Dude, like someone else indicated, you've got that backwards as "911 Turbo" was the "'Merican thang".

I'll simply agree to disagree. The folks around here refer to it as "One dem Porch cars..."

The ZZZ indicates it is a grey market car, the 93 indicates it is a turbo ( 930). Regarding the 930 question the car was originally developed and internally designated as the 930 project, so its a 930. Also ask your friends if they think it is a front porch or a back porch? The top of the spoiler is a great place to put beer and food on. Don't do that at a Porsche concours, they will get upset.

I don't understand why somebody wouldn't want the basic bolt-on mods: better turbo, bigger IC, and a free-flowing exhaust without the cat or thermal reactors (if you can get away with that). These improve not only performance, but longevity, allowing the engine to breath better and run cooler. If someone is slapping thermal reactors back on for the sake of keeping the car "original," they should have their head checked.

Reply to Above somewhere..

As most know Porsche 911 Type 930 is the correct designation for the Turbo models

We need a ROW Forum lol

ROW Euro cars (the real ones) are badged with just the word TURBO
Theyre the lighter faster and higher HP 930's with factory HP over 260 hp for 75/76/77 then up to over 300 for 78 and later

I say over hp because any engine that didnt make 260 was chucked so some cars have much higher hp than quoted in books

American cars (The low hp ones) are badged Turbo Carrera about 234hp?
I dont think they have much more HP than a ROW Euro 911sc do they?

So i think there should be a New Forum for real 930's, the Euro ones, a much better idea than stock or modded because the Euro cars are worlds apart from the slow heavy US ones, our parts need to be of higher quality cos our cars go faster lol

This forum is doing a great job, I haven't posted much on here but I'm going to start. The info I have gathered here has been invaluable. My 86 had some (distasteful to me) mods when I bought it 3 years ago-window tinting, stereo, amps, speakers etc. slowly I have been returning to near stock and I love driving this car!

Keep this forum just the way it is, guys. We don't need another.

My tub is a true 911 turbo. It's kind of like a skinny stripper with implants. I hope this forum stays "as is".

Read the first 2 pages, consensus seemed to be "keep as is", to which I'm very much in agreement with....

....except the comment about making it just a 930 forum.

I'm a 964 Turbo owner, and there are 993 Turbo owners (I'm sure) that are also lurking and contributing here. If it gets made into JUST a 930 forum then it kinda leaves us lot out in the cold - there's sod-all doing in the 964/993 forum for Turbo owners (in fact there's sod-all happening there most of the time, period)

Howsabout we rename is "Aircooled Turbo/Supercharged" to encompass us (formally)?

There's always seems to be a few questions floating around that are asking if later parts fit older cars, and vice-versa the 964 guys asking about whether stuff is the same or different on the original gen cars.

FWIW - I love hanging out here and reading about the 930 projects - the 930, for some reason was never really on my buying radar a few years ago, but the enthusiasm on here has definitely changed my thoughts on that.

BTW - Love Cole/Brian/Paul's comments, pmsl....bang-on as always! (Hi Guys!)

I am months away from turning 50. Will never be able to work on one of these unless I retire and have someone locally hang out with me. I would provide all beverages and food. But realistically, I have had a 35 year lust for these cars. Love the looks, fun to drive. I consider an old school hot rod. I like reading about the originals, like me some zork tube threads, the different builds. There is room for everyone somewhere in here. Would ruin this place if it got broken up. What a great group of people and resources.
