra set. If you call Tamiya buy an extra Carrera GT logo also for the rear facia. It is a metal part with a self adhesive back and does not stick too well. It is worth the few extra buck to have extras, believe me the GT logo will end up missing sooner or later. I was hired by a Porsche Employee that brought me two kits, to build one car and one rolling chassis and it was sure nice to have that extra GT logo and decal sheet. Want to take a look at my build. It it the Sublime Green one in Viewer Images for this product.

Carrera GT
By Wingrdr October 2, 2017
Awesome but challenging model. Finished product looks great...not perfect (my fault) but very nice. I improvised a bit with the colors and like the way it turned out. I have 10 Porsche models (also one in the garage :) mostly Tamiya...this is one of their best.
