Bye Bye 930 - Data Point

Sold the 79 930 to finally slim down. Petrol blue/cork; 44k miles. Nice car. Sold in the $90s and I thought it was market correct. I could have wanted more but it would have sat longer....I felt it was time to move on. I bought the 930 in 2011, and was able to recoup what I bought it for, and all I spent on repairs/maintenance since I purchased it. I will use the rest of the "upside" from the sale to buy my wife a new car, probably a new Outback. I will drive her old CRV as a DD, and start to sympathetically restore the CRX I bought new in 88. I my sell the TR6 but those topics are for another forum...

Congrats.

Petrol Blue is an awesome color and cork is a very nice interior. My ultimate color combo would be Petrol Blue w/ light red but Porsche may have never fitted a car with this color combo.

Minerva Blue with red interior.... is it out there

That car was amazing. Wanted to buy it so bad. I grew up five miles from the shop advertising it.

The car ran and sounded great with the mild engine upgrades (k27, 964 cams, BB Headers, open dump pipe). it was a car you could just get in and drive and not really worry about adding more miles. the color was huge plus and why it sold as quick as it did. it is actually the reason in bought it as I was focusing on a 3.0 TC (when no one wanted them) when I stumbled on it and bought due to the color. I decided to consign with Dick Barbour. He is a very nice man and very humble. I actually felt honored to meet and do business with him.

Cars you have left to mess with are not too great, you need another 911.

I still have my 88 cab and will keep it. CRX is still a hoot to drive.

Well I ask myself the same question. As of now basically because I bought it about 20 years ago. My wife loves riding in it especially with the top down in the mountains and frankly so do i. I only drive it with the top down so essentially it is a 3 season car. If I came across a really unique g body targa to replace it then I may sell the cab and buy it then would drive it also in colder weather. The 930 was an amazing car to drive but I was driving it much less as there were only certain times I could drive it in Atlanta. I'll be 60 in 5 months and my car hobby has shifted towards a different direction. Last night my wife asked me if I missed the 930 and I said yes but it was time to move on.

Why a cab, cause when you’re driving you hear the engine, you get the wind, you get the stars in the sky. In daylight on the Blue Ridge Parkway, you look up and see the trees, the mountains. Why a coupe? Something for everyone!

Amen...and my wife loves it.....she named the cab Bridgett.

I think the CRX Si sounds pretty cool also. And he’s owned it since new.

Listen

My question was not to bash a Cab. I just asked because I sold my 78 930 last month. So looking for other cars, never had a Cab, but I see them sometimes $10-30k less then Coupes.
So I was looking at a 964 Cab...they made over 2600. But the coupe was only 1200, big difference, and with Porsche geeks they all want Coupes. So thinking ��

Bye Bye 930 - Data Point

Nice 930!!

Barrett Jackson Scottsdale 2020 just sold a 1979 930 RoW with 44,000 miles lot 1145.1 for $145,000

Sounds like yours was one I would consider very nice. I would have thought $100,000 would have been easily achieved but sounds like you got close to that.

In 10 years these prices will look cheap! However at the rate new cars are going up in MSRP itís not inconceivable that in 10 years a nice new premium car could eclipse six figures!

I do feel like a 930 is as solid of investment in the porsche collector world below $200,000 as can be!

Sounds good to me Now I won't feel guilty about not wanting to sell mine for awhile. Let's see, on average $200K times 12 = yiippppeeeee. Of course I have sold many exotic's that if I had today's value knowledge and I had kept, I would get much more. But more importantly I like my 930's way more than those I sold, and still do.

the CRX is an amazing car. its a nimble point and shoot car. I have many folks stop and talk to me about it, a lot telling stories of when they had one.....some being current P car owners. I told my wife when I die she won't need to buy a casket. she can just drain the fluids, recline the front seat, put me in it, open the sunroof for the viewing, then when it's time close the sunroof, drop the car in the ground and cover it up. Until that day.....

I know thatís true. Hondaís from the 80s to 90s were such good cars. Simple, basic, well-built and fun to drive. And CRXs are so lightweight, close to 914 weight.

Iíve got a 90 Prelude Si. Completely stock, original paint, all records from new. I have similar experiences with random people stopping to talk about it. Itís surprising but they are becoming classics to a new generation.
