The Porsche Carrera GT was unveiled as a concept car at the 2000 Paris Motorshow. The strong interest of the public convinced Porsche to start the production of this supercar. Production started in 2003 and finished in May 2006. In that period 1270 Porsche Carrera GTs left the factory. This 2004 Carrera GT was delivered new to Porsche of Barrington, Illinois, before being sold to its first owner in Florida in October 2004.  Currently the counter only indicates 4,700 miles. This low-mileage Porsche Carrera GT would be a great addition to any Porsche collection.

No doubt about the absolute eye-catcher among the Porsches at the Gooding & Company Auction in Scottsdale. The 1970 Porsche 914/6 GT will definitely draw the attention of many Porsche collectors. Soon after the introduction of the 4 cylinder mid-engine Porsche 914, Porsche started developing a race purpose car. But even before the the first Porsche 914/6 were delivered to their customers, the Porsche race department had a prototype ready : the Porsche 914/6 GT. Each individual car was tailored to a specific purpose. The Porsche  914/6 GT officially debuted at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June 1970, where Guy Chasseuil and Claude Ballot-Lena’s Sonauto entry scored a class win and placed 6th Overall. Chassis 914 043 1017, is one of only 16 examples that the Porsche Racing Department built in 1970 for customer use. We can recommend the book “Porsche – the racing 914s” by Roy Smith in case you want to know more about these cars
