Amidst all of the wild excess of the Slantnose, which we’ve featured extensively of late, remains the heart of the beast: the Porsche 930. No matter how often we profile much more rare variants the original car invariably draws us back and we remember why many of those variants sprouted up in the first place. The 930 was a great car that combined style and performance and while the standard car is not as wild looking as the Slantnose it’s not exactly a Beige Camry either. The widened rear arches and that massive spoiler will stand out at any car show and the dynamic capabilities of the car still require a diligent driver. The particular example featured here is a RoW 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo located in Indiana with 51,561 miles.

Price: Reserve Auction
1979 Row Porsche 930. This car has no sunroof and is in original condition. Clean car owned for 14 years. This car is in collectors condition and is 100% original. You will notice that the windshield wipers are not on car. They are being restored and should be back in the coming month. This car comes with 14k in receipts.
That this is a RoW car perhaps makes it slightly more interesting, though, to my knowledge, there aren’t significant differences between the various cars produced that year so I’m not sure that fact will drive the price much here. Hagerty shows a significant rise in 930 values over the last 6 months and the opening bid price here would be in line with those numbers (if a bit on the high end). The problem, however, is that we haven’t actually seen those sorts of prices materialize for the cars we’ve come across. All of that is to say that I don’t see this car hitting its reserve given the $85K opening bid set by the seller. This car should find a home though. It looks to be in very good shape and the mileage is pretty low, so some collector will surely scoop it up, it just probably won’t be for the price this auction is attempting to achieve.
