The early muffler had a single large outlet instead of two separate one - and fed the wastegate into the muffler instead of using a separate muffler for that..

IIRC, Canada had to take US models due to emissions laws, but could import RoW models if not offered in the US market that year - like the years the 930 wasn't.
Not quite - 930s were always available in Canada, and Canadian cars always had the ROW engine but the body was the same as the US 930s (ie big bumper boobs, crappy headlights, no side marker lights).

Sam my son is sitting next to me spelling out Top Gear magazine. And it's his 12th birthday on Thursday.

That's great that you're picking up the 930 and driving it home. It will be a trip you will never forget. I know 'cause that's what I did and what a blast I had! Don't forget to post pics and story once you get back!

We are still on our way! After a delay of about 4 Hours we finally arrived at our hotel in Boise, Idaho after midnight. Our incomming flight got hit by a bird and we had to wait for a specialist to fly in. We had booked a hotel on a short walking distance from the dealership.

Yesterday morning we walked over and there she was, waiting to be driven. The car is in a better condition than I cpuld have hoped for! The interior is in like new condition. This car has been well taken car off. Besides the rims its all bone stock. My kid had a big laugh looking at the stock Blaupunkt radio. Got more buttons than the Apollo 13 he said.

After the massive amount of paperwork we where ready to go! I have been told the car has been traded in on a Cayman by the original owner.

We have driven the car now for about 800 km without a glitch! Its a good driver, but i will put it on the lift tonight and check the front end. I would not be surprised if the original shocks are still mounted. It feels a bit sloppy in the front.

We are having a great time ! We will hit the border this morning and if all goes well we will be home before supper! I will post pictures tonight. I am typing this with my phone and have no idea (and patience) how to do that.

Sam and Erik

Happy birthday Sam!

And we are home! We left from Kelowna airport Tuesday afternoon, and with a 4 hour delay in our flight we arrived at Boise airport just after midnight. We booked a hotel on walking distance of the dealership. On the Wednesday we walked over and the cat was all detailed waiting for us at the Porsche dealership.

We where offered a test drive, even we already paid for it...We took it for a spin and could not wait to be on the road! After a hour of boring paperwork we got the keys handed over and started our trip.

The first "leg" of our tour took us to one of our suppliers just outside of Boise. Every body who we talked to complemented us with the car! It's in such beautiful condition!

After about 800 Km we decided it was time for a rest. We booked a hotel just outside of Oroville to get ready for the border crossing on Thursday.

Thursday morning we where ready for the border. It was a little bit less than the 72 hours notice but US customs did not give us any problems. US border officials where very easy going this time! We got our paperwork stamped off and where on our way to the Canadian officials! Other than last year US customs did not even bother to check the VIN number....

In all honesty I have to say US customs where very friendly, actually bit more friendly than our Canadian border guards. We now know the import duty does not apply for cars over 25 years, but do they know? Lets find out!

There is a few ways how we can handle this. We have to understand we are dealing with large ego's at the border, so we need to be careful. One way would be to let them do their thing, and confront them as they ask us to pay the duty. We will question their knowledge and make them uncomfortable.

We decided to do it differently. We filled in the forms and handed them over to the officer. At that point we very friendly pointed out that we think no duties should be paid and handed over the printed guidance of the tariff. The officer was clearly not informed about this exemption and asked us to take a seat while he was "taking care of the paperwork". At return he did not mention anything about the tariff and did not charge us for it! The funny part is that after paying up the lady one of the fellow officers came up to the counter and asked if they could keep the printout of the tariff for future reference.

So.....Oroville border crossing is informed! The complete procedure took us less than one our. Damage, only the 5% GST. No aircon levy as they dis not bother to ask or look. Interesting thing is that both US and Canadian officials did not bother to check the VIN....

Anyways, we continued our journey and cruised the beautiful Okanagan Valley back home. A 1300 Km road trip with not a single problem! We bought a litre of Mobil 1 to top off and we are good for the next road trip!

Today we had our provincial inspection, and they found 3 fails. a crack in the rear reflector, moist in the headlight and a worn rear wiper blade..

At the end, I am very very happy with it!! It is for sure more than we bargained for!! I would rate the interior 8.5/9 out of 10 and the exterior 8 0f 10. The interior has no signs of wear, except for some fading of the chairs. A little bot of TLC and leather conditioner will solve that easily. The outside got some minor rock damage on the front and mirrors.

The mechanic part has proven itself in 1200 K I think the clutch is a bit heavy and the gearbox isn't as smooth. But as I don't have anything to compare it with so I could not tell if this is normal or not.

The front is a tat sloppy but I would not be surprised the shocks are still stock, as everything on this car, including radio is bone stock.

I have the name and address of the original owner on the title. I will try to get in contact with him and ask about the Fuchs.... Does not hurt to try... The story is he traded it for a cayman.

I will for sure get some wheels, but to be honest, I don't know if I would go for Fuchs or speed lines....

Pictures! Remember, its a bit dirty after the trip.

Good to see the trip worked out. Yes the 4 speed manual transmissions are lets say "different" then most cars.

Nice car!
Re the front shocks, the 930s have a replaceable insert that goes into the housing. The rears have a replaceable shock assembly. I replaced my originals with Bilstein sport yellow rear shocks and front inserts, about a 2hr job unless you encounter rust.
I would start by having the car aligned, that would probably fix your front end woes.
Try Jim D over on rennlist for speedlines in the correct fitment.
Enjoy!
