The Comet is based on the [[wp:Porsche 911|Porsche 911]] and best resembles the 911SC Targa from the late '70's or the early 1980s; however, like newer 911 models, it has an all-wheel-drive configuration. The car features a [[wp:targa top|targa top]] similar to the Targa 911s; however, the [[wp:fastback|fastback]] profile the Comet sported in GTA Vice City was dropped in favor of a backwards-slanted standalone C-pillar until GTA IV. GTA III era renditions of the Comet are front-engined, unlike the real Porsche 911, which is famously rear-engined; this led to speculation that the Comet was inspired by a [[wp:Nissan S30|Datsun 240Z]]. The headlamps may also have been inspired by the [[wp:Alfa Romeo Spider|1966-1969 Alfa Romeo Spider]].

===GTA IV — GTA Chinatown Wars===

===HD Universe===
GTA IV's Comet, manufactured by [[Pfister]], is available only in hardtop coupe form. It now largely resembles a [[File:Comet_badges.png|thumb|Badging on the Comet.]][[wp:Porsche 996|Porsche 996 Carrera 4S]]. The Comet features large, cross-drilled disc brakes all around. Inside are two sport seats in black leather resembling Lamborghini's seat design. Similar to the Grotti [[Turismo]], the Comet also features a front-mounted, carpeted boot with space for luggage. Unlike its predecessors, GTA IV's Comet is very rarely encountered on the streets, and is more common in [[Multiplayer in GTA IV|Party Mode]] where two parked Comets can be seen and driven. Like the real 911, the GTA IV Comet is rear-engined. In No.1, Niko Bellic races other opponents with a yellow Comet and has the ability to keep it.

Like the real 911, the GTA IV Comet is rear-engined, however, it has a V8 engine rather than a flat-6 of most Porsches, indicating that it was partly based off the Ruf RGT-8, a specially-tuned version of the Porsche 911. In No.1, Niko Bellic races other opponents with a yellow Comet and has the ability to keep it.
   
 
For GTA Chinatown Wars, two variants of the Comet are available, a regular Comet being similar to GTA IV's Comet, as well as a highly modified racing variant owned by the [[Jaoming Family]], featuring a purple-and-red paintjob, a bodykit, and a white neon underglow that turns on at night.

In GTA V, the Comet is similar to the GTA IV model, but has been updated featuring rear quarter ducts as well as a standard rear deck spoiler. It now resembles a [[wp:Porsche 911 GT2|Porsche 996 GT2]] with minor influences from [[wp:Porsche 911 GT3|Porsche 996 GT3]].

The Comet's acceleration, speed, braking, and handling are all among the best in the game. In [[GTA Vice City]] and [[GTA Vice City Stories]], many of the Comet's properties are similar to those of the [[Stinger]], although traction is inferior. Both vehicles have open tops, and the speed and acceleration are around the same. In the GTA III era, the Comet's top-down convertible nature allows the protagonist to jump over the driver's-side door, facilitating a more rapid take-off.
+
With its AWD powertrain, grippy tires, and poweful engine, the Comet in [[GTA Vice City]] and [[GTA Vice City Stories]] is one of the fastest and best handling sports cars in the game.  The Comet's handling limits and grip levels are extremely high.  The car remains completely stable even when cornerning at full speed without any power oversteer or loss of traction.  In fact, it is virtually impossible to drift with the Comet even in slippery conditions (such as on rainy roads or grass).  The Comet's turn-in is very sharp, though there is a bit of understeer present.  With its unflappable handling and near elite-level speed and acceleration, the Comet is an excellent car to go [http://gta.wikia.com/Vice_Street_Racer racing] with.

+
The Comet's performance is strongly based on the [[wp:Porsche 911 Turbo|Porsche 911 Turbo]].
   
The [[GTA IV ]]rendition of the Comet is the fastest car in the game, with a top speed of 217 mph (347 kph). Four wheel drive ensures good standing-start acceleration, and high power ensures a top speed similar to that of exotic sports cars in the game. However, this car does subtly demonstrate a lack of torque; this is noticeable on hills when at low revs. This problem is minor, because Liberty City is mostly flat and street-constructed. Tirespin and burnouts are very common with the Comet, because traction control is completely turned off.

The [[Grand Theft Auto IV|GTA IV]] rendition of the Comet is the fastest car in the game, with a top speed of 217&nbsp;mph (347&nbsp;km/h). All wheel drive ensures good standing-start acceleration, and high power ensures a top speed similar to that of exotic sports cars in the game. However, this car does subtly demonstrate a lack of torque; this is noticeable on hills when at low revs. This problem is minor, because Liberty City is mostly flat and street-constructed. Tirespin and burnouts are very common with the Comet, because traction control is completely turned off.
   
 
High-speed cornering results in massive understeer in the Comet, but the car does have potential lift-off oversteer, or oversteer at lower speeds. The Comet also suffers from a weak suspension construction. The wheels are prone to buckle into the chassis after striking a curb laterally with less force than expected, making the Comet one of the more fragile sports cars.

The Comet is not necessarily superior in [[Multiplayer in GTA IV|multiplayer]] racing; the Comet is lightweight and relatively unstable, leading to the car being rammed off-road by the other vehicles, or being launched into the air off of hills and losing control, unless you are a good driver.

The conventional Comet in [[GTA Chinatown Wars ]]retains its sporty performance, but is now ranked below higher end sports cars in the same, although its handling and braking are considerably good. The modified variant of the Comet is superior in speed, but is otherwise similar in performance to a standard Comet.

  +
The Comet in [[GTA V]] is fairly similar to the Comet in GTA IV. The top speed and acceleration have been changed, however, and the most notable difference is that the GTA V version is rear-wheel drive, as opposed to a relatively uncommon all-wheel drive drivetrain in GTA IV. In GTA V, the car has fairly average performance for a sports car, but the traction is better than most of the sports cars. However, the car is very light and backheavy, so many players may find the overall handling undesirable, compared to similar cars that have better handling, such as the [[Feltzer]] and [[Elegy RH8]].

"You always wanted one of these when in high school - and now you can have the car that tells everyone yes, these are implants - on your head and in that dizzy tart next to you. Boom. You go, tiger."
Legendarymotorsport.net description.

The Pfister Comet is a sports car that appears in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and Grand Theft Auto V.

DesignEdit

3D UniverseEdit

The Comet is based on the Porsche 911 and best resembles the 911SC Targa from the late '70's or the early 1980s; however, like newer 911 models, it has an all-wheel-drive configuration. The car features a targa top similar to the Targa 911s; however, the fastback profile the Comet sported in GTA Vice City was dropped in favor of a backwards-slanted standalone C-pillar until GTA IV. GTA III era renditions of the Comet are front-engined, unlike the real Porsche 911, which is famously rear-engined; this led to speculation that the Comet was inspired by a Datsun 240Z. The headlamps may also have been inspired by the 1966-1969 Alfa Romeo Spider.

GTA IV's Comet, manufactured by Pfister, is available only in hardtop coupe form. It now largely resembles a Porsche 996 Carrera 4S. The Comet features large, cross-drilled disc brakes all around. Inside are two sport seats in black leather resembling Lamborghini's seat design. Similar to the Grotti Turismo, the Comet also features a front-mounted, carpeted boot with space for luggage. Unlike its predecessors, GTA IV's Comet is very rarely encountered on the streets, and is more common in Party Mode where two parked Comets can be seen and driven. Like the real 911, the GTA IV Comet is rear-engined, however, it has a V8 engine rather than a flat-6 of most Porsches, indicating that it was partly based off the Ruf RGT-8, a specially-tuned version of the Porsche 911. In No.1, Niko Bellic races other opponents with a yellow Comet and has the ability to keep it.

For GTA Chinatown Wars, two variants of the Comet are available, a regular Comet being similar to GTA IV's Comet, as well as a highly modified racing variant owned by the Jaoming Family, featuring a purple-and-red paintjob, a bodykit, and a white neon underglow that turns on at night.

In GTA V, the Comet is similar to the GTA IV model, but has been updated featuring rear quarter ducts as well as a standard rear deck spoiler. It now resembles a Porsche 996 GT2 with minor influences from Porsche 996 GT3.

PerformanceEdit

3D UniverseEdit

With its AWD powertrain, grippy tires, and poweful engine, the Comet in GTA Vice City and GTA Vice City Stories is one of the fastest and best handling sports cars in the game.  The Comet's handling limits and grip levels are extremely high.  The car remains completely stable even when cornerning at full speed without any power oversteer or loss of traction.  In fact, it is virtually impossible to drift with the Comet even in slippery conditions (such as on rainy roads or grass).  The Comet's turn-in is very sharp, though there is a bit of understeer present.  With its unflappable handling and near elite-level speed and acceleration, the Comet is an excellent car to go racing with.

In the GTA III era, the Comet's top-down convertible nature allows the protagonist to jump over the driver's-side door, facilitating a more rapid takeoff.

HD UniverseEdit

The Comet's performance is strongly based on the Porsche 911 Turbo.

The GTA IV rendition of the Comet is the fastest car in the game, with a top speed of 217 mph (347 km/h). All wheel drive ensures good standing-start acceleration, and high power ensures a top speed similar to that of exotic sports cars in the game. However, this car does subtly demonstrate a lack of torque; this is noticeable on hills when at low revs. This problem is minor, because Liberty City is mostly flat and street-constructed. Tirespin and burnouts are very common with the Comet, because traction control is completely turned off.

High-speed cornering results in massive understeer in the Comet, but the car does have potential lift-off oversteer, or oversteer at lower speeds. The Comet also suffers from a weak suspension construction. The wheels are prone to buckle into the chassis after striking a curb laterally with less force than expected, making the Comet one of the more fragile sports cars.

The Comet is not necessarily superior in multiplayer racing; the Comet is lightweight and relatively unstable, leading to the car being rammed off-road by the other vehicles, or being launched into the air off of hills and losing control, unless you are a good driver.

The conventional Comet in GTA Chinatown Wars retains its sporty performance, but is now ranked below higher end sports cars in the same, although its handling and braking are considerably good. The modified variant of the Comet is superior in speed, but is otherwise similar in performance to a standard Comet.

The Comet in GTA V is fairly similar to the Comet in GTA IV. The top speed and acceleration have been changed, however, and the most notable difference is that the GTA V version is rear-wheel drive, as opposed to a relatively uncommon all-wheel drive drivetrain in GTA IV. In GTA V, the car has fairly average performance for a sports car, but the traction is better than most of the sports cars. However, the car is very light and backheavy, so many players may find the overall handling undesirable, compared to similar cars that have better handling, such as the Feltzer and Elegy RH8.

  • The TransFender in Las Venturas charges 20% more for every modification except colors.

TriviaEdit

  • In GTA San Andreas, Carl Johnson always hops in the car without opening the door when getting in on the driver side; however, if the Comet is locked, CJ will not get in the car and the "jump in the car trick" is disabled, unless the player puts it in a garage, therefore unlocking it.
  • In some of the games in the series, the Comet's radio is set to a certain station, by default. They are as follows:
  • On the Xbox version of GTA Vice City, the fastback profile of the car is non-existent; instead, it shares the same back as the GTA San Andreas and GTA Vice City Stories Comet.
  • Comets in GTA Vice City Stories often fail to stop in time when approaching a traffic light. This will usually result in a collision if there is cars in front of the Comet.

  • The Beta version of the Comet featured a bigger Pfister logo on the hood.
  • As the Comet's engine is rear designed, if a person is seen checking the engine of a Comet (due to it having black smoke come out of it) they will check the front where the trunk is and act like it's the engine.
  • After collecting all thirty cars for Stevie, he agrees to purchase cars from Niko Bellic. The Comet will fetch up to $11,000.
  • The plum colored Comet that Stevie request can sometime turn out bronze.
  • In GTA V, Southern San Andreas Super Autos shows the Comet at the website's wallpaper in both GTA V and GTA Online. However, the car isn't purchasable Online

GTA Vice CityEdit

GTA San AndreasEdit

GTA Vice City StoriesEdit

GTA IV + Episodes from Liberty CityEdit

  • Obtained in the mission "No. 1" (given by Brucie Kibbutz), where the player must race others using a Comet from Brucie's friend, Stevie. After winning the race (and the mission), Brucie will allow the player to keep the Comet as a gratuity. This Comet has a unique rich gold color, much darker than a normal yellow Comet.
  • The Comet will be always seen during the mission "Payback". While the player is chasing the Pavanos, a Comet is seen getting into a car accident; the player can stop to take this car, although doing so is likely to lead to mission failure.
  • Very rarely spawns in Algonquin, Liberty City.
  • Parked in the beginning of Bernie Crane's mission, "Hating the Haters". The player may park this Comet at a safehouse for safekeeping, and continue the mission in another car. In some cases the Comet is available in a very unusual dark grey color which appears red in certain angles, more specifically in the bumpers and skirts.
  • Parked again in the beginning of "Union Drive", there may be a Comet near where you start the mission and Bernie tells you to get a car; however, a Turismo may spawn instead.
  • If you are driving a Comet around South Bohan, you may find bunches of Comets parked in rows.


  • The Comet is one of the target cars to be stolen for Stevie in Stevie's Car Thefts. The car is parked in the Golden Pier parking lot in Westminster, Algonquin. The player can drive the target Comet to a Safehouse and store it; another will respawn in the same place it was found, and this Comet can be delivered to Stevie. This Comet comes in a unique plum color.
  • In Brucie's Races, sometimes an opponent or opponents will spawn in Comets, which can be stolen (although this will forfeit the race).
  • The Comet can be spawned by dialing (227)-555-0175 on the cell phone. This cheat code does not affect saved games.
  • May spawn while riding a Sanchez .

The Lost and DamnedEdit

The Ballad Of Gay TonyEdit

  • The vehicle is now extensively available and can be found driving around the streets of Algonquin.
  • A unique cream colored Comet, which looks pink in some angles, can be obtained in Triathlons.
