Porsche Crest Hello everyone and this is my 1984 930 3.3 Turbo Euro. Lots of PICS

Hey guys
Decided it was time to introduce myself finally.

A got this car officially as of January 2013 but have tinkered on it a couple months before. Its a 1984 Grey Market turbo, I believe from france due to yellow fog lights and a tag under the decklid thats all in french. I sadly didnt recieve much previous info or papers with it, besides a paper stating a reason for tow because of an arrest, i assume drunk driving one time.
I believe im either the 4th or third owner, and its lived in the Mountains of western NC for awhile.
When i first saw it i thought it was the nastiest 911 ive seen, it had mold, spiders, interior smelled bad, spiderwebs all over, interior was full of webs and leaves.
Took it little by little and now its just about perfectly clean.
The reason it was parked was because Pete Martin of Stuttgart motor werks did a "tune up" on it which made the car run like absolute crap.

Anyways i began to make it run i ended up replacing the WUR and as of now i drive it on the weekends, the mixtures and COs are not correct though.
It had 55,347 miles when i got it and i sw the odo stop working at 55,479 [FIXED with new odo gear]

The gearbox also shifts sloppy.[FIXED somewhat] Anyways ask questions, and on to the pictures:
Before i knew it was ever going to be mine:

Cleaned up to the point where its mostly sitable in:


Making it Run:


It runs, now accross the street to get gas:




Fiat 500 hub caps???


Finally somewhat clean:

Fist semi wash:


Plastidipped the flaky tail and front headlight surrounds, i will remove the dip from the headlight surrounds as i dont like them black and ill just wetsand, polish them to look better before i get any actuall paint work done:


Gold bbs has dryrotted tires, ordering new ones Continental DW and wearing these turbo twists? for now.:



New tires on, friend of mine posing for a pic:


First short drive on the parkway, halfway up i pressed the clutch and BANG felt as though a spring flew off or something, it was making a creakinbg sound the day before, and clutch poedal now became really stiff. and it wasnt the omega spring, it definitley felt it was in the pedal.


Wide hips:


Brought it back to charlotte, now i can take more time on detailing it:


Love seeing other Porsche guys on the road:

Where did you find the car? Looks like a fun project that doesn't need much! Nice to see someone else from the Charlotte area!

Thanks for your time, questions and comments welcome
Operating the engine with a broken headstud means additional damage to the cylinder and head, so definitely not safe with regard to your wallet.

Nice and nasty Car
Welcome to the nastiest online family
Owning a 930 im sure youll agree nothing else will give you as much happiness and joy


and

anger,
frustration,
hate/love (whats the difference?)
sore knuckles
more anger
more frustration
sore toes (from kicking it)
Headaches
divorce
more anger
new wife
more frustration and sore knuckles
divorce
headaches
INSANITY

You can tell a 930 owner just by looking at one,
Always the one that's got a confused faraway look in his eye, never quite there thinking did i check my afr? heck i didnt gap the plugs gotta do another engine drop, where did i leave that spanner? if i put on a bigger ic ill get another 20hp.. it goes on ill add insanity to the list


But you own a 930 the greatest car ever made and at the end of the day that's all that matters

Tha snap was the clutch pedal assist spring, under the floorboard in the clutch pedal assembly. The turbo spring is nla, but the blue sc spring works just fine.
Good luck on the car.

I dont read and reply much, but I had to on this one. I have owned a few porsches over the past ten years. I have owned my 930 for about 3 years now. This statement is 110% accurate. I could not have said it better....

Yep I've seen the blue one on sale, I tried to get down there to see if I could maybe reattach it, but I wasn't sure on how to remove the wooden floor board piece. I didn't try anything with it.
And thank you

Oh and didn't state my plans for it.
I'll just be trying to keep it as original as possible, fix things broken and just general upkeep. Maybe try some Fuchs later on. Btw did all turbos come with Fuchs stock? Are my BBS's most likely aftermarket?

How will a repaint affect it's authenticity and value? By repaint it would mean the same colour and widows out repaint.

It will be a driver.
Oh and I really want to put in the Porsche classic stereo In it. The one that has nav USB and everything but looks very classical and time period fitting.

Edit: one more question sorry... I have a lock in the drivers door, but no key for it. I was told it was a form of an alarm system?

Wow, $65,000 is a little steep for a rough condition Euro car with problems...

meant to reply when you'd orig posted this thread but buried w/ holiDAZE madness

congrats / welcome

niiiiice score! Love the color. Funny, that's the 2nd of that which has surfaced here in the past month, the other on some carribean island or some such

funny folks will let such icons sit neglected outside like that - crazy amount of pollen scum built up in the hood jam

if it needs paint and you've the means (ability and/or $$$) to do it and do it right... then paint it - the detriment to worth will be less than shoddy orig paint IMO

yes all 930s came w/ Fuchs, first 7s&8s then 7s&9s on the later ones

I believe your BBS's are 8s and 10s... desirable, and classic looking. I also believe they were optional, either from dealer or Mfg. at the time of purchase.

Yes, the door jamb lock is for some alarm - for which I too do not have the key 8-).

The wood floor insert comes right out, few Phillips screws or like 10mm bolts IIRC... take a look it's quite easy

Yes, take the wooden floorboard out, there are a couple of threads on how to do this repair.
65k, wow!

lol, I hadn't clicked that link yet

um... slightly high on the market there chiefy 8-)

so you got this to flip it then

btw, odometer gear has broken it's extremely (!!!) common, often the result of pressing the trip reset while rolling, the gears are old, brittle, and dry up and sheer teeth. ~ $25 and DIY if you're 1/2 mechanically inclined (I'm only about 1/64th myself but did mine)
