1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

Last week I featured a Guards Red 1976 Porsche 930 that probably would have made for an interesting option if the price was right. Unfortunately, the current asking price is not right. Here we have another example, but this one appears to lack the flaws of that Guards Red 930 and as such it likely stands a much better chance of reaching its high asking price. When I came across this 930 I was immediately struck because I could swear I had seen it before, but couldn’t immediately place it. The pictures obviously have been heavily edited with regard to shading and lighting, but there’s a pretty good reason for that: the collection from which this 930 hails was featured in Excellence Magazine’s December 2015 issue and the pictures from that shoot used these same lighting changes. That was the aspect of these pictures that immediately recalled this 930 to mind and I am sure the seller hopes that buyers will recognize the car as being related to those in that article given the praise that was heaped upon the restoration work carried out on those early 930s. As far as I can tell this isn’t one of the three 930s featured in the Excellence article, or at least if it is one of them then the interior has been changed since those cars each had tartan fabric seat inserts. I’m not sure if those seat inserts were original, but I really hope they haven’t been removed because they looked fantastic and provided for a much more interesting interior.

With the photography lighting and the very short description we aren’t provided a lot with which to make an assessment of this 930 and given the mileage I think it will take a while for this one to find a buyer at this price. That said everything does look very well sorted here and both the interior and exterior condition look good. There isn’t anything particularly exciting about the color combination so this one will have to attract buyers through the quality of its restoration. There isn’t anything wrong with that, but again I think it simply lengthens the time it will take to sell. At the end of the day this appears to be a very nice example of an early 930 and it is becoming increasingly difficult to find such machines.

    Looks really nice but every single picture is photoshopped so who knows

    I agree. It is misleading to manipulate images the way so many sellers do these days.

    While they are at it, they need to run that price thru Photoshop and make it more attractive, too.
