Let me see your 930's

I am researching 930's as I will be ready to purchase when I get back from Europe (2 years(ish).

I find that I am growing less fond of the front and rear bumper details, they seem a little fussy to me.

I would like to see what people have done to change the OEM front and rear bumpers.

Thanks all!!!

You may find a nice one over there (non sunroof ) and just ship it back with you stuff.
Get a 78 or 79... they are great years! although I am bias..
I rather like the euro bumpers.. I HATE the US set up ..far to chunky.. but the euro look fine!

Or you could find a 91 or 92, the bumpers are much cleaner...

Here is mine.

Thanks Eric. Yours is damn sweet too. Mine was freaking scarey fast when I got it with only 33K on the clock. I dial back the performance a lot to make it more friendly on the street.

I would love to do a 965 91-92 but they seem to go for a lot more than the 930's. Depending how money goes in Europe I we will see.

I want to do some mild mods to get into the 400-450HP range, I think that will quench my speed needs

I feel like I have posted this a million times lately but you asked so here it is.....LOL!

My baby!

77 Euro 930.

Front end is a Better Bodies Motorsport GT2 front end. As I recall I paid around 800 for it.

Heres the rear bumper...

The rear bumper is from GT Racing and is their RSR rear bumper. It does not come with the 3" vents in it. I did that to help deal with turbo heat scorching the paint on my bumper.

That looks to be the old RUF BTR front end.

I will be changing the look of my front end at some point, and I think I will go with a '74 RSR look from GT racing.



The first pic is my current look, which is the 935 DP add-on valence.

I want to remove all my bumper lights, and front headlight washer motor and put on this 6 lb. front bumper. That would save at least 50 lbs.



If you start with a 930 and go with lightweight front and rear bumpers, you are dropping 80-90 lbs. I also will most likely go with a fiberglass hood and maybe the front fenders if the other parts go well. That would put my car at 2,470 lbs with a full tank of gas. Thrown in some lightweight seats, odyssey battery, remove a/c......
