I am a Porsche fanatic, and have owned 11 over the last 15 years. I purchased my 2005 Porsche Carrera GT new, drove it 2,600 miles, and sold it for a $100,000 loss. It is a horrible car in many ways. The clutch is too sensitive, I had electrical problems, and any pot holes in the road were a nightmare. No wonder Porsche has stopped making them. Do not buy this car!

I have owned many Porsches and Ferraris and the Carrera GT is one of the best, if not the best sports car ever made! It is miles above others in: handling, braking and performance. This car will go down in history for what it is. Way over the top and years ahead of everything else. $448,000 is big money, but a super value for what it is.

This is the most fantastic car on the road. I also own a Ferrari 360 Spider and love it, but it doesn't compare in perforamce and style to the Carrera GT. This car really turns heads and noone has any idea what it is, but everyone who sees it knows that it's something special.

The Carrera just oozes brawn out of every pore. I have owned 3 Porsches over two decades and have loved the refinements of their cars but the GT has just gone this bit further. The engine sounds magnificent, the seat positioning is good (I am 5 ft 8), the instruments are well aligned for the driver and visibility is extremely good for its class. Fine detail has been made to the interior which exudes rich quality. I will be looking forward to entering the cup races this year. It is always good meet other owners at these events. It is also good for potential Porsche owners to attended and see them in action.
