Porsche Carrera GT listed on Craigslist for $669,900

Every now and then, there are vehicles listed on Craigslist for sale — and some of them are the least you’d expect to see on this site. Last week, a Porsche Carrera GT was posted up for grabs on Craigslist Phoenix for a whopping $669,900. It is definitely a rare find.

The Porsche Carrera GT is a 2004 model with 7,790 miles. The listing does not indicate whether the vehicle has received modifications or not. The exterior appears bold enough but the interior seems to be a little worn out.

What makes the Porsche Carrera GT extra special despite its age is its powerful core. It comes with a superb V10 engine that delivers 605 hp and 435 lb.-ft. of torque. As a result, the Porsche Carrera GT is capable of a 205-mph top speed and a 60-mph acceleration, which can be attained in just 3.5 seconds. This supercar is only offered in a six-speed manual transmission with a racing-type clutch unlike the supercars of today, which are offered in multiple transmission variants.

How rare and limited of an edition is the Porsche Carrera GT, you ask? Well, only 1,270 units of the 1,500 planned made it through the production. Thanks to the amendments in the US safety regulations, the US has become the biggest market for the Porsche Carrera GT. This explains why a 2004 model is being offered for nearly $700,000. Moreover, it only happens once in a blue moon for one to appear on Craigslist.

The listing is from Scottsdale, Arizona’s, DDW Partners. The dealership appears to be specializing in speed. However, it also offers a number of pickups.

Last year, a dealership was also selling a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT with just 765 miles on the clock for $1.195 million. It is quite unusual to find a Porsche Carrera GT with not more than 1,000 miles on the clock. Another 2005 model went up for sale at a little over $1 million, with just 874 miles on the clock.

This 2004 model on Craigslist may have a high mileage for a limited edition Porsche that is definitely a classic but a $669,900 purchase is a relatively good idea.

Having a Porsche Carrera GT listed on Craigslist tells a thing or two. It might not be too long before more dealerships and even private owners consider this as a viable way to sell expensive cars. While the buildup might take some time, it is undeniable that Craigslist might just be the next stop for ‘casual supercar purchases’.
