Carcharodon hubbelli is an extinct species of shark known from fossils found in the Pisco Formation in south-west Peru. The shark is a transitional species, showing intermediate features between present-day great white sharks and smaller, prehistoric mako sharks.

This shark was named in honour of Gordon Hubbell (the scientist who recovered the specimen from a farmer who found it in 1988) in recognition of his contribution to shark palaeontology.
