THE PORSCHE 930 TURBO

Porsche's most iconic model, the long-running 911 sports car first appeared at the 1963 Frankfurt Show as the '901' but shortly after production commenced in 1964 it was renamed as the '911'. The preceding Type 356's rear-engine layout was retained but the 911 switched to unitary construction for the bodyshell and dropped the 356's VW-based suspension in favor of a more modern McPherson strut and trailing arm arrangement. In its first incarnation, Porsche's single-overhead-camshaft, air-cooled flat six engine displaced 1,991cc and produced 130bhp; progressively enlarged and developed, it would eventually grow to more than 3.0 liters and, in turbo-charged form, put out well over 300 horsepower.

Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, led to the formation of 'Project 930' – the legendary 911 Turbo. Production began in April of 1975; the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0-litre RSR engine; in road trim a combination that delivered 260bhp for a top speed of 155mph. As impressive as this was there was more to the Turbo then just top speed, it was also the best-equipped 911 and amazingly flexible - hence only four speeds in the gearbox - being capable of racing from a standstill to 100mph in 14 seconds.

Borrowing the flared wheel arches and 'tea tray' rear spoiler from the Carrera model, the Turbo made them renowned. Incorporating the most luxurious interior yet seen in a 911, the Turbo featured leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. The Turbo's engine was enlarged to 3.3 liters for 1978, gaining an inter-cooler in the process; power increased to 300bhp and the top speed of what was the fastest-accelerating road car of its day went up to 160mph. More refined and offering better performance than its predecessor, the Turbo sold in the thousands, becoming the definitive sports car of its age.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This 1986 Porsche 930 Turbo Coupe was imported new to California and delivered to Porsche of Downtown Los Angeles on August 8th, 1986. The powerful Porsche was optioned with 16" black Fuchs wheels, a sport steering wheel, sport seats, a Monterey radio, an alarm system and a sunroof. It is believed to have had two long-term owners, both residing in Orange County. This Turbo shows less than 47,000 miles on the odometer and is presented in its original color combination of black over beige leather.

As is commonly known, these limited edition 930 Turbo's were finished at Porsche AG as 'worldwide chassis' meaning that many have a different prefix in the stamped VIN as the one the car is identified under. This car was given worldwide VIN of WP0ZZZ93ZGS051289, as stamped on its chassis-tub, but was then assigned the US-market specific VIN of WP0JB0933GS051289 once it was eventually slated for US delivery. The car's Porsche issued Certificate of Authenticity and CARFAX is also based on its ultimate US-market VIN number.

This car is the recipient of a recent $9,200 service, and is being offered with the Certificate of Authenticity, books, original spare, jack, a clean Carfax, and service records. The next owner of this Turbo will be fortunate to have acquired a car with a clean history, a great color combination, and a recent mechanical servicing which should allow for plenty of spirited driving.
