Real 934 into 934.5 on Ebay

Nearing the limits of the 930 project development this is a real nice example. It did start out as a 934 but has been upgraded, as so many originals were, into the later ( faster ) versions as they were subsequently developed at Porsche. The purists would say, not original, I say so what. The Ebay # is 260312484772

In the (optional ) tow vehicle parked at a vantage point of the track. Definitely a niche vehicle. However there are a increasing number of associate type race tracks springing up ( similar to Golf course clubs ) that are ideally suited for this type of car ownership if you do not happen to live near a sanctioning body race course.

Timing your turbo lag in corners just adds to the expertise required to drive one well. Maybe I will have my chance someday when I get my 934.5 wannabe on track. This one would probably cost more than I'd get selling my entire stable. Any thoughts what it will get on Ebay vs what they want for it?

Anybody interested in this car will likely just pay the asking price.

Real collector cars do well in bad times. It is like investing for the rich guys. They hold value better than stocks.

But it has to be a rare model.

I have never understood why most Porsche guys make such a big deal out of turbo lag (I am not picking on you JBL930, just making a statement about my own) I have driven cars as responsive as 427 Cobras to none responsive T-51R turboed Supras- either end of the spectrum was fun. I bet that car on Ebay runs like a rapped ape- look at the size of that hot housing- I bet it pulls like a freight train up top. I only can wish for now

I agree 930 gt-40r. That looks to be a split hot side as well , reason for dual waste gates.

Both cars did not meet reserve at Bonhams auction in Monterey (I was there, with paddle in hand). I think they maxed out at $430K or so for the yellow car and $275K or so for the red one. The red car is really, really a beater in it's current condition. The yellow car I've been watching for eight years (see here: http://www.pelicanparts.com/swapmeet_pics/Bruce-Jerry/Page1.htm). They want $500K for it. I think it's worth about 1/2 that. With the recent stock market corrections of nearly 50%, I expect to see similar corrections (or more) in this market.

We'll see, I'll keep watching it...

For us wannabe buyers of this good stuff your prediction of a possible 50% less of recent bid value sounds good to me. Now if I had just sold when the market was high ( 14200 ) finding the market bottom for the red one would be not as important.

The funny thing is that the consumer is always ahead of the ball game. I have watched general 930 prices drop non-stop since the day I bought mine in october 2006. Due to a general need amoung some to deny this at Porsche websites, I basically was flamed into not talking about it.

It is what it is. The world is deflating rapidly.

Wayne, Your right, from the photos it does not seem in cosmetically show condition, instead it was restored to a mid 80s 934.5 "race usable" configuration/condition ( the yellow 934 that got bid $155K more) as that was returned/restored closer to its 1976 original specification. Well all the better as it may discourage some from not using it on track and offer less keeping a expensive restoration cost in mind. According to the PR it was reconfigured to a mid 80s development by a notable shop and used on track with good results since completed. The car looks to have all the right stuff to make it function well. I hope he reads this forums "objective observations" if I get the bug to abandon my stuff and get one that is ready for track use.

If I do decide to try for the finished 934.5 on Ebay, anybody want my 934.5 project? It is pretty much original,as raced many years ago so has lots of vintage period stuff, however it needs current safety equipment to comply to current rules. A steal if you can complete it yourself . It has a fresh 3.4 twin plug, two Turbo motor With 500+ ( for longevity@1.0 bar) HP with a fresh 930 short bell housing trans / 935 clutch/ billet half shafts race c v joints etc. most everything new. I have another car to put the running gear in, if you just wanted the chassis. PM me for a further detailed list of upgraded running gear / chassis or additional photo's
