The 930 made this list.

Interesting description of the 930 in this article. The performance numbers are a bit optimistic for a stock 930 IMHO.

Wow. I had no idea that a hemi cuda was worth a million bucks 6 years ago. Now it's still worth 250 grand. Incredible. Here's hoping my 930 can give me 20 years of fun then give retirement!

Todd just happened to quantify it for us ala appropo:

86 Slant with 12k miles FS in San Diego

"...I think leisure suits, tom Selick mustache's and porn movies with big hairy bushes..."

doesn't get much more macho than that

I think it's about right , the performance figures are spot on. It's performance was eye opening in its day. Remember, most muscle cars (I had many) would have trouble with traction and suspension to break the 5 sec 0-60 or 15 sec 1/4 mile times.
Plus, the 930 turbo was the only turbo Porsche ever raced.
It's performance in the day was truly mind blowing.

As much as I have loved 930s.. You need to recheck Porsche racing history. Plenty of 944 Turbos raced. Even 924 Turbos .. they raced at LeMans [and, yes, they were a Factory effort]. Ask Derrik Bell about that if you like.
