Any good deals on 930's out there?

Was missing my old 930 and wanted to get another one until I saw how expensive they are now! Don't need a show car but would like a good driver....any of these popping up for sale under 30k anymore?

let me be first: Not even close


Unless you run across a seller that is completely unaware of the market (and has no access to the internet)

pricing has gotten crazy

I used to get PM's all the time for $20k 100k mile cars 6-7 years ago.

I see that's gone....

I went and looked at one in Baytown last September that the guy sold for 25k with 65k on it .... It was an ok car but had a lot of stuff in it that was not to my taste...body kit and rockers , and it was leaking from the rms like the Valdez.... Ran hard though. Sometimes they are out there but they are going to need some work.

Welcome back. I remember your green '79. Great car, great color. I recently bought this one for 25k '87 930 GPW - Asbury It was in an "agricultural excursion" at a racetrack. PO spared no expense fixing the car, I can't see any evidence of prior damage. Engine 100% stock and all original emission equipment is intact and functional. I think I got a deal, but this isn't a "no stories" car. As others have already mentioned, you won't find much at this end of the market...things have changed.

Thanks jwasbury! That looks like a great car, hope to find something similar. Not in a hurry so maybe something will come along.

Hey Matt-

Good to hear you're thinking of coming back. I always adored your green car, shame you let it go but I get it... BTDT.

Hmmmm... you should buy yours back, but @ a discount? Oh wait, that only (somehow??!!??) happens to me .

Shame you didn't wake up and smell the roses prior to - say - the end of last summer. Things have gotten QUITE silly now as you're seeing / as mentioned.

Don't use Jake's example as a barometer either... that transaction most definitely benefited by a sympathetic seller to an ultimate cause (Mark-a-thon). Which is butofcourse AWESOME. Just not a good datapoint for you.

I knew that silver car had to have a story, it's been FS forever. Shame.

There have been a few odd / ends crop up recently in 'affordable' range (mostly high 30s / low 40s) but they need work. Guy in MD on here currently selling a nice light blue one, needs a headstud and some other TLC.

Regardless, good luck to you...

Thanks Paul, I tried a 996 and a Viper in my absence but neither one of them was as fun to drive as the 930!
