It wasn’t until 1972 when Porsche started toying with the idea of pulling from their race technology and putting a turbo in a 911, which we got in 1975. Even though the intent was to gain homologation for the ‘76 racing season, the 930 immediately gained popularity among consumers.
1977 was the last of the 3.0 liter Turbos, with slight improvements in its third and final year. Most notably the K-Jetronic fuel system was refined, the gearbox reinforced, thicker brake rotors to combat fade, and upgraded gear set to match the larger 16” wheel size. Overall the improvements led to the most exceptional driving experience one can have in a 3.0 930, and a unique experience only one can explain after spending time behind the wheel of one.
When the previous owner purchased this Turbo at auction it was, by all means, a good car. A good car simply was not enough, as he was in the pursuit of perfection. 930 No. 328 traded hands as a black 911, but thankfully was stripped down and resprayed in its original Grand Prix White. The original interior is in immaculate condition, showing little to zero wear on the leather, carpet, pedals, headliner, etc. The Sports seats are free of any creases, and the bolsters are as supportive as they were when new. Three years ago the engine and transmission were removed for a complete mechanical overhaul to satisfy the previous owner’s high expectations. After satisfying his exacting standards at a great cost, this 930 is fully vetted in great detail and fits into the top tier of early Turbos.
Today, this 930 has traveled only 23k miles and truly a magnificent example both inside and out. The rare optional sport seats, electric sunroof, and limited-slip differential only add to the experience when behind the wheel. From its release the 911 Turbo was revered as one of Porsche’s most iconic models, and to this day rank among the greatest sports cars of all time.
