HONOLULU, Hawaii — It’s the beginning of a new era for the legendary Porsche Carrera GT, as the legendary car’s most famous owner, Mercedes-AMG, unveiled its latest incarnation at a Mercedes- AMG auction in Hawaii on Saturday.
It’s a Porsche, in fact.
But what’s it called?
Is it a car or an SUV?
And how much will it cost?
That’s a question that will surely linger in the minds of buyers, who will have to decide whether to shell out $400,000 or $1 million for a supercar that’s still going strong, albeit in a much different form.
The Porsche Carabao has seen better days.
After nearly a decade of service, the model’s original owner, Porsche founder Herbert Diess, died in 2016.
Porsche had sold the car to a group of Japanese buyers.
The Carabaos were then transferred to a Japanese-owned dealership that was then sold to a company called Kogyo.
When the sale was announced, the buyer’s name was revealed as a Japanese carmaker.
It was the Kogyo Group, owned by the same family that had bought the Porsche brand back in 1973.
The new version is called the GT3.
It features a new front fascia, more powerful brakes, more interior space and a more aggressive design.
The GT3 has also gotten a lot of upgrades since it was last sold.
It now has a more powerful engine and more powerful wheels.
And it’s got a lot more body work to go along with it.
It’s a lot bigger.
The first thing you notice when you step into the GT 3 is that it’s much, much bigger than the original.
It weighs in at a whopping 6,500 pounds, up from 4,400 pounds in the original model.
Its new rear-engine, 2.0-liter flat-six engine produces 320 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, while the original had a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
The new engine has been beefed up to 310 horsepower and 330 lb-feet of torque.
And Porsche says it has a new fuel economy rating of 21.1 mpg city/highway and 21.6 mpg combined.
The engine and suspension are also completely different, according to the automaker.
The car has a direct-injection system, and there’s a new “dynamic clutch” which makes the front end lean more heavily.
The rear end also gets stiffer springs and is lighter, thanks to a new design for the steering column.
Porsche says the new GT3 is lighter than the previous model.
It has a lighter roof, a larger trunk and an updated interior.
It also has a smaller trunk volume than the outgoing model, but that’s a result of the new design, not the engine.
Porsche says the GT has an overall weight of 5,000 pounds more than the GT2, but the weight savings are not as great as the weight increases.
The GT3’s interior is also new.
The bodywork is now aluminum and the front fenders have been changed to an aluminum-alloy front splitter.
The interior now has the standard-spec features like a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a center stack.
The exterior also gets a facelift with a more aerodynamic look and new grille.
The carbon fiber roof is also redesigned.
It can be seen in the video above.
The front wheels on the new car feature aluminum rims, but it’s not the most aerodynamic option for the car.
Porsche has been trying to get the GT to look like a sports car.
It doesn’t look like it, so why is that the most desirable feature for a car that is essentially a super car?
That is, a car like the Porsche Panamera Turbo or a Porsche Cayenne.
The original GT3 was sold in 2017, but its owner, Herbert Diiss, died.
He left behind a huge estate that was worth about $6.7 billion at the time of his death.
Porsche also sold the GT brand in 2012, which means it’s now owned by a new group of investors.
So the brand is not going anywhere, even if its new incarnation is not quite as well-known as its previous one.
The sale was sold out for about three hours, but Porsche says there are a few thousand people who were interested in buying the car, so there’s still plenty of room for interest.
The auction will go on for another hour or so, but you can expect to see lots of people in attendance.
