'84 Euro S interference or not. Answer will be coming...
I was getting on it pretty good for a short burst and heard a "pop" and the car died instantly. I coasted into my neighborhood and had AAA flatbed me to my house. I removed the ALT, PS pump and the covers to see what happened. I guess I need to go back to the scene tomorrow because there is no timing belt. Some residue, but no belt.
One odd thing happened before this. I was on the highway and had to slow to a creeping speed due to construction traffic. Suddenly, I got steam coming from my vents like burning coolant. As I was about to pull over it disappeared. Lasted maybe 3 seconds. Drove a few more miles and stopped the car to do an errand. Took a look and nothing leaking. Started back up and headed home. About 1/4 mile from my neighborhood, I decided to get on it for a short burst.....the rest will be history.

It must have happened when the belt broke. There is a picture here of a GTS T-belt failure and the tensioner pulley was bent a lot more than the one on the pic above. And like Sean said, your belt is probably melted a bit and wrapped around the crank gear.

I broke the cam chain in my 944S which has larger valves and higher compression ratio than a 928GT.
I didn't bend one valve.
It did destroy the teeth on both camshafts which cost more than the bent valves would have.....
By rights, I should hate the 928. It was the first press test car I ever crashed. And I used one to go and see my dad the day before he died. I also disliked the dreadful ride quality in later models. And yet, even today, when one grumbles by, my head does the full Linda Blair. It is, I think, one of the best-looking cars ever made.

If you need a NIB twin dizzy complete, I have one available.
Don't ask why, cause the answer goes like this ... I was thinking MOPAR when I got it, with the idea of getting 10 extra horses from a distributor change on my '81 US 4.5.
I cost me $600.00 and is still NIB, and it helps to read PET and the WSM's first before doing stupid things.
Brian he said the valves were O K not bent but round never hit a piston ! Which agrees with what I believe....the deep valve reliefs of the euro piston make it none interference. The 45 degree marks on the balancer and revised t-belt procedure began with the 32V motor.
