I have been shopping for an older porsche for a fun car and maybe some track days. Been looking at cars and bids. And bring a trailer. I have made some bids.. but will not bid full retail price because I would be bidding blind. Getting a pre purchase inspection makes sense.... but how many inspections would I want to pay for not knowing if I can buy a car for a reasonable price. ?? Plus you can buy a car with hidden damage or a bad porsche engine fault. Pay 30 k for a car and in a couple weeks it needs a 18 thousand dollar engine repair. So anyone here buy an auction car ?? How did it work out for you. Would you do it again ??
