:idea: Maybe worth getting a smart repairer like Chips Away to give you a quote. Being mobile, they'll come to you.
I know absolutely nothing about bodywork and repairs, but do you think this is something that can be repaired to a professional standard without replacing the affected parts?
It will cost you nothing to get their opinion. If they cannot do it, then they may be able recommended a Porsche standard bodyshop.

Bloody cat - you were so worried about it you hit your car

Next time, engage launch control and speed off, then you will miss the wall but the cat might not make it !

I had a brilliant smart repair done on the 992 this year I'll see if I can find before and after pics

£400 all in and I probably could have done that more efficiently had I known but still cheaper than excess and no claim

Sorry can’t find afters but to say it is faultless from my point of view says it all

Needs to be done quick though before plastic memory gets stuck in that position

I'm hoping there won't be a next time :D

Your damage is certainly more extensive than mine, so I'm hopeful it can be repaired as opposed to all new parts.

It was in some posh converted church hotel thingy and it was probably somebody's low level headstone thing I hit I was too busy concentrating on not hitting the Bentley whose owner I had just been speaking to.

I was already in a bad mood because the car had been parked under a tree all night and it was covered in bird shite - even though it is full ceramic coated I still wanted to get it off as the car was spotless before that and it was only the second day of my NC500 trip !

The rest of the car holiday pics were of the rear of the car, which is the best angle of the car anyway

Shall we run a book on how much to repair?

Porsche.jpg
I'd go in at over 2K for official repair which means replacement of the parts
I reckon you could get that done with a repair though..
Good luck with it.
