In the realm of automotive excellence, the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT stands as a testament to Porsche's engineering prowess and racing heritage. This particular Carrera GT, a U.S.-market model finished in the stunning GT Silver Metallic over Dark Gray leather upholstery, is a rare gem among the 1,270 examples produced. Its journey began when it was first acquired by its inaugural owner in Montreal after being officially imported to Canada by Porsche in March 2006. The current owner, having cherished this masterpiece since 2017, has ensured its impeccable condition, highlighted by a major service completed in December 2023.
The Carrera GT is renowned for its race-derived technology, most notably its naturally aspirated V10 engine that traces its origins back to a Le Mans LMP2000 race car prototype. This 5.7-liter powerhouse is a marvel of automotive engineering, delivering a breathtaking 605 horsepower and 435 lb.-ft of torque, all managed through a responsive 6-speed manual transmission. The car's performance is further augmented by its advanced carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) monocoque chassis and full carbon fiber bodywork, crafted with precision by ATR Group of Italy.
The Carrera GT's design is a blend of aesthetics and functionality. It features a two-piece removable roof panel, large side air intakes, a rear spoiler that activates electronically, and a distinctive carbon-fiber engine cover. Its 19”/20” forged magnesium center-lock wheels are not just visually striking but also enhance its dynamic capabilities. This particular Carrera GT, bearing only 2,191 miles, is a true collector's item. It has been meticulously maintained and recently received new Michelin Pilot Sport tires, ensuring it remains in pristine driving condition. The car's exterior, adorned in GT Silver Metallic, is protected by a full layer of clear paint protection film, and the recent service included addressing a headlight recall.
The interior of this Carrera GT is equally impressive, featuring Dark Grey leather upholstery complemented by carbon fiber, magnesium, and aluminum trim. The racing-style XT Bucket Seats with carbon-Kevlar shells provide both comfort and support, while the 917-style beechwood shift knob pays homage to Porsche's racing heritage. Modern conveniences such as power windows, mirrors, air conditioning, and a Porsche Online Pro CD stereo ensure a luxurious driving experience.
