The 930′s legacy was further enhanced by its buyers. In the late 70′s it was a sign of success to own a 930. Movie stars, Rock stars, Pro athletes were among the elite list of 930 owners. It was a who’s who list of owners, but its reputation was catching up with it almost as fast as the car itself. The volatile nature of the car had finally caught up with it, and with several lawsuits involving fatal accidents, Porsche had to first offer customer training for consumers who purchased a 930. By 1980, Porsche halted the import of 930′s to the US due to emissions requirements and safety altogether. For five long years, the US would see no new (Legal) 930′s. Then in 1986 the 930 came back until 1989 when the 964 replaced the 911.
