Even though the youngest examples are now 11 years old, the Porsche Carrera GT is still one of the world’s greatest supercars. But we guess it hardly needs any introduction, so we’ll just skip right to the part where we tell you that, for $1,475,000, this 2005 PTS model might be a real bargain.
Yep, that’s right: a bargain. It’s not that it’s cheaper than most Carrera GTs out there, because it’s not. In fact, you can get one for less than $1 million if you want, but it will definitely have much more than just 260 miles (418 km) on the clock and it won’t feature a bespoke exterior color, either.
Judging from the description posted along with the eBay ad, this 2005 model was previously listed for $1.9 million over a year ago. The owner clearly feels as though the one of a kind Arancio Borealis Orange exterior and the fact that it’s basically brand new more than justify the asking price.
Also worth having in mind is the the probability of cars such as the Carrera GT going up in value exponentially in the future. It’s happening as we speak and we don’t see any signs of it declining any time soon, unless of course something goes terribly wrong with the economy.
As for features, it comes with leather seats, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, a CD player and, most importantly, an epic 5.7-liter mid-mounted V10 good for 612 PS (603 HP) and 590 Nm (435 lb-ft) of torque mated to a six-speed manual transmission. In a straight line, it will accelerate from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds and max out at 330 km/h (205 mph).
