Need for Speed: Most Wanted
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.
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 and 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.
It appears in the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii releases with a price tag of $150,000.
Need for Speed: Shift
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.
Need for Speed: Nitro
The Carrera GT appears in the Nintendo DS release of Need for Speed: Nitro.
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 for 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).
|The Silver style is an Amerikon Speedsystems performance tuned speedboost car that costs 8600. It was made available on September 27th, 2012 following the 10th "Spot the Devs" event.
|The Red style is a rotationally available stock cash car that costs 1,725,000.
It was initially released on December 19, 2014 as part of a special weekend only rotation.
On May 28th, 2015, its price was lowered from 2,500,000 as part of the End of the World event.
|The Ultra style is a art director car that costs 13800. It was released on January 9th, 2013.
Its paint job reflects Porsche's prior success in the 24 Hours of Le Mans - the race number "16" refers to the number of victories.
Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)
The racer vehicle is unlocked upon the player earning a total of 405,000 racer bounty. The SCPD unit is unlocked upon the player earning a total of 595,000 cop bounty.
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.
|Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) - Statistics|
|Earn 405,000 racer bounty||Exotic Series||201 mph (323 km/h)||$510,000||RWD|
|Earn 595,000 cop bounty||Speed Enforcement||612 bhp @ 8,000 rpm||3.8 seconds||2006|
Shift 2: Unleashed
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.
Need for Speed: The Run
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
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.
- The Porsche Carrera GT in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) can be selected with either a Basalt Black Metallic, Fayence Yellow, GT Silver Metallic, Guards Red or Seal Grey body paint colour.
