sticker in my gas tank filler says 89 octane is fine as long as no high speed driving. Factory owners Manual says the same for my 1979 930 turbo.
You should be fine with a stock engine on 91 octane. The US cars were designed for our crappy gas from the beginning.
Calling it a 930 sounds cooler than 911 turbo anyway. Every afficiando knows what a 930 is when you say it.....and if they dont that gives you a chance to explain it to them and talk about the car.
1979 930 Turbo....3.4L, 7.5to1 comp, SC cams, B&B intercooler, Snow Perf water/meth injection, Rarlyl8 headers, Garret GTX turbo, 36mm ported intakes, Innovate Auxbox/LM-1, custom Manually Adjustable wastegate housing (0.8-1.1bar),--running 0.7bar max
