Looking for an education

Plus itís too cold to go out and do anything.

The 76 turbo north of the border.

https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/dealer/porsche/930/1899242.html

What would that be worth if it were a few hundred miles south?
Or more pertinently given the current market is it a decent price? Its red, which isnít my first choice and itís obviously not cheap because itís been there for quite a while. We just covered that buyers get hammered because no one wants to import from Canada too, but Iím not as far away as someone in Texas, say.

Sadly, there arenít a lot of 76s to compare against.

Iíd go look at a modded one if I could find a nice one (no not that white thing at rmc - I couldnít afford to put the bodywork right), but if itís to be an aircooled I want a 76.

Why does it matter that it’s a 76 if you’d be happy with a modded one? A big piece of the price bump and collectibility requires a stock 3l lump in the car. If you want a modified one going a few years newer will save you tens of thousands of dollars on purchase price.

Itís not collectibility. Itís age.
Needs to be 76 or earlier or Iíd just go look at 505s.
Hell Iíd take a 70 with an engine swap.

These are the manliest, rudest, unfiltered porsche that will ever be! I’ve seen the crowds 930s draw at car shows.. young old alike. 912s 911s 356s 991s they will walk right past.. A 930 really captured the public’s imagination like no other porsche before or since.

These early 930 turbos just get better with age. 993 and 964 turbos were and are engineering marvels but neither has or will age as well as the original 930 turbos.

Would anyone here disagree that NO porsche before or since has captured the public’s imagination like the 930 did so unbelievably!

TV shows
Motion pictures
Posters
Folders
Artwork
Toys

List goes on and on and on..

Market is as low as it will ever be at this point.. 930s are the smartest buys RIGHT NOW!!!!

Kindest Regards,

Because unfortunately that car has been repainted from itís original color. Albeit it looks very nice but it does hurt the value.

Fixed it It's overpriced with the repaint to GR and a repaint at 40k make me think the miles are incorrect too.

I don't think so. As others stated, repaint from original mahogany metallic. Also doubt there are service documents verifying the mileage on that example or they would of mentioned it in the ad.

Here's RM auction result.

Nice looking car and a significant piece of Porsche history. Rather tepid performance by modern standards, but folks no longer buy these for their awesome performance.

Not worth anywhere near that price to me but... If you MUST have it, anything goes.

As an owner of a 77 930 I can attest that the early 930ís are not about performance when compared to modern standard but as far as fun goes, these early cars fit the bill...at least for me. Yes Iíve made some small upgrades but even in stock form it fills the fun factor. No need to hit 120 mph just so one can there woodie on...80-100mph feels fast enough. The cars also exude character...much that is missing in todayís modern cars.

I've owned a few of these, great cars, exhaust mods will really wake up the performance.
