1989 Porsche 930 911 Turbo Cabriolet G50/50 5-Speed Gearbox/Limited Slip Diff. 1 of 600 Built for North America Past PCA President Owner 1-Owner for 23-Years ENG# 68K00178 (930/68) Numbers Matching 64,500 Original Miles Grand Prix White on Blue Leather & Porsche Cloth with Dark Blue Top 5-speed G50/50 Manual Transmission Clean and Clear Arizona Title No Accidents/Mostly Original Paint 2-Southwest Owners from New Past PCA President Owned Clean AutoCheck Background Report Porsche Certificate of Authenticity (COA) More and more enthusiasts are beginning to see not only what wonderful cars the 930s are to drive, but also how important they are to the history of the 911. These Turbos were built between 1975 and 1989. The last year was a shorter production as Porsche was already introducing the new 964 body. As a result, only a handful of last-year 930s were built for North America. Only 600 cabriolets were actually delivered to the U.S out of 824 built in total for the globe. Plus, it was the only year 930 to get the all-new G50/50 5-speed gearbox. These two factors are making the 1989 Porsche Turbos among the most desirable. This Porsche was built in August of 1988 and sold new by Beverly Hills Porsche on May 26th, 1989. Although these last year 930s were well equipped as standard, the following additional options were ordered: Custom cloth seat inserts with “Porsche” embroidered Blaupunkt Reno Radio Amplifier Limited Slip Differential (40%) The total MSRP was nearly $73,000 (approximately $146,000 in today’s dollars). The first owner serviced the car regularly at the local Porsche dealer until selling it to the current owner in 1994 with around 28k-miles. The current owner has been a long time active PCA member and served on our local OCR (Orange Coast Region) board for over 10-years including the role as President. In the late 90’s, he ended up moving to Arizona and the car has been carefully garaged there ever since. Most of the miles are from PCA events including national Parades. Over the years, this owner has serviced the car regularly and it has never needed any major work. Highlights of services over the years include: Rebuild A/C system including new lines and compressor Restore factory wheels with polished lips (by Al Reed) New soft-top (by the Porsche dealer) Replaced ignition control unit Furthermore, we just had our local specialist go through the whole car, inspect it, and perform the following services: Rebuild warm up regulator Rebuild fuel distributor Rebuild fuel pressure regulator Remove and clean fuel tank and system Clean, test, and inspect fuel injectors Replace hood and decklid shocks Service A/C system (charge/check for leaks) New factory horn Check/fix all interior and exterior lights General inspection New correct OEM size Bridgestone tires Adjust/service power top Our local specialist found this 930 to be in very nice, dry, and original condition. The bottom was dry with no oil leaking from the normal spots. The turbo system was also dry. Furthermore, there were no signs of abuse or damage. This 930 is in excellent condition and typical for a low-mile, 2-owner, Southwest Porsche. The paint appears to be mostly original and verified with a paint meter. There is (undetectable to the naked eye) some blending on the front right fender, which shows on the paint meter. However, the car has been inspected and there are no signs of accidents or other repairs. The doors, hood, and deck lid are all wearing their original VIN decals as well as the original option decal under the hood (see pics). There are minimal signs of use as the owner used a car bra when traveling (included). There are two faint door dings in the right rear fender (see pics) and are barely detectible. All the glass is original (including the windshield) and in great shape. All the light lenses are nice with no cracks. The original factory Fuchs have been refinished/polished and are wearing new Bridgestone tires. The brakes have just under half-life remaining. All of the exterior lights function properly. The interior is equally as nice. The original leather/cloth seats are in excellent condition with minimal signs of wear. The rare Porsche text fabric is in great shape with no rips. There is one small tear on one of the rear seat backs (see pic). The dash is perfect and has no cracks or warping. The door panels and carpet look fresh with no stains or warping either. The soft top was recently replaced by the Porsche dealer and looks near new with a clear rear window, perfect headliner, and no tears or rips. It is a full automatic power top and functions properly. All the gauges function properly. There was an older aftermarket radio system in the car that didn’t work, so we had it professionally removed and a factory delete plate installed. The original Blaupunkt radio broke over 20-years ago and is not available. The A/C system has recently been serviced and blows ice cold. All the rest of the buttons and switches work properly. This Turbo comes with its original owner’s manuals, space saver spare tire, jack, Certificate of Authenticity, car bra, tonneau cover, and recent service receipts.
