The Carrera GT production car was unveiled in March 2003 at the Geneva motor show in Switzerland. Following great sales success, the target was raised from 1000 to 1500 cars, but finally 1270 Carrera GT supercars were produced. The cars were made between September 2003 and April 2006. In 2 years and 7 months approximately 2 cars were made each day. Carrera GT was one of the very few supercar projects in the world that was economically successful.
More importantly, it has become an icon, probably the best supercar ever made thanks to a purity and performance that is missing in today’s cars. There are sports cars. And there are racing cars. The Porsche Carrera GT, derived from a Le Mans prototype, is a 612 hp racing car with road registration.
RM Sotheby’s is auctioning a Porsche Carrera GT this coming 26th of November 2022. This fine example, bearing chassis number 000079, comes finished in GT Silver Metallic over an Ascot hide interior. Its odometer shows 22,127 miles or 35,611 kilometres and the sale will also come with a set of handbooks and a partial matching luggage set that came along with the car.
It’s not often that you get to see a well-preserved example of the Porsche Carrera GT these days, especially if you consider how valuable these cars to the eyes of automotive enthusiasts from around the world. So, you don’t miss this chance to acquire one of the best hypercars ever made!
