For the Concept model, see Porsche Carrera GT (Concept).

The Porsche Carrera GT is a mid-engined supercar built by Porsche. It is powered by a modified V10 originally intended for a Le Mans prototype as Porsche had wanted to make a Le Mans racing car.

Games

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

The Carrera GT appears in Need for Speed: Most Wanted with a price tag of $280,000. It is unlocked upon the player defeating Blacklist Racer #3 - Ronald "Ronnie" McCrea.

The Carrera GT understeers less and performs better in races compared to the SLR McLaren . It can easily surpass the performance of the BMW M3 GTR GT upon being equipped with Junkman parts.

Need for Speed: Carbon

The Carrera GT appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a tier 3 exotic class car.

Its acceleration isn't strong but it does make up for it with a high top speed along with brilliant handling.

The stock Carrera GT is unlocked for purchase in the Career mode depending on the player's chosen career path:

Once unlocked, it can be purchased from any Car Lot for 240,000 cash.

Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City

The Carrera GT appears in Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City and is unlocked after Clutch is defeated in the PlayStation Portable release.

It is unlocked in the Gameboy Advance release after MK is defeated as it replaces the Carrera S featured in the PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS releases.

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The Carrera GT appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 3 vehicle. It was included as an add-on car as part of the downloadable Booster pack made available on December 19th, 2007.

It's down on power compared to other supercars but its focus on handling makes it best utilised in Grip and Speed events.

Need for Speed: Undercover

The Carrera GT is featured in Need for Speed: Undercover as a tier 1 vehicle with a price tag of $300,000. It becomes available for purchase from the car lot upon the player reaching Wheelman Level 13.5.

It has better stock acceleration statistics than in previous titles and can still reach a high top speed (241 mph/388 km/h). However, when compared to the rest of tier 1, the Carrera GT lacks in both aspects.

It appears in the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii releases with a price tag of $150,000.

Need for Speed: Shift

The Carrera GT is featured in Need for Speed: Shift as a tier 4 vehicle. It has a performance rating of 15.00 and a price tag of $700,000.

It's a great vehicle within its range although both the Pagani Zonda F and McLaren F1 have better performance ratings.

Need for Speed: Nitro

The Carrera GT appears in the Nintendo DS release of Need for Speed: Nitro.

Need for Speed: World

The Carrera GT was made available in Need for Speed: World on September 27, 2012 as an S class car.

The Carrera GT was first shown in the first trailer for Need for Speed: World, and was later included in a screenshot released on August 2, 2012 as part of a preview for the upcoming Drag game mode. It was added to the game on August 22, 2012 but only appeared as an AI controlled rival in singleplayer races.

The Carrera GT is focused on handling rather than power. It is responsive at any speed and has good traction. Its handling is up to par with any A class Porsche 911 and S class car such as the Pagani Zonda Cinque.

However, its responsiveness comes at the cost of acceleration. The Carrera GT accelerates averagely and slower than cars with a similar overall rating, but is still capable of keeping up with them. Unlike most S class cars, it has a weak nitrous boost. Top speed is 218 mph (351 km/h).

Stock: 758 (S class) Maximum: 845 (S class)

Silver

The Silver style is an Amerikon Speedsystems performance tuned speedboost car that costs SpeedBoost8600. It was made available on September 27, 2012 following the 10th "Spot the Devs" event.
