I first saw the Porsche Carrera GT at the September 2010 edition of Houston Cars and Coffee. There were two Carrera GTs next to each other. I like the design of the car with its sleek design. It is one of the few Porsches that is not an eye sore. At the January 2011 edition of Houston Cars and Coffee, there was a huge crowd around it.

Top Gear reviewed the Porsche Carrera GT during Series 4, Episode 4, where it set the power lap time, and was featured again during Series 5, Episode 2, where Jeremy Clarkson was comparing modern supercars to classic supercars. Jay Leno featured his Carrera GT on his website, www.jaylenosgarage.com. It is a staple in the Need For Speed, Forza Motorsport, and Burnout games. It is also playable in Split/Second (Corbretti Slipstream), Drag Racer 1 and 3, Drift City, RayCity, Colin's Crazy Carrera, Project Gotham Racing 2.
Final Thoughts: It is a Porsche like no others. I like its design and I think it is one of the best pure roadsters people can buy. It is a fast car. I just think it is a little expensive for what it is. I just cannot wait for Porsche to release the 918 hybrid Spyder.
