FOR SALE: Lightly Used Porsche 918 Spyder, only 92 Miles

The 887-horsepower Porsche 918 Spyder is a lot to handle. 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. Normally, a car this destroyed would be declared a total loss and meet its demise at the crusher, but limited-edition hypercars are a different story.
Porsche might be willing to bring this car back to its showroom-fresh condition. It might cost you as much, if not more, than buying a working 918, but you'd have a car with a unique history.

Alleged Porsche replacement prices are a thing to behold. A factory 918 engine costs over $200,000 and a new transmission costs nearly $70,000. If those prices are accurate, fixing this 918 requires a big wallet and bravery.
