Hey guys,
My New Joisy 931 parts car was looking lonely after 4 months of neglect so I threw some gas in and tried it out. It's a rocket and feels a lot faster than my 924S. I'm impressed!

931's kick ass, I dare to see any Porsche from that vintage beat a 931. As for the 4 banger line itself, forget the rest except for these two, a 944T is smoother and has more power and 968 is styled and classy.

I like the idea of a rag tag bunch of 931's haunting the highways, devouring anything and everything. We have the Frankenstein of cars and it rules.

Zuffen,
Do you find a new Porsche every time you mow the lawn or what? Where on earth would you put so many cars?

I just stand them on end and stack them in the back yard, they don't take up near as much room that way.

10 acres at the farm and 4 cars at the house.

I'm trying to sell a kidney so I can build a 4K sq ft building and start a shop

Define runnng?

I only have one 931 which has a blown engine. All the others run or did run when last started.

Since I only need one car to drive at the moment I don't try to keep the others up. I know, what a sacrilege, but I'm working on a shop, and a restoration business. So when that gets going I'll start fixing one at a time and should be able to keep them all going.

I need alot of paint work right know and some time to work out the gremlins.

Wow you have one of those US 924s, the Gremlin. I have not seen one in a long time. Does Lars and the guys know about this. Send us some pictures so we can see what Gremlins you have.

Regards

Well I am wonderign how many 931s there actually are if most of them have been parted out or in accidents Bob. I have seen a lot of 931s part out, including the one I had, so just how rare is this car these days? It's so rare that the parts on ebay for 931s don't go for much money. 924 parts go for good...

I think I saved my 931 from being parted. It was sold to me as a parts car, but it is in good shap. I had to fight for it on ebay. It isn't running yet, but it has come a long way. can't wate to drive it.
