    Carrera GT

    Does anyone have an opinion about the Carrera GT versus the GT2 as a car to drive and enjoy? Any opinions or information about the Carrera GT?


    Re: Carrera GT

    I think anybody telling you his opinion about the Carrera GT vs. the GT2 as a car to drive and enjoy would have to speculate or to lie to you. The GT2 and Carrera GT are two completely different cars for different customers.
    I'd really love to see the Carrera GT on the track or on the street but I suppose most customers will lock this beauty in their garage and never drive it.
    What information do you need about the Carrera GT ? Please be more specific and maybe I can help. If you want to order one, it is time to make your (50000 USD ?) deposit at a dealer before it is too late.

    Re: Carrera GT

    With the cost of the Carrera GT at 350,000 to 400,000 U.S., and with 1,000 plus to be produced, my questions are:
    How well will the car hold its value?
    Will it really be driveable on the street?
    Would the GT2 be a better choice for fun, street driveability, and retained value?

    Re: Carrera GT

    Don't nail me on this one but I try to speculate a little bit: it is very likely that the Carrera GT holds up it's value better than the GT2. In Germany, some dealers already sell GT2 below MSRP and they are even available at some places for immediate delivery as far as I know.
    Driveable on the street ? Well, I'm sure that Porsche won't sell you a car which isn't. But do you really want to drive a 400000 USD car on the street and beeing accidentally hit by an old Buick worth 500 bucks ?
    I'm sure that the GT2 will be a better daily driver compared to the GT but I can't say more about the Carrera GT's driveability because I never drove one and despite Walter Roehrl, some Weissach engineers and some Porsche CEOs, I guess nobody else did.
    One little advise: if you have the money, listen to your heart. I never buy cars and think about the value in 5 years because usually it doesn't come even close to my expectations. Enjoy whatever Porsche you want to buy and when it comes to selling it, you'll have a pleasant surprise or maybe not. Hope this helps.
