The Porsche Carrera GT is a mid-engined supercar built by Porsche. It is powered by a modified V10 originally intended for a Le Mans protoype as Porsche had wanted to make a Le Mans racing car.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

The Carrera GT appears in Need for Speed: Most Wanted with a price tag of $280,000. It is unlocked upon the player defeating Blacklist Racer #3 - Ronald "Ronnie" McCrea.

The Carrera GT understeers less and performs better in races compared to the McLaren SLR. It can easily surpass the performance of the BMW M3 GTR upon being equipped with Junkman parts.

Need for Speed: Carbon

The Carrera GT appears in Need for Speed: Carbon with a price tag of $240,000. It is featured as a Tier 3 Exotic class car that can be unlocked by differing means depending on the player's starting vehicle:

  • Tuner Career - Defeat Darius.
  • Muscle Career - Defeat Darius.
  • Exotic Career - Take over the Canmor Downs Territory in Silverton.

The car's acceleration isn't as strong as comparable cars such as the Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06 but does make up for it with a high top speed.

A custom tuned variant of the Carrera GT is included in the Collector's Edition release. The variant is classed as a Bonus vehicle and can only be driven in Quick Play modes.

Crew member Colin will swap his Porsche Cayman S with a Carrera GT once the player purchases a Tier 3 vehicle.

Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City

The Carrera GT appears in Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City and is unlocked after Clutch is defeated in the PlayStation Portable release. It is unlocked in the Gameboy Advance release after MK is defeated as it replaces the Carrera S featured in the PlayStation Portable & Nintendo DS releases.

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The Carrera GT appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a Tier 3 vehicle. It was included as an add-on car as part of the downloadable Booster Pack made available on December 19th, 2007.

It's down on power compared to other supercars but its focus on handling makes it best utilised in Grip and Speed events. 

Need for Speed: Undercover

The Carrera GT is featured in Need for Speed: Undercover as a Tier 1 vehicle with a price tag of $300,000. It becomes available for purchase from the car lot upon the player reaching Wheelman Level 13.5.

It has better stock acceleration statistics than in previous titles and can still reach a high top speed (241 mph/388 km/h). However, when compared to the rest of Tier 1, the Carrera GT lacks in both aspects.

Shift Series

The Carrera GT is featured in Need for Speed: Shift as a Tier 4 vehicle. It has a performance rating of 15.00 and a price tag of $700,000.

The Carrera GT is featured in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Modern A class car with a performance rating of 1,570. It has a price tag of $362,000.

It's a great vehicle within its range although both the Pagani Zonda F and McLaren F1 have better performance ratings.

Need for Speed: World

The Carrera GT was first made available in Need for Speed: World on September 27th, 2012 as an S class car.

The Carrera GT was first shown in the first trailer of Need for Speed: World, and was later included in a screenshot released on August 2nd, 2012 as part of a preview for the upcoming Drag game mode. It was added to the game on August 22nd, 2012 but only appeared as an AI controlled rival in singleplayer races.

The Carrera GT is focused on handling rather than power. It is responsive at any speed and has good traction. Its handling is up to par with any A Class Porsche 911 and S Class car such as the Pagani Zonda Cinque.

However, its responsiveness comes at the cost of acceleration. The Carrera GT accelerates averagely and slower than cars with a similar overall rating, but is still capable of keeping up with them. Unlike most Class S cars, it has a weak nitrous boost. Top speed is 218 mph (351 km/h).

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)

The Carrera GT is featured in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) as an Exotic class car for Racers and as a Speed Enforcement class vehicle for the SCPD.

It lacks a high top speed compared to other Exotic and Speed Enforcement class cars but has quite direct steering to compensate. The Wii release of the game does not feature the Carrera GT.

It is unlocked for Racers upon the player earning 405,000 Bounty in the Racer career and upon the player earning 587,740 Bounty in the SCPD career.

Need for Speed: The Run

The Carrera GT is featured in Need for Speed: The Run as a Tier 5 vehicle. It is only available in the downloadable Supercar Pack for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 releases.

The Carrera GT has a handling rating of normal and a lot of horse power generated at a lower RPM state than other cars featured in the Supercar Pack.

This makes this Tier 5 vehicle much more suited to technical courses as it is capable of powerful acceleration out of corners. This also makes it an inferior vehicle for high speed highway courses as it won't be able to sustain a high top speed compared to other cars in the Supercar Pack.

Need for Speed: Rivals

The Carrera GT was first revealed to be featured in Need for Speed: Rivals as an RCPD unit on November 8th, 2013. It was shown in a Hot Pursuit gameplay video published by IGN.[1]

It can be made available for the RCPD in either a Patrol, Undercover or Enforcer specification upon the player completing the associated Rank 12 assignment.

Trivia

  • In Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010), the Porsche Carrera GT can be selected in Basalt Black Metallic, Fayence Yellow, GT Silver Metallic, Guards Red or Seal Grey.
