Hopefully what you got for the turbo will cover BB's full service.

I do have sellers remorse but I am on the mend.
They can't stay high forever.

I remember 69 Camaro's being $30k cars restored one year, $100k+ the next. Now, they've settled down again to normal numbers.

I bet it'll happen with the 930 as the next golden car will be "discovered"....

I am sure the money makes u feel good about selling her but wow that is one heck of a nice 930.I have now owned mine for twenty years and i would have a hard time letting her go.I have done mostly all of the work with some exceptions of rebuilding the motor.I am sure you have to miss her.

thank you Anthony. I have owned my bb for 15 years. not turbo fast but my car is in full euro trim. no bumper brackets, door beams, cats etc. it is quite strong. dick fritz tested a fully federalized car in road and track doing 0-60 in 5.1 seconds and 178 mph. dick told me that my car with the sport headers was a solid 180+ mph car. I have done roll on acceleration with my buddy and his 996 x-50. he edges me out but quite close! the boxer roar is quite magical as well.

alas...I am a Porsche guy always and do miss my 930.

beginning to plan on what's next. pointing in the direction of the vantage v-12 6sp.
