Footnotes

  • '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'.

    This Porsche 911 Turbo was imported in 2000 from Europe by a Mr Bellers. The car was then bought by Mr Sutherland of Devon in 2002 before passing to the current owner in 2004. Its history is not known prior to 2000. At first the DVLA registered car as 'X631 WTY'; the vendor then ran it with a private plate for a couple of years before obtaining the current age-related registration from the DVLA.

    There are records on file for servicing and repairs from 2002 onwards. These include bills for replacing the clutch and flywheel (at 154,259 km); a 12,000-mile service (158,465 km); and new heat exchangers and repairs (159,373 km). The current odometer reading is circa 167,000 km (approximately 103,700 miles).

    While in the vendor's care the car has been regularly serviced and maintained by SCS Porsche of Honiton, Devon. Recent maintenance includes replacing the sunroof cables and ensuring their proper functioning; fitting gas struts to the front and rear lids (bills available); re-upholstering the steering wheel; respraying the front and rear bumpers and bonnet; and £800 worth of further renovation to the paintwork and bonnet badge. In addition, a new set of 'summer' Fuchs-style 16" wheels was fitted in March 2019 and shod with four new Continental tyres at a total cost of £1,370. The original 'winter' Fuchs alloy wheels are to be sold with the car as spare. The car also comes with two handbooks (in German and English), original tool kit, spare wheel, and two sets of keys. Deletion of the air pump and fitting a manual waste gate adjuster, believed by Kremer Garage, are notified deviations from factory specification, and the car also has an immobiliser fitted.

    The car has belonged to the current owner for the past 15 years where it has been dry stored in Devon. We are advised by the private vendor that this Porsche has plenty of power, the turbo spooling up quickly and delivering the kind of thrust synonymous with the Type 930. The steering is described as light and direct, and this very useable classic is said to handle and stop as it should. A very good, original example of this iconic and desirable German sports car.
