OWNER: Kevin S. Weiss

HOMETOWN: St. Simons Island, South Carolina

 

DESCRIPTION:

930 PORSCHE VIN 930-680-0508 was manufactured in June of 1976 to U.S. specs. The automobile was ordered for the legendary Porsche racing driver, Mr. Peter Gregg. It was ordered with every available option. Included with the option package is the very rare “Turbo Side Lettering” (a $120.00 option and ordered on only 52 US 930’s). It was during the same time Mr. Gregg ordered his automobile that Dr. John Fillingim ordered his 930 from the same dealership. Dr. Fillingim’s 930 would be identically optioned to that of Mr. Gregg’s. The only difference would be that Dr. Fillingim’s 930 was ordered in Grand Prix White with a red interior. Both cars arrived simultaneously at BRUMOS PORSCHE + AUDI in Jacksonville Florida. Dr. Fillingim and Mr. Gregg admired each other’s cars so much that a swap took place prior to either accepting delivery of the cars they originally ordered. An availability fee of $1,000.00 was added to the price of Dr. Fillingim’s new (Guards Red) 930 and is included on the “Bill of Sale.” Dr. J. Fillingim of Savannah Georgia sold this Porsche in 1986 to Mr. R. Kent Porth of Columbia SC. At the time of sale the mileage was 38,153. In March of 1988, Mr. Porth sold this automobile to its present owner (Mr. Kevin Weiss). At the time of sale, the mileage was 48,377. During the course of its present ownership (23 years) the car has been in 32 Concours de’ Elegance. It has received honors in 30 of them. The car won 1st in class and 1st in Division for “Preservation Touring” at this year’s Porsche Parade Originality of this 930 remains exceedingly close to the day it left the factory in Germany. The paint remains original (some minor touch up to rock chips on the valance and hood), original interior (updated parcel shelf), original (number matching) engine, transmission and transaxle and updated 16” Fuchs from a 1977 930 Turbo (original 15” Fuchs remain in my barn). The documentation is extensive and commences with the original “Bill of Sale” and continues to the current day.
