Porsche Restoration Considerations

Every Porsche restoration project is unique. Some can be more challenging than others. The condition and service history of your vehicle can have a significant impact on the time and cost of restoration.

Several factors can influence your Porsche restoration costs and budget:

  • the year, model, and condition of your Porsche
  • your restoration goals (customize, sell, show, exhibition, etc.)
  • availability of replacement parts vs. fabrication needs

Market Value Factors

Our team understands that a car’s market value is a factor in any restoration project. For example, restoration of mid-1980s Porsche 944 in fair to good condition might be equal to or higher than a car’s current market value.  These can also be true for models like the 968 and even some 911s – depending on the specific trim and configuration.

A model like the Porsche 930 or 964 may require similar levels of repair. However, because these models often have a higher market value, owners find it easier to make the investment in a restoration of the quality we provide.

Rare and vintage Porsche’s like the 356 Speedster and 550 Spyder are often restored for private collections, auctions, or museum placements. Even though their age and condition can result in higher restoration costs, a concourse quality restoration can increase the car’s overall value and desirability.

We also understand that market value is not the only factor. We’ve met a lot of Porsche owners through the years and know that other factors are also important. Those range from reclaiming a piece of family history to a deep appreciation for the classic art form these iconic performance vehicles represent. Our team is ready and able to help you accomplish all the goals you have for your Porsche restoration.

Paint and Customization

Paint and customizations are among the most common examples of non-stock restoration project goals. We use the best paint materials available on the market. Most restoration projects include matching the original Porsche’s factory color. However, if that’s not in keeping with your goals, we’ll use the same quality paint products but work to find the color that best suits the way you’d like your car to look.

If you’re looking for a different take on your classic Porsche, we also do custom restoration modification (restomod) work. We’ve got the skills to find or fabricate parts that will bring your vision to life. We can make custom changes like those shown in the before and after photo below – from bumpers to fenders, headlights to custom paint, and almost anything in between. Be sure and call us today so we can start planning your classic restomod.

Estimates for Porsche Restoration Costs

Please call our shop at 919-552-0333 between 9am and 5pm eastern time to schedule an appointment for us to look at your car.

During your visit, we’ll make a detailed assessment of your car based on what we can see without going through the disassembly process. We’ll estimate the effort related to:

  • auto body repair and replacement (dents, scratches, prior repair, etc.),
  • exterior and interior trim condition and replacement, and
  • engine and drivetrain condition.

We’ll send you an estimate that shows our best educated assessment about the parts and labor your Porsche restoration project will require. Throughout the restoration process, we’ll keep you informed about what we find and the options you have for how to handle anything unexpected.

If the car’s market value is the most significant factor in your decision on any Porsche restoration, you should let us know early in the estimating process. We will help you decide what restoration level would be most in line with your budget and expectations.

Porsche Restoration Levels

There are many reasons to restore your classic performance sports car. Even though money is always a factor, sometimes a Porsche has sentimental value that’s more important. Whether your goals are to get your car safely back on the road in style], enter a prestigious car show, or add it to a museum collection, we can help you choose the best restoration level.

We offer different restoration options for your Porsche that include:

  • Classic Porsche Collision Repair
  • Daily Driver Restoration
  • Show Quality Restoration
  • Concourse Restoration

When you bring your Porsche to our shop, we’ll help you find a way to meet your goals.
