Bought about 18 months ago as a project car. The car had been sitting, so I had the timing belt replaced. Once we started it up, realized it had a significant oil leak coming from rear of engine, on passenger side/center. In last picture, you can see exactly the area it’s coming from, which is near where the pipe that feeds into the waste gate attaches to the exhaust manifold. At this point, I parked the car at a storage lot, and I started to part out the interior only.
Then I stopped, so as not to disturb any mechanical or electrical functions on the car. I’ve been paying monthly storage fees ever since.
The car runs drives, shifts, brakes properly. Should be able to be driven up onto a transport trailer if necessary. Exhaust looks normal when running – does not burn oil. The body is solid – no structural rust anywhere in jack points or longs. Body is also very straight. It has one rust spot in the passenger pan as you can see in picture, where water was likely leaking in and keeping the carpet wet in that area. This would be an easy repair. Also, the previous owner cut a section of the sheet metal on the tunnel out – like an access hole or something. But as shown in the picture, the piece cut out was still in the car, and can easily be welded back in.
The head may have been rebuilt around 2013 – when it was titled in the name of an import car repair shop. It looks rebuilt, and I was given some receipts listing parts and their cost, associated with a top end rebuild, but I can’t seem to be able to locate the papers now. Has the desirable Porsche built 931 “snailshell” transmission for 1979 and 1980 Turbos only, with the dog leg 1st gear. Original KKK Turbocharger – car looks mostly all original.
Would love to keep it, because 931s in any condition are getting harder to find, but I have my eye on a new project, so I’m going to list this car, and also a 944 I have.
