Rob Ida 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

Rob Ida 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

I’m not sure it would be possible to pick worse lighting conditions for photographing this 930. I suppose if it were dark that would be worse. Sorry, I just needed to get that out of the way because I’ve seen other pictures of this car and it looked incredible. A non-metallic, almost matte, Silver will never be the most jaw-dropping of paint choices but it can look good when executed well. Here it is executed well. Really well. I won’t pretend to have any special knowledge of this 930, but there is plenty of information out there for those who want to read about this build. I didn’t know it existed until now.

Rob Ida is the primary man behind Rob Ida Concepts and most well known for his work with custom built hot rods. In some cases they are incredibly cool designs with lines that stretch the eye along the car’s length creating a sense of movement even while the car stands still. But he’s also worked on a few Porsches and here we have for sale his 1986 Porsche 930, which was displayed at SEMA 2016. As SEMA cars go this build actually is quite subtle. For the most part it maintains the basic design of the 930 – why mess with a classic, right? – with the only major change being a revised front end created by Rob Ida himself. The overall package is aggressive, but with very clean lines and not over the top. The wheels are staggered 16″ at the rear and 15″ up front in order to produce a subtle rake. Achieving that rake was the primary motivating force guiding his work and the end result is pretty great. Frankly, it’s probably one of the best 930s I’ve seen.

Paint-to-sample 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

Paint-to-sample 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

I post this car knowing full well it must have some sort of problematic history attached to it, but I’ve yet to be able to figure out of what that history consists. Or perhaps the problem simply is that its history has proved too difficult to trace? Either way, this paint-to-sample Salmon Metallic 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera has been for sale for too long at what should be a reasonable price for there not to be something going on in its past that has dissuaded buyers from pursuing it. That it’s currently for sale by a dismantler, while somewhat curious, isn’t of significant concern to me at the moment since I’ve seen this car for sale through other sellers. It was even on auction back in 2015 at the Mecum Anaheim auctions and bid higher than the asking price here so someone was once interested enough. So what’s the situation?

Of course, everything here will come down to what price makes sense. This 930 was originally listed at $150K and that has now dropped to $140K so the seller clearly is willing to negotiate, though how much they’re willing to drop is something we’ll have to see. A full inspection is in need, but this Turbo is said to run with no issues.…

Sonderwunsch 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet

Sonderwunsch 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet

I’ve come upon this one a little late as there isn’t a lot of time left in this auction, but it’s a wild and interesting enough 930 that it’s worth our time. Porsche’s Sonderwunsch (“Special Wishes”) program provides customers with a wide array of features from which they can build themselves a very unique car. In most cases buyers keep things rather sane and choose a specific color for either the exterior or interior, or they select a couple of interesting interior details. Every now and then a customer goes further…quite a bit further. From the outside this 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet shows a few obvious touches with the side strakes and revised front air dam similar to what we see on the Slantnose. When we step into the interior that is when the customization really takes off. Just take a look:

This stunning 1989 Porsche 930 Turbo Cabriolet is one of just a handful of Sonderwunsch Porsche 930 Turbo Cabriolets produced in that model year, and presents beautifully in black with a green custom leather interior. Sonderwunsch translates to special wishes, and serves as Porsche’s in-house customization program that builds bespoke automobiles at the request of the owner. Their range of available services is all inclusive—drivetrain, suspension, exterior or interior—and nothing falls outside the scope of their capability and quality standard.

This 930 Turbo has been factory customized with the following features: custom body work consisting of rear-fender air intakes with horizontal strakes, a special-order (leather-to-sample) green full-leather interior, a center console with extra gauges, leather dash, and additional under-dash glove boxes.

This car has been babied all it’s life.

1979 Porsche 930

1979 Porsche 930

This is a strikingly pretty Porsche 930. Wait…pretty isn’t the word I’m looking for. Let’s just say it’s pretty damn striking and a great looking 930. Guards Red makes for a familiar exterior color on Porsches from the ’80s. It is a less prevalent color on Porsches from the ’70s, but still one we see and recognize almost immediately. Where this 1979 Porsche 930’s Guards Red paint raises the bar is that it has Turbo graphics. Ok, graphics aren’t for everyone and maybe they can be a little bit boy racer, but the Turbo graphics on early 930s are a different animal. They’re subtle. In some cases almost so subtle that you miss that they’re even there. They are a fantastic complement to the black trim accents of the 930 in general. Yes you get whooshing turbo script down the rear quarter, but it’s a car from the ’70s and it just feels right. This is the first time I’ve seen the graphics on a Guards Red 930. I’m sold!

1981 Porsche 930

Enthusiasts never like it when manufacturers remove cars from our market, especially when said car is still being produced in other markets. Frustrations are elevated even further when the car is a higher performance model, as is typically the case. It was precisely this scenario in which Porsche’s US customers found themselves mired in the early-’80s when the 930 was no longer being produced for the US market. At the time, Porsche did not want to commit the money to meet stricter emissions requirements so the model was pulled. It was only in 1986 that it returned. On the bright side, since the 930 still was being produced it was not impossible for US customers to find a way to get one. And, of course, in later years importation also represented an opportuntiy. We have just such an example here with this Black 1981 Porsche 930, located in California, with 49,794 miles on it.

1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

There is always a place for subtlety in the car world and while subtle hardly applies to the Porsche 930, among modified examples it’s a term that can make sense. It’s rare that I feature a modified 930 as most of those I come across appear in questionable condition or simply seem overdone. Here we have a definite exception. This 930’s modifications are limited to the engine so from the outside it appears almost completely original. It also happens to come in a very attractive Dark Blue over Tan leather interior. For fans of dark colors it’s a nice alternative to the more common Black 930. Under the skin, a K27 turbo, upgraded intercooler, and Andial fuel system are said to raise power to “more than” 385 hp. That’s a substantial gain over the stock car’s 282 hp and given the already engaging dynamics of a 930 it’s sure to be extremely attention grabbing for any driver!

Another Kermit? 1976 Porsche 930

Another Kermit? 1976 Porsche 930

It seems just about any early 911 that is all green takes on the name ‘Kermit’. We’ve featured what might best represent the true and original example, a Viper Green Metallic 1979 Porsche 911SC. That 911 borrowed its exterior color from VW and it probably comes closest to mimicking the color of the famous frog. The one we see here uses Porsche’s own version of the similarly named color – Viper Green Diamond Metallic. It’s a little bit darker than Kermit himself, but still possesses that same sense of joy that’s really what makes these so appealing to many. That this version happens to be an early 1976 Porsche 930 should absolutely elevate it in the eyes of many collectors.

1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

Colors I’ve never come across will always draw extra attention. On an early 930, I know I’m hooked. So what do we have here? It’s a 1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera in paint-to-sample Gazelle Metallic with a nice looking and contrasting Dark Brown leather interior. The CoA hasn’t been provided here so we lack that verification, but the rarity of the color seems hard to doubt. And, really, what better way to paint a sports car than as a gazelle? Avoid the lions and you’re sure to make spirited progress! Like the Copper Brown Metallic 930 we saw last week the colors here are very much a period-correct combination, and in this case perhaps even more so. Yet each also possesses enough charm to help it excel even outside of its original vintage. This one is not quite gold, not quite brown. It is not quite like any other color I’ve seen.

I could be totally off base here, and I will admit that there is some legwork and research to be done, but I think this 1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera is priced pretty darn well and could be a really nice value. I’ve featured a few 911 Turbos of late that struck me similarly so perhaps values for even these early Turbos are starting to come down some, but it is certainly worth investigating further. The colors appear to be Copper Brown Metallic over a Cork interior, a very period-correct combination that looks really nice on this 930 and presents well inside and out. We’re told it has been repainted, but the interior is said to be entirely original.

I’ve been on a little run of 911 Turbos lately with most of those coming from the 930 and I always enjoy seeing such well cared for examples come our way. The 930 brings with it a clear ’80s vibe and as a child of that time it’s always nice to return to the poster cars of my youth. These were one of the first cars I’d see on the street and say, “What is that?” Of course, my response today would be no different given how rare it is to come across one on the street. Here we’re going to look at one from the final year of their production prior to the introduction of a new Turbo as part of the 964: a Guards Red 1989 Porsche 930 Coupe, located in Charlotte, with just under 56K miles on it.

1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

Here we have another Porsche 930 Coupe, in certain ways similar to the Guards Red 930 we featured earlier in the week in that it’s from around the time when Porsche returned the model to the US market and appears to me to be a pretty reasonable value. However, this one brings with it one serious distinction: it’s paint-to-sample Garnet Red Metallic over a really nicely contrasting Cashmere Beige and Burgundy interior. The mileage is quite reasonable at 40,700 as well! This one could be a good example of a 930 that strikes the right balance between collector and driver. Meaning: it’s low enough miles and interesting enough that collectors should take notice, but has enough miles that it can be used (at least sparingly) without harming its value. Not bad at all.

What a difference a few miles makes, right? That’s a slight understatement regarding the mileage, but if we compare this Guards Red 1987 Porsche 930 Coupe with the Moss Green Metallic 930 Coupe featured last week we quickly notice the significant price difference between the two cars. Much of that difference comes down to their relative mileage, and some of it comes down to the much more unique color combination of the green one. Still, this 930 looks good enough in its own right and for essentially half the price it certainly appears to be a pretty nice value.

1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

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.

Minerva Blue 1978 Porsche 930

Minerva Blue 1978 Porsche 930

I’m pretty much at a point where a Minerva Blue Metallic Porsche is an automatic feature for me. When that wonderful blue exterior is contrasted with a Cork interior, then I can’t feature it quickly enough. That’s exactly what we have with this 1978 Porsche 930 and like other such combinations we have seen, the appearance is phenomenal. 1978 marked one of the few model years of significant change for the 930. Most notably it brought an increase in displacement, now up to 3.3 liters from the 3.0 liter flat-six that had served during it’s first two years. The new engine also brought with it an air-to-air intercooler and the necessary redesign of the whale tail spoiler so as to better allow for airflow into that intercooler. Naturally those changes brought with them increased horsepower raising those levels to 265 hp (up from 245 hp) for U.S. models. Even though they are more powerful the ’78 and ’79 model year 930s don’t typically command higher values than their earlier 3.0 liter counterparts. The seller here seems intent on challenging that generally accepted notion.

Take a beautiful blue car and place it next to the ocean (or any large body of water) and I will be attracted to it like a moth to a flame. It is a combination of color and environment that really speaks to me even if there is a certain monochromatic quality to the entire presentation. As should now be obvious my attraction to this 1979 Porsche 930 was kindled through just such an arrangement. The sky, the waves, the car. It all looks so inviting. Of course, once you’ve strapped yourself into this 930, fired up the engine, and attacked the local coast road the experience then takes on an entirely different dimension. That’s right where my mind is transported after taking in the still photos. It’s the total experience captured in a single photograph.
