Stock = BORING. But I agree with keeping it reversible IF it's considered part of your nest egg. If not and it's just another toy and you have the "you can't take it with you" mindset then do whatever the hell you want and let the purists cry in their box of q-tips.

Right on,
There is only so much "modernizing' you can do and you are still dealing with a very old car. If you want to go fast easily, buy a new car, if you want to go fast with out drivers aids and have it be a handful and dramatic,> Fun, 930.

My car is total "old school" every thing, Ruf 5-speed, Ruf P/C's, intercooler, turbo, exhaust, etc. Andial twin plug distributor with Bosch CDI, Carrillo rods and 935 heads that smoke on startup, it is a stinky, loud, old, dangerous, fast car, Just the way I like it.
I have all the old school stuff because it is Cheap, I paid $25K modifed, a stock 930 would sell for about twice that, around 50k at that time.

My next 'mod' will be a hydraulic clutch linkage, after 30 years/85,000 miles of a heavy clutch, the steel tube in the tub for the clutch cable is ruined with a grove worn in it and I do not want to buy another Ruf cable.

I loves me some wimminz with angry looks on their faces!!!


I see that some/many people here suggest keeping stock parts fore a possible "what if" moment in the future (70'sBush even spent good money to round up stockers! ), but I do the opposite; I sell the stock parts to originality dorks in order to help pay for go-fast stuff. Butt I do not think of machines as investments, and I certainly do not buy into the "we don't own these cars but are just caretakers of them" malarkey that you see posted in the 911 forum from time to time. To me, these are just cars, and not the cure to cancer or perfect sets of boobs!

Oh man do I completely agree and roll my eyes when I hear the "caretaker" comments. What a bunch of upper crust malarkey. With the current directions of our government, global warming and electric cars that drive themselves. You better enjoy the fossil fuel freedom while you can. Our days are numbered and theses cars will be illegal and worthless before the end of my lifetime. Rush Red Barchetta Prophecy.

I really like IckyFicke's car, too; only lacking one thing to make it truly boss, and it will likely get it at some point (when the dude is finished fooling around with slow car builds! )!

I have a
- 67S - modifed
- 78 930 - heavily modified
- 08 GT3 RS - modified
and hopefully a 54 356 Cab, which will be outlawed.

I can't leave them stock. However, if I had a 918, Carrera GT, 904, 906 - those would probably remain stock (other than some wheel changes)

Couldn't agree more - tuning CIS with period mods (Andial shortneck, K27, headers, etc) then outrunning modern stuff is just so fun and gratifying.
