Autocar drives the Porsche Carrera GT

It's been eight years since the Porsche Carrera GT debuted. It feels like an eternity. Manufacturers relish nothing more than exceeding the performance envelope of their old halo models, and with a rash of idiotically fast machines like the McLaren P1, Ferrari F70 and Porsche 918 Spyder soon headed to market, the crew from Autocar took the time to revisit the last real German supercar on a track. So, how has the Carrera GT aged?

According to Autocar, it's still worth every ludicrous cent of its asking price. Sure, there are modern examples from the 911 stable that cost less and serve up 90 percent of the performance, but the Carrera GT continues to deliver foolish thrust and precise handling nearly a decade after it was created.
