Martin at JamSaab is interested.
Cat 'B' I think it was said.
I am in the trade so to speak, i buy and (ideally) sell older Porsche's, do not deal with cat a or b cars but my vague understanding is that an a will get recycled/crushed. I believe you can buy parts from a b or possibly buy the car but it cannot be registered back on the road iunder any circumstances. I do hope this car can be put to some good use. such a shame.
However i believe newer/updated legislation is coming in soon. Not sure what the changes will be.
Insurance company should happily release the details of where the car is if asked. the OP should get the opportunity to buy it back - unsure of how this works with classics exactly. My recent experience is some clown ploughed into the back of a mint 986 3.2s last year. written off as cat d. the Porsche estimate to reapir was some £3,500.00+ labour i believe) insurance paid out full value 9k. I went over the car carefully myself knowing it hadn't been hit that hard and in the end i bought the car back for £2350.00 from ins co. repaired it using s/h Porsche parts - bumper and rear bumper bar (alloy box section that bolts onto the end of the chassis rails), inner arch liners and some specific panel fixings and a new badge for under a grand painted and repaired. car owed me £3300.00 even as cat d sold on for 7k in a week. My 9-3 Aero hit up the arse just before Christmas, written off cat d as parts unavailable new, paid out £1000.00. bought back for £50.00, yes, that's right £50.00 bought the parts s/h to fix it £70.00 and must get the bumper painted and fitted!
New rear MINTEX disks and pads go on this afternoon!
