Make sure you do a leak down test by a qualified mechanic. 930 is very susceptible to broken engine studs due to high temps, corrosion and maybe some previous owners. VERY EXPENSIVE!!!

Make sure yours has the Carrera tensioners upgrade. Expensive and is a must.
Brakes - worn disks, leaking calipers, etc....expensive

These cars are GREAT cars....they require a DIY and a lot of self-instruction in order to fully enjoy your car (and save some bucks $$$)

For me, the key is on the initial inspection. These cars are a piece of heaven but they can turn into a nightmare if you make some wrong decisions.

The feeling of driving a 930 is like no other sports car....test drive and find a good mechanic before the final decision is made.
