Autocar has cobbled together what we know about the GT1 so far to create this rendering of what the Bugatti Veyron-beater might look like when it surfaces sometime in 2009. The info we already know hasn't changed much. The car will be a 950-bhp, street-legal version of Porsche's future Le Mans racer and use the Carrera GT's carbon fiber frame with a new nose and tail. The GT1's top speed will be 254 mph, 2 mph more than the Veyron.

Autocar's drawing is said to be inspired from leaked technical drawings, so this is more than an artist's best guess. The magazine also claims that Porsche has already begun testing 950-bhp engines, despite not knowing whether the GT1's powerplant will be a turbocharged version of the Carrera GT's V10 or a bored-out, twin-turbo version of the Cayenne S's V8. Regardless of which engine is chosen, the GT1 holds the promise of stealing the top podium spot away from the Bugatti Veyron.

      I didn't think it would be long before someone would come along and beat the Bugatti Veyron!
      • 9 Years Ago
      I rode in a Carrera GT before and it was scary fast. I can't even imagine what this thing would be like!!!
      • 9 Years Ago
      The big question is whether or not it will be dubbed with a sequential tranny... I for one hope it is...

      15yroldcarnut, porsche is independantly owned, porsche owns 20% of volkswagon and volkswagon owns bugatti.

      I like it except for the big rear wing. While necessary for such high speeds, Bugatti does it with somthing that hides away. May be Porsche will do something similar, a la Carrera.
      • 9 Years Ago
      hopefully it will be cheepr than a buggati veyron.

      also isnt buggati owned by volkswagen and porshe owned by volkswagen? so why would they compete and arent buggatis like going to sell out way before the porshe comes out so there wont be any competition it will just be a new set of buyers?

      instead of one turbo on the v10 or two on the v8 they should put two in the v10. then it will beat the veyron by more than 2 mph

      15yroldcarnut: Porsche is not owned by Volkswagon. However, the Porsche family has been involved with Volkswagon ever since Dr. Ferdinand Porsche first designed the VW bug. They also have a history of sharing development costs ala the VW Tureg and Porsche Cayenne.

      Ok, so the fastest car in the world isnt gonna be this Porsche GT1 or the Bugatti, it is the Barbarus TKR. It goes estimated 270mph. That's way faster than both of those cars.
