'86 930 buying advice please

I'm thinking about upgrading my '81 931 to an '86 930 but I have no idea where to begin to make sure it wont turn into a huge mistake.

Could any of you share with me what to look for as far as:
1. Trouble signs
2. How to test the car
3. Common issues
4. Average maintenance costs/overall cost of ownership

And/or any other useful information which would aid me to make an educated decision on the purchase of this car. (Exactly what you would look for if the car was for yourself).

I've always loved the look of the 930, and this particular one is such a great deal that I can't stop thinking about it, but at the same time, I'm not sure that I'm ready to enter the realm of the 911 Turbo.

Absolutely ANY words of wisdom will be much appreciated.

White '81 Porsche 924 Turbo - Sold but not forgotten
Red '87 Porsche 944 - Wish I had not sold it
