You would have to be brave though:

Green / brown trim Confused
No log book, service history, Mot, etc. Confused
No recourse if unroadworthy, clocked, accident damaged, etc Confused

And in the circumstances of it's sale, may have an 'interesting' history? Mr. Green (Although a hidden stash of something in the spare wheel well could make it a bargain for someone... Laughing )

Come on then people, what does a good 930 go for then and what does a poor one go for as well.

Me first good one £20k plus poor one £10k less.

Well it got a little more interesting,to be fair the car didn't look all that bad in it's colour scheme.
I had a good look around and the body work was sound and the interior, despite the colour ,was in good condition,no tears our sign of wear.
Then I asked for the keys to start it,ah well,no.Why not?.Er well it doesn't
start.
I started to dig for info and it transpired the car had been in storage since 2000 and the storage company had a writ to sell it as no storage fees had been payed.
The Auction House had sent the car to a local 'performance car engineer',their words not mine,and after two hours had not managed to fire it up.
Their opinion was the fuel injectors where knackered.
So there we were 30 interested parties with a car that hadn't started for 8 years,there were some who seemed keen at first then found it wouldn't go and walked away.
Eventually the bidding started at 5 grand .................
Anyone want to hazard a guess what it went for?.Be back later with the final episode.

I bet there weren't many bids once it got above £5000 tbh... If there is big engine trouble that wouldn't be a cheap car if it was free! Not exactly loved is it... Sad

Might go for a reasonable amount. Forget the value as a car as it's breaking it for parts that will make good money. Early 930 suspension, brakes, engine parts, gearbox parts are all worth money these days.

Final price nearly £14K all in for a non runner and a car that needs loads of money spent on it to put right.Sounds like 930 prices are going up .

Dunno then - not a car i know anything about. I have to say though that i think the colour combo is excellent - really evocative of 70's sports cars. I much prefer it to the flat whites and reds etc on this model. Certainly if i wanted a Porsche of this era i would seek out a car with an original whacky colour - like this, perhaps! But each to their own, of course.

Yes got that right, I wanted black on black anything else for me would have been second best its a lot of money to spend on a car for you not to be happy driving around in it.
As many people know, on here took me four years to find a good 930 after looking at so called good ones more than a dozen in total.Are 930's going up in value now even non runners.
