Carrera GT debacle

How should Porsche deal with this car that keeps killing it's driver when you step away from the gas?
It's kind of shitty for these companies that build these cars with very expensive bleeding edge components and manufacturing and then lose money because nobody buys them because it is 15 years too early for Boomers to use them as a money making strategy. Imagine being Porsche giving a MSRP of 448k to the Carrera GT and then 20 years later the same car comes for some servicing but now the car is worth 1.8 million dollars. Just giving some context for you to take into consideration before coming up with a solution to the Carrera GT problem.

            This is what I'm talking about. Bus riders utterly mystified by a high hp car losing grip in its drive wheels. Like handling fundamentals are a mystery to them they misread as something else.

            It happens in LITERALLY every performance car you can think of

            so the problem with the Carrera GT is downforce? Could Porsche fix the car going haywire with more downforce? Did you just solved the Carrera Gt problem?

            It's transmission and downforce. You can't fix it without a bunch of ugly wings and to drive it faster than it can normally go in turns. It's not designed to race.

            You need to go so very fast for a behemoth like that to get downforce, and it would never get there before it falls off the road.

            your steering false equivalency implies that this shit handling is the driver's fault. if its "just losing grip" then its clearly the car's problem. not all powerful cars make you feel "scared" to be in them. just the highly unstable shitboxes, do.

            The car just loses grip when you step off the gas like the og Porsche 911 Turbo but this time Porsche was asked to built the car this way. The problem is people are selling Carrera GT's to people who don't know any better. Look at these seasoned Nurburgring amateur driver scared shitless after being in a Carrera GT with new tires from two weeks ago. He says he doesn't want to do it again as in he doesn't want to be in a Carrera GT ever again.

            mustangs do this too. and people say its because they don't handle well. if your car is so unstable that it scares you its probably not a very good handling vehicle.

            but again, this is somehow laudable because the car is expensive and european and has a spoopy lore around it.

            I always thought it was a bit funny when motoring journalists had to drive behind a pace car on a wide track when they got to “test drive” it in 2003 and they weren’t allowed to floor it. But Porsche knew what they had built.

            And it begs the question: Why not test drive and buy the pace car then instead if Porsche already knew that’s what a random petrolhead actually could handle on a track?

        You aren't boomer multi-millionaires. Porsche never intended you shills to own them and yet here you are still simping for them. They'd kick your smelly poorgay ass out of the dealership the moment they caught sight of one of your kind in their showroom. Make no mistake, you aren't their target clientele. They'd sooner torch a Porsche than have to experience embarrassment from the public seeing one of you subhumans in their car degrading their precious brand image.

    That's a feature, not a bug. Vehicles with knife edge handling require the utmost respect or the ride will teach you what respect means. Any amount of focus taken away from the driving experience itself, will kill you and that's in itself is what a true track weapon was before the days of electronic driving safeties. Not everyone could handle the level of responsibility and maturity it requires to pilot a freakin race car on the street and to be fair, I think computerized driving aids to reduce the skill ceiling allowing normies to drive a race car on public roads is wrong. It's becoming too easy for normies to buy 2+ ton cars that can 0-60 in 2-3 seconds, it's absurd.
