Can we have a dedicated 930 forum?

Just a request. The time has come. This forum focuses too much on modifying. I believe there are those who favor keeping the cars as they were meant. Why don't we deserve a dedicated 930 forum? I know this will offend some but all this modifying is not true to originality. I know I will get flamed for this but the time has come. We need a dedicated 930 forum. We can still have a supercharging forum. But we need a 930 forum 75/89.

not offended at all. Might be something here maybe a 930 restoration forum that focuses how the cars were originally put together by Porsche how things work correct parts and pieces where to source them. Me coming from the muscle car world very familiar with the topic. And considering the value going up on these cars I think it'll be a natural progression.

I would just rename the current forum the 930 Forum. There is already a good mix of mod threads and original/ resto threads, I can't remember the last autox or supercharger thread. It's a natural progression, for years the cars were not considered "collectable", the prices reflected this, lots of cars were modified. Now that the 930 is seeing a value adjustment there is more interest in preserving some of the cars.

I'm not so sure I want to be separated from the "Mod Crew"
Even though I am mostly into originality, I still value these guys to comments to my posts.
They know stuff when it comes to bits'n pieces and work on these cars :-)

I would disagree.. this forum doesn't get that much traffic and most of the mods are done to 930's
Those of us who've been here a while are still grateful that we have a 911/930 turbo forum.. When this thing started it seems that there were only a handful of us on it..

We have one already it's called "Rennlist"...lol...truth is one of my enjoyments of Pelican is the different ideas in modifying/individualizations that many here on Pelican share with the community. Keeping these things stock as Papa Porsche is a good idea for investment purposes also many love originality, which is great too but this community offers a lot more and for that we should all be grateful. Having a separate 930 forum would probably mean more work for Wayne(and his Moderators)..keep in mind Pelican is a free forum....IMO we already get enough....but hey that's just me...I'm far from originality..

Straight-up unnecessary idea as this forum is small and sparsely used in its current state.

Original and concours only 930 forum might leave out the spirit of the original intent of the 930 project. Super car performance requires similar upgrades as developed by Porsche Motorsports for the original 930. Original factory modded 930s are in short supply.

If you don't like mod threads skip over them and then go back to Rennlist.

If you want full focus om originality, the "930 Turbo Carrera" thread on FerrariChat is just for you.
It is incredibly comprehensive and really nerdy (in a good way if this is your thing)

I'll have to disagree with the O.P. since I covet an EFI engine one day. I admit it.

Why not? Seems like a sensible thing to do. If it keep me from ever seeing another Zork thread. I'm all for it!

Exactly........and consider this also:
A 935 won the Le Mans overall because a couple og brothers called Kremer fiddled with it and made it better than ever before.

And that is just the best known example of succesful privateers associated with the brand.

Porsche heritage and attraction is about so much more than originality and factory.

What ever your preference, there is a Porsche for you.....
.....I kinda like the Pelican-mix of things :-)

That would be one dead forum. It's already slow now.

I don't have a 930, but the fact my 3.2 (3.4) is turbocharged and I've rebuilt my engine (along with EFI), I can contribute here and there.

I'm don't agree with the separation, but hey, I don't have a 930 and will leave well enough alone.......especially if an owner has elitism issues. 5 years ago, I had PM's out the wazoo for 930's that cost less than my Carrera 3.2.

The Porsche Kremer 935 street version ( an original modded 930 for the original only seekers to mull over ) from Porsche Kremer racing GMBH. Kremer built world class winning Porsches including the 935 for well over a decade.

There's no pure original nazi 911 forum...why should there be one for 930?

How exactly do you define: "keeping the cars as they were meant". Such a subjective concept.

I'll bet you'd get a lot more support for the idea of a dedicated 930 parts section.

I thought this was the 930 forum????

JK

But truthfully I normally come here to check in on all 930 stuff. I enjoy originality almost as much as I enjoy the fire breathing modded monsters on here. The blend makes this the most desired forum for me.


My 2 cents

What in the heck would there be to talk about in a keep it factory stock forum? "What car cover is best for long term storage?"
