I own a 2003 911 Targa and was caught in a debris storm in the middle of Kansas a couple of months ago my 911 received a lot of damage from flying debris and even "tumbleweeds". I have talked to friends who also own Porsche's about repainting vs not repainting my car. Some say definately do not repaint it while others say do repaint it. I would like to know if there is anyone in the Central Indiana Region that I should discuss this with. I've been a CIRPCA member since last September however have not been to any of the events to date. I sure do hope to do so once my baby is looking good again.

Thanks,

Hi Dick.

I didn’t see any answers to your question.  I own a ’94 911 964 cab.  Everything on it is original.  I just had it appraised not long ago.  I think that the answer to the question of original versus updated is it depends.  For it to pay financially to keep it original you’d have to keep it quite a while.  I bought my 964 eleven years ago because it was it great shape to begin with. I think that it would take another ten years to really pay off when I do sale it. If I wanted to invest the money in a new paint job I think that I would.  I think a future buyer in the next ten to fifteen years would like a fresh look more than originality.  I think as the owner, I would like to look at a fresher body when I wax it.  But then if you do repaint it you run the risk of another storm or just driving behind a few semis.

 To me, it really boils down to how long you’re going to keep it and how you feel about the current look.  I hope this helps. You could talk to one the sales people at Tom Wood.

 Good luck.  With spring just around the corner, try a few events and talk to other members.
