THE PORSCHE 930

Much of the Porsche 911's development had resulted from the factory's racing program, and it was the then FIA Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, which spurred the development of 'Project 930' - the legendary 911/930 Turbo. In production from April 1975, the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0-liter Carrera 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 100mph in 14 seconds.

What set the 930 Turbo apart from its peers was the relaxed way this stupefying performance was delivered. Comparing the Turbo to similarly quick 'he-man' cars such as the Holman & Moody-tuned Cobra 427 and the Ford GT40, Motor's Roger Bell reckoned what made the Porsche so different was that it "hurls you forward with similar velocity but in an uncannily quiet and effortless way. To be shoved so hard in the back that you need high-back seats to keep your head on, yet neither to feel nor hear anything more than a muffled hum, is a very odd sensation indeed in a car."

Due to strong emission regulation in the US, the Turbo was not imported for the US market between 1979 and 1984, but returned in 1985, now equipped with upgraded Motronic engine management systems. Targa and Cabriolet versions were also introduced. More refined than hitherto yet retaining its high performance edge, the Porsche 930 Turbo sold in the thousands, arguably becoming the definitive sports car of its age.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Offered here is a beautifully restored example of the desirable, original 3.0-Litre 930 Turbo. The 292nd example built of the limited 590 car model-run of the 1976 production year, this exceptional 930 was completed at the Zuffenhausen Porsche factory in January 1976, and finished in the classic color of silver metallic. A US market example, it was equipped much as it appears today, with its looks neatly set off by black-center Fuchs alloy wheels shod on Pirelli tires, and equipped with an electric sunroof. Inside, the 930 Coupe was fully equipped with top-of-the-line features, and trimmed in black leather with matching premium carpets.

The new 930 Turbo is believed to have remained in the US following its delivery; the car's history picks up in the early 2000s when it was confirmed have been in the hands of Mr. Jay Payton of Colorado Springs, CO. Still in the striking silver exterior color at this time, the Porsche would migrate to Denmark in the late 2000s before being purchased in 2014, by a Vancouver, BC collector of some of the best and most special Porsches we have ever seen. Having acquired the car in aged condition, the perfectionist consignor entrusted the car to Jakob's Auto Repair Ltd. of North Vancouver, BC to receive a comprehensive mechanical and cosmetic restoration.

One needs to only glance at the car to see just how thorough a job was performed on the Turbo, work which totaled over 125,000 Canadian dollars. The extensive receipts can be found in the car's history file. The interior was re-trimmed, and all gauges, knobs and switches where restored or replaced. The brightwork and gaskets were also either replaced or refurbished, as were the car's mechanical systems.

Today, this era-evoking 930 3.0 Turbo presents extremely well throughout, and is accompanied by the Porsche-issued Certificate of Authenticity and owner's manual. Also worth noting, it is equipped with a rare, period Blaupunkt radio system with a remote faceplate. Thoroughly restored like very few cars of this era, the Porsche could be shown at concours events and retains its original, matching numbers engine. Combining the unmistakable looks of a classic Porsche, the powerful Turbo motor, and the collectability that goes hand in hand with its low production figures, this extraordinary 1976 930 3.0 Turbo Coupe will not disappoint
