911 Porsche converted to 930 turbo

How is the value of a converted 1980 911 to 930 turbo ? It's in good shape.

20-30% even if done with many factory parts. It will never be a 930. But it can be just as much fun.

This may be old math but here is the way I look at it since I own one. "Pretty good shape" 930 Turbo $50G. 911 $25G. 911 with all 930 parts $40. .
I agree on the FUN! part.

I think the car's history will determine price/value over all else. Why was it converted? Because the original owner had delusions of grandeur and an open check book? Or because the car was smacked so hard it got totaled and some of the insurance money went towards less expensive fiberglass parts and more expensive drivetrain upgrades? Obviously in my opinion the former would be much more valuable than the latter...

Steve, great looking car!

Thanks for your responses and wisdom. Not much documentation on the car ?

Good question. There are so many variations in a conversion. Some have engine trans conversion, some just the engine some both and body conversion but no brakes. Each one is difrent and hard to put a common value on unlike a real 930. It will never be a real one no matter the money spent. Always a converted car is somewhat a stepchild aroma will be stuck to it. Fun to drive? Absolutely.
If I were to put a number in mine Id give it $35000 in today's market as soon as I'm finished with my 930 trans swap. Maybe more if someone loves the colors inside. With the 915 gearbox I wouldn't feel right selling it with the power level I run with it and 915. So it might be more like high $20's that way. I'm no expert but I look around a lot.
It looks like matching numbers cars in great shape will fetch more $. So if that's your hopes then leave the car alone other than freshening it up cosmetically and mechanically.
Franken Porsches are cool so if that's whatcha got just enjoy it. But it's not as valuable.
My car has a 930/51 engine and I happen to feel like it has more value than a 3.3 engine but so far no one else has had the desire to swap mine for theirs which I'm open to. Someone out there has a 76 930 that needs my engine and my hope is that they'll pay big numbers for mine.
Fingers crossed.

As others have said it depends on the car. How much of the car was converted to 930? Engine, trans, suspension, brakes, trailing arms, body. Besides the Flairs there are some other body difference like front cross member mounting height.

But anything is worth what someone will pay for it.

when i was looking for a car i found a super nice 77s with a twin turbo engine. the car looked incredible especially with the 2 turbos, but it would always be a 77s. unfortunately he was in the 930 price range or very near to it. so i bought a very nice 930.

i think quatro is as about as close as you can get.
how i would go about finding the price is with a lot of research, which is what i did when i was buying. find what 930's are SELLING for not what these Aholes are listing them for. (yea they bring the price of mine up but i hated all the brokers/dealers when i was looking).
then i would price what 911's are selling for and put it somewhere in the mid to upper range of the difference. but you have to research to have something to compare it to. like quatro said, they are all so different.

you also need to look at 911's with other engine options. me, if i am not going to buy a 930 then i would find something nice with a 3.6 in it instead of a turbo. it will be waaay more fun.

there is an orange longhood on here i would really consider trading my 930 for.

Conversions are a niche market item. Sell price depends on mods and execution. A well sorted track car has its own value as would a well sorted conversion, to the right buyer.

That said Brian, do you prefer the Red Rocket or the Gray Ghost?

Unfortunately preferece has nothing to do with value. The Red Rocket was a ton of fun and a unique machine, but a 911 not a 930. It was sold as a hotrod 911 at a price between the value of a 911 and 930. The Gray Ghost has greater potential that I am very eager to tap ...
