    1979 930 Turbo, PTS Continental Orange w/ black interior, chassis # 9309801134. The PTS order must have pushed the production date to 12/79.

    Beautiful example with only 33K miles. It would be nice to see the date stamp on the back of the 85 mph VDO speedometer. I think it is likely that VDO made all of these very late-79 speedos in 11/79 (this is date on my 85 mph speedo, chassis # 1164). The spare tire date on this example is also the same as my car.

    1979 930 Turbo, chassis # 9309800724, silver w/ light red interior. It’s now equipped with snorkel headlight washers but I wonder if the previous flush mounted washers were original with this chassis number.

    In 2012, originally sold at Indigo Classics, then at Canepa, auction, and now advertised on pcar market.

    I believe you are correct, the flush mounted washers should be original with this chassis number, not the snorkels.
