Robbie,

I got my car inspected by Haggerty Insurance. They gave me a $37,000 policy. My 930 is fully rebuilt with under 1000 miles on the engine and transmission. I did drop a lot of money in it real quick but it was worth it.

As far as a lot less options. I have all the options that a 88 930 has. The only difference is, is that my car is lighter, and has smaller brakes. Oh I don't have electric locks.

Engine wise, I don't have a lot of the sensors and my cold start valve is a lot better as far as control.

Exhaust wise, I don't have a catalytic converter or o2 sensor.

The choice for me when I went looking for a 930 was to buy a nice used one for around $25000 US, and the ones I was looking at had mileage around 60,000.

Then this 77 came along. It needed a full interior redo and ended up with a full engine rebuild. I have the receipt for the rebuild of the 930 trans. and it is the tightest gear box out of the three 911 that I have owned.

Along with a few modifications to the suspension and repairs to the frame from stress and a new tires and struts and sway and control bushings...the car is a new fast, fun, reliable car that I ended up spending the amount that I would have spent on a OK 80's 930.

I hope this helped.

Under stand that they only made around 2000 930's in 77. The exact number I don't remember, I think it's more like 1700. I'll look it up and post the link.

So IMO, very limited amount made. Good condition car. Very tweekable.... K27, intercool. Lower compression, better boost. Short stroke 3.0 instead of the 3.3. Parts for the 3.0, like fuel pumps and other things are the same as the 3.0 SC. A lot cheaper.

Good luck.

Robert
