The GTA: SA rendition of the Comet

The Comet is a sports car first featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and also featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV. It is based on the Porsche 911. The Comet is all-wheel-drive like many of the newer models, yet looks most like a 911 Cabriolet from 1976 or the early '80s. The front resembles a 1968 Mazda Cosmo more than a 911, though (which might explain the name).

Acceleration, speed, braking, and handling are all among the best in the game. In games prior to GTA IV, the Comet has the added advantage of being similar to a top-down convertible, which enables the player to jump into the driver's seat from the left side of the vehicle without opening the door, facilitating a more rapid take-off.

In Vice City, the easiest place to find a Comet is in front of the Leaf Links Country Club.

The Comet also appears in GTA IV in a hardtop coupe form, instead of its usual targa-top configuration. It retains its Porsche-like silhouette, although its design now appears to have been influenced in part by a BMW Z Coupe. In this game, it bears the logo of its manufacturer, Pfister. The new Comet is very rare and very hard to find.
