Unique Porsche Carrera GT discovered abandoned in China
Pics showing three supercars abandoned in a locked-down dealership in China eight years ago just emerged on Instagram, their author highlighting the unique Porsche Carrera GT among them (see video).
The story holds that this dealership was among the first in China to start offering European supercars there, including the Italian Ferrari and Maserati brands. However, it was shut down when its owner was arrested on corruption charges, and has never reopened since.
The photographer believes the Porsche Carrera GT had sat there for around eight years. In all likelihood, the car’s previous owner handed it over to the dealer for subsequent sale, but never received his money or the car back.
The chassis serial number suggests that the vehicle is 1,255th out of 1,270 produced, making it quite rare as is. However, the Zanzibar Red Metallic paint it wears ramps up the exclusivity much higher than that, because only three vehicles out of the whole production batch received this paintjob.
The other two cars are a fifth-gen Chevrolet Corvette Z06 and a Ferrari 575 Superamerica. The fate of the trio remains undecided so far.
