Feature 2 November 2012

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.

Vicky, I've been a bit critical of your presenting style in the past, this video though was great. You appear far more relaxed than you once were and more comfortable with the medium and your enthusiasm is infectious not annoying. Please don't turn into VBH.

Good review Vicky. Oh to win the lottery! Now this IS a sports car, and a beautiful one at that, unlike that big "Company Director's motorway rep-mobile".... known as the M6, which Vicky, you ridiculously described as a "sports car". Heresy!

best yet

The best supercar yet made in my view, makes the Bugatti seem incredibly boring even though it is incredibly fast.

Expect prices to almost double in the next 3 years.

 

WTF

Just typed an essay but the website crashed. Another reason why I'm rapidly losing patience with Autocar.

 

its Porsh-er!!! Not Porsh! Arghhhh do your homework!

 

Also, M6 video was below par. Journalist didn't seem to know what or who the car is aimed at and she totally missed the point.

 

As I said some amateur mistakes creeping in recently.

Best review yet.

Nice to see someone enjoy a car that much.

It probably feels like it fits in the 21st century, because it was actually build in the 21st century.

VP answers your question in her very opening sentence: revisiting hero cars.  The CGT is a hero car for most petrolheads, yours truly included.

@mattyhall - your comment 'its Porsh-er!!! Not Porsh! Arghhhh do your homework' is frankly bollocks. I bet you pronounce Volkswagen 'wagon' rather 'vaagen'. But when it's Porsche you get all precious and demand people say the 'er' on the end. Different countries pronounce words differently sometimes. It's not compulsory to all say it the same.

This is one awesome Porsche.

This is one awesome Porsche. Smile I talked to salesman a while back and he said a customer had burned up the clutch in the Carrera GT and the replacement clutch costed him over 30 grand. Smile

    New GTE offers the best blend of economy and performance in the Golf range, but could do with more boot space and a lower price

    The X6 is a showroom hit. Does its smaller brother deserve to be?

    Go-faster Boxster renders the Boxster S entirely redundant, but not the slower but still sweet basic model

    More visceral than the M4 coupé thanks to more audible exhaust and well-controlled swirl of air in the cabin, but dynamics suffer slightly
