For a few brief years (or perhaps an eternity depending upon your perspective), the 911 Turbo was not offered in the US market because of Porsche’s hesitance to meet the US’s more stringent emission requirements. Most of the rest of the world still had the 930 though, some of those have made their way to our shores and we seem to increasingly come across them for sale. For the most part, RoW cars show few differences from what was offered in the US once they returned here. Notable exceptions are the rear bumperettes, which are narrower on RoW cars, and the front headlamps. I always find the US headlamp surrounds to give those cars a little bit of a melancholy look, versus the happier, upbeat, appearance of the RoW cars (if you’ll pardon the anthropomorphizing). All of this brings us to the car featured here: an India Red 1985 Porsche 930, located in Phoenix, that has seen 48,000 miles.

This particular 930 appears to have the Euro headlamps, but the US bumperettes. That’s probably something worth inquiring about just to make sure there’s nothing lurking in the car’s history, but it may be nothing of much significance. Everything else looks in very good order, though this isn’t a completely original car as it seems to have had some engine work done during a recent rebuild. Assuming good mechanical condition, that could be a plus since that may hold down the price slightly while still providing for a fantastic driving experience. Bidding currently sits at $49,620 with 4 days to go, which on its own would be a pretty good price, but we can probably assume the reserve sits right around the $64,995 asking price.
