1984 Porsche 930 Roller ++ VALUE

Why leave the car in half-baked performance condition when the ways and means to build the car as it was meant to be are readily available? That is vehicular neglect and abuse right there.

Yes in the context of their day. For their time there was no finer sports car in the world.

To me drive a 79 930 to experience 1979 and porsche as it was. History. Historically correct.

Drive a 86 959 to experience 1986 and porsche as it was. History. Historically correct.

Drive a 2018 918 to experience 2018 and porsche as it was. History. Historically correct.

That place in time.

You see once you go modifying you forever destroy what it was and was meant. 1979,1989,1999,2019..

Do you really want a 1977 to drive just like a 2019?


Besides the bigger fact you are destroying porsche history.
