The 930 itself is a rare car. From 1978-1989 less than 15,000 cars were built over an 11-year period. By modern Porsche standards, that’s not a lot of cars at all. And the Cabriolet is, of course, even more rare. It was introduced in February 1987, remaining on sale (and, with the Targa, outliving the original Coupe) until July 1989. Less than 3,000 were built over the three-year period, with the vast majority of them going to the US and Canada. It’s suggested that less than 650 cars were actually sent to Europe.
In 1988, 242 Cabriolets were produced for Europe, compared to 677 Coupes and a meagre 136 Targas. That shows what a find this model is: one of 242 1988-build cars across the whole of Europe. Research would show how many still remain, but you can bet it isn’t 242. 930s are becoming cherished cars now, used less and less as age and historical relevance start to factor heavily on owners’ minds. 930 Cabriolets are even thinner on the ground.
This, then, is a rare opportunity indeed: the chance to buy a genuine 930 Cabriolet. Only 77,000 kms from new in easily the most rare and desirable colour combination of cassis metallic with a Bordeaux interior. Offered with all the relevant paperwork this 930 turbo cabriolet is ready for a new custodian.
