If the car is a 1983, then we do know it must be grey-market since Porsche did not sell the 930 between 1980-85 in the US. Looking also inside the drivers door panel(where you pop the hood release, you would also find a US EPA sticker stating conformance to the regulations and lower you would find included in the mfgs sticker the claim:" This vehicle conforms to all applicable federal motor vehicle safety and bumper standards in effect to the date of manufacture shown".

It may have been bought grey-market, shipped here and never federalized, then driven and parked.

Your best bet may be to find an international buyer(such as Canada or Europe), and be done with it, for your greatest return on investment. Trying now to federalize a 31 year old grey-market car could become a financial abyss.
