1988 Porsche 930 Cabriolet

Contrasts: they don’t always work, but when they do they create something that is much more interesting than the norm. I think we see this a lot with modified cars where contrasts in style become much more prevalent. With factory cars these contrasts usually come about through color combinations between the interior and exterior, but even more so when those colors appear to contrast with the ethos of the car itself. That is what we have here. The 930 needs little introduction. As Porsche’s turbocharged rear-engine Goliath it provided rewards to those able to master its dynamics and treachery to those who could not. Subtle is probably the last adjective that might be used about it. In neither appearance nor performance is it anything approaching subtle. Cassis Red Metallic seems a near opposite. A color that is both vibrant and also soft that may even suggest playfulness. It’s beautiful in a way that belies the nature of the 930. When combined we get a stark contrast, one that has been found on many Porsches before and after it and which remains one of my favorite hallmarks of the brand. Does it work? That will be up to individual buyers. But it’s about as far from triple black – the über aggressive alternative – that we can get.

The pictures appear a bit touched up, but this is one of the better looking examples of Cassis Red I can recall seeing. It is one of the few we’ve seen on the 930 and the only one I’ve seen with color-matching wheels. With regard to those wheels, I’m not sure I’m sold on them. In some of the pictures I love the look and in others it seems like a little too much and I wonder if I’d prefer the more common Black Fuchs. That this is a Cabriolet perhaps lends itself to the Cassis Red wheels since we also get a peek at the Burgundy interior. Regardless of your specific tastes in this regard, the color itself is unique and always a favorite. It works particularly well on the 930 as it helps to accentuate the wider rear and that wider stance provides a note of aggression juxtaposed with the less aggressive exterior color. Bidding remains on the reasonable end at $72,922, but unsurprisingly that is not enough to reach the reserve. While bidding may not get there I’m going to assume that the reserve is likely above six figures, but we’ll have to see.
