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.

    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 Type 930 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 (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 (62km/h) in 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 257km/h (160mph). In 1989 the Turbo was offered with the five-speed G50 gearbox, and this late examples are highly prized by collectors today.

    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.

    This desirable late Type 930 Turbo comes with its original Driver's Manual and the Guarantee and Maintenance book, the latter stamped 19 times between 1989 and 2008, and then twice more: in 2018 and April 2020 when it was serviced by Simon Furlonger. (Between 2008 and 2018 the car covered only 2,140 miles, so may have been in storage for part of that time.) Additional documentation consists of a V5C Registration Certificate. MoT'd to January 2022, the Porsche has belonged to the current vendor for circa two years and is described as in good condition throughout.

    Currently displaying a total of circa 57,000 miles on the odometer, this last-of-the-line Type 930 Turbo is an exciting opportunity not to be missed by any serious Porsche collector or enthusiast.
