You Can Buy A Porsche 918 Spyder For $78,000

Okay, maybe this Porsche hypercar is a little bit dented, but it’s still a genuine 918 Spyder.

With only 918 examples produced, Porsche’s current halo car is a tease on the eye to begin with, and every piece destroyed gets rarer and rarer. Nevertheless, this particular example still has a chance – hence the current ($78,500) bid – but the repairs for it come costly (as you’d probably expect).

Looking at the 918’s parts pricelist that we recently shared, the transmission alone costs almost as much as this salvageable machine, while the money required by a new engine could buy you a pretty nice Ferrari instead. Nevertheless, Copart – the company handling the sale – says the repair estimates for the Porsche are around $600,000.

Considering a new one comes with a starting price of $845,000, with many examples exceeding the $1,000,000 mark, this could be a good deal; although it’s not mentioned whether the bill price for the repairs includes the engine and transmission fixing.

On the up side, the car has only 92 miles (148 km) on the clock – if that matters – although it was not verified.
