$1.5M Gets You A Barely Driven 2005 Porsche Carrera GT In Arancio Borealis

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).

    This car is absolutely stunning, and amazing that it only has 260 miles on it. Question, did Porsche paint the “bespoke exterior color” ? Or did the owner have it done? The story is not clear on that point. If the owner had it painted outside of Porsche, then there is your reason why it has not yet been sold. But of course, maybe Porsche did paint it??

  • In conjunction with Six_Tymes statement, the choice of word is like carefully not confirming if it’s done by factory or not. Apparently the owner make a site just for this car, he only mention that this car is a Paint to Sample from factory, while there is indeed a Porsche Exklusiv program with that name, the owner seems to carefully not to mention done by Porsche, and beside since he own the car from new, he could have shown the build sheet that listed the option there.

    But honestly, the owners looks like BS, in his site he claims that he has been offered $2 millions for it, and he probably let it go for $2,5. Now he is lowering the price is even more. I also doubt his statement that “”many” Porsche owner considered my car to be the most unique Carrera GT in existence”

    Oh, this color is from Lambo, the owner admits from his site.

      If re-painted, just remove a zero.
