The 2008 Australian Carrera Cup was the sixth and last Australian Carrera Cup Championship. The season began on February 21, 2008 at the Clipsal 500 and will finish on October 26 at the Gold Coast Indy 300. The season consisted of nine rounds across five different states.

Craig Baird dominated the series, winning 14 of the series 25 races and the New Zealander driving for Fitzgerald Racing became the first driver to win the series twice, adding to his 2006 championship win. West Australian Dean Fiore was the runner up for Sonic Motor Racing, taking four wins and dominating the Mount Panorama round. Third was David Russell in the Sherrin Motor Sport car.

The most dramatic moment of the season was when category managers Sherrin Motor Sport collapsed, leaving the series briefly in limbo. With the assistance of CAMS and Porsche Australia, Glenn Ridge owned company Q Media Events took over the running of the series.
