Easy all you need to do to that car is.
Gut the engine bay, get rid of the inner fenders, move the firewall back a little, rebuild the front suspension, reinforce the front sub frame, reinforce the floor of the passenger compartment so it don't twist, tub the rear inner fenders a little, replace the rear end with a shorten up 9 inch and finally drop in a 454 with a 700r4 transmission.

See simple.

I dunno, making that lawn ornament look and run like an official royal ride is likely to more costly than a new car, even with Apple Family garage skillz.

It is answered right in the comic. She needs the car "for travel" because "by having a car is shows I am more like every pony else." So a lot of it is the visual aspect.

But also this series has shown that character don't use magic beyond picking things up once in awhile. Teleportation has never been shown. They've used trains, cars, etc. :)

You might think that Twilight doesn't need a car because she can fly and teleport, but that brings into question how fast she can fly and how many times / how long of a distance she can teleport. If she has to travel a lot, she might not make it under her own power, or she would suffer actual wear-and-tear injuries after doing this enough, or at least be so exhausted and sweaty upon arrival that it makes her look undignified. "Why didn't you just take a car? What are you, a peasant?"

Also, given her sedentary lifestyle, she may just not be physically fit enough to do that.

A car would save a whole lot of energy and probably also her reputation. Smart move, Twiggle.
