The 1986 Porsche 930 on offer is the product of the perfect combination of performance engineering and the vision of its owner. Sold new in 1986 as a standard 930 Coupe with a few options, it found its first owner. Only a few years later it was delivered to Blackburn and Daly for a full slant nose conversion, completed with all factory steel parts. Unfortunately, early history is not known, but we do know that in December of 2001 it was on offer from the owner of 3 years, located in Maryland. At the time of purchase by its current enthusiast owner/builder, it was described as a well serviced example with a few “S” interior updates, having set of 17” RUF Wheels, and showed 53K original miles. The new owner took possession, turned the key and had a fantastic 930 with a few tasteful mods, and a great driver’s car. This was only the beginning of what was to become an 11-year love affair and constant endeavor to develop the ultimate track going 930. The vendor, a long time PCA member, Porsche Driving instructor, and seasoned racer with much track experience, knew precisely what was needed to turn this into an example that could go around such tracks as Pocono North, Watkins Glen, Summit Point, and NJ Motor Sports Park in a competitive fashion. All while still able to keep a low cost season but leave such competitors as GT3 Cup Cars, C5R’s, and the rest of the field in the rear view mirror. This example was truly built with every aspect in mind, and incorporates nearly 10 years of sorting and critiquing to produce the turnkey track day machine it is today. The build specifications on this car are indeed lengthy, but more importantly were done in stages and well documented. This 930 was professionally altered only after extensive testing, trial, error, in the pursuit of obtaining the perfect lap time at whichever track its Michelin Slicks decided to grace. Accurate calculations, exotic materials, state of the art techniques and products by well-known specialists all contribute to the final product as offered today. The minutest of items such as nuts and bolts have all been replaced with titanium, while plenty of one-off items have been fabricated, such as the cold air intakes for brake cooling. Larger and more important items were created to specific requirements, such as the Turbo; which was created by Turbonetics as a custom built hybrid K27 Unit. The transmission is totally rebuilt utilizing a Quaife differential and closer ratio 3rd and 4th gears. Power from the engine is by way of a 4-puck by Sachs, all fed by a very well built and last generation 91 3.3L 964 Turbo Block; totally rebuilt utilizing a lengthy list of important performance parts, many of which were custom for this build. The exterior received a plethora of attention as well, including a 935 Endurance nose, a D2 Turbo rear bumper, an adjustable carbon fiber rear spoiler as well as fiberglass trunk and hood lids. The interior is comprised of up to date and SCCA/FIA legal components. The Kirky aluminum seat is mounted directly to the K-FAB integrated NASCAR style Roll Cage all with SFI Padding. The driver can feel the track through the 12” Momo suede wheel mounted via a Snap Off quick release. The suspension and braking are the ultimate combination of 993 TT Big Reds to keep the cost of use down while still effectively out braking the competition, and TRG Bilstein RSR Coil Over Shocks, all fully adjustable and connected via bronze bushings and JYBS Control Arms. We are happy to report that today the car is in excellent track worthy condition, in need of nothing to be enjoyed immediately. Cosmetically the car is totally in order and has never seen any accidents or dramatic events to warrant any bodywork. It retains all of its stock metal, very straight with good gaps and spot welds present throughout. The paint shows that of a car that has been driven and enjoyed on various east coast tracks, imperfect but appropriate for the application and in no need of attention. The car overall, in every crevice inside and out, is extraordinarily clean and orderly. There are many ways to go about describing this 930, but to capture the entire scope of this car as a track car and the build itself is very difficult on paper. Cars such as this are all about specifications, lists of what has been done and how. Its success can be defined by its lap times and the thrill it delivers to those brave enough to take on a 930 in a performance environment, let alone a track going version. Lap times at such tracks as Watkins Glen (1:58) and Summit Point (1:17) tell any knowledgeable onlooker what they need to know; this 930 is capable, correctly engineered, and it is really down to the talent behind the wheel to put all of the extensive work to use. In conclusion and comparatively speaking, if one was seeking all of the excitement and ability that an ex-factory backed racer can provide, this is as close as one can come without the $500,000 price tag; a true marvel of engineering and the vision of its owner. The cost to reproduce what is being offered would well exceed $100,000, not to mention hours of testing, trial, and error. This is indeed the ultimate opportunity for any serious enthusiast looking to hone their skills, test their abilities and have a blast while doing so. This 1986 Porsche 930 is an opportunity not to be missed.

About John Starkey
I started racing in an Elva-BMW in British Hillclimbs a long time ago; After spending all my parents’ and my friends’ money on this lark (which I thoroughly enjoyed), I settled down to marriage and two kids until age 30. An XK120 Jaguar just begged to be bought and so I promptly equipped this with a roll-over bar and damn read more...
