Porsche Carrera GTs are quickly becoming one of the most sought-after collector cars from the mid-2000s. Values are creeping in on $1 million for sorted, low-mileage examples, so getting into one for cheap is becoming more and more difficult. If you’re not concerned about accident history or possible frame damage, this one for sale on Copart might be your last chance to own a Carrera GT for under half a million dollars.
This silver Carrera GT recently appeared on Copart’s salvage auction website and is currently up for bidding with nine days remaining. Located in St. Louis, Missouri, it carries a Missouri Salvage certificate of title and an odometer reading of 8384 miles. According to the listing, the car runs and drives, though pictures show a damaged front end and a deployed passenger airbag. From these photos alone it seems the car can be repaired, but there’s no telling just how much damage the carbon fiber monocoque sustained in the impact. Considering it was totaled out, we’re betting this car needs a whole lot more than just a new bumper cover.
While replacing a bunch of parts might be expensive, buying this Carrera GT might still be worth it, at least for some people. Buying and repairing it likely won’t cost as much as buying a clean one in similar condition, though there’s a chance it still might not drive as nicely even after the repairs, especially if there’s frame damage. And the accident history won’t help resale value, either. But if you’ve always wanted a Carrera GT but couldn’t quite afford one, this could be your unicorn.
The car is currently sitting at a high bid of $362,000 on Copart’s website as of this writing, with nine days remaining and a reserve that hasn’t been met. Better make your move quickly if you’re interested.
