I'm scratching my head over the fact they took the short hood and welded on an extension. Seems to me they could have sourced an early long Hood and had better results with less hassle. Just one small observation on an otherwise nice car.

well, you either modify the hood or the front latch panel. six of one, half dozen of the other. if you want a steel hood (that latches) on a backdated car, you have a choice to make.

i did an all steel backdate on my '76 and i opted to modify the hood, keeps the car whole...

Or you install new latches to the existing panel and use an original long hood. That is what I did and it cost less than $40.

trying to get my car to what you have describe here... perhaps with only a 3.6 instead of a 3.8 though

I think 930's are to much like the modern Porsche in this way and people are searching for that old Porsche experience with these NA hot rods.

that is why i sold my 86 930 a couple of years ago and got a M491 to strip out and make into lighter and more focus 3.0RS-SCRS type tribute.

Itís the same style RSR backdate by the same builder as the Orange car that went for $226k last winter. But this one has the engine mods you mentioned. Not by Gamroth but still good power

And one of the reasons I started this thread. So I donít either.

That orange car started life as an m491, had the twin plug engine done by Jae, not Black Forest, and appeared to be finished to a slightky higher standard. Though even thqt car shouldnt be $200k imo

There’s still an ad for it in the classifieds. Love how a $200k car gets the cheapest most failure prone diff on the market...

Car is beautiful and well done, IMHO.
Still, is it $150,000 more fun than a really nice, well done, regular SC?
Apples to oranges for sure, but dollars are dollars.

^^^ That or an 07 GT3RS. Either would be more fun than a backdated toy. IMO

Somebody wants that car.

I'm curious how they got it through CA emissions with no cat on aftermarket MFI.
