    Could you define "official?" Porsche's official site is: http://www.porsche.com . Nothing there about the beautiful, highly impractical Carrera GT which was constructed for the public for only a few years (1920 built, if I recall correctly). The car's all graphite-epoxy composite chassis and bodywork make it next-to-impossible to repair and next-to-impossible to insure. Most of the ones not destroyed are in the hands of collectors, where they've become garage queens.

    I've seen two in person: one at an auto show, and one actually being driven on the Miller Motorsports Park race course. I slowed on the main straight to watch that car pass me (again), just because I wanted to see it! The guy actually spun it out into the dirt on a corner shortly thereafter.

    The car's performance figures have been met and even exceeded by newer Porsches, and at a fraction of the cost. It was a proof of concept vehicle: the next step beyond a "concept" car. As such, many features from it are now being incorporated into 911s and other Porsche vehicles including the Panamera. But their bodies are steel and aluminum - for now.

    ADDED:

    Correction - apparently only 1270 Carrera GTs were actually built and sold to the public; more were planned, but not produced (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_Carrera_GT ).

    Source(s): I'm a long time Porsche owner, a Porschephile, a track guy, and a mechanical engineer. The icon is me and my 2005 Porsche 911 Turbo S ... just racing in the rain.
