Carolinas Region Car of the Month: Doc's 930

We are continuing our ongoing series called Car of The Month. Members interested in having their car featured are asked to submit photos and a short write-up to the TR Editor for consideration.

I’m Fred Benedict, and November’s Car of the Month is my 930. This car has a lot of history in the Atlanta region. It was built by Doc Emard from Atlanta in the 1990’s and I bought it in 2000 after he passed away. Doc was the national 930 technical expert for PCA for years and this car was his project car, so it had all the latest upgrades available at the time.

I have done a lot of work to the car since I got it (Electromotive ECU, Moton shocks and coilovers all around, Garrett turbocharger, 75mm throttle body, rear wing, roll bar and recaro seats). It has also been recently painted. The motor made over 600 horsepower when tested on a dyno several years ago. The weight is only 2800 pounds, it’s got a G-50 5 speed transmission and “Big Reds” (brake upgrade). It is extremely fast, and will go 60 to 100 in 3.2 seconds (0-60 is hard on the clutch). I track it quite a bit, mainly at Roebling Road near Savannah since we go to Hilton Head a lot. It is a really cool and special car.
