[QUOTE=RarlyL8;8361523]You know why bone stock collector cars command the highest prices, because they are unmolested and unused. May as well have the wooden engine that came in the prototype Porsche put on display.

The price are going crazy for stock ones even here in Canada also.
For the first times 3-4 ads saying that they are buying 930 or aircooled porsche for good money.
There's a 1985 for 6 figures.

Just glad I bought in 2012 mine to mod the freaking **** out of it even if I'm too poor right now

Criss this is what I did with my car along with removing all of the smog equipment Huge difference in performance. I put all the old parts in boxes in the attic If I ever do decide to sell which I doubt but you never know I will just replace all of the stock parts again

no when i was looking for one i wanted close to original because hopefully it has not been road hard and put away wet. what do you think would be a more reliable car. one that is stock and the motor has not been stressed or one that has been run at 1-1.2bar, lord only knows what the AFR's have been and timing has been set to and probably has been tracked.

mine has the things i wanted, extra oil coolers, bigger IC, bigger turbo very nice wheels 42k miles, original paint but unfortunately the one thing i did NOT want. a variable boost knob. (dial-o-death).

A stock 930 came with more horsepower than the newest stock Cayman (maybe not too much longer) so it's a false premise to say keep it stock OR enjoy it.

and while I enjoy it I keep watching the countdown. . . Heh Heh Heh

and Paul, make sure you're polishing it every night. (the car I mean!)

Maybe, but my Lord, what an ugly beast that is.

Modded ones work sooooooo much nicer. And are sooooooo much more fun to drive, I would never go back to stock. I've kept every piece I took off or changed, though. Just in case I don't pass it on to my son...

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...personally I love the look of the 934....so raw and purposeful looking....so much character...

Had to chime in....

I am in the camp that someone has to preserve the stock car and keep it in the eyes of the collector/preserver/enthusiast . I drove one of these back in 86 and wanted that experience again. These stock cars have great character in my view, and I enjoy driving/showing my car to folks that appreciate what it represented back in the day.

My car is a trailer queen to most , but a time warp to me with just 5k miles in as new condition, most of all its the way I want it.

^^^^^Plus a lot more horsepower!
There is no better car in my opinion than a modified 930.
Stock Porsche's are fine for some.....just not for me.
