Porsche 930 Is Maddening, Wonderful

Porsche 930 Is Maddening, Wonderful

By Petrolicious Productions / 31 Jul 2014 / 7 Comments Read More

Taking off again was agonizingly slow as the 3.3-liter engine struggled to respond to my planted right foot, that was until the turbo spooled up and the forced induction shoved me squarely into the leather sport seat, by which time the car was barreling into a corner, boost and all...

When I saw a photo of this car I knew I had to have it but knew absolutely nothing about Alfa Romeos. So what did I do? I bought it, in spite of the fact that it had been neglected, and proceeded to nickel-and-dime my way through it for about ten years, until the car just couldn't take it anymore and I enlisted some professional help.

The goal was to keep the car simple and period correct, but also to add some touches that don't make it come off as another semi-restoration. Under the hood, the 2002 remains mostly stock except for a 32/38 Weber carburetor and E21 radiator. With all the influences throughout my life, car-wise, I've tried very hard to avoid from what everyone else does.

I’d be in a gas station buying more Monster Energy Tea and Maxx would be out giving the whole story to some mystified traveler who’d either never seen one and thought it was a vintage Porsche or Saab or, on rare occasions, knew exactly what it was and was thrilled to see one for the first time in dozens of years. Driving the DS was like coming into town with free cookies or a basket of kittens.

What to Drive Today–Porsche or Ferrari?

What to Drive Today–Porsche or Ferrari?

The 911 has a race car feel and it's a little tinny, but light and quick. In terms of preference, the Porsche and the Ferrari are completely different worlds, and each has its own attributes. The Ferrari (a 550 Maranello) is big, refined and comfortable. It pulls like a D9 Caterpillar (big bulldozer)! It's a perfect blend of comfort and performance–a true gentleman's GT.

When it comes to this Jag, I like the smell and the sound, most of all. I like the thin steering wheel, the bakelite switches, the feeling of the gearbox, and the hard clutch. The engine has a lot of torque and is gently powerful. And obviously, I love it because I have been dreaming of it since I was a child.

I like the fact they are attainable, easy to work on (if its not a rust issue) and easy to upgrade. The best things for me are that it's sort of retro, has '80s coolness and it's real fun to drive! It might be FWD, it might not be as fast or rare as its RS Turbo and Cosworth family-members but it's something that can be driven everyday and can be driven hard!

And he was right, it was my dream car, a '69 Shelby in one of my favorite colors for it and in great condition. I love originality, so the fact that it's so untouched made it a no-brainer for me. I sold my '69 Mach 1 that I had just finished, and haven't regretted the decision for a single second.

Every Friday night was a social event, old and young alike would come to the garage, admire the car, talk about their day, and then talk about the car. The old men loved it and remembered it from their youth, the young guys loved its rarity. I remember sitting in it while Angelo tuned the carburettors, and I'd dream of getting my license and driving it.

After about a month and a half of planning, the date was set; we would load the F40 into an enclosed trailer and make the trip over to the Salt Flats. All was looking good until two days prior when the forecast called for a heavy rainstorm near Wendover that Friday. My heart sank. Was the dream shoot going to be cancelled because Mother Nature had her own plans?

I found the car parked along a country road in Pennsylvania. I was running late for a client meeting but knew I would hate myself if I didn't stop for a look. A quick once-over and I was in love and now running very, very late for said meeting. Following the meeting, I was to head down to Northern Virginia to pick up a 1972 Long Hood 911. In a matter of seconds, I knew my plans had changed.
