Default Porsche Carrera GT not doing so well in sales / residual value in states

PS:- MODS please change the topic heading with Residual insteas of ReCidual..sorry for the sp error..

I have been going through some sales sites just for fun and saw couple of CGTs being offered @ 60-70k discount from MSRP brand new..100-300 miles on the car..thats bad news and they are 2005 model..

I dont know why wouldnt one pick that up..I dont see enzo or any others being sold @ that sort of a discount..

anyhow while I was roaming around in downtown chicago, I stop by Bentley Gold Coast, my fav spot..

They had Red Enzo, 2 CGTs, 2 Murcielago Roadsters, 2 SLRs, 1 RR, 1 Arnage, 2 Conti GTs, 2 Flying Spurs, 1 Vanquish S, 1 DB9, 2 F430s, 2 360s, some porsche and this is downtown chicago, the space is not all that big..but man..what a site..why goto an auto show this place just as good..

Ahh..my pledge to self that day..gotta go buy something from them one day..

You are very lucky to have a 'vette . Enjoy that man!!!! We'll see abou these beauties later.......

Yeah, why should the CGT be worth less? Maybe because it has even less comfort than the Enzo but not that badge.
And also unlike the Enzo, in which there is the option of switching off all electronic driver aids, there are no driver aids at all in the CGT. So maybe its very difficult to drive for anyone other than a professional racing driver.
