Porsche announces newly developed tyres for the Carrera GT supercar

Porsche Carrera GT production ended on May 6, 2006 with a total production run of 1,270 units. The Carrera GT was named number one in the Top Sports Cars list of the 2000s by Sports Car International. Powered by a 5.7 litre V10 engine producing 612 hp, it does 0-62 mph in 3.9 seconds and has a maximum speed of 205 mph.

Even though Porsche is currently busy with their new supercar, the 918 Spyder, they haven’t forgotten owners of the Carrera GT.

Porsche has developed a new tyre for the Carrera GT in partnership with Michelin to improve handling, lap times and overall driving experience.

The new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyre replaces the current Pilot Sport PS2 tyre on the Carrera GT and is based on “dual-compound” technology. With this technology, different rubber compounds are used for the inside and outside of the tread.

These new tyres are available now in 265/35 ZR 19 98Y “N0” and 335/30 ZR 20 108Y “N0” dimensions.
