Moss Green Metallic 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

At the end of last week I closed with a Marine Blue over Linen 930, a color combination both attractive and rare. Perhaps even more rare than we might first think. I wasn’t sure the value was quite right, but the car itself looked really nice.

Here I will continue along those same lines with another darker metallic exterior that we rarely see. The mileage is a good bit lower and I suspect the price will be a good bit higher. Whether the value again is off remains to be seen, but this 930 itself looks in great shape and will certainly attract attention. This is a Moss Green Metallic 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe, located in St. Louis, with a contrasting dark green and black interior and just 19,810 miles on it.

You are viewing a 1986 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe (930) in Moss Green Metallic over Dark Green and Black with just 19,810 miles driven from new.

This stunning 930 Turbo is the genuine article and in its original and factory stock configuration.

It not only looks stunning but it drives exactly as designed, we know of no faults or issues with this car.

With us on consignment from a much valued client of ours, we did re-charge the air conditioning system and mount and balance 4 new Bridgestone Potenza tires for him this August and it hasn’t covered 50 miles since.

It also had the best Ceramic Pro paint treatment applied to the stunning original paintwork at this time (a $2,200 value) which comes with a lifetime warranty.

1988 Porsche 930 Coupe

I’m going to take a short break from my value shopping to present a 930 that I like quite a bit. It is not a good value. It is, however, a color combination I like a lot and don’t see that often.

Here we have a Marine Blue Metallic 1988 Porsche 930 Coupe, located in Kentucky, with what I believe is a Linen leather interior and 53,285 miles on it. The ad is very short on the details and while I don’t mind a concise ad a 50K mile 930 isn’t really a candidate for such a lack. So there’s legwork to be done on the part of any interested buyer, but it’s a really attractive car.

This is a beautiful 1988 Porsche 930 Turbo. Low mileage at 53,285. Runs and drives great. Exterior is a rare marine blau metallic. Interior shows normal wear for its age. This is a very special car and will not last long!

Every time I see a Linen interior I wonder if it’s a complete pain to keep clean. Some of the photos here kind of show the sort of thing that would worry me! Generally speaking this interior looks quite good and in good shape. There don’t appear to be any major problems like tears, scuffs, or cracks in the dash. It looks very clean. But a light colored interior like this will show dirt and imperfections much more than darker colors, even much more than tan, and here we see the evidence of that. Given how close up the pictures appear to be I don’t think it’s the sort of thing we’d get too upset about.…

Baltic Blue 1989 Porsche 930 Coupe

This is how I like to see a car presented. Especially when the asking price is fairly high. The text provides details on the seller’s ownership, the current mechanical state of the car, and any details that most buyers would be interested to know. That is followed by a large array of pictures showing both exterior and interior from a distance and then close up. We get the details and we get the full view. Could we ask for more? Of course we could, but there is enough here that any interested buyer will have the necessary information to feel like further investigation will be worthwhile. Or, if you wanted to jump right in, I think you’d probably feel pretty confident in doing so after little more than a phone call to the seller.

So let’s look at what we have: a Baltic Blue Metallic 1989 Porsche 930 Coupe, located in Texas, with Cashmere Beige interior and just 35,313 miles on it. I do not need to tell you how desirable an ’89 930 is and finding one in this condition and with this mileage just raises the bar even more. Oh, and the color is pretty rare too!

Feature Listing: 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet

At the end of my post yesterday of a Carrera Targa Supersport I mentioned that the asking price was such that you could pretty easily find yourself an actual Porsche 930 in very nice condition for less money. Lo and behold we just so happened to receive this 930 for a feature and I think it does a pretty good job of demonstrating what I discussed with the Targa Supersport. I fully admit it’s an apples to oranges comparison (different market, different model, different mileage, etc.), it just struck me as nice and timely.

Anyway, let’s get to it:

Here we have a Grand Prix White 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet with 64,500 miles on it. An ’89 930 always gets our attention. As the only year the 930 came equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission these are incredibly desirable and when one is in good condition it’s always worth further investigation. This one even has a very subtle and unique attribute: Porsche script cloth seat inserts. The first I’ve seen!

More and more enthusiasts are beginning to see not only what wonderful cars the 930s are to drive, but also how important they are to the history of the 911.

Peter Gregg’s 1978 Porsche 930

This Porsche 930 has two very unique features about it and I suspect just how much people care about each will be pretty divergent. Ultimately, a sale likely will be predicated on that rare individual who prizes both unique features fairly highly. The first “feature” should be obvious from the title. This 930 is said to have originally belonged to Peter Gregg, former Porsche racing driver and founder of Brumos Racing. Brumos has had a long and distinguished history with Porsche and Gregg himself was a distinguished driver in the ’70s. For some these are merely fun facts that add little value to the car. For others, they are the kind of facts that change a car from something that looks pretty nice to something that’s special. A collector’s piece.

The second unique feature is of the more typical variety, but a very rare version: the interior of this 930 is leather-to-sample with Dr. Fuhrmann seats. Fuhrmann seats are extremely rare in a 930. They’re also really strange looking, but ultimately it is their rarity that will win the day here. Combined these two features make for one very special 930. At least if you care about these things.

This 930 Turbo is so rare! It was previously owned by Peter Gregg, the founder of Brumos Porsche. The car was awarded to Gregg after winning the 1978 24 Hours of Daytona, and acquired by Auto Palace in 2015 from a private collection. The exterior of the 930 Turbo is Grand Prix White the interior is a leather-to-sample, with the rare factory Dr. Fuhrmann Interior and Seat option. Extensive service records are present for the vehicle.

1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe

I know not everyone likes these cars. When you take a shape as iconic and as loved as that of the 911 and you alter its profile there are going to be those who do not share much enthusiasm for such a creation. When the alteration is to perhaps the most recognizable portion of that original design, well, then you really might engender divisiveness. That’s pretty much exactly what the Slantnose option does to the 911.

The round headlights projecting forward from the hood are now gone in favor of a more sloped front borrowed from the 935. That the Slantnose is borrowed from what was itself an iconic Porsche does help take the sting away for those who prefer the original 911 design. Still, not everyone is a fan. I, however, am a fan, especially of the Coupe where all of the lines work well together. As part of the ’80s and the sometimes wild designs we saw on cars of that day the Slantnose fits in quite well and it absolutely stands out as a car from that period. It may not entirely look like a 911, but there’s still no mistaking it. Here we have a factory example: a Guards Red 1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe, located in New York, with just under 50K miles on it.

Feature Listing: 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo

Yesterday we presented a very nice 993 twin-turbo and in that post I spoke of my conflicting desires between those beautiful 993s and the original Turbo, the 930. So let’s turn our attention to the 930 as this presents us a nice opportunity for comparison. This triple Black 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe is offered by the same seller as the 993, which means the condition of the car is good and the price sits on the more reasonable side when factoring in condition and mileage. As we’ve discussed quite a bit on these pages the 930 market definitely has moved downward for all but the best cars, but the desirability of the model itself remains strong. There are a lot of them out there with sub-$100K price tags so it takes very low miles or rare colors/options to really attract notice. I do think that makes this the tougher sell of the two cars, but for someone like me, whose heart remains strongly tied to these iconic ’80s Turbos, that allure might be too strong to overcome, tempting us toward the dark side.…

1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

I found this too funny to pass by. There are many ways to advertise a car, and especially on a site like eBay when you can scroll through hundreds of thumbnails you need something to get readers to pause during that initial view and want to take a second look. With little space available, most sellers say the typical things, sometimes there’s very useful information like “paint to sample” or “special order” (which, of course, may or may not be true), and then there is this one. “Beautiful carpets!” (I’ve ignored the typo) I must say that’s not the typical selling point, but it made me laugh and look more closely at this Venetian Blue Metallic 1987 Porsche 930 Coupe. And, hey, the carpets do look great!

1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

I’ve featured a few white 911s over the past weeks and I will return to that theme here with this Grand Prix White 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe. Truth be told, this one is far more about the interior than it is the white exterior. And boy does that interior create contrast! It is a to-sample Lobster Red leatherette. Porsche has offered plenty of bright red interior colors over the years and I think Lobster comes across as the brightest. Perhaps most gaudy is a better expression? Regardless, there is a hint of orange to the color – hence the name Lobster – that takes the shade to another level as compared with Can-can Red or Lipstick Red, which are really just a deep red. While all red interiors can be a little divisive, I would imagine Lobster Red is the most so. Here, where it’s contrasted with a white exterior, the almost blinding nature of the color really shows!

1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet with 1,313 miles

Ah, the price you pay for low mileage. I come across a lot of cars with seemingly outrageous price tags. Most are good for a chuckle and then I move on to the next car. Some are just confusing. Others make me pause and wonder. Those are usually the cars actually possessing a reason for that high price. In every case, however, they are something to check out just to figure out what is going on. The situation with this car, a 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet with a mere 1,313 miles on the clock, is a straightforward confluence of features. Ultra-low mileage, final-year of the 930, and the only year the 930 came equipped with a 5-speed transmission. It even comes in a nice color, though not one that is especially rare. The question is not whether a high price is warranted, but rather how high a price. Perhaps here we’ll find out.

As we’ve all become aware, the air-cooled 911 market is not what it used to be. However, there has been some evidence that very rare and/or low-mileage examples have been spared from the market’s recession. But even those cars aren’t hitting insane prices so I do wonder whether this one will have a shot. So about this one. Let’s assume the appropriate documentation exists to validate the mileage and other aspects of its history. Without that the price has no chance. Last year this car was bid to $275K when on auction at Mecum Monterey. That’s still a good bit away from this asking price and with the market cooling I don’t know if we can expect more.…
