    It wasn't meant to last long either.

    Yeah, a car like this isn't built and immediately followed up by a new model. This isn't the L-series followed by the Aura.

    Re: Porsche Carrera GT Discontinued

    i really dont find this shocking, i didnt really expect it to last long. not cuse of the price, but just because its such a special car. i have seen like 1 or 2 kinda close to my house. not a bad looking car, but i have 1 complaint about it:from the side, it kinda looks like a truck because the cokpit ends so suddenly

    yeah, but if you've played NFS:MW long enough to unlock teh carrera GT, there's a bodykit with (imo) a corvette-styled front bumper, bigger side intakes and an extended roofline (a la fiero). looks SO hot.

    WHY?

    It was a limited run car. It was always intended to have a short shelf life. They weren't building for volume. They intended it to be a collector's car.

    Used ones are already going for $440K, and prices continue to rise.

    I knew it would have a short lifespan, like the Ford GT, Ferrari Enzo, Ferrari F50, etc. Halo cars usually are short lived.

    Somebody has been post-whoring lately :P?
    Sorry China, we'll buy your disposable electronics and lead coated toys, but when we Americans want a cheap car with horrible quality, we get a Chrysler.
