'The new engine turned out to have enormous marketing power. It became a real status symbol to have that little word 'turbo' on your rear deck, and this fashion spread right across the motor industry.' - Peter Morgan, 'Original Porsche 911'.
Much of the Porsche 911's development had resulted from the factory's racing programme, and it was the then Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, which spurred the development of 'Project 930' - the legendary 911 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 160km/h in around 14 seconds.
The Turbo's characteristic flared wheelarches 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. The Turbo's engine was enlarged to 3.3 litres 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 260km/h. More refined than hitherto yet retaining its high performance edge, the Turbo sold in the thousands, becoming the definitive sports car of its age. When Porsche revealed that the original 911 would be replaced by the new Type 964 in 1990, dealer stocks of the existing Turbo model sold out overnight.

Delivered new in Belgium on 17th November 1988 by the local Porsche dealer Moreau in Chenee, this rare Turbo Targa has the five-speed manual gearbox introduced for the 1989 model year (the last of the Type 930's production), all previous versions having made do with a four-speed transmission. The first owner (SA Elthera in Liège) kept the Turbo until October 1990 when it passed to Thierry Deleure in Brussels (see owners' list in maintenance booklet), who probably kept it until 2004 when it passed to the next owner in Germany (see Fahrzeugbrief on file). Towards the end of 2005, the car was exported to Andorra via Portugal, where it remained until 2014 in the hands of Mr Garcia Capitan (copy of cancelled registration on file). Its next owner was a Belgian Porsche collector who took great care of the car and kept it until early 2016.
Service stamps are present for the entire history of the car in Belgium and Germany (see booklet). The Contrôle Technique dated 2004 mentions an odometer reading of 64,979 kilometres, and there are service invoices on file dating from when the car returned to Belgium in 2014 quoting around 77,000 kilometres. Today the odometer reading is circa 79,000 kilometres, which is believed to be genuine.
Earlier this year, the Kronos official Porsche dealership put the car through the thorough '111 Points Check' as well as compression test (copies of the report and test are in the file). The car was serviced (copy of invoice available). Presented today in generally excellent condition, this rare and highly desirable motoring icon comes with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and its original service booklet, user's manual, radio manual, and dealers list - all in the original pouch - together with two spare keys.
