So I bought this car because I love all 924/944/968's and especially the turbos....I really can't find a lot out there on the Hobert 931's. I am a rennlist person from back in the day (email digests circa 1995?) so I posted there and got nothing. Maybe people here know more about these cars. I have the original window sticker from Hobert Porsche showing this car was a Hobert Carrera GT conversion. 22K original miles and service history as well.

What else do people know about this new car of mine? I will do my best to attach pictures.

Id love to know whatever you can tell me..

Thanks for the information. The car is still in transit to me. So I don't know all the answers. All I do know is that I have a receipt for a $5K Hobert Carrera GT conversion Kit. It might just be the body and wheels...??

I will know more in a week when it arrives.

Here is an engine bay photo. From what I can tell it looks mostly stock. You all will know better.

...The car sat for 20 years before it was brought back to life with a mechanical restoration to get it back on the road and driving.
