Despite the difference of opinion in value, I think they are purchased for lower, maybe not $25k, but remember, when I wrote that, there were no pictures (black is desireable) and this car still has several thousand $ of work minimum on the clutch and engine R&R. I spent $1500 rebuilding my 930 calipers. Would you really only do one, seems like you need to do four as braking is not an area to compromise. Might as well add pads ~ $300 and maybe new rotors $1000 up to $2000 if they are the full floating type up front (though unlikely given the year). Also, presumably it does not come with the factory intercooler.

The engine bay shots don't look so clean, either? Maybe it is indicative of maintenance efforts.

These cars sit for months in the classifieds often without progress towards a sale. I believe there is a large delta between the asking price and the transaction price. Here are some examples:

I bet the transaction price is a good $10k below asking. Here's a comparable one, albeit without the factory fuchs (+$2500 if you like stock):
For Sale 1986 911 Turbo - 39,000 miles

This one has $20k in the engine, asking $49.5k:
87 930 Turbo, EFI

slant nose 930 $26.5k asking, not perfect:
1987 930 Slant Nose

Higher mileage - But it now...$24.5k

Data point: $26k, rebuilt engine and trans:
1987 930 Turbo Coupe
for +$6k could have repainted the exterior and had brand new car

$35k, asking. Who knows if it sold?
87' 930 Turbo - Fine Condition

Ultimately, I wish you luck and am confident you'll enjoy your car. These are awesome, timeless vehicles.
