    she's well dead, the whole front end would require cutting and welding a new front on and if the numbers don't match then she is worth nothing. Was such a great car, immaculate and damn did it go with all the engine mods. Well time to look for another one........once the wrist mends from breaking the steering wheel

    Luke are you going to buy it from the wreckers and part out the gearbox and engine? You had the G50 in it right? Any Limited slip diff and was it running the 3.2 or 3.6?

    Kinda thinking about maybe changing to a G50 in mine when we do some upgrades we were talking about the other day so might be interested then in the gearbox.

    At least you didn't suffer any major injuries Luke, and you have a new toy to play with

    Umm I would assume the fact that it's buckled and no longer flat!

    Yeah underbody shot shows the entire front is bent down so would definately need a front cut. The Amarok is fun but not fun enough to warrant not getting another Porsche

    Sorry about the news Volksee. I feel your pain mate. I'm new to the world of Porsche ownership and I completely agree with you about the fun factor. There's definately something special about Porsche's regardless of new or old. Hope you get yourself into another Porsche very soon. Wishing you happy shopping mate. I'm already eyeing on a 911 already.
