I don’t know why I’m surprised to see so many Porsches pop up as insurance losses.  This one has already crossed $52,000 in bidding which is fair market value.  Fix it up and you’ll always be saddled with a salvage title and salt water rusting the car from places you’ll never see until it’s too late.  Still they are straight forward, easy to work take apart and put back together and the values are going up, up, up.
