Nick, please return to this thread and report as to how much it costs to keep that fine specimen on the road. I've always wanted to buy one, but thought the cost of ownership would be far too much to make it worth the purchase.

Randall,

Yeah, first thing I asked him - "Did you get a PPI ?" - No

I told him I hope he has a lot of money in the bank allocated for maintenance / repairs...

Sweet car, though.

Nick

Those are great cars, though now they are 20 years old, and the air cooled motors are clearly in demand, the guys who really know how to work on them are not cheap, and thus keeping these older beasts running can be quite expensive.

GREAT cars though!

Ha ha Ha! I am kidding! You don't see those whale tails anymore...
This car is a real throw back. I'm sure if your friend dumps ALLOT of money into it, puts the Fuchs wheels back on it, etc. he could flip it for a pretty penny. Turbos are always the most coveted.

Perfectlap, I almost posted to explain what it was, then I figured ( hoped ) you were kidding

DJ, didn't get to go for a ride, but it sounded pretty sweet when he took off.

Chills, I think he said it was a 1986...

( I know it is older than a 1989 because it has a four speed )

BTW - He told me he is looking for Fuchs to replace the BBS rims.

Nick

All 930s have turbochargers, so you don't call it a '930 Turbo', you just call it a 930.


Badass ride!

'86 was a good vintage. I love that body style. That is what a Porsche is supposed to look like.

Do my eyes deceive me or does the back of that thing say RUF turbo on it? What RUF mods does it have?

Wow, fishage, good eyes !

Yes, it has RUF badges on the front and rear.

Couldn't tell you what all has been done to the car, though

Sorry but I hate to say this but with only 300 hp theres NO WAY that thing goes 0-60 in 4.6 seconds. A new boxster S has 295 hp and its not anywhere close to 4.6 secs. It has 20 year old technology. Not to mention its only a 4 speed.

^yeah sub five second 0-60 is a bit optimistic.
But driving this car fast takes brass ones. For its short wheel base its still allot of power over the rears...keeping it in the powerband without some sharp hands means you can spin it easy....no air bags in that puppy.

I always think of the slant noses when I see this car. I think it was one of the Transformers cartoon character back in the mid 80's. bingo
