If you ask us, sacrificing a bona-fide Porsche Carrera GT for the making of a movie is almost unforgivable. Sacrificing both a Carrera GT and a Ferrari Enzo for the making of Redline is unconscionable. Now we find out a second GT barely made it out of filming Redline with its life.

Up for auction on eBay is a Carrera GT the seller claims was damaged while the filming the movie. Now, this isn't the GT that is seen going off a cliff, but instead is a GT once owned by the producer that was used and damaged during filming. Damage is confined to the left front, and the car still runs. It's just not drivable due to a busted front axle. The auctioneers warn that the repairs would cost much more than most new cars. Heck, an oil change on one of those probably cost more than some new cars.

Bidding starts at $100,000 (about $340k less than a new, undamaged GT) and is open to anyone and everyone not named Helmut Rehm. It seems Mr. Rehm of Germany hired an American eBayer to win the first attempt to auction the car, but then backed out of the deal. Be sure to read the kind, heartfelt letter to Mr. Rehm in the auction description. Here's an excerpt to whet your interest, "I think you are the lowest piece of $#%@ that walks the earth." Nice.

Check out the gallery for a couple more pictures, see the auction for more photos and detailed description.

      You guys are so pathetic over this carrera gt. You'll never be able to afford one so why do you care. Plus this movie was good, not fantastic but decent enough to be good. Sure the plot was crap and the actors were low budget but it wasnt ment to be a steller plot. This was to show off some men eyecandy, by that I mean hot women and hotter cars. Thats what this movie is about not some stupid plot. I would certainly go see this movie. Also, if you want to cry over something, cry over the fact that Eddie Griffin crashed a $1.2 million dollar Ferrari Enzo. That is worth crying cause they only made 399 of them.

        Keep your panties on.
        Have you ever heard of free speech??
        Future millionnaires or not, who cares
        what others think about the act. Its a sadistic move but if you have the money, I guess you are the one who gets to make the call. The director is already sleeping in a bed of millions. He made this movie to show of his garage as an idea of self-entertainment. It could have been better, sure..And as far as your comment about "..they only made 399 of them".. anyone past puberty already knew that.

      Has anyone seen this movie yet? I haven't but the previews didn't exactly wow me... All I can say is that if you're going to sacrifice an Enzo and all these other fine automobiles, you'd better make damn sure that your movie is worth a crap.

      "Damage is confined to the left front, and the car still runs"

      I would take that a grain of salt. Why is it missing the left rear tailpipe and some of the valence?

      2 GTs AND an ENZO? This guy should be banned from owning rare cars, 3v4r!

      This movie has already moved me to tears, and I haven't even seen the celluloid yet.

      You're Telling me this clown wreaks Two, Three or Four vehicles and they get totaled by insurance or whoever and this chimp gets to collect again by selling to someone dumb enough to buy. Talk about double dipping.

      "Damage is confined to the left front, and the car still runs"

      Yeah! That will rub out real easy. NOT!

      On side note why can't it be more easy to post on this site.

      I real like to site but it would be so much easier to just post instantly.
