My personal experience: I buy my first 911 in 1999/2000 it was '71 911T coupe. I was always fall in love in classic 911. Everything produce after 1973 was over design, over weight etc. Even more difficult was accept US version with huge bumper rubber and rear spoiler. But 930 is like other world. Everything what was over design in 911 is perfect in 930 design.
So first :930 is perfect balance in design and look

Till month ago when I bought my first 930 it was only nice look Porsche- nothing else.
I expected that it will be faster, more power full, agresive.
But first experience change all my opinion about Porsche cars! It is best Porsche ever drive. With this power all over RPM , turbo lag,sound and unexpected silence. (I was so suprise that 930 is much more quiet than my 911S!)
Just perfect car. Of course luck of ABS,PSM or anything like that give you just real super car experience that you culdn't get from any new 997 cars.
930 is just like it Porsche should be. It is real racing car for street use.
So now I have problem to share my emotion between classic 911S and 930 but I think both cars with the same origin but develop in different direction can give exaiting experience to driver.
For me 930 is underrate but it will change. I remember what it was with 911S form 1969-1973 or better with 911 RS - in 1999 you could find RS for 50-70 T$ today you know the prices... The same will be with 930 , even now I see what is going on in Europe last 3-4 months . In last year it was several 930 to buy for 22-29 TEuro most expensive reach 50-55 TEuro, today you find not too much cars under 30 TEuro but average is going to be 40 TEuro. Best cars asking price going even up.
So looks that market for 930 will be growing up.
Why still 930 is underrating is also coming from lack of knowlage what exactly this car is. Like me till first drive it was just wider and more power full 911 but is is much more....
