Chassis no. WP0CA29885L001420. Paint to sample Polar Silver over black leather. 5733/605hp, 6-speed, yellow calipers, carbon fiber shift knob and handbrake, red seat belts, books, luggage.

Evaluation: One of 19 North American delivered paint-to-sample Carrera GTs and reportedly the only one in Polar Silver. Why someone decided to pay extra for paint-to-sample and still pick silver is a mystery. Polar Silver has a bit more blue in it than regular old GT Silver, and according to the Gooding catalog it’s “markedly different,” but honestly anyone but Porsche anoraks won’t know the difference. Anyway, the car has 2400 miles, has been regularly serviced, and essentially looks new.

Bottom Line: Even in our current hot market, the Porsche Carrera GT’s upward charge is remarkable. They were sub-$1M cars just a couple of years ago, but now they’re a lot closer to and in some cases more than $2M. Since August 2021, the record auction price for the model has been broken four times. If this result is any indication, Carrera GTs are still growing. As of this writing $2,012,500 is a new record price, but those records don’t seem to stand very long lately.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
