1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

Yesterday Andy featured a very interesting and original green on green early 928. It’s the sort of period-correct combination that we’d expect in the ’70s. Here we’re going to step out of the ’70s and raise the performance bar quite a bit, but retain that green on green profile. Unlike the 928, whose lighter Olive Green interior provided some contrast, this 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe has stayed on the darker side of the spectrum for both the interior and exterior. It’s certainly more monochromatic than the 928, but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a light green interior I’ve liked so monotony aside, I prefer the combination here. The colors are Moss Green Metallic over Dark Green and, probably unsurprisingly, I can’t say I’ve come across another like it.

I’ve said before that with a green exterior I prefer a tan interior and that is no different here, but purely for rarity this combination certainly stands ahead of the prettier possibilities. The current owner is short term, but its first owner was not, having owned this 930 up to 2014. Thus, though we aren’t provided much in the way of documentation here the hope would be that plenty exists. What we are told is that outside of its exhaust tip (and the factory tip does come with the car) everything is original and from what we can see that appears to be the case. And at 19K miles, it’s one of the lower mileage 930s we’re going to come across. Normally an ’86 930 isn’t what I’d look to for a higher-dollar example, but this one has enough rare attributes in its favor that the high asking price is to be expected. Even at $150K I’m not sure this one is overpriced. A year ago this 930 might have sold almost immediately, but right now it’s a tougher market. Still I think the price is more than fair and while green on green isn’t everyone’s cup of tea it’s a rare and interesting enough combination that when combined with originality and low miles should make this 930 quite desirable.

  1. Great looking car. Couple of big red flags… The cars been painted. Looking at the door jamb sticker there are paint line on it that are clearly not factory.

    In Aug of 1998 the car was reported to have 19,308 mile.
    In Aug of 2008 the car was reported to have 19,026 miles
    In Oct of 2008 the car was reported to have 19,035 miles

    Now it shows 19k and change.

    I would need some serious docs to show whats going on miles wise on the car before I bid.

  2. I looked at the red one. On my first pass nothing strikes me as out of the ordinary. IIRC this car has been offered around recently. The history checks out fine too. Its the price thats going to hold it back. Sure the interior is unique, but its a hard sell. This car looks better than just a driver and the miles are a bit on the low side to be a total driver. The problem is its competing in the market place with 930’s which have 15 or 20k more miles and can be bought for $80k bucks or there about.

    IMO the green car is more interesting but I emailed the seller with regards to the obvious paint work and miles issues and got no reply.

  3. Hey Rob – not to be too pedantic, but in your summary section, shouldn’t the Price be “BIN $150,000” instead of “Reserve Auction”? The $150K (while alluded to in your text) is more informative, agree?

  4. You are correct and I have updated it. Sometimes I get used to entering things as a reserve auction and gloss over it when editing. Thanks for the catch!
