Porsche calls it quits for Carrera GT

Porsche announced that it has ended the three-year production run of the Carrera GT by delivering the final unit to a customer in the United Arab Emirates. The last Carrera GT is the 1,111th off the line, which puts the final production run a few hundred or so short of Porsche’s original target of 1,500 copies. Inside Line reports that more than half of all the cars sold ended up in North America, however.

Though only in production for three years, Porsche is calling its Carrera GT the “most successful high-performance sports car of all time.” We’re not sure on what criteria this claim is based, but we’re fairly certain despite never having received one to review (what’s up with that, Porsche?) that the Carrera GT more than held its own in an elite class of autos.
