They'll support you and help get you through any mechanical problems which might crop up with your car. If I had the cash to pony up for another Porsche, I would buy the nicest 993 twin turbo that I could afford...ya gotta love those air cooled motors!
Steve,
Thanks for the support! I know the Pelican guys are cats arse on here, and I wouldn't think to ask anyone else for their info/support.
As far as the 89 930 that I'm interested in goes, I spoke to the mechanic who has known this car for the last 10 years, and he says it is in excellent shape.
I know turbos are costlier to work on than a non turbo, but are they slightly more or significantly more? I just don't want to run into a HUGE bill for repairing a 930 that I intend to treat like a queen!!!

I guess now would be a great time to ask 930 owners what their repair bills have been like compared to a non turbo.
Thanks!
