We are living in some interesting times right now. We have the COVID pandemic still looming, inflation climbing mountains, digital currency about to shake things up, suppliers lacking the stock to keep production of goods on schedule, a microchip shortage supposedly preventing dealers from keeping new inventory, and the used automotive market proving to be the craziest it has ever been due to many complicated factors.

To further prove just how crazy the automotive market is, a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT with only 250 miles just sold on Bring a Trailer for $2 million. For those of you who know about the famous Carrera GT, it was originally priced at about $450,000 when it was new during its model years of 2004 – 2007. Of course, there’s much more to be said about this very special vehicle, apart from the fact that it is the formidable vehicle that Paul Walker died in, which was mostly attributed to the aged tires. Not to mention, there were only 1,270 examples ever produced all sporting a unique 5.7-liter naturally aspirated V10 engine with 603 horsepower linked up to a 6-speed manual transmission. The sound is intoxicating! If you ever get a chance to listen to one, do it, because there’s not much else like it.

In today’s automotive market we’re currently seeing E46 BMW M3s and Mk4 Toyota Supras sell for six figures, Acura Integra Type Rs sell for nearly $50,000, modern Ford GTs sell for over a million, 2005 and 2006 Ford GTs sell for nearly $500,000, and the Bad Boys movie 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo sold for $1.3 million. The prices are just crazy, and they aren’t showing any signs of slowing down!
