Your Projects: The Most Unlucky Porsche Boxster Around

By Ed Higginbotham

Forum member AAZCD is one brave soul. They purchased this Porsche Boxster S sight unseen on an internet auction site. The listing warned of flood damage from Hurricane Harvey, no keys available with the car, and actually listed the car as a possible biohazard. After purchasing the car, AAZCD found out the car had actually been almost completely submerged. To put icing on the cake, it literally fell off the trailer when it was delivered, damaging the car further. Sit back and watch as AAZCD resurrects this Porsche from the deep.

Nope, just thinking about the water getting into any and every corrosion-sensitive area, I just can't. Hell, the frame's probably already rusting from the inside out. Rather build a car from scratch than take on something like that.

In reply to kb58 :

I grew up in the Northeast US and can understand your fear. I have sad memories of seeing cars rot away while they still drove great (my dad's Celica GT). Do you know how these cars are made? The entire body is galvanized, dipped in primer, and sealed. The only rust that I have heard of on the unibody of these is from collision damage that was poorly repaired. Frame??? Rust??? No. I don't consider myself an expert, but I have been ...intimate with these cars.
