For Sale at Auction: 2005 Porsche Carrera in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Accompanied by a printed report listing its original factory data, this almost otherworldly Carrera GT was built during February 2005, priced at a heady $452,989 new. One of the 644 examples sold new to the United States during the entire production run spanning 2004-06, it was originally finished in black. However, while the car was undamaged and had undergone limited use with only an approximate 3,300 miles from new, the current owner/collector entrusted well-known supercar expert Jamie Cummings, proprietor of Karosserie in Wayne, PA, to elevate the car's presentation well beyond its already stellar factory-original standards. Karosserie is the only factory-certified body and paint shop for Pagani Automobili, in addition to enjoying factory certifications from Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren and Porsche. All work was performed over a three-month timeframe at Karosserie with an "open checkbook" approach. In preparation for a full color change, the car was carefully stripped to the central carbon-fiber "tub," with attention paid to the Carrera GT's body surfaces and intricate details. The owner's vision demanded that the work be performed to standards the factory would have used, given the technologies and knowledge base now available today. The concours-quality paint finish, including the matching brake calipers, is a bespoke PPG Red hue, chosen by the Carrera GT's owner only after many samples were methodically scrutinized and eliminated. Furthering the uncompromising attention lavished on the car, all single-use rubber body seals were replaced with new items in the process, along with the windshield, which had just one minor, yet visible, imperfection. Another welcome update applied to this Carrera GT involved the painstaking "cost-no-object" conversion of the factory-original hydraulic rear spoiler actuators in favor of a specially engineered electrical system, ensuring correct deployment and symmetry at all times. The original hydraulic system is included with sale of the Carrera GT. Also accompanying this stunning supercar are both keys and the full complement of never-used fitted luggage, which includes a Porsche wardrobe duffel bag, roof cover, satchel and accessory bag. Finishing touches include a fresh service, installation of a new battery and fitment of the last set of factory-specified, date-current tires known available for the car in the United States. 3,310 miles (mileage not indicated on title).
