Default Blue gt3

Hey y’all! Fellow pcar owner. Been eyeing 991 gt3s. Doing my research, so no stupid questions. Anyone know this car? Checks all the boxes minus the taillights. Thx!

It says it has a salvage title and was a total loss in the description on their webpage...

There are no stupid questions, except those that are not asked. Always research a VIN before wasting your time checking the boxes.

Side topic - does anyone know how a car gets tagged with a "salvage" designation? The link above shows $32K of repairs on a $164K car. What's the threshold for "salvage"? And does that vary by state or is it a national thing?

General rule - Cost of Repair + Salvage value > Cash Value of Car. This rule is tweaked by state regulations.

There's a white one on Copart that looks like a reasonable project car. The buy it now is around $65k. Banks typically aren't interested in financing salvage cars, insurance becomes a hassle and selling one down the road will leave you with a narrow market. Not sure how Porsche would handle an engine warranty on a salvage car

I see people saying this all the time and it just isn't true. I have financed a salvaged titled car myself with no issues whatsoever. Yes, absolutely there are people who wouldn't touch a salvaged car. I used to be one of them but a little open mindedness and experience changed my view. Since you are buying low you'll end up selling low as well - so what?

That said, as for this car, I think there are too many components in the rear of any 911 to make me confident that everything has been repaired properly. Plus it's a GT3, people tend to be a little more passionate (read: picky) about these cars. I'd pass.

Plus the price difference between this and a non-salvage is only 10-20k.
