Hi, I just got my copart account setup. Not a broker. I am looking to buy a 1995 - 1998 porsche carrera 993. Anyone have any idea on what these typically go for at auctions? This will be a donor car as I already have a straight body car.

Why does every Utuber that buys a wrecked car immediately try to start the thing without doing any preliminary checks. Let's risk destroying this car that I just bought

Nice job, running / driving Porsche 911 for $4250. two radiators, a front bumper, one turn signal needed. heck of a deal. I say you run it without the bumper.

If you are going to fix and keep the car yourself, that can be fine. But flip it with a salvage title ? No thanks, not buying it. There was a reason the car was totaled in the first place. To keep it off the road and because it cost a body shop too much to fix the car over its value. Metal in certain areas of the car could have lost their fatigue strength. Especially when pulling and straightening sub frame.

The water-cooled 911s are losing their price pretty fast. Its pretty funny how the rare water cooled Porsche enthusiast are always crying: "The water-cooled 911s are so GREEAAT. BEST cars ever! Why they are losing price???? WHYYYYYYYY????"
Answer is: they are crap to keep and collect.

Don't forget to install a spoiler and a roll cage or anything that resembles a GT3, or simply go insane with an RSR kit.

If I was 16 years old it would look good to me but he'll be into this for better than twenty Grand and it's still in 996 salvage that anywhere you look you're going to see age where in the lot of bad things and for a purist they're not going to want it the wonderful thing is that one dayif you didn't nut and bolt restoration on it it might be worth two hundred fifty thousand but we're none of us are going to live long enough to see thatbut again time spent chasing parts trying to get good deals on parts on the phone for hours and hours and days trying to put it together you're better off to spend an extra $15,000 and get something worth

Try selling a salvage title...LOL Guess what happens when you go into a dealer with a salvage? They tell you to take a hike, and all warranties are canceled.

There's a reason that car ran through a salvage auction. I'm not sure how he thinks he's going to repair it properly, but I can say that Porsche structural parts are NOT available new to everyone. And Porsche has very stringent requirements as to how they are repaired, even down to the rivets used in their construction. You MUST be PACC certified to obtain the structural parts for most of them (I know, I'm a Porsche certified collision tech). I wouldn't trust buying this car.

I saw a totaled Porsche 911 about the same age as yours with the rear bumper off and exhaust but the back was so empty and I’d never seen a Porsche without a rear bumper so I didn’t go near it

Did you ever look to see if this 996 has the IMS fix installed? Would be great to see how you'd tackle trying to check that without having a full lift to look at the underside of the engine. Seems like it should be visible from the attachment to the oil filter.

Nice score!!!! Unless there is evidence of prior work, I recommend replacing the IMS bearing (and clutch / RMS while at it). Also, have the AOS (air/oil separator) checked out / replaced. $2-3k well worth spending IMO (parts) or $3-5k with labor

Okay what's your not taking into account is no matter what the car is. When fixed, a salvage car is only worth 40% of wholesale book. Plus 60-75% of all insurance Co. Won't insure salvage cars. And an increasing amount of cities/ county will no longer reg. Salvage title cars.

If i'm not mistaken, isn't this the year model where the CMS bearings /motors would detonate if you didn't take care of that issue. As many miles as this one has, if it hasnt failed yet, it's about ready too. Hopefully whoever has this car now has checked into the history on this age group of 911's. Other than that, the body shape wasnt bad, i did hate the headlights for these 911s tho. but they have kits that'll convert it back to the round headlights. anyways. just a heads up for anyone that likes this age group of porsche. same thing happened on the boxster's i think they had this same failure with the bearings all the way up to i want to say 04' maybe even up to 06' Other than those 'bad powerplant ' issues , porsches are great! My 911 is daily driver, it's 2011.

that car is at the end of its life. late 90's and early early 2000's have a crappily designed intermediate shaft bearing. a 911 in that era with 100k miles is on borrowed time. If you havent already, sell it.
