“Stunning Low-Mileage Porsche Carrera GT in Speedster Blue: A Must-See Beauty”

Thanks to its unique color scheme from the 1950s, the Carrera GT stands out as one of Porsche’s most recognizable and beloved models, alongside the 959 and 918 Spyder. Many consider it to be one of Porsche’s most authentic modern sports cars for drivers.
However, due to its rarity, with only 1,270 produced, the Carrera GT carries a hefty price tag, often selling for over a million dollars at auction. This particular 2004 model is estimated to go for between $1.5 million and $1.8 million at the upcoming Porsche 75th Anniversary sale in Atlanta, Georgia, from June 8-10.

The Carrera GT boasts a mighty 5.7-liter V10 engine that was initially designed for a Le Mans prototype race car. Pumping out an impressive 603 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 435 lb-ft of torque, this powerful machine embodies the essence of a race engine adapted for use on public roads. While modifications were made to comply with emission and noise regulations, the Carrera GT’s engine still delivers a thrilling, ear-pleasing auditory experience.

The monocoque chassis and subframe of the vehicle were constructed entirely from pure carbon fiber, making it the first car to do so. Its weight was an impressive 3,042 pounds, which was almost 200 pounds lighter compared to a BMW 3 Series coupe from the same period.

The Carrera GT boasts impressive performance figures, even when compared to modern-day supercars. It can go from 0-62mph in just 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 206mph. But unlike most current supercars, this model had very few driver aids, even for its time, and was only available with a six-speed manual transmission.
