I used a pry bar to open my mangled driver's door so I could open the frunk to remove my luggage.
Man, I'm so sorry to hear about your accident, but glad you're okay. You've put a lot of heart and soul into this car. Are you going to fight to keep it and have it repaired?
2002 Porsche 996 Carrera - bare bones basic, but still a blast to drive! Heck, I don't even have PSM on it. Ha!

Thanks. I would like to repair it if possible. I'll see what the insurance company says. I have a body shop that I trust and have worked with before. I'll get their input and proceed from there once I have all the information. I don't care about resale value as I was hoping that this car would outlive me.
There was no damage at all to any systems as there was no impact whatsoever. It just nudged my car slightly but the extended lugs on the truck tore through the metal like paper in a shredder.

Somebody brought a 2006 Cayenne S to autocross. Hmm, maybe next time I leave the 996tt at home.
