    1979 930 Turbo, PTS Continental Orange w/ black interior, chassis # 9309801134. The PTS order must have pushed the production date to 12/79.

    Beautiful example with only 33K miles. It would be nice to see the date stamp on the back of the 85 mph VDO speedometer. I think it is likely that VDO made all of these very late-79 speedos in 11/79 (this is date on my 85 mph speedo, chassis # 1164). The spare tire date on this example is also the same as my car.

    1979 930 Turbo, chassis # 9309800724, silver w/ light red interior. It’s now equipped with snorkel headlight washers but I wonder if the previous flush mounted washers were original with this chassis number.

    In 2012, originally sold at Indigo Classics, then at Canepa, auction, and now advertised on pcar market.

    I believe you are correct, the flush mounted washers should be original with this chassis number, not the snorkels.

    CONGRATULATIONS on a great '79 930. The Martini/Furhmann decor is quite stunning. Would love to see more pictures and know the VIN number.

    Another former Marshall Goldman collection '80 Build 1979 Model Year 930 that sold for decent money at the Gooding & Company 2019 Pebble Beach Auction. This "Last 50" Red/Black 9309801179 is listed as another very low mile '79 930. All the boxes may be checked on this one but it has a 150 MPH speedometer in place of the correct 85 MPH unit. No mention of the speedometer change in the Gooding catalog description is noted.

    Mind boggling all the famous people who owned a 930.

    Just learned today the Ralph Lauren once owned a 930.

    I have a rare 1979 Minirva Blue Exterior / Royal Blue Interior. PERFECT IN EVERY WAY! 30,000 miles. Heavily Documented! Arguably the best in the world.
