Last week’s 911 Turbo Cabriolet was a quick lesson on how not to sell a car. Today I wanted to have another refresher, but this time on how not to buy a car.
This 2014 Porsche 911 GT3 seems enticing enough. Sapphire Blue Metallic, 16,000 miles, and under $100,000. Clearly a catch here. Photos are average, and the seller says the there was a “minor bumper accident”. Well, that is unfortunate, but maybe it was just a parking lot accident? After all, these are expensive body parts and some damage could trigger some replacement parts. Oh how I wish that was the case with this one. Just wait until you see what “minor” really is.

This is why you always Google the VIN. Apparently “minor” damage is the front end ripped off, along with the rear bumper and wing completely mangled. Somehow the scratches all over the rest of the body, including the roof panel. I know “minor” is a subjective word, but in my mind, that is a little more than a “minor bumper accident”. It all makes sense as to why this seller was very light on the information, and posted up some totally random photos. Again, this is always why you Google the VIN.
The $98,250 price is bonkers considering how much damage this car took. Especially since $10,000 more buys you a clean example with less miles. I don’t think we need to go any further here.
