Personally, I'd go with the 993TT if I had the choice, but only because it'd also be my daily driver and I'd like the more civil comfortable ride of the 993TT compared to the earlier car. The TT can also be modded up to some serious HP too

I guess it depends on what you plan to do with the car and how much they cost.

Personally for me it's a no-brainer. I'd take a 550HP 930 with a 6spd over just about any car on the planet.

I have a 930 fairly similar to that one (except 4 speed) and used to have a 1994 3.6 turbo which is fairly similar (except 2 wheel drive) to the 993TT.

Both cars have great looks and style so on that issue they are a tie.

If you are using it as a daily driver then the clear choice is the 993TT. Comfort is more important than speed.

However, if speed and weight are more important, clearly the 930 is in an entirely different league than the 993TT. The 993TT will never be as light and agile as a well tuned 930. The 993TT will lose to many cars on the street today. The 930 will not.

If you can appreciate a car that is stock buy the 993TT (Porsche does great work). If you feel like you might modify it at some point just buy the already done 930.

Don't let cost be too much of a determing factor in your decision. Please let us know what they cost so we can keep up with the market (and see how much we have lost on our modified cars). But don't let cost make your decision. This is a silly purchase no matter how you look at it. Don't over think it. Go with your gut.

Better yet buy them both. Drive the 993TT when you want comfort and class. Drive the 930 when you want the baddest car around.

Just my .02.

That 930 is a MONSTER...buy it!!!!

Weight, or lack of, is what I like here. That 930 must weigh 800lbs. less than the 993 TT. Combine that with those massive HP numbers and it is in a different league. You will have to get BIG numbers out of the 993TT to run with that 930.

My choice would be the 930 as well. Which 6-speed does it have?

Guess I've got to go with the consensus here.. 930 all the way!!!

I mean the 993TT is cool, more livable on the street etc.. but hey, when you're buying a car like that, spending the kinda money that either will cost.. personally, I'd prefer something that's gonna get my "wood" on just by turning the key! I think the 930 would do that!

Now on another note.. that 930 appears to be a Euro car.. and that photo is a little hazy/grainy... you wouldn't be just posting up to get us Turbo-types all hot & bothered would ya?

I'd have to admit, that 930 would be an awesome track whore

It's got that look that someone so very well put it in another thread - "If you look at me like that again, I'll smash your face in!". It's just BAD @SS!!!

UNLESS the car is going to be your only driver, the 930 is the pick. NO question whatsoever.

I love the 993, but I really would choose THAT 930 in this case.

I think Better Bodies has those. They're the 934 style spoilers, right?

I myself prefer the RUF CTR style bumpers

The one shown above is similar to the 934 front bumpers sold by better bodies but not the same. The center cooling cut-out is much larger on the picture above and the two side flanking openings are not present on the better bodies, nor are the lights.

That 930 sounds mean. I would take the 930 unless you want to be comfortable, then the twin
