1983 Porsche 930

I’m going to get back to basics today with this Black 1983 Porsche 930, located in Boston, with 48,997 miles on it. A Black 930 is a frequent resident of these pages and even for someone like me who really enjoys brightly colored cars these still possess their own singular allure. Of course, the 930 itself is far from basic machinery and provides a combination of performance and luxury rivaled by few cars in its day. While they are eclipsed by modern supercars in each regard they possess a raw ferocity that commands a driver’s attention and rewards those who master their sometimes difficult dynamics. A heavy does of rear power will do that. This particular 930 was never available in the US market due to Porsche ceasing to send them over from 1980-1985. But examples from those years can be had now and this one looks in nice shape.

For some reason the “Antique” license plate seen here makes me chuckle. A 930 just isn’t what springs to mind when I think of an antique car. I know these designations are determined by age rather than model type, but I still find it funny. Anyway, this 930 presents quite well and looks to be a very nice example of a low-mileage original car and while the color combination isn’t rare by any means it remains a combination desired by many. I will admit I’m having some trouble figuring out the 930 market. Or at least I’m having trouble correlating many of the auctions I’m seeing with some reported values. According to Hagerty, this 930 is probably a bargain at $130K. However, I’m not really seeing the prices quoted by Hagerty reflected in the auctions I’ve followed. This is especially true for 930s produced in the ’80s. Early examples, particularly the 3.0-liter cars, seem to be pulling these high numbers, but once we get into the ’80s things begin to diverge. I don’t have an answer as to why that is. As such, I don’t have a good sense of where this 930 should be valued. My instinct tells me it’s priced at the high end of the market for an ’83 930. Perhaps I’m mistaken and Hagerty is correct, in which case someone should buy this immediately. It’s something we’ll continue to have our eye on and I’ll watch this one in particular.

  1. The market for many of the 80s/90s European cars topped out last year. Prices are down 20-30% based on auction results.
