911 conversion? I have to admit that I was expecting a bit more than what looks to be a standard body kit.

did you look at the ebay listing for the twunt ?

it's a Cat C as well.


which under UK insurance terms means it's been the subject of a recorded accident/claim/payout against the VIN number

Cat A is for burn outs and gutted vehicles. Only value is in the baled weight at a metal recyclers.

Cat B is where the vehicle is no longer safe to put back on the road and must be broken or crushed. These can only be sold to registered dismantlers with an EPA waste licence. They are actually sold as parts and are no longer considered as a vehicle. There is no economic consideration involved, purely a safety one. Vehicles that have been flooded are normally written off as a cat B.

Cat C is where the car is repairable but is not economic to do so. Think older cars and or ones where the chassis needs jigging.

Cat D is where the vehicle is repairable and would be economic to do so (cost of salvage + cost of repairs < Pre accident value) but the insurance company has decided not to repair the vehicle. This could be due to excessive storage or recovery costs, etc.

Well, it may not look like a 911, but it sure looks like a 987. Not bad for a busted 2003 Boxster.

I always think these conversions are a bit "head heavy", somehow doesn't flow with the rest of the car...

This car is awful, the engine is knocking, suspect IMS or failing cam-chain tensioner too. I emailed him and he claimed it needed a new tensioner, 10 min job apparently....What a joker.
