The high priced craze for Porsches has cooled some, but perhaps sellers don’t yet appreciate that fact. There are plenty of project cars for sale with lofty expectations. This 911T is listed here on eBay where it has been bid up over $15,000 with three days to go and reserve not met. It looks OK from this side but the other side has a bit missing. It has sat for many years and does not run. The floors are solid with minor surface rust. This Porsche was apparently damaged in an accident, the damaged quarter panel removed and the project abandoned.
The quarter panel was removed for an unknown reason, but apparently due to an accident. Is the substructure straight? The tire appears very close to the body. The seller didn’t provide a picture of the right side so there’s no view of panel fit and there’s no clue to how straight the body is. There is also no picture of the rear to get any idea of suspension damage. It would be interesting to know how badly this car is really damaged,
Also listed on eBay is this rusty green 1972 P911T. Bidding is over $22,000 with 6 days left and no reserve. The seller says the rust is not a as bad as it looks and that it was parked years ago. The floor pans look OK.
I guess we need to define “not as bad as it looks”. If it’s this rusty here, how bad is it likely to be in other places? What would it take to repair just the rust visible here?
Look at the beautiful interior of this 911T listed on eBay. Bidding is at $6,300 with no reserve and 8 days left. You could add a steering wheel and enjoy hours of pretending to drive your Porsche.
You’ll need to add a few bits beside the steering wheel, including engine and suspension, to get the full experience though. You’d also have to repair the serious collision damage to the right front. Do any of these look like a viable project? There have been several nice examples sold recently for about $60,000, like this 1973 sold on eBay. It had spent much of it’s life on a showroom floor and was restored. Another 911T Coupe sold on eBay for $55,000. If you can buy a nice 911T for $60,000 or less, do any of these projects make sense? Or are they just parts cars? Could they be completed, including purchase price, for less than $60,000?
