Close, but not exactly... mine could be returned to stock by putting on the old parts and locating an original muffler, intercooler and turbo but I don't think that's the right course of action. The stock cars are fun but the built ones really make the most of this platform. As everyone knows, a few simple mods go a LONG way in the 930. That said, perhaps I should reach out to Tom P and see if he's interested in flipping my car and making a huge profit

Who knows, perhaps it would be worth my time and effort to return it to stock and trying to sell it for $50K plus but personally I think that would be taking this car backwards. I have invested a lot of time and money building this car and I believe it is perfect for what most buyers are looking for... a well sorted and strong running low mileage 930.

My hunch is that there just are not that many serious buyers out there today given the economic environment and I'm going to have to price it aggressively (which I believe I have) and wait for the right buyer to show up.

I'll keep everyone posted on how it goes and I appreciate everyone's thoughts, input and feedback.
i agree that your car has all the correct mods and frankly...what i think most potential buyers would want!

i was merely pointing out that quality dealers seem to place a higher value/premium on the 930 than we do on this web-site. i personally tend to be hard on my own cars and under value them where a dealer might say wow...perfect car, as new, you won't find better...and ask and get considerably more money than i would.

your car looks nice and i do hope we see these awesome machines make it past the $50k mark with some regularity soon!

i am painfully aware that there can be a HUGE difference in a $25k 930 and a $40k 930.

good luck!!
