5 Ultra-Rare Modern Cars For Sale on Autotrader

Later today, I’m going to give you a glimpse into the world of the Mercedes-Benz R63 AMG — one of the rarest modern cars in existence, and the rarest modern AMG vehicle. But before I do that, I’m going to show off a few other ultra-rare modern cars that you can buy right now on Autotrader — five cars that prove a vehicle doesn’t have to be "vintage" in order to be unusual and rare. Here goes:

  2009 Dodge Durango Hybrid

2009 Dodge Durango Hybrid – $9,950

If you were to make a list of the rarest cars of the 2000s, you might be surprised to find that you’d probably have to include at least one Chrysler SUV, and possibly two: the Dodge Durango Hybrid and its ultra-rare twin, the Chrysler Aspen Hybrid. Chrysler made around 800 total examples encompassing both vehicles, and there are just five currently listed for sale on Autotrader — three Durango Hybrids and two Aspen Hybrids. This Durango Hybrid is offered by Car Pros in Largo, Florida, for $9,950. Find a 2009 Dodge Durango for sale

  2006 Jaguar X-Type Wagon

2006 Jaguar X-Type Wagon – $9,910

In the mid-2000s, Jaguar debuted a "3 Series fighter" — a smaller model that could take on rivals like the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class. This was uncharted territory for Jaguar, and they didn’t exactly know what the public would want — so they offered a station wagon version. Virtually nobody bought it, however, and there are currently only seven listed on Autotrader across the entire country. This one is available for $9,910 at Kepich Ford in rural Garrettsville, Ohio, near Cleveland. Find a 2006 Jaguar X-Type Wagon for sale

2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe

2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe – $19,995

Most car enthusiasts know about the Pontiac Solstice — but most people have no idea the Solstice Coupe exists. Offered only in the Solstice’s final model year of 2009 and available in tremendously limited numbers, the Solstice Coupe was a hardtop version of the relatively popular Pontiac Solstice. This listing — a private seller in Las Vegas offering this Solstice for $19,995 — suggests this car is one of just 19 with this equipment, and that seems accurate; Pontiac made very, very few of these before being shuttered by parent company General Motors. Find a 2009 Pontiac Solstice for sale

2013 Porsche Cayenne Manual

2013 Porsche Cayenne Manual – $35,995

Although most luxury cars — and all other luxury SUVs — are now offered solely with an automatic transmission, Porsche bucked the trend for a few years with the Cayenne. The first-generation Cayenne (2003-2010) was offered with a stick shift for the V6 model or the V8-powered GTS, but even the second-generation Cayenne (2011 to present) was available with a manual — though it was only offered on the V6. Unfortunately, Porsche’s latest facelift has taken away the stick-shift Cayenne — but there are a few recent models listed for sale on Autotrader with three pedals. This one is at Maximum Auto Outlet in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C., for $35,995. Find a 2013 Porsche Cayenne for sale

2011 Suzuki Equator

2011 Suzuki Equator – $14,590

Yes, there’s a Suzuki pickup truck. And if the design looks familiar to you, well, there’s a reason for that: This Suzuki is actually a Nissan Frontier. The Suzuki Equator was offered from 2009 to 2012, and it was little more than a Nissan Frontier with a few updated trim pieces, a new grille and different wheels. There are quite a few Equator models on Autotrader, and you see them occasionally — but most pickup people have no idea this thing exists. It’s offered for $14,590 by Wholesale Direct in Mooresville, North Carolina, near Charlotte. Find a 2011 Suzuki Equator for sale
