2005 Porsche Carrera GT 2dr Convertible (5.7L 10cyl 6M)


Review

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!


Favorite Features

The acceleration and looks.


Suggested Improvements

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Performance!


Suggested Improvements

Make it go 0 to 60 in less than three seconds.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

The exterior looks as well as the unbelievable acceleration.


Suggested Improvements

Can't think of any improvement!

Review

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 itís 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.


Favorite Features

The seat positioning and visability for class.


Suggested Improvements

Move the hand brake position - might just be me, but it seems too far back.

Review

the car is very fun to drive, immaculate for any tastes you may have. the only thing I find that may be a problem is price/insurance. But if you can afford it, I highly recomend it.


Favorite Features

The handling is excellent as well as the design of the car.


Suggested Improvements

Price. Bottomline, this is the only thing that needs to be improved, but you must pay for excellence.

Review

This is the best Porsche ever! It leaves me totally speachless. I could go on forever about the handling and all the other sweet things!


Favorite Features

I really don't have a favorite feature. They are all to good to be true!


Suggested Improvements

Make them like the Gemballa Mirage Carrera GT was. It's the car that is featured on the front of the duPont Registry magazine. If they all looked like that they would be the hottest car ever!

Review

Thank you Bill Gates for making me rich. I just got htis car, got it up to 200 on one of my favorite stretches or road and felt safe. This car is so fast, responsive, and sweet that I recommend anyone with cash to burn to make it a priority. Go for it.

Power, feel, responsiveness


Suggested Improvements

Add orange to the color pallete.

Review

The carrera gt is by far the best car I have ever had in my possesion. It's fast, best handling in all-around conditions amd out does any other car in the world. The f50 the vviper ,05 corrvette full stock none of these cars even share the same road.


Favorite Features

Great all-around handling, never ending speed limit, and looks.


Suggested Improvements

1 slight change in the 05 carrera gt's make and model would completely destroy its existance. Absolutely no improvements can take place to this one of a kind vehicle.
