2005 Porsche Carrera GT
We are less than a month away from when we make our yearly pilgrimage to automotive Mecca. Monterey Car Week will be the place to be if you are an automotive enthusiast. From historic cars racing at Laguna Seca to car shows and auctions, the week has it all with everything leading up to the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
One of the auction houses that will be in Monterey is Mecum. They will be offering over 600 collector cars including some very special Porsches, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Corvettes.
The above pictured 2005 Porsche Carrera GT has only 152 miles on it from new. With its 605 horsepower 5.7-liter V-10 and manual 6-speed transmission it should be quite fun to drive. Although, anyone likely to purchase this example will not want to put too many additional miles on it.
This 1989 Porsche 962 won the ’89 Daytona 24 Hours. It was driven by Derek Bell and is the fastest 962 of its period. This is one we would love to have ourselves, so if everyone wants to chip in about $20, together we may have a chance to buy it.
