1988 Porsche 930 Coupe

Last week I featured a Grand Prix White 911 Turbo 3.6 and talked about how the 964 is one of the models I particularly enjoy in white. With this Grand Prix White 1988 Porsche 930 Coupe I think we see a nice contrast in the way the two models showcase that paint. For me, the 964 shows much better for reasons I probably couldn’t explain, but I think much of it comes down to the prevalence of the black trim on each model. Others may have the opposite reaction; I’ve found that a white exterior tends to do that with cars. With their respective interiors we have a much different story. I love the contrast of the Burgundy interior on this 930. It works phenomenally with the Grand Prix White exterior and is far superior to the boring Grey we saw on the 964. So with both Turbos we have a little bit of a mixed bag, at least regarding the exterior and interior colors. Returning to this 930, the mileage here is reasonable for its age, though higher than most 930s we come across. So long as it has been well maintained that shouldn’t be of too much concern and should allow for it to sell at a much more reasonable price than lower-mileage examples.

Now available from CPR Classic Sales is this lovely 1988 Porsche 930 turbo. The car is a very nicely kept cosmetically completely original car that was always garaged by its original owner in Stanford California until it made its way to our showroom.

Two years before we received the car, the engine was dissembled and completely overhauled and upgraded with blueprinting and balancing, upgraded turbo internals and a full “RUF” intercooler system by European Motorsports. Needless to say this car is an absolute rocket ship that is waiting for its next driving enthusiast!

Since arriving to CPR the car has received a full service and mechanical inspection. The steering wheel is also being recovered.

If you’re looking for a 930 turbo that is an absolute dream to drive and something you won’t overly worry about getting dirty or putting miles on, this is the car for you. Perfect for Porsche Driving events and road trips, this turbo begs to be driven. Priced to sell, don’t miss this lovely 930.

Please call (760) 723-8900 with questions. This vehicle is also being sold locally.


The ad appears to suggest this is a one-owner 930, which should help prospective buyers understand the car’s history and assuage any concerns over its mechanical condition. It sounds like the engine has been refreshed with some upgrades added at that time. Overall I think one of the seller’s statements is spot on regarding how we approach this 930: it’s an example that can be driven and enjoyed without too many concerns over those additional miles marring its long-term value. At its present bidding of $65,100 it’s looking like a nice value, though that is with the reserve unmet so we’ll have to see how much higher this will need to go. Like many other ’80s 911s we’ve looked at values have begun to come back to earth with driver-quality examples remaining obtainable. A 930 isn’t cheap by any means, but there remain few machines that offer the driving experience of these early Turbos.
