Chassis no. 9307800142; Engine no. 6870159. Comet Diamond Metallic over dark brown leather. 2,993/234hp, 4-speed, black painted Fuchs wheels, sunroof, air conditioning, limited-slip.

Evaluation: Delivered new to San Francisco in paint-to-sample Comet Diamond Metallic. Showing 52,502 miles and represented with four owners from new. Older repaint, possibly done under warranty in period. Light scratches on the right front near the hood as well as small chips near the sunroof and the edge of the hood. Even gaps and straight body. Light wear on the driver’s seat, but the upholstery mostly looks great. The headliner was reportedly replaced a few years ago but shows some minor staining. Unrestored but consistently maintained engine bay and underbody. A great early 930 in oh-so-70s colors. Located in California.

Bottom Line: We’ve been watching a slow but steady decline in 930 prices after their meteoric rise from 2014 to 2016. A Rennlist post from a couple of years ago listed this car for $149,000. In 2020, this online result is sensible for an early American market car with minor flaws, although for a paint-to-sample car it’s a bit of a bargain.
