2004 Porsche Carrera GT Is Our Bring a Trailer Auction Pick of the Day

The one-of-1270 5.7-liter V-10–powered supercar was bought new by comedian and Porsche aficionado Jerry Seinfeld.

• Our Bring a Trailer auction pick of the day is a 2004 Porsche Carrera GT that was bought new by comedian and Porsche aficionado Jerry Seinfeld.

• It has a naturally aspirated 5.7-liter V-10 that produces 605 horsepower at 8000 rpm and six-speed manual transmission.

• Carrera GTs have recently broken BaT records, and one recently sold for $2 million. This auction ends on March 11, and bidding is already at $1.6 million.

UPDATE: The Porsche, which was listed at no reserve, sold for $1,865,000.

Porsche Carrera GTs are breaking Bring a Trailer auction records left and right. Have a few million dollars to spare and want to pull up to Starbucks with a buddy pretending like you’re Jerry Seinfeld in Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee? Thenthis example, for sale on BaT—which, like Car and Driver, is part of Hearst Autos—is for you. We say that because this 2004 Carrera GT, showing 3700 miles, was first purchased by Seinfeld in 2005, and we hope no valet drivers with BBO have been hanging out in the V-10–powered mid-engine supercar.

Porsche built 1270 Carrera GTs from 2004 to 2007. The production car was based on a concept that debuted at the 2000 Paris auto show. Carrera GTs have a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic monocoque, and this example is finished in black, one of five color choices that also included Fayence Yellow and Guards Red. The chassis, designed by the same Italian company that finessed the Ferrari Enzo, features a pushrod-activated suspension.

The Carrera GT is powered by a naturally aspirated 5.7-liter V-10 with dual overhead cams on each cylinder bank and titanium connecting rods. That engine produces 605 horsepower at 8000 rpm and 435 pound-feet of torque at 5750 rpm, and it was only available with a six-speed manual gearbox. Service done on this car last September included an oil change, and the powertrain was removed to replace the rear main seal and clutch release module. In our Carrera GT test in the June 2004 issue of Car and Driver, the car reached 60 mph in 3.5 seconds on the way to a 11.2-second quarter-mile at 132 mph.

The original New York title in Seinfeld’s name is included in the sale, and the window sticker shows delivery to South Shore Porsche with an original sale price of $448,300. With 11 days left in the online auction, bidding is up to $1,600,000 already, and we expect the price to approach or even exceed $2 million by the time it ends on March 11.
