(+)-car-3-ene synthase (EC, 3-carene cyclase, 3-carene synthase, 3CAR, (+)-3-carene synthase) is an enzyme with systematic name geranyl-diphosphate diphosphate-lyase (cyclizing, (+)-car-3-ene-forming). This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

geranyl diphosphate (+)-car-3-ene + diphosphate

The enzyme reacts with (3S)-linalyl diphosphate twice as rapidly as geranyl diphosphate.
