1979 Porsche 930

Let’s try this again: the Porsche 930 we posted on Thursday sold right around the time our post went up, so perhaps this one will remain on auction slightly longer. Here we have a Sahara Diamond Metallic 1979 Porsche 930, located in Maryland, with only 30,813 miles (the seller’s statement that the color is Kunstharzlack is incorrect – that just means the paint is a synthetic enamel). A rare and period-correct color such as this one does not come around too often and with such low mileage there is sure to be a lot of attention paid to this particular car.

1979 Porsche 930 Turbo
VIN Number: 9309801096
Mileage: 30, 813

This car is an excellent example of a low mileage, unrestored, well preserved 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo, in a rare and desirable original color. We believe the German name for this color is Kunstharzlack.
It recently received (September of 2013) a major service, including fluids, belts, valve cover gaskets, and new tail light lenses. It comes with the original airbox, owner’s manual, and some recent repair receipts. It has nearly new Fuzion ZRI tires. The exhaust and radio have been replaced, it has a fairly new Pioneer cd player. It has a sunroof and power windows. Very clean inside and out, runs and drives smoothly.

We apologize for the removal of the original listing, we needed to edit the color information.

Thank you!

I love seeing these cars, especially in such an interesting color. On this 930, the radio and exhaust have been replaced, with the radio now being a modern unit, but if you attend to the questions at the bottom of the listing it’s clear that the seller is not entirely sure of the history of the car, which creates some risk for any potential buyer. It does set up the possibility of there being some value to be had, but if it turns out the car is not as original as it might seem, then that may create some headaches. Currently, bidding is at $45,100 with the reserve still on and that is sure to rise. If everything checks out, the drivetrain is original and mechanically sound, then we could see this car sell in the six figures. With the questions raised, however, who knows, but perhaps with some leg work a diligent buyer could walk off with a little bit of a bargain.

  1. Missing the stone-protector schutz (which gets painted over) on the rear below the bumper valences. Always a good indicator that somebody painted “something”. This is on the rockers and normally travels all the way to the rear of the car.
    Get the paint meter out.
    Hate to see a K&N or anything like it on a car; any car. Ricky Racer BS.
    Wrong muffler. Lots of things to cast doubt.
