THE PORSCHE 911 TURBO

'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 program, 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-liter RSR engine, in road trim a combination that delivered 260bhp for a top speed of 155mph. 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 60mph in 5 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 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 165mph. 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.

Representing a major step forward for the 911, the new Carrera 4 and Carrera 2 - coded named '964' - were launched in 1989, the former marking the first time that four-wheel drive had been seen on a series-production 911. Porsche had experimented with four-wheel drive on the 959 supercar, and many of the lessons learned from the latter influenced the design of the 964's chassis and suspension. Face-lifted but retaining that familiar shape, the Carreras had been given a more extensive work-over mechanically, 87% of parts being claimed as entirely new. Although the normally aspirated duo shared the same 3.6-liter, 247bhp, flat-six engine, the Turbo initially kept its existing 3.3-liter unit, which now developed 320bhp. Power-assisted steering (another 911 'first'), anti-lock brakes and a five-speed manual transmission were standard, with the Tiptronic auto 'box a Carrera 2-only option. In October 1992 the Turbo received the 3.6-liter engine, which in 'blown' from now produced a mighty 360bhp.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Representing the Type 964 in its ultimate incarnation, this 3.6-liter Turbo was completed on April 7th, 1993 delivered new to its first, New Haven, Connecticut owner in June of 1993 by Continental Imports of Joplin, Missouri. The car is finished in Grand Prix White with Marine Blue Leather—a handsomely priced option, and additionally has the following desirable factory options: sunroof, 18" polished wheels, supple leather seats, driver's seat lumbar support, rear seat covers, and 6-disc CD changer. All today, the sticker price came to $107,146—not chump change in 1993.

The original owner, an enthusiast who acquired the car to replace his 930 Turbo, kept the car meticulously maintained by Porsche specialists Automotive Associates in Canton, Connecticut. Driven sparingly on nice days in the summer, this first keeper amassed fewer than 50,000 miles in over two decades of continuous ownership when he sold it to the present owner in early January, 2015.

Since becoming the second owner of the car, few addition miles have been added but a further $15,000 in service has been performed by Automotive Associates. Still showing under 50,000 original miles, the lifetime of careful maintenance and cosmetic detailing have helped the car retain a look that is not far off of how it must have appeared when it was delivered new in the summer of '93. Blindingly quick, with contemporary reports by Car and Driver establishing the 0-60mph time of a scant 4.0 seconds and a top speed in excess of 174mph, few cars can match the speed and ferocity of this nearly quarter of a century old car. Despite the vast sums of power, these Type-964 Turbo 3.6 are still described as being exceedingly well behaved and vastly less prone to the tail happy snap-oversteer for which the early generation of cars was famous.

Complete with a clean CARFAX, copy of its original window sticker, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and service records, this elegant Turbo 3.6 is ready to, swiftly, motor into the garage of its next owner.
