$14k seems decent
Yea here's the deal the link sends an email to his financial company. He has directed his receptionist to answer all calls about the car. I emailed about 6 times 3 directly to his personal email and I called 5 times and spoke to his secretary or whatever, she said "there's lots of interest in the car" that jerk never returned one call or email so I finally called her and said look I'm a real buyer I can be there tomorrow tell your boss that I want it. Still nothing. Frustrating!!

Doesn't take much damage on one of these cars for it to get a salvage title. I'd trust it with a good PPI. I would be worried about the lack of interior pics tho.

Is that because the insurance companies don't value the 968 particularly highly, or because of the high cost/hard to find replacement body panels?

Both, costs of parts sometimes exceeds 60% of the vehicles value, at which point the insurance company typically totals the car.
I would hope with recent surge in 968 values, they would save the car than total it.

If I would have ordered one of these cars new, it would have been that blue. Is that cobalt? Pains me to see it is an auto.

Re: Insurance Co's totaling cars. Until KBB values the cars at what we are paying for them the Insurance world will see a value of $6000 to $12000 vehicle and total it if repairs are just over 50%. That leaves a lot of fixable cars out there for salvage prices of maybe $1500 to $4000.

But "salvage" cars have a stigma. I wish I could find a "salvage" 57 Speedster, 71 914-6, 75 Carrera, 80 930. I can live with the stigma.

I knew a guy who had his car totaled (over his objections) because his stolen wheels and tires cost 50% of the KBB value of the car. In other words, the car had no damage and was totaled anyway.

Too dark for Tahoe blue, too light for Midnight blue so must be Cobalt.

Cobalt blue in a manual!
Interior looks and sounds a bit rough. Seller is in Utah.
If it was in better shape this would be a consideration for me although I think the asking price is a bit high given its condition.

Semi related question - do tou think cars that are re-sprayed in the orgininal color are less desirable? I know its nice to have the original factory paint and all.

It wouldn't matter to me but it would have to be a high quality respray.

Yes, nothing beats the factory paint that was applied to the car when it was new in an environment that ensured the highest quality. Paint adhesion is also the best with a factory paint job and there is nothing hidden underneath. They can do some great paint work now but it is only original once.

jeff, can you give us the specs on that listing? 820304

I think re-spray is right between salvage title and 'needs a clutch'.

in my world, 'loosing paint' is just part of the 'driving it as it was meant to be driven' game. bears trashed one of my black cars...three times, but the worst was the turkey that saw its reflection.
