Wheels are 20-inch, spring suspension located horizontally coaxially with adjustable dampers.

The estimated maximum speed of the PORSCHE CARRERA GT 330 km/h To 100 km/h Roadster accelerates in less than 4 seconds, and to 200 km/h for 10 seconds.
It is interesting to note that at speeds over 120 km/h in the Central part of the rear spoiler automatically rises up, working like a wing to improve contact of the drive wheels with the road.
The car’s interior is designed in the style of “techno”. To adjust the seat enough to pull mounted in the seat cushion aluminum arm — the electrical systems will do this silently and smoothly. The machine is equipped with front and side airbags.
