Looking at their other auctions it looks like they run a little luxury used car lot. I could be wrong. Wouldn’t be the first time.

From a real turbo
Maybe it does have enough get up and go to be credible?

No way that car is worth as much as the RUF that just sold on BAT.
This type of build could be a great tribute if done with a turbo car.
But this one needs a lot of refinement and money to get there.

Someone here in Colorado did one of these, but I think his was an RSR, not a 934, rep. I'll see if I can dig up details when I have more time.

It seems to me, that the "tribute" reduced the value...it didn't add value.

The livery is a wrap, not paint...holes drilled to add flared...original bumpers are gone....interior hugely modified, etc...etc...

The value of something can only be determined by a buyer... to further your first comment, no backdated 911SC should be worth more than a true RUF 930 but BaT has shown us that it can be. There's no logic involved, only emotion.

There was a time not long ago where people were chopping up very nice very old Ferraris to build replicas of even nicer old Ferrari’s

Maybe it still happens, but in that world this 930 is peanuts

Emotion to me went a long way on that 930 RuF on BaT - but everyone pretty much disagreed with me.

My advice to the person who buys this car - strip off everything and bring it back.

It was a mistake.

The backdate and replica movement has gone way too far. This car is irrational. This is one of the most silly and foolish 930 'backdates' I have seen - the detailing just isn't there.

I am not going to even say what I think it's worth. But I will say to the new owner that's trying to sell it - it's worth much less than the original car it's based on.

Ultimately I agree with you Sal, but we are all Porsche enthusiasts in here. Some yokel who walks into an RV store with 200K plus to blow on a recreational vehicle may just walk out with a lipstick'd up 'tribute' Porsche because they always wanted one and don't know much about them except that a 930 is good and they like the race look.

Butt for every seat?

That's a difficult buyer to find. It would be incredible to have a real or replica 934 or 935 to take to the track.
But a replica to drive on the street is too flashy.
Its like a Lamborghini. I'd be embarrassed to be seen in it. Not including a Miura!

I do not think so, this car is only a cosmetic conversion on a stock 930, so It will be slower than a stock 930 at speed because of the flares and air dam, etc.

Is the Mura a lightweight special edition Miura?

If this car could be had under $75k I would love to finish it up properly. The 934 is my single favorite GT racer ever. I have always wanted to build a rep of one.

...
Replica for the street too flashy?

I don't remember reading that rule anywhere

Post pics of 1973 Carrera RSR replicas here...

If your recent RUF valuation on BAT is any indicator I would peg it at $65k for you.

While I see value in a documented RUF 930 conversion like the 2 on BAT, I don't see this tribute adding any value. Doesn't seem to be done very well.

Yeah you're right. I'd peg it at $68K tops.
