Spotted in San Pedro is a 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo Project for $28,000 USD. This is an interesting ad for a 930 turbo coupe with only 44,000 miles on it. The seller is the second owner and he states the title is clean but had an accident 20 years ago. He bouhts all the parts to repair it but never got around to it.

This will not be an easy fix. The new owner will need to weld on new quarter panels and repair the driver’s door. It is all original except for the engine which was modified by one of the countries best Porsche engineers and was in excellent running condition when removed from the car to repair the unibody 20 years ago. The front suspension was also removed to mount the car on the jiggs to square up the unibody on a Celette Frame Bench. The seler has thousands of dollars in new parts but you will still need to buy seats, hood, and front bumper assembly which were lost in storage.
