1984 Porsche 930 Coupe

With time many things can be mended. So just because a car was not available in our market during its years of production doesn’t mean that those same cars will never be available. Such is the case with the Porsche 930, which took a hiatus from US shores beginning in 1980 only to return in 1986. For fans of Porsche’s top model those years must have seemed an eternity. All we had were posters and our imagination. European owners suffered no such issues and by 1984 the 930 was sending 330 hp to those wide rear tires, making for pulse-quickening performance that required constant attention and offered numerous rewards for those capable of exploiting its massive performance potential. RoW cars possess a certain allure to many buyers as they possess a uniqueness that is difficult to capture and that allure always is enhanced when the car in question was not available in the US market. Thankfully the days of the 930’s absence have passed and those European models now can be found Stateside along with many examples of the original US market cars. Here we have one such European example: a Guards Red 1984 Porsche 930 Coupe, located in New York, with just 34,721 miles on it.

We see European 930s come up for sale fairly often and even with their higher horsepower and claims of a better overall driving experience than US models, I never see them garner as much interest as those US models. Maybe I’m just coming across the wrong ones, but it does make the asking price here appear mighty steep. An opening bid of almost $90K will quickly discourage buyers given that a US model from ’86 or ’87 can be had for less than $80K. The low mileage of this 930 certainly serves as a point in its favor, as does the extra power of the European motor, but we must wonder how much of a premium that deserves. All else equal, is the premium for an ’84 really that much over that of this 1986 930, which with 63K miles sold for $72,298? Comparatively that isn’t a small mileage difference, but for a buyer on the market for a 930 I’m not sure that difference potentially is worth another $30K. Over the long haul I could be wrong, and the demand for almost any air-cooled 911 Turbo has shown little sign of waning, but for now the asking price here seems well above market.

  1. The white 86 was great buy!
    And I agree, this one isn’t worth such a significant premium over market price.
