"This is a simple, fun project for any Porsche Enthusiast - feel free to come by and check it out yourself. "

But we can make a lot more money selling it as is?

Check out LA Dismantler's own website, "project car" section (vs. the Ebay ad): not one straight panel! Looks like a really bad day at the track. Looks like they were cannibalizing from other cars with some quick and dirty paint?

Somehow it does not look right. A fake Spyder?

Totally looks off. Where is the spoiler? Speed humps look like they go all the way to the back. Could be a good project though, bet you could get it for a lot less than advertised.

Not a fake spyder, in particular they note the aluminum doors etc... take a look around... That thing was a track rat, rode hard and put up wet as they say. I guarantee that thing did a loop-de-loop and hit a wall pretty hard at the track. Lots of upgraded suspension components, ultralight wheels with slicks, pretty sure that is a GT3 Cup car sitting in front of it in the pictures... all tell tale sign of "this was not a street car".

Not to say it is not a deal but I would reckon it needs $5K++ to put it right and probably more then that to do it properly, yet along put it back to stock if that is what you want acquiring wheels, correct suspension pieces etc.

Edit to add that I would also argue that LA dismantlers didn't pull anything off that wasn't broken, and more then likely pulled some of the common bits out of their stash to make the damage seem not quite as bad. Wouldn't doubt they had some body and paint work done, after all they do seem to have a new bumper for it... I would suspect missing bits unique to the Spyder in the suspect areas are missing because they don;t have anything on the shelf to replace them with.

I could be wrong though.

Yeah you beat me to it... but more or less as I suspected... from their project car section...
