Copy that. Seems a waste. Where is my Gran Patron Burdeos Anejo Tequila. I can't watch this anymore.

Two types of people that own PORSCHE'S; Those that should and those that definitely should not!

The way I see it, a 1979 930 with 38 miles has only one use and it's in a museum. JMHO.

I agree with 125shifter.

IF all of the above is real (i.e 1978 930 with 38 miles...) = a museum piece.

I would say that out of the entire car, the engine is probably the ONLY component that - after the proper inspection and cranking sequence - MIGHT run. The rest of the car will be unsafe to operate unless fully refurbished.

Oh, you might be able to hear the radio and horn too.

Seriously, have it checked, refurbished all rubber (brake, fuel, oil lines, seals...) and drive it!!!!!!!!!!

There are many, many other 930's out there to drive. This one is a time capsule for correctness for restorations.

I like to drive my cars and believe in driving them too, but I don't have a 38 mile 79 930. The sad part is this car sat from new. That is ashamed that it sit in a dark lonely corner all of it's past 30 years and never driven. Now that the time has passed it should be somewhere for all to admire and study.

I think cars are to be driven, but this one after all these years is different.

I wish I was in the area to see it myself. I have 2 79 930's one being the DP935.

You are very lucky to find and be able to purchase these cars. Thanks for sharing with us.

After witnessing a 930 owner completely melt down at the Porsche parade concours event because of several point deducts, personally I find this guy's attitude to be very refreshing and I'm glad he has taken the time to post pics and answer posts. Very cool story.

Having been there and faced a similar delima with a 1993 Toyota twin turbo with 7 miles on it with the delivery plastic and crayon docking marks still on it (never even pre delivery preformed on it, all plastic everywhere in interior) as kept as his first one he orderded to match his 7000 mile Ferrari Daytona, ( red/ black) who was the Toyota dealer who moved it forward to the hoist and back for storage related maintenance and run once in awhile. After I owned it for a short time ( just a few years ago ) I decided it was not for me, ( good thing as the garage it was in burned not long after). I have no idea if the fellow who bought it ( nor do I want to know ) ever put any miles on it . Along the same lines I know of a similar 1979 Porsche 930 red/Black the has been kept perfect since new,( never driven never titled ) and put on and off the hoist for storage related service and is one of the last 50 of the pre 1980 models with the signed dash plaque. Been trying to buy it for a number of clients for many years but he always changes his mind before the cash offer changes hands. I say if you have never dreamt yourself,
to have one of the best original 930s then let it go to the person who wants it most. Or maybe that is you?

If it was not my dream car ( after a time to contemplate it ) I would sell it before anything serious was done to it ( other than a minor cleaning). That way the dreamer / new owner could do it up as per their want's from just as it was when it emerged from when it was put away when new. Sort of like being in a time warp for the ultimate user. I think that is the condition for it to be sold, to be most appreciated, for the purpose of his/her fulfillment.

1979 930, could you post some pics of the engine compartment, front trunk (hopefully carpet removed) and under carriage?

I would like to see what showroom shots looks like
I mean without the 20+ years of road grime and all!

Sorry if you already posted pics of this, but didn't see them.

My thoughts on driving it VS pickling it...
If the car is worth, say 60k+ pickle it and buy a used one else drive it like you stole it!

Depending on the storage conditions - during 30 years, that car could be WAYS APPART from a museum piece, unless fully restored advertising the 38 miles on the odometer.

But IF, may be and very seldom, it was properly kept through out the years that's a different story... functional originality w/o wear & tear = a gem.
