Known History

First shown at the Paris Motor Show in 1973, the Porsche 930 Turbo went on sale in 1974. The 3-litre engine was derived in part from the engine used in the Carrera RS 3.0L. With the addition of the KKK turbocharger, it was the most powerful version of the 911, boasting 260bhp DIN. In 1977, the 930 gained 300 cc and 40hp, but also a little extra weight, due to the improved sound-proofing and more comprehensive equipment. The hydraulic clutch was also more civilised. The suspension benefitted from new anti-roll bars, firmer shock absorbers and larger diameter rear torsion bars. The 930 continued to improve with age, particularly with a new adapted fuel injection system, and wider rear wheels to improve road-handling. The last significant evolution was in 1988 when, along with the rest of the range, the 930 was fitted with the Getrag G50 5-speed gearbox. The benefit of 15 years of improvement since the very first 930 has made this ultimate model the most interesting.

 

The car offered is presented in grand prix white, with midnight blue interior. It is one of the very last 930s with the G50 gearbox fitted with sun roof. The car was delivered new to the US and according to its CARFAX report has suffered no accident damage. Bought by a Dutch enthusiast who was impressed by the overall condition of the car, the unsightly US-configuration bumpers and lights were removed when the car was imported into the Netherlands. The odometer reads 26,000 miles, which is thought to be the genuine mileage, given the excellent condition of the car and its interior. The car comes with its manuals, CARFAX report and Dutch registration document. Here is an opportunity to purchase an example of the most advanced of the 930s, in excellent condition.
