At $55,000, Would You Spice Up Your Life With This 2009 Porsche Cayenne GTS?

The seller claims this GTS to be one of only 128 manual-equipped models ever shipped to the U.S.

The Unicorn is only one of a number of mythical beasties, but for some reason, it has risen in pop culture most importantly the others to serve as the amulet for anything unusual or apparently unobtainable. Based upon its manual transmission, the vendor of today’s Nice Rate or Split Pipe Cayenne defines it as a unicorn. Let’s see if its cost makes it just as mythical.

Have you ever seen the DePalma variation of Scarface? Possibly its most remarkable scene is the frenetic climax in which Al Pacino’s personality, the by-then battle bloodied Tony Montana, spittle-shouts at his assailants “Greet to my little close friend!” while whipping out a Colt AR-15 attack rifle and then opening fire.

We checked out one more sort of little pal last Thursday, albeit one that would certainly likely be much less violent. If you were to describe our candidate 1965 Citroën 2CV in a pleasant style, you might much more cheekily refer to it as “Mon petit ami” while lighting up a Gitanes and simultaneously drinking an espresso. If last Thursday’s little Citroën were to appear in a film, it would possibly be somewhere between rather than during a bloody orgasm, and most likely just for comic relief. Still, a little buddy is a little good friend.

Unfortunately for the Citroën’s seller, few of you discovered its $16,500 asking price to be specifically pleasant. That resulted in a slim yet crucial 56 percent No Dice loss. Ideally, we can all still remain pals afterwards.

If you have pals and also they require exciting, you could do much even worse than by showing them today’s 2009 Porsche Cayenne GTS. It is, besides, one of the really rare versions furnished with a ZF six-speed manual transmission behind its 4.8 litre, naturally-aspirated edition of Porsche’s stalwart V8. That engine offers 399 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque and can push the two-and-a-half-ton Porsche to sixty in under 6 seconds. You can do that and also a lot more in just the very first two equipments.

This set features a modest 91,000 miles on the clock and a current servicing from a Porsche professional shop. The clean-title cars and truck sports a three-way black (paint, inside, wheels) presentation and is defined by the vendor as remaining in exceptional problem. The pictures in the ad assistance that assertion, showing no indicators of any kind of flaw in the paint neither trim, and also an interior that looks virtually as new. Its age is hidden a bit by the absence of some modern cabin gears like a digital dashboard, but that’s a small quibble.

According to the vendor, only 1,200 manual designs were built in this generation of GTS and also of those, only 128 handled to make the lengthy watercraft trip to U.S. shores. That makes for a rather low possibility of you facing one more at any time as well as for this reason limits the possibility of any type of type of Westside Story-style dance-off.

We don’t obtain much more details from the advertisement, aside from that the Cayenne has actually been garage-kept as well as accordingly preserved. The vendor additionally says the price is non-negotiable which likely explains why the ad has actually been up for more than three weeks with no noticeable motion.

That non-negotiable rate is $55,000 and it’s now time for you all to weigh in and also provide us your viewpoint on this seemly uncommon Cayenne’s value and after that vote on that price.

What do you think, do a manual transmission as well as a spotless presentation make this Porsche worth that $55,000 asking? Or, does that rate take all the heat out of this Cayenne?

You determine!
