One of Germany’s finest automotive exports, Porsches are a symbol of expert German engineering with speed suited to the Autobahn. Since its founding in 1931, the brand has become known worldwide and has produced some genuine classics, like the iconic 911 which has gone on to be reinvented time and time again.
But classic status doesn’t grant immunity from the many afflictions that can lead a car to the scrapyard. Whether it’s damage or depreciation, if your Porsche has had its day, Scrap Cars For Cash can help you get a fair price for selling it as scrap or salvage.
Reasons Porsches Are Scrapped
Despite their suave appearance and lofty price tags, Porsches can end up scrapped for the exact same reasons that even the lowest of low-end motors might. Accidents can be exceptionally costly to repair on any car, but on expensive sports cars, the potential fees could be eye-watering. If your Porsche has been hit on the road, the best option might just be to scrap with Scrap Cars For Cash instead.
Wear and tear is another huge contributor to the scrapyard population around the country and naturally, this will affect older Porsches more than newer ones. Accumulating damage over time and depreciation of components can lead to worsening performance and even a major component failure. This can be a pain at the best of times, but should this happen right before an MOT is due, expect to have to make a big decision: pay to put it right, or sell it for scrap. We can help you maximise your profits from the latter.
Scrap Porsches Value
The scrap value of any car fluctuates from day to day based on the cost of scrap metal. We will always ensure you get the best deal possible in the current market, but the most significant factor taken into consideration when pricing up scrap Porsche quotes is the weight of the car. A Cayenne will initially be worth more than a 911, but further factors can and will be looked at to make a total valuation.
The vehicle’s age, mileage and overall condition all play a part in bumping up your Porsche’s scrap value. A smaller Porsche can surpass a bigger one in value if it’s in good condition with many salvageable parts still intact. Scrap Cars For Cash can also help you sell your car as Salvage and get you the best price for doing so.
