    Guys I don't believe this, but my dad and his friend both swear they saw a carrera GT in Wayne,PA at the villa straford. They both say it was parked and by the time they finished eating it was gone. They saw it through the window. I think they were just seeing things,but can anyone verify this claim. BTW for what its worth my dad knows cars pretty well.

    Ooooh... i'm definitely feeling all warm and fuzzy inside after looking at those pictures... i don't know how you folks see these cars in person; Carrera GTs, Enzos, etc. - Long Island must be the supercar void...

    Thanks Alex it very well could be he did say the car was black. Do you know where this car is located? I guess he could be right now.

    Des - Car definitely has some fine craftsmanship. Seems to be quite well appointed.

    Erik - I've been told these pictures were taken in Michigan, but the car has been travelling around for testing. I'm not certain, but I swear I saw one the other night on 202 speeding towards I95 the other night. I initially dismissed it as a very kitted Boxter, but now that I've seen these pics, I'm not so sure anymore.

    The guy that took these pics says, "The speed of teh car is unreal,
    it moves like a slot car - zip, zip, it's gone. Amazing."

    He has some video clips too so I'll post a link when he gets those up.

    I believe the car is a manufacturers car being sent around for testing. The video was shot by someone on the Lotus list in Michigan. Sorry, but that's about all the info I have on the car at the moment.
