My 930 left the Factory as a hardtop but along the way one of the previous owners converted it to a Cab,

Not sure if it is with all the cabs but my car has a strengthened chassis with 2 lateral plates either side of the undercarriage running from the rear wheel arches to near underneath the doors, this was/is required in Australia for safety and needs to have accompanying engineers certificate in order to register the car for road use.

when i first saw them i thought oh crap there's been some major damage but then i read the engineers report,

So the original question of stability

-do all 930's have a strengthened chassis?? to compensate for the deletion of steel roof?

with/without roof what are (factory) weights?

Or am i just unlucky carrying around an extre 50000000 pounds of weight?

Or is the strengthening about the same weight as what the roof would have been?

Weight is such an important factor in performance,
wheels that dont rub, handbrakes that dont stick, fat ex girlfriends all can bring down performance and mood
