  • 2011 Gemballa Mirage GT Matte Blue Edition

2011 Porsche Carerra GT Gemballa Mirage GT Matte Blue 1024x768 Rear viewGemballa is German tuning company located less than 20 km from the Porsche plant in Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen.

One product line that has been associated with Gemballa has been the Mirage GT, which is based on the Porsche 980  Carrera GT. Over the years, Gemballa has released a number of Mirage models based on the Carrera GT, including the Carbon Edition, the Matte Edition, the Black Edition, and the Gold Edition. Recently, the German tuning company released the latest iteration of the super aggressive Mirage GT, christening it the “Matte Blue Edition”.

Those figures translate to a 0-62 mph time of 3.7 seconds (down from the stock version’s 3.9-second time) with a top speed of 208 mph, which in turn is up from the Carrera GT’s 205-mph top speed.

Aerodynamically, the Mirage GT Matte Blue Edition comes with the same aerodynamic kit as all the other special edition models, which is to say that we expect Gemballa’s rather over-the-top aerodynamic package on the front, side, and rear of the car to be highlighted on the Matte Blue Edition. Likewise, this version of the Mirage GT will also carry the same interior treatment, including the carbon seatblends, and the two-tone – in this case, its black and white – leather finish.

Jerry Seinfeld’s 2004 Porsche Carrera GT is For Sale

  • Porsche Carrera GT is For Sale

Jerry Seinfeld's Porsche Carrera GTAnother car from the collection of celebrity Porschephile Jerry Seinfeld is up for sale. While the advertisement for this 2004 Carrera GT at Canepa Design simply says “celebrity owned”, a brief perusal of the pictures included with the listing provide a fairly obvious paper trail proving this Porsche’s provenance.

Will Celebrity Provenance Push Pricing Higher?

Even though we’re never quite sure how to value celebrity provenance, the market sure seems to. Look at what happened a few week’s ago with a Porsche 911 Turbo previously owned by David Beckham (which, by the way, is back up for sale).

While Canepa’s site doesn’t list a price for this stunner, if past sales of other Jerry Seinfeld Porsches are any indication, it’s a safe bet this particular Porsche will ring in well above the average asking price for similar CGTs with similar miles
