Here’s another high-mileage Porsche that looks in excellent condition. Except this time, rather than a standard 911 we have a final-year Porsche 930. It’s had two owners, both in California, and it sounds like the first owner is responsible for most of these miles. We don’t hear much about its maintenance or storage – we are shown a stack of records and it is said to be documented from the beginning – but regardless of the specific details of how it has been cared for we can see that it has been cared for quite well. As an opportunity for a 930 with the one-year-only 5-speed manual this one should come in at a pretty nice value.
CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1989 Porsche 930 Coupe on eBay
Model: 911 Turbo
Engine: 3.3 liter turbocharged flat-6
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 167,600 mi
Price: Reserve Auction
One of 637 produced, the 1989 turbo is the last of the 930 series and only year with the 5 speed manual. This particular car, s/n 202 was sold new at Hoehn Porsche in San Diego to Paula; Paula drove the car regularly and based on my conversation with her it never let her down. The 2nd owner, Uncle Turbo owned the car for a number of years, but kept the mileage to a minimum; it resided north of Los Angeles with it’s second and final owner.
The car is ordered properly as Guards Red over black partial leather. Sport seats with power adjustments, short shift kit, and limited slip differential. The original vin stickers are on the doors, hood, and both fenders, matching of course. Engine is matching numbers to the COA as well.
This particular car drives nicely, handles well, and shifts properly. The car has about 167,600 miles (mostly from the original owner).
