1989 930 Turbo Wanted

Looking for a 1989 930 Turbo.

I want a weekend driver so a good to very good condition car is required. A few minor chips is not an issue, but no rust. An accident free car is a must.

Stock or car with minor modifications would be acceptable. SS headers, larger intercooler and stronger turbo.

I will perform a full PPI so if you have known issues please be up-front with them and we can make a deal.

'89 930

What is your budget? I know of two bone stock accident-free coupes with low miles but they are pricey (55-65K).

There are many spotless beauties in that price range, I'm looking for a weekend driver. As a friend has told me "you don't want to worry if you put a chip in the spoiler "

I've been holding out for an 1989 but I'm now realizing that I've let a few real gems slip away so next time I'll just pull the trigger when the car fits.

As bluebox (Hi Bill!) pointed out, a truly nice '89 930 is an expensive car. I've been looking for several years now. I hate the wait but can't get my head around paying looney tunes prices...so I keep looking and hating.

What is the benefit of the 89 verses a different year?

The earlier 930 cars generally weighs less, have more feed back ( feels more like driving a earlier 911) and the really early ones have better weight distribution. Also interiors have a more vintage feel/smell. The 5 speed has its advantages and is easier to park and drive. Along with lots more electrical and optional stuff and improvements since 1975 to the heating / cooling for driver comfort ( along with many other changes elsewhere), and with the extra weight, they feel and drive totally different. Some like the effect as it is more like other later model performance cars. I still have a 1987 along with earlier 930s and do enjoy it as more of a daily driver or to let others drive it. However given the choice of having just one it would be a real early 930. I do have a 5spd 930 however it is a 1977 930 with a comp RUF short bellhousing one. Along with other early Andial mods a 1989 5spd has not tempted me, thus far. There is a 1985 euro (last year of the old school 930) RUF with a 5spd on EBay right now ( very tempting ) that should be a good place to park some money if the 5spd is a priority. A good mix of old & new 930.

Wasen't the 89 the first year of the C2 body style ? Or the last year of the 930 body style?

'89 was the last of the 930 line. Biggest benefit was having the factory 5-speed, as all previous 930s had a 4-speed unit. '89 also had a hydraulic clutch, as opposed to a cable-actuated one. And there's the cache from being the last of a development line.

There is no posting of pictures of your 89 turbo on this thread! I see them in my sleep at night..I see them every where I look (pictures at least) and every time I look at a clock it's either 9:30 am or 9:30 pm.

But... I don't see one in my driveway

So if you got mine in your driveway let me know!

Seriously...put your picture here...It's all I got to keep me going for now!

Here's my '89. I bought it in Folsom, CA... a nice dry climate, not a sign of rust anywhere. Oddly, this car was owned by the same *woman* for 16 years of its life. She was the 1st owner, sold it, and then subsequently bought it back. Maintained by the same shop throughout. It is a 100k mile car, but runs extremely well. I've taken it on 3 1000+ mile trips and it performed flawlessly.

I've added a Rarlyl8's SS exhaust, a K-27 7200 turbo, a B&B intercooler, a 930S steering wheel, and the Speedline Alesio wheels seen in the garage picture (18x9 and 18x11). I've also replaced the front control arm bushings, ball joints, the fan for the front oil cooler, and the trans output seals. I bought an (expensive) excellent set of the H1/H1 headlights for the car too, but have not yet installed them. I'd drive this car anywhere, and it does not leave a drip of anything underneath it.

It has undoubtedly had paint work, but it was good quality work. Everything in the car works.

As they say... everything is for sale if the price is right ;-)

I remember seeing your thread when you purchased this one. If I remember you where tight lipped on the price but the list of mods was exceptional. Fabulous car I was drooling at the pictures.

While I got a few 89 owners reading. Is it worth waiting to find an 89? There are a few 86 cars, available now, that I would snap-up if they where 89's.

I'm just looking for a weekend driver that I plan on keeping for many years.

I have a 87 w/the G50/50 trany.(done prior to purchase) Why are you so set on a 89? I say find a car that is set up to your liking and buy it.(get a PPI of course) Don`t just look at the 89`s there are a lot of great other years out there......

It's that 5 speed trany that I'd like. Plus.... but only minor issue, I think that the car will appreciate at a a higher rate then other years. Dollar value will not add to the driving "fun" of the car but all other things being equal why not!





What would this "patch work" do to the value of this car?
