Let me ask all of our fans of this site this question. Is there really a market for exotic machinery that are, for all practical purposes, parts donors? Like this one… this is a very expensive, highly desirable, Porsche 911 GT3 that carried the Porsche designation of 997 during this time period. Let’s take a look to see if it really is worth going to all the trouble to recover parts… The listing is currently up on Gullwingsearch.com, and if you get the time, take a look at the site for yourself. According to the listing:
For Sale – Organ Donor – 2008 Porsche GT3 – Parts on the Hoof – Ran when parked. Slight mishap – as you can see much of the drivetrain is intact (we recommend that you visit to ascertain if these parts are what you need) As Is – Where is – $25k (can ship – anywhere – you pay crating & shipping) This GT3 can be seen in East Litchfield CT with advance notice.
So, is $25,000 a lot to ask for a parts donor car. Yes it has a certain pedigree, but these items can only be used for another Porsche 997, which severely limits the market potential. Or, it could be used as a potential project on any of those television build shows that seem to be everywhere these days. Take a look at the listing here, and tell me what you think.
