As far as this being your first DE, you will be nervous enuff so bring the car you are more comfortable with, meaning the 944. The turbo is a handful to master and you don't need this extra danger when you are a track newby.
The car on the track is completely different than in an autox. You will find that the 911 or 930 will understeer heavily at low speeds like an autox and become neutral to tail happy at high speeds like track DE's. At least if it is set up half way decent.
Once you have a few DE days under your belt bring out the big guns (ie the Turbo 930).
Your instructor will let you know when you are ready to graduate levels. You will find that having an instructor is one of the great benefits of the DE days. Where else can you get free instruction for the price of a DE weekend?
Good luck bringing the wife and kids....boredom is gonna set in mid day and you don't need the nagging to add stress to your weekend.
