My car has typical bolt on mods and it hung right with a Nissan GT-R from 60mph up to about 130mph. The Nissan driver was astonished.

This car is faster than a new $400000 Lexus LF-A in the quarter mile.
Quarter mile results.
Had an identical experience with my 930 and a friend's GT-R. We were literally neck and neck upt to around 140.

My experience with Ford sucks, especially their service. I wrote letters to Ford,emails,phone..blah--blah--- Their--answer we apologize....again and again...zzzzzzzzzz.

I purchased a car w/o even looking at it, just the internet way. They still couldn't get it right. Perfect customer....Just want to sign and drive off.

Thank goodness I haven't had any major problems with it.

Oh---lets not forget my dealer closed up 1year 1/2 later....Not surprised...

Congrats on your purchase- BOSS

INMOP-- I would of got a used Z06- Darn cheap and alot of car.

My only comment is, once a car goes from factory to modifed, all bets are off. Especially on forced induction machines. A lot of things factor on a roadway, and depends on the drivers given skill level.

Good times -

These types of comparisons are absurd.

2011 Boss Mustang:


5.0 Liter / 305 Cu. In

440Hp

0-60 4.2 sec.

1/4 Mile 12.7


A 2011 Boss Mustang may be a few 10ths. faster than a 25-33 year older Porsche 930


2011 Boss Mustang:

5.0 Liter / 305 Cu.In.

440HP


"The Sled" 1980 ROW 930

3.3 Liter / 201 Cu. In.

300 HP


Lets Look at the 1980 Cobra Mustang ( Road & Track Published Specs)

1980 Cobra Mustang

0 - 60 11.8 Sec.

1/4 Mile 18.4 Sec.

4.2 Liter / 255 Cu. In.


Conclusion: A 2011 Mustang is faster than a 25 - 33 year old Porsche 930


( It should be with 50% more displacement and 140 more Hp.)

cole, you didn't post up the price in that comparison. We just want to be fair and compare ALL the facts


But this post wasn't to bash any car, they just made note of the differences

I like the ZOR, but I wanted a fun car so our son could ride along. He has outgrown the backseat (sorta backseat) in the 930 and 911. Heck, there are good deals on ZR1s out there to.

Also, my point in posting was that our 930s are still very special cars. After driving almost 5K miles on the Boss, I still believe my 930 is faster after 60 MPH. The Boss's ability to corner and its low end power is a blast. For a mid 40k car, it has been worth every penny so far. It shares the daily driving task with a Honda Accord. The Accord beats it on gas mileage; no surprise there. The best I can get on the Boss is 22 MPG.

In saying that, the 930 will always have a place in our garage. The 930 is too brutal and wicked to every leave our household!

Did a quick search and found an old C&D article that listed MSRP as 32K
for a new 79 930. I figured that to be pretty close because when I first saw a newly
introduced 76 930 at a local dealership, (which, the very sight of, started my 35 lustful addiction) the sticker was 27K. I distinctly remember the price of the 76 because it was 3 times the cost of the house I had just bought.

Congrats Stephanie! I can't tell is it the Laguna Seca version? I really like these stangs and appreciate what their purpose is. I will be interested in how it holds together as I have not owned an American car in 32 years!

Cole, The Porsche shop next door has a 1980 SC Targa they are working on. In the glovebox was the window sticker..... MSRP was $34,000. If a 79 930 MSRP'd at $32K how was this Targa more? Was the Targa a big ticket option?

You could very well be correct. Just passing on the only information I found.

Not the Laguna Seca. Laguna Secas are Red and black or Red and white with a rear seat delete. I am guessing people won't be getting delivery of the LS until August or September. This is the first American Car we have ever owned. 5000 miles on my odometer and drives beautifully.

I remember our local dealer (S.F. Bay Area) had a $49K sticker price for one of the last 50 '79 930's.
