Until Porsche finally decides to officially add the 918 Spyder to its lineup, we continue to look back and remember what a great car the Carrera GT was. Unveiled back in 2004, the supercar was limited to only 1,270 units and the guys over at Carlex Design had the chance to update unit No. 1,035.
If you have followed the automotive industry in the past few years, you know that Carlex Design is a tuner known for upgrading the interiors and this is exactly what it has done for the Carrera GT.
For the Carrera GT, Carlex paid close attention to the smallest details when restyling the supercar’s interior. It includes yellow-contrast-stitched black Carbon Optic leather combined with Alcantara. The yellow stitching also helps tie the inside to the outside, as it perfectly matches the yellow brake calipers.
The tuner also offers lots of luxury extras and add-ons, like the Alcantara floor mats in rhombus stitching; rearview mirror in Alcantara; and trunk lining decorated with a nice stitching.

Porsche Carrera GT by Carlex Design in Detail
Carlex Design left the exterior of the Carrera GT alone, focusing only on making the interior look as stunning as possible. The tuner combined black Carbon Optic leather with Alcantara for a sportier appearance. We certainly understand that Carlex wanted to set this Carrera GT apart from the other 1,270 examples built, but this yellow stitching may be a little over the top for some.
The Carrera GT supercar was unveiled in 2004 and remained in production until 2007, netting a total production count of 1,270 units.
The Carrera GT was powered by a 5.7-liter V-10 engine that produced 612 horsepower and 435 pound-feet. The model could sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and went up to a top speed of 205 mph.
