The Porsche 930 Turbo was a genuine 'Supercar' that defined the seventies and eighties. It was one of the fastest production cars available at the time. It was first seen at the 1973 Paris Auto Show and full production commenced two years later. The basic engine underpinnings came from the Carrera 2.7RS which was increased to 3.0Litres and, of course, turbocharged with technology gained from Porsche's 917/30 Can-Am program. The bodywork received special treatment to produce one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear whale-tail. The brakes came directly from the Porsche 917 race car. The final evolution of the 930 Turbo saw the engine capacity increased to 3299cc, with improved upgrades on the intercooler and, for some, the fitment of the G50 transmission.
Purchased new in 1989 from AFN Porsche and delivered to a Mr Nigel Hull this is one of just 56 righthand drive Targa Turbos manufactured and one of even fewer fitted with the desirable G50 5-speed gearbox.  The fewer than 61,000 warranted miles displayed on the odometer is a good enough story, but given the overall appearance of this Porsche you could be forgiven for thinking this car has less than half that such is its overall condition.  The Grand Prix White bodywork has a deep mirror-like finish throughout and all panel gaps are reassuringly symmetrical, the body is as it left Stuttgart all those years ago.
Built with 3.3 litre air-cooled turbo engine the car is reported to generate over 330bhp, options included on this car are: locking differential, heated sports seats, amplifier system, 2 speakers on back shelf, windscreen tint, impact bumpers and 3 point rear seat belts.  It is reported that mechanically it starts easily with a guttural blast and soon settles to an even tickover.  This car propels you down the road with all the alacrity you could wish for and more, transporting you back to a time of a flat six bark followed by a silken whallop all the way through acceleration.
The vendor informs us of 11 stamps in the service book, there is paperwork showing expenditure of £792.39 with an independent Porsche specialist in October 2013 which included a major service for complete peace of mind.  Sold with a fresh MOT this has to be one of the best and rarest 911 Targa Turbos ever to come to auction, and as such we expect huge interest on this car from all four corners of the globe.
