Even with all-wheel-drive, the 887-horsepower Porsche 918 Spyder is a lot to handle. Apparently, too much to handle for the former owner of car #830, who wrecked it after putting just 92 miles on the odometer. Now, #830 has turned up at a salvage auction in Long Island, with bidding up to $100,000 at the time of writing.
Normally, a car this destroyed would be declared a total loss and meet its untimely demise at the crusher, but limited-edition hypercars are a bit of a different story. Recall, the Ferrari Enzo that was restored by Ferrari after it was literally ripped in half in a California crash. That car recently sold for $1.76 million.
If you have the money and patience, Porsche will likely be willing to bring this car back to its showroom-fresh state. It might cost you as much, if not more, than buying a working 918, but you’d have a car with a unique history.
