The Porsche Carrera GT is considered by many people -- including me -- to be the pinnacle of Porsche's excellence, touting the ultimate in supercar driving experience. Many people think the connection between car and driver will never really be replicated in any other vehicle, leaving the Carrera GT as the "high water mark" of the Porsche world. If you're among the people who think that, now you can buy one of the most desirable Carrera GT models.

It's this bright orange 2005 Carrera GT, painted using Porsche's "Paint to Sample" program in a color dubbed Arancio Borealis. It's a one-of-a-kind color, in the sense that there are no other Carrera GT models painted in it -- and the impressive points about this car don't stop there. Another one is the fact that it's traveled just 260 miles from new.

That's right: This is a 2005 Carrera GT with just 260 miles, painted in a one-of-a-kind color -- and anyone who knows Porsche knows that "paint to sample" cars have recently commanded a massive premium. That's why this Carrera GT is, not surprisingly, listed for $1,475,000 -- or more than twice the going rate of a regular model. Anyone who follows the Carrera GT market will know this price is well within the realm of possibility.

This Carrera GT is offered by a private seller in Sacramento, California, and it's described as "like the day it came off the assembly line." The gorgeous collection of professional photos seems to support that description.
