The 930 every bulge and spoiler was designed for a performance reason. Beauty follows function is well represented in the 930. They are good looking also. Properly put together a 930 is still a great car by most standards. Muscle cars were mosly added on to designs originally developed as passenger cars. The 930 is something else.
I get what you are saying but I still think that the 930 is fully developed and mature. The analogy to muscle cars is simply that they represent a period of time and a certain technology, but that is all at this point. They are about nostalgia.

Any good mechanic with an EVO could probably find a way to put the hurt on the average 930. Most of us are not even close to having a factory spec 930, which is what you are talking about. It would cost so much money to get there and would destroy the actual value of the car in the mind of most vintage Porsche buyers.

I still would rather own a 930 than a Vette. My dreams are about driving a 935 on the street, not having a new GM car.
