Although mid-mounted engines had become the norm with supercars by the 1980s, Porsche decided to stick with a rear-engined configuration when it developed the 959. The move obviously had to do with the fact that Stuttgart’s first supercar was based on the 911. It took Porsche until 1996 to build its first road-going mid-engined supercar, the 911 GT1 Strassenversion, but only because it needed it to homologate the race car with the same name. It was only eight years later, in 2004, that the German brand finally launched its first street-legal supercar with the powerplant mounted behind the seats: the Carrera GT.

Built until 2006, the Carrera GT was Porsche’s last supercar until the 918 Spyder was introduced in 2013. Much like its successor, the Carrera GT was one of the very few available products that rivaled Ferrari’s top supercar at the time, the Enzo. Although it wasn’t meant to become the most powerful or fastest road-legal supercar, the Carrera GT lived on as one of Porsche’s finest efforts in the business and one of the best supercars of the 2000s.
