Battle Of The Generations: Porsche Carrera GT Vs. 918 Spyder

What a difference a decade makes.

When the Porsche Carrera GT first appeared in 2004, it was one of the most lusted after supercars and an ultimate performance beast.

Replacing the 612 horsepower V10 with a 608 hp V8 in addition to two electric motors making 279 horsepower, it shaved a full second off the Carrera GT's acceleration time from 0-60 and added endless modern technology features to make it an unbelievable racing animal.
