As a new era of ultra high-tech supercars arrive in the shape of the McLaren P1, Ferrari F70, and even the hybrid Porsche 918 that will be this car's spiritual successor, we take the opportunity to revisit the iconic Porsche Carrera GT.

What's the point in covering this yet again?

Why not?

If you didn't want to see it 'yet again', why watch it again? Auto Car aren't forcing anything onto you...

Carrera GT now on my Euromillions-win test-drive list. 

What a pleasure to watch a motoring hack present a vid in a style that's not portentous or smug, but is refreshingly spontaneous, heartfelt and enthusiastic, yet also articulate and informative. Bravo!

(But please pronounce Porsche correctly - I bet you don't anglicize Renault, Alfa Romeo, Bach, Haydn, Peugeot, Citroën et al?)

Good post - the enthusiam of VP was clearly genuine...but I can't help thinking that, 3 years from now, with the P1, F70 and 918 representing the Ubercar benchmark, that this very capable (but uglier than a Caterham) car will be quietly trundling towards the dustbin of history - more GT40 than 250 GTO...

Why are you asking this question again?, if you've got one ounce of Petrol in your veins you'd know why, if my numbers came up tonight....?

The feature is called Hero Cars, hence why they're dong a video feature. Pretty obvious really.

Not sure what DJForbes means by dustbin of history. The current value of the Carerra GT certainly doesn't back that up. They're seriously highly sought after, because it's such a great car, hence as Vicky states the value now is the same as when new. A definite future investment prospect, in the same mould as the F40.

What was the point of your comment? Maybe you'd be better off at mumsnet wherer there's not an awful lot of car talk, apart from, maybe, MPV write-ups.

What an awful colour for such a wonderful car

Great to look at. And a nice car too. ;-)

Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the new Vicki Butler-Henderson!  What a pleasure to watch, in every way! Loved those interior shots!  How nice is it to have an attractive girl who knows how to drive and who knows her stuff doing nothing more than showing genuine enthusiasm for cars?

Still my favourite car. That noise!!!! I worked at Porsche for a while and was in the workshop at Reading while 2 GTs that were being serviced there were being put away for the night inside. The sound of the engines blipping, reverberating around the workshop was incredible.

 

28bhp never felt so fast

    More of an expensive oddity than a range-topping performance SUV, and an ultimately unsatisfying oddity at that

    Decent styling, a well-judged interior and good practicality means Fiat's 500X is a worthy entrant on your compact crossover shortlist

    The new i20 is a very spacious, well-kitted and keenly priced addition to this competitive segment, but it’s let down by weak engines

    This sporty 911 Carrera plugs the gap between the standard Carrera S and the hardcore GT3 successfully
