Talking Fair Asking Price for my 930?

Hey, guys. Hoping to get some opinions on what would be a fair asking price for my '87 930 in today's market. I've owned the car for 15 years. PCA member for most of that time. 30K miles. No accidents, no stories. K27, larger IC, GHL E/H, Leaske WUR. Sport seats, LSD. Car starts, runs, drives flawlessly. I have every stock part to go with car (exhaust, smog equip etc.) Serviced by Powertech in NJ since purchased in '97 (they did the PPI back then). Here are a few pics taken today... Regards, R. Gordon

Between 40-50K with all the stock parts. Your car looks clean. Good luck with the sale.

Post your question up on the Porsche Marketplace Discussion Forum.

I would recommend putting all of the factory parts back on the car and selling it bone stock. If that were done, given the mileage and if the paint is all original I think you'd be in the neighborhood of 50k.

Sell the parts in the marketplace separately for another ~$3,000.

I just looked up the nada book value on it//low is 27000////average retail is 32000 and high book is 45k/ a bank will only loan book value and if your looking for 50k goodluck in todays market!!!my bet is she takes anywhere from 30-45k depending how fast you want to sell her. She does look clean!!! a car is only worth what somebody who has cash in hand willing to depart with. i was watching a silver 930 on ebay which was cleaners with better colors and it only took 38k!!!

Unfortunately the season (holiday..winter) might hinder a decent sale price. As previously said, between $40-50k but that all depends on how bad you want to sell it. Putting her back to stock is time consuming. I would suggest listing her first as-is while offering the stock parts as a no cost option. If you have no takers than I would return her back to stock. If you could hold out for the good weather to arrive than I would suggest you do so. She is a beauty.

I'd say $37000-$40000.

As a data point I paid $30000 for my '87 with similar mods and about double the miles.

87 930

45 to 50k

Just saw a 87 930 with 8,000 original miles sell for 70k at auction.

I would not sell it just yet, you are going to miss it.

Sell the blue car above the 930.

If you want top dollar take it back to bone stock, everything including the steering wheel and rear valance. Have the car thoroughly detailed and a PPI done. That will take it from a $35K car to a $50K car.

I like the mods and I think many out there would appreciate the performance gains. As long as you offer the stock parts in the deal, I think you could still get a good amount. By selling the car as is, is like icing on the cake as long as all the stock stuff is there. These cars are going up in price. No less then 40K. Be firm!

I have the same Year, Color and Mods as you do but with more miles. You should get mid $40"s K I would hope. May the force be with you, It's a beauty.

Take it from a Mopar dealer, sell the Viper! I say remove the pink steering wheel and sell as is. Nothing wakes up the 930 like a set of headers and a good exhaust. I would expect your car to realistically sell for right under $50K if you get higher than that you are knocking on the ceiling where some nice 965 may be on the low side as well as the more desirable 89 cars. That being said the really early 930 are surprisingly strong right now. I would hold for the right buyer and I hope it stays in the US. She is really pretty, good luck.

Stock is best

Tt surgeon is right.
I would only keep the exhaust on, go stock on everything else and detail it for a fair and firm 50K
When you publish it, very specific about the time and care you've had on the car and explain any and all issues plus the way you've tackled them. I have just bought my '79 930 and as far as I know after looking around for months, more than simple mileage, receipts and documentation, I went for the car whose owner expressed the most loving care for and alas, I struck gold.
One more thing, an aftermarket shiny stereo or steering wheel is a big turnoff because it tells the buyer that maybe the car was owned sometime by a too-young and loud tuner and that there might be a mess of cabling under the dash. Nothing speaks more "stock" and conserved than a dull and perfect OEM stereo on the dash and a bone-stock wheel.

Have to give Sloan cars credit for advertising it "as received " in the engine bay. They must believe the miles with good documentation, with the in your face photos, otherwise it would be easy to clean it up and repair the paint. Being a long time rare Porsche dealer I'm sure they know how to make those issues go away. I give them credit for being an honest broker to pass it along the way it was received. Maybe the price is a little high but a rare car, as 1978 was the least produced US 930 (only 461 cars). As a rare color 930 it may not be a favorite to many, but for a few it may be the most desirable and Sloan Cars sells many rare cars at or close to the prices asked. I personally would not put money on the table to second guess his expertise. No affiliation.
