This particular Carrera GT is the 542nd of the 1,270 examples completed. It was special ordered new in the Fall of 2004 by a noted Porsche collector. The order was highly specific and to his exact standards. It consisted of a US / North American Market example to be built and delivered directly at the Factory Service and Client Center in Leipzig, Germany. The order further requested Basalt Black Metallic exterior paint with Terracotta full leather interior on special wider bucket seats, left and right with black “Porsche” logo carpets. The light alloy rims were also painted body color. It was as such, the sole example completed in these specification and the extra features, options, dealer premium and Factory delivery pushed the invoice price up from $440,000 to an astounding $537,210 making the highest known invoiced Carrera GT sold new in the States.
The original owner took delivery in April of 2005 at the Porsche Factory and covered just over 800 miles during the next 30 days before it was returned to the Factory, serviced and then shipped to the States in May of 2005. The original owner kept the car with him at his residence in New Hampshire during the Summer and shipped it to Florida in the Winter. In 2017 which just over 8,500 miles, it was sold and purchased by the second owner who then arranged for the car to receive Porsche North America's new full service and bulletin maintenance program at a total cost of just under $80,000. New Michelin's were then installed and the vehicle driven an additional 200 miles prior to our purchase in July of this year.
All services and safety checks as well as tires are near zero time fresh. Total mileage from new is just 8,738 miles. A massive cache of all of the original delivery items and more importantly every original record, correspondence and receipt is ultra carefully preserved and available for inspection and examination.
This two-owner, fully documented, completely serviced and meticulously cared for Porsche would be a most welcome addition to any collection. Please contact me if I can assist further with inspections and test drives. I can also assist with any manner of word-wide delivery.
