1988 Porsche 930 Coupe

So who wants to take a risk? Or if not a risk, then simply put in the work to understand this Porsche 930’s history. As I’ve said previously, when we encounter cars that seem undervalued then we must ask a lot of questions. That is especially so when we are dealing with cars that aren’t exactly flying under the radar and the 930 certainly fits that bill. But with an asking price of $77,950 this Black Pearl Metallic 1988 Porsche 930 Coupe definitely seems like it is on offer for a pretty reasonable price and given the sharp rise in values we’ve seen for these Turbos that price brings with it a host of concerns. But the mileage is very reasonable and it looks in very good shape. Honestly, if it wasn’t for the low price I would have few questions about this car and the color combination (more on that below) isn’t one we see very often on a 911. Perhaps I’m being too cynical and this is just a nice value?

We aren’t offered a good deal of information about this 930 and it sounds like the seller doesn’t possess a thorough accounting of its history. Obviously, that makes an assessment more difficult. One important piece in that regard is the color combination where we’re especially in need of verification of its originality. Both the interior and exterior colors appear to have been taken from the Mercedes paint catalog, which helps explain the rare combination among Porsches. Frankly, it’s quite a nice combination. I certainly prefer it over the much more common black on black and for those that are not fans of a tan interior this combination provides an alternative. Outside of the color we’re offered little to assess the mechanical history so a PPI is a must. All of that said, with some research I’m sure interested buyers can begin to fill in the various gaps and this could check out as a really nice value for what looks to be an excellent 930 Coupe.

  1. There is something about the MB Black Pearl Metallic that was a hit back then. I even painted my ’81 Scirocco S that color in 1990. It was a beautiful green/gray in the day and a deep black at night.

  2. Nice looking car and the price is great. Its been sitting on their lot since June.

  3. That would be the deal of the year if it was mostly correct. Even a bad engine would make this almost a doable purchase price in today’s market. The eBay add shows an 80% positive feedback on 1602 posts. Anyone truly interested should get a knowledgable Porsche PPI.

  4. I have never dealt with Park place personally but I have seen many different opinions about them on various car forums….take everything with a grain of salt…
    that said….this BIN is below what I have seen comparable cars sell for lately.
    while certain years seem to command more $$$ than others….IF this car is EXACTLY as it is represented that is a very fair price…

  5. Just north of a 50% discount compared to other 930s I’ve seen of late – this car’s been wrecked. Only reasonable explanation. What a cool color though!

  6. The Carfax is linked in the ebay listing- clean carfax with consistent mileage. So no salvage or theft recovery. The only thing I can think of is that the engine needs a rebuild. Still, that’s a good $30-40k below market.

  7. This car has been repainted. Everything but the roof. Non-original paint is part of the discount.

  8. We all assume there is some story to go along with the price of this car. The pictures are not detailed enough to know if its a repaint. I’ll assume it is at that price. As far as non stock parts, aside from the head unit and the ungo box it looks mostly stock.
