Thinking about a early 930 but..

ive got no experience with this cars, the car im looking for is a 77 with 130000mls. Ive got this informations from the owner.

What do you think about ??


Exceptional 1977 Porsche Turbo. this is the 3.0 liter engine that was only available for two years. It's been totally upgraded with Porsche chain tensioner upgrade, new boost spring, Porsche intercooler, new hybrid turbo, custom exhaust, 3.8 tail, new clutch and much more. The interior has a new dash and headliner. The seat leather as you can see is excellent and still supple.New air conditioning compressor and new CD, radio and external changer with new upgraded speakers add to the comfort . I have service records on the car back to it's first year of 1977. This car has always been well treated and cared for by the best. Original Paint is very good and so dark that many people think the car is black until they get a good look at it's rich color. Original tail and radio also available if buyer has an interest. This car has never been tracked to my knowledge and drives very very well.

the guy hade made a service at his mechanic, wrote this:


All lubrication and oil change done. Tires worn, fronts are cupped on inner(normal)rears have aprox 7/10k left.Several slight oil leaks,cam chain covers,cyl 5/6 liners to case,trans shift shaft seal,oil pump for turbo,These may improve with use or not.Chemically washed down and inspected steering and suspension.Rear shocks seeping,but still damping effectively.Fronts a little weak, but still okay.Steering components are okay.Interior in good shape. Center vent missing.Hood struts weak.Washer system weak.Left nozzel is plugged shut, we cleaned right side.Overall, it is way above average for a thirty year old 930.Degreased engine and repacked wheel bearings and races. It cost $450.00 to get the work done

Thats all.
I would be very glad for any comments
Thanks
Tom

Tom,

I second....How mucH?? When you say you have no experience with these cars..Dont you have (5) 911 series cars alteady? The car isnt much different except the intake system Turbo etc. Find out what a hybrid turbo is? how does the car look to you aesthetically? Got a picture?

Sounds like a great buy if there is no rust, a clean title, no previous accident damage & good compression/leakdown.

All the work you've listed is cosmetic....get a compression and leakdown test...

$20,000 could be a good buy...then again.....

Thanks,
its right ive got 5 911, but im not in the market for 930 and the costs for service and parts. Most of the 930 parts are extremly expensive i heard.

On the other side, there are a lot of offers with 60-70 miles for less then 30.000.

It looks like, the 930 isnt very desireable in the U.S.A

Unfortunately ive got no pictures available, but as you know the all look like garage queens from 10ft away

Thanks to get an idea
Tom

That seems a great car and if you have the cash it would be silly not to buy it. Remember that the 3.0 930's are lighter than the 3.3's and that the engine is not located further back like the 3.3. Basically they are a special car.

Yeep thats the reason why im asking, the 930 3.0 is , for me, more sophisticated than a 2.7 Rs, you dont read a lot about them, they are are not really expensive, but if you ever have driven them you wont forget. These cars are very special, like a ride on a rocket, but as i heard, they maybe can bring you down to earth. Its one thing to buy, but another thing to keep them well.
Thanks for your appointments, excuse me please for the language and the spell. Its great to be a member of this community.
Thank you very much
Tom,sure to buy one

Ascertain the state of the expensive mechanicals, such as internal engine condition. You might spend $20k to buy the car, but if the engine is on it's way out, you may be aup for another $10-15k on a rebuild. Compression and leakdown is a MUST when it comes to these cars, otherwise you could potentially be up for serious dollars!
