Another hearsay/ term that I hate which is continually repeated is "sunroof delete option." How could that be, you either ordered a car and specified the optional sunroof, or you didn't... kinda light metallic paint, you paid extra for that as an option.

Ok, sorry to go off topic.. back to the regularly scheduled program!
I remember very clearly when the 1978 930 came out, I remember going to the dealer and drooling and reading about them and talking with my friends about them, it was our dream car. The ads said the brakes were patterned off of or inspired by or like the 917 and in 1978 people just called them "brakes from a 917" So that myth was started way before Ferrari chat or the internet.

It gets frustrating keeping facts straight around these cars because they are so myth inspiring and the 1970's Porsche went from the "little car that could" to dominating all and the 930 was part of that.
