I wish I could say the same, but I just bypassed all the in-between stuff after my first Porsche - a '73 911T - telling myself than my next one would be a 930. Took me 20+ years later and a bunch of foolishness messing around with MG's...trying to coax another 10hp out of the tractor engines that were put in them.

About the 'white faced screaming like a little girl' passengers: That was me first time out. Admittedly I don't scream or pee my pants anymore...what I feel now is more sexual. It's amazing how one can become at ease behind the wheel of a 930 over time. At worst, I catch myself white-knuckling the steering wheel sometimes with a perceived rictus of pain across my smiling lips. Life is good.

Would I own a NA 911 again? Sure, but I don't need it and would probably always be searching for the turbo kick that's missing. Besides, I'll need the money to combat all the bad things said about the 930's.
Mark H. 1987 930, GP White, Wevo shifter, Borla exhaust, stock everything else. The result of a massive Pelicanite good will fire recovery effort. Truely an open book, ready for the slippery slopes to modification.
