That's why the 930 left the USA in 1980, could not meet 50 state emissions..
The current market is not obsessive about ROW vs. US..........but if anything, ROW cars are slightly favoured in 3.0 as well as 3.3, in Europe as well as the US.

The 78 930 is viewed as a part of the 3.3 family, rather than a limited production car within its own model year.
The 78 930 is not so distinctively different from from later 930`s, as is the case with 75-77 cars.
Floating rotors (and the emmisions issue in the US) make 78`s + 79`s attractive among the 3.3`s though.
