One-Owner 342-Mile 2005 Porsche Carrera GT

Now available for auction is this 2005 Porsche Carrera GT finished in GT Silver Metallic over Dark Grey leather.  Among the last of the analog supercars, the Porsche Carrera GT remains an automotive icon and is commonly regarded as one of the greatest driver’s cars of all time. An engineering marvel, the Carrera GT was first debuted as a concept car at the 2000 Paris Motor Show featuring a V10 engine carried over from a Le Mans prototype race car design. Porsche subsequently produced a limited series of fully developed road-legal versions in 2004 at their new facility in Leipzig before production ceased in 2006 with approximately 1,270 examples built, of which only 644 were sold in the United States.  This 2005 example, chassis #0855, was delivered through a dealer in Texas and has remained part of the original owner’s collection since new.  Recently treated to a preventative engine-out service at a cost of nearly $50k, this exceptionally well-preserved Carrera GT has accumulated less than 400 miles and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Illinois accompanied by the original books, tools, and luggage.

Laid over a carbon fiber monocoque chassis, the bodywork of the Carrera GT is characterized by large air intakes, an electronically operated rear spoiler, and a double-humped carbon fiber engine cover with silver mesh grilles.  This example was ordered in the debut color of GT Silver Metallic and has been preserved with a layer of clear paint protection film over the full front end and mirror covers.  The lightweight forged magnesium 19"/20" wheels feature center-locking hubs and come dressed in a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires dated from 2016 in front and 2018 in the rear.

The cabin is trimmed in Dark Grey leather accented by a silver dashboard and center console, exposed carbon fiber, and a nostalgic beechwood shift knob paying homage to the legendary 917 Le Mans race car.  The pedals and passenger floorboard are made from aluminum and the removable roof panels are lined with quilted Alcantara.  Factory equipment includes 10mm raised bucket seats, air conditioning, a Porsche Online Pro CD radio, and a matching leather luggage set. Ahead of the steering wheel sits a traditional Porsche instrument cluster housing a central 10k-RPM tachometer flanked by a 220 MPH speedometer and gauges for coolant temperature, fuel level, oil temperature, and oil pressure.  The seller describes the cabin to remain like new with all gauges and accessories functioning properly.

The Carrera GT’s engine was originally developed as a secret project commissioned by the Footwork Formula One racing team in 1992.  After being shelved for several years, the design was eventually revived in anticipation of a new Le Mans prototype to replace the 911 GT1.  As Porsche redirected its efforts toward new developing new roadgoing models like the Cayenne, the Le Mans prototype project was abandoned and its V10 engine was reallocated for the Carrera GT supercar.

Developing over 600 HP, the high-revving 5.7L V10 engine features Nikasil coated cylinders, forged titanium connecting rods, forged pistons, dry-sump lubrication, and dual overhead camshafts with variable intake timing.  Power is fed to the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual transmission with a special twin-plate Porsche Ceramic Composite Clutch (PCCC).  The suspension consists of unequal-length control arms with horizontally mounted pushrod-actuated shock absorbers and anti-roll bars.  Stopping power is handled by Porsche’s Carbon fiber-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite braking system with 15” SGL Carbon discs.  Porsche claims an official 0-62 MPH acceleration time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 205 MPH, while independent studies have yielded higher results for both acceleration and top speed.  A major engine-out service had been carried out by an authorized Porsche dealer within the last several months.

This sale will include a set of keys, the original owner’s manuals, toolkit, car cover, luggage set, and a clean title.  The seller notes that the title for the car had been previously reassigned from the owner's business, thus two owners are shown on the CARFAX report. One of the quintessential supercars of the 2000s, this incredibly low-mileage Carrera GT makes a fine addition to any world-class car collection.  Do not let this very special opportunity pass you by.

  • nosubstitute4porsche (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @otis777... I was able to find it.. it took one second ... The luggage set for a Carrera GT is PORSCHE SKU 980 LUGGAGE SET. It DOES INCLUDE A WOODEN HANDLED BRIEFCASE as someone else asked about and what appears to be 6 other leather pieces.. It is available in black or what they describe as "TERRACOTTA" I hope this helps.

  • Otis777 (seller) 1 monthago

    @nosubstitute4porsche We do not have it at the store with the car but it is possible that briefcase was left behind with the rest of collection by mistake .We will do our best to locate it asap.

  • nosubstitute4porsche (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Otis777 is there a briefcase that is with the set you have here? if not you are missing it. Perhaps the previous owner kept it or whatever but I know one of the pieces was a briefcase.. I hope this helps but I know you have a lot of questions to answer ;>}

  • Otis777 (seller) 1 monthago

    @nosubstitute4porsche My apologies, we are still trying to confirm this with the previous owner and will keep you updated as soon as possible.

  • nosubstitute4porsche (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @otis777 sir just following up, were you ever able to check on the "
    wooden handled briefcase" not see if that does in fact exist as part of the luggage set? thank you.. maybe missed it

    I’m sure a few people watching this have already seen the car and know it’s a new car. There’s a lot of smart people out there. One will take this dream car home.

  • Stigarmy11 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    I’ve watched this listing and read comments since last week. I know of many many mistakes made by carfax as well as other reporting agencies. It stinks but The seller here did what was needed to make any potential bidder comfortable by allowing winning bidder to do PPI if they would like.

  • Calvinforman8 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Framgriece Agreed. Seller made correct move.
    Cornerstone collectible for sure. Let’s see $2M???

  • Framgriece (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    The seller just guaranteed all us good. Winner can performs PPI before paying for car. ALL GOOD HERE.
    So let’s move on to the fun part.
    Hoping for Very exciting ending on this spectacular delivery Miles icon.

  • SamE36 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @allthingsporsches it has a clean CarFax, but not a clean Autocheck. I wouldn't say for certain it has an accident on record unless it was on both. So it very well is a mistake, which I have seen a few times on vehicles.

    And you can measure coating thickness on non-metal body panels with an ultrasonic gauge. Elcometer makes a good one.

    It's a shame you won't be buying it.

  • enzo (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Otis777 normally on a car of this caliber the seller will post pictures of each individual panel with the paint meter present to show the corresponding reading. This would alleviate some of the hesitation that a buyer may or may not have. Good luck with your sale

  • Otis777 (seller) 1 monthago

    Hi Bidders - We have escalated this matter with AutoCheck case # 22908249 and are confident this will be correct soon . If anyone would like to have a PPI performed we have a Authorization Porsche a few Blocks away. Lastly we have all the proper tools to evaluate all vehicles and can assure this is a perfect example of a CGT. Happy Bidding

  • PaulVlas 1 monthago

    @allthingsporsches A ultrasonic PaintThicknessGauge can be used to measure paintwork on Fibreglass or CarbonFibre...but this instrument is very expensive, although I can imagine it's a standard tool for an exclusive-car-dealer.

  • Otis777 (seller) 1 monthago

    @allthingsporsches Thank you , we will

  • allthingsporsches (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Otis777 you should maybe contact auto check if that’s a mistake Wich Iam sure it isn’t , something happened with this car , not sure it was major but auto check wouldn’t just have that there , I was interested in purchasing this one , but on a car like this to have any type of negative story Is a huge deal

  • Otis777 (seller) 1 monthago

    @allthingsporsches Thank you for your comments , let me try this again .
    Inspection shows zero evidence of any previous damage .
    Clean Carfax history .
    Previous owner stands behind clean car history.
    Clearly wrong reporting on the AutoCheck’s part.
    Best regards

  • allthingsporsches (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Otis777 you said you have paint metered a carrera GT lol ? What did it read ? Paint meter doesn’t work on a CGT.

  • allthingsporsches (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @allthingsporsches not having paintwork doesn’t really explain an accident reported ? Was that a mistake and if so can we have it taken off on a 2m car or if the car was really involved in some accident

  • allthingsporsches (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @Otis777 I don’t think you answered Enzos question , he asked if you have an idea of what the damage or accident report was about ?

  • hyloleo 1 monthago

    Unequivocally the newest GT on the market!!! Carbon fiber to carpet FLAWLESS!!!

  • Otis777 (seller) 1 monthago

    @enzo Thank you , We have done our Due diligence - We have paint metered the whole vehicle and had it inspected. The vehicles paint/body is consistent and shows no signs of paint work or previous damage . We acquired the vehicle from a local collector and he also stands by the vehicle history being free of any previous damage . Also the carfax has a clean history . Please feel free to reach with any additional questions or concerns.

  • enzo (registered bidder) 1 monthago
