Andreas Gabriel’s new book, “Porsche 911 Turbo – Air Cooled Years 1975 – 1998“ has some excellent information on the number of ’80-88 930’s ordered with sunroofs. There are a surprising number of 930’s that were not ordered with optional sunroofs (esp. ROW)

The term “sunroof delete” is a misnomer except the British market were they were standard. As a general rule, more sunroofs were ordered for U.S. 930’s than ROW but that was also true for limited slip, etc. As to Porsche making 930’s standard with sunroofs and then deleting them later, this does not make sense from a cost or production standpoint. Why not just make some tubs with sunroofs and some without and then complete the car for ROW or U.S.? Stories abound for the 930 as no one has written a comprehensive book on the subject.
