There were almost 50, 000 km on the speedometer of this Carrera, when the company Porsche Austria provided it to the police, and the police operated it from May till October 2006. During this period many racers were taught to be afraid. However there was one drawback. This expensive police car (95,000 Euros), employed as a patrol vehicle, in the absence of room could not block off traffic in those areas, where it was necessary to fix pillars. Moreover, such Sport Coupe was too expensive for the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
That is why this unique police PORSCHE was acquired by the family of Pfeifhofer and found its rightful place in the automobile museum Pfeifhofer in Gmünd.
