From what I have been told the owner was going through a restoration process on the car, but he has passed, and now his collection is being sold as is...

Porsche 930 Front 295x260 Stolen Porsche 930 Found After 23 Years U.S.
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers assigned to the Outbound Enforcement Team (OET) at the Los Angeles/Long Beach Seaport seized a 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo that was reported stolen in Las Vegas, Nevada nearly 23 years ago.

CBP officers discovered the vehicle after targeting and examining a container scheduled to be exported to the Netherlands. While querying the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) information in law enforcement databases, CBP officers discovered that the vehicle was reported stolen on November 24, 1988.

CBP officers contacted state authorities who confirmed that the stolen record for the 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo was still active. On October 25, 2011 the vehicle was seized and released to those authorities for return to the insurance company who currently owns the title.

"CBP maintains an aggressive approach in detecting and intercepting shipments containing stolen cargo heading overseas," said Todd C. Owen, CBP Director of Field Operations in Los Angeles. "This seizure is a prime example of how CBP's outbound team combines intelligence, expertise and strategic targeting to recover stolen vehicles."

The seized vehicle's manifest was undervalued at $12,552 whereas CBP import specialists estimated the value of this collector's edition without its engine as approximately $27,552.

.................................................. ...............Seems to me it should be worth at least $30K+ based upon this article. Overseas buyers have upped the ante by a lot ( on the earlier 76-79 930's) in the last few years.
