Ď76 turbo Feeler..

I bought this turbo off a fellow pelican 2 years ago.. at the time it had a very powerful 3.3 in it as well as the original case on the shelf. I drove it pretty hard until the oil pressure started to drop consistently and wanting to er on the side of caution I sent it back to the mechanic who had done the swap to put it back to original 3.0
I consider this car a savings account i could enjoy knowing i would sell it as soon as a building project started and i needed to capitalize.
Unfortunately the car languished at the mechanics and finally after 11 months it’s done
My project breaks ground in a month so I am thinking it’s time to sell.
My question is should i start here or just go straight to BaT?
I used to love the classified here before they changed the rules and a dialogue would develop.. now Bat seems the only place to offer that kind of exchange..
I love this car and don’t really want to anonymously put it up on the block...
here are the specifics. I would be curious on the forums thoughts on a good starting point price wise too..
1976 Porsche Turbo Carrera.
vin # 930680034 one of the very earliest turbos imported into the USA.
- no accident history
- silver / russet red. twenty year old repaint in B- condition, some scratches, chips and dings. One or two small rust bubbles.
- matching numbers 3.0 liter motor and 4 speed manual transmission confirmed by PPS. Both rebuilt by Farmers Automotive master mechanic Bob Farmer less then 400 miles ago. 116,000 shown.
- flow benched heads with DHL headers approximate HP 330.
- upgraded torsion and sway bars.
- boxter brakes up front.
- no heat, original dealer installed A/c removed and kept.
- period correct sport seats newly recovered. Original sofa seats kept. dash and interior fair to good condition. sun visors puffy, headliner fair condition.
- sunroof.
- 1973 “fatty” symmetric steering wheel newly recovered. original kept.
- full records back to original window sticker.
- all manuals and correct tool kit. no spare or compressor.
- correct 1975 fuchs 7’s and 8’s Rsr finish perfect condition. also have 9/15” 1973 rsr rears.
Thanks!
Redgard

I’m confused why you added the WP0 to your VIN? Sounds like a wonderful car

Assuming you have all of the hard to find 1976 turbo carrera specific parts for interior and engine; Hagerty lists the average value for a 1976 930 turbo carrera as $122,000. With engine and transmission rebuilt add $30,000. For interior and paint subtract $40,000, which gives about $112,000, approximately. Soooo...$100,000 to $120,000, give or take $10,000.

You've got visible rust, which will scare some people off, and could be a big hit to price. On the other hand, it's a 76 Turbo, and there aren't a lot of '76 Turbos.

I'd be on the lower end of Rahl's estimate. You could sell the 3.3 turbo motor for at least $10k as a running core.

Nice car; wish I wanted a minor project. It would be fun sorting this car.

These cars were galvanized at this point in porsche history so i don’t think the two spots of rust will be a huge draw back to a knowledgeable buyer..also someone who wanted to give this the ‘A’ level paint job the car deserves would take it to bare metal anyway.
I checked the Early Turbo registry and this car was one of the first ten porsche turbos imported into the USA..

1976 was before Porsche started galvanizing their cars.

im not so sure your right.. 1976 was the first year the entire car’s were..
https://rennlist.com/forums/911-forum/567159-what-year-did-they-start-zinc-coating.html

"Galvanized steel was in use since the 1971 models, for body parts particularly exposed to rust, but from 1976 models on the entire body was assembled from steel sheet protected on both faces by a layer of zinc the thickness of which varies from 10-20 Thousands of a millimeter, according to the conditions to which it was to be exposed. Only, and for one year only, the roof was not galvanized because units of that size were not available at the time. Porsche was the first car manufacturer in the world to offer such comprehensive rust protection and it took 10 years for another -- Audi -- to follow." Paul Frere; Porsche 911 Story, pg 201

Maybe you’re right, I thought it was 1978.

Hagerty prices for 3.0 Turbos correctly reflect the downward trend, but they are still 15-20% too high, in my opinion. This is based on my personal experience in a transaction within the past year.

As I said in your other thread, just not enough detail. Show interior pics. Show undercarriage. That rust looks like unrepaired crash damage in this photo. And the tread on the tires make it look neglected. No doubt you can doll it up for sale if you go that route, but right now I think the $100k+ numbers being tossed around here are a joke. I’m more in line with D’s $70k number in your other thread. That doesn’t count selling the 3.3 by itself as another transaction.

if this was the case of a normal 930 (of which thousands were made a year for over a decade 78-89..23,200 total units) I might agree, but Turbo Carreras were made for just three years for a total world production of 2813 units.

Ď76 turbo Feeler..

75 and 76 have gotten the lions share at auction when it comes to premium pricing.
I donít know the reason but 77 doesnít get the same love unless you have a special color.

You obviously arenít getting the answer you want now.
Disappointment is in your future.
