Lol....I have a Ferrari 550 and I can (if I choose)...I can drive(which I do)..maintain(I actually work on my car)...and modify(I can if I want...but not needed). I love 930's but the 550 (which I also love) is a fantastic car that one can daily drive if one chooses..and with 480hp on tap..it's not short on power😉

Cool post on FB with 930's airborne.
I will take an all metal unibody over fiberglass any day..
Let's get back to Porsches hitting bottom and let's talk appreciation curve.!
My Ferrari 550 is tubular chassis with aluminum panels...as many Ferrari's are

Wondering what motivates people to sell. If you sell your 930 for $90,000 to $100,000 range you are not going to find anything close to as far a collectibility.

I sold mine 4.5 months ago because I needed the $ not because I didn't enjoy driving it anymore. It was beautiful and a lot of fun to drive and I feel fortunate to have owned it for 10 years.

As long as the economy is doing well, gasoline is available, and the world doesn't go crazy I think all air cooled Porsche's will continue to slowly increase in value.
There will never be anything like them made again.. and as far as I know they are the only car ever made with a galvanized steel unibody (starting from around 1976 on) to help avoid rust.

I don't know the real-world cost of a Testarossa engine rebuild, but given the range you provide for a 930 engine (this is a 930 forum and thread after all) I can't help but question your expertise on the subject.

Just had a partial rebuild/repair on a 43 original K well serviced and attended 79 930 over the years due to a broken exhaust valve head on #2 ( 1 piston, cylinder exhaust valve replaced. The head, cam, rocker and Turbo were repaired ) at a reasonable price shop. Cost over $15K. I think a full rebuild at a Porsche shop would be more like $25K and more if moving parts were broken. A full rebuild should also be to check all engine controls performance, turbo,, alternator etc. On a worn out motor many of these things will most likely need attention. So $25 K + would be a good place to think of.

I would have to agree that $15-$25K is low for having an engine rebuilt at a shop, not for DIY though; but you sold your 1980 930 and bought a Corvette? Doesn't that make your expertise subject?

Just sold my '85. My motivation for selling wasn't the market or predictions of the future, but the basic fact that it was time to move on to new hobbies and interests. I just didn't drive it enough to justify the garage space and felt that it deserved to go to a new owner who will enjoy it as much as I did.

Add retirement, new RV, grandkids, naps on the couch ....

I had plenty of fun with my 930cab, now it's time for another to enjoy and if the market is on the rise, ....

Actually, Rahl, I sold the 930 and bought a Mercedes SL. Sold the SL and bought the Corvette, which simply never had a chance of turning my screws, so it was gone within a couple of months. Have owned two other 911s since selling the 930 and most recently picked up a neat-as-a-pin Datsun Z-Car. Seems crazy to me, but I've received far more compliments on the Z than I ever did on the 930. My wife theorizes that it's because far more people recognize the Z and probably knew someone who owned one (or owned one themselves) in the seventies and can therefore relate to this little beauty more than they can the granddaddy of all German supercars.

I realized many years ago that I'm never going have a car collection. Instead, I decided I was going to to enjoy a wide, somewhat eclectic variety of cars ... one at a time. I've owned about 75 cars in my 60 years and figure, provided I can still turn a wrench, I have another dozen or so in me before I'm done.

Thanks, Ron. I'd say I always value your input, butt (as a not-so-wise man spells it) using the word input around you is just asking for trouble.

Out of curiosity I was told by a Ferrari Master Tech that a rebuild on a 12 cyl is around $30K..but I'm sure that also depends on what parts are needed.

I can tell you from first hand experience that a rebuild on a 930 can get very pricey(surpassing that 12 cylinder rebuild), especially if it's modified. Problem that I was finding is that many shops had an absurd way of charging more for service based on the value of your car..which is ludicrous.

Actually , Norm, My good friends dad had a new 240Z when we were in highschool. I was a Porsche fan even back then and he knew it. I didn't think much of the 240Z as it was a racing competitor of the 911 back then. One night as stupid teenagers do we were racing another friend in a ford Ranchero around some twisties. He stopped the A got out and told me to drive. I jumped in the drivers seat and was shockingly impressed with the performance of the Z. I did not expect much sue to the lower cost of the Z's at that time.

PS. I hope that uyou have not lost your sense of humor since turning 60.
