THE PORSCHE 930 TURBO

In production from April 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 250km/h. But the Turbo wasn't just about 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 161km/h in 14 seconds.

The Turbo's characteristic flared wheel arches and 'tea tray' rear spoiler had already been seen on the Carrera model, while the interior was the most luxurious yet seen in a 911, featuring leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. More refined than hitherto yet retaining its high performance edge, the Turbo sold in the thousands, becoming the definitive sports car of its age.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This 1980 Porsche 930 Turbo Coupe was delivered new to the home market, finished in striking Guards Red over the stylish brown leather interior with black/brown Chessboard velour, or Pasha, as seen in the car today. The car's long list of optional equipment included a limited slip differential, high amperage battery, electric mirror on the right, air conditioning and an electric sunroof.

Copies of the import paperwork on file indicate that the car was imported to the US by Donald R. Valenti in late-1981, and approved by the EPA in 1982. By 1984, the red 930 was in the hands of Michigan resident Albert Mowry. The car is believed to have remained in Mr. Mowry's possession until the mid-1990s when it was purchased by John Molenaar of Oklahoma, who would sell the car to Idaho Porsche-enthusiast Jim Banse. The Porsche was purchased by the consignor from Banse a few years ago.

The many receipts on file dating back to the early 1980s attest to diligent service and maintenance, and a recent mechanical and cosmetic fettle by North Vancouver based specialist shop Jakob's Auto Repair was just performed, which totaled nearly 10,000 Canadian dollars. A recent test drive with a Bonhams specialist proved the car to be in very well-sorted condition. Presented wonderfully with the original factory livery and engine intact, this 930 is ready for its next caretaker.
