Exclamation Need help understanding this Carfax/Autocheck

Am looking to buy a 991.1 S at a Porsche dealer and even though the car checks out fine I found something odd on both, carfax and autocheck

Both show first mileage reporting at 7485 miles in January 2015 and that too at an auction. The carfax history starts in January 2015. Nothing before that. First owner is reported in May 2015. which is over a year after the car was manufactured. So this is a one owner car that is an early 2014 build that was driven 7485 miles in 2014 and then sold at an auction in Jan 2015 where a new dealer picked it up and sold to 1st owner. in May 2015? But there is no mention of anything in 2014.

I have never seen this before. Carfax and Autocheck show nothing for 2014 and both indicate 1 owner car. Per Vinanalytics, it was manufactured March 2014 and warranty start is May 2014. Only thing I can think of is that it may have been used by the original dealer by GM or as a loaner and sold later at an auction with 7500 miles. No way to know,

Can anyone decipher this? I just noticed it and plan to ask the dealer tomorrow. Should I walk away from this car? Don't want the hassle of explaining the carfax to a future buyer when i have sell it.

Here is the link to autocheck.....
