Freshly serviced and ready for it’s new home, this early 930 is bitch’in! Delivered new with it’s rare sport seats and sunroof, the Turbo has only traveled 23K miles from new.
Years ago 930 No. 328 traded hands as a black 911, but thankfully stripped down and resprayed in its original Grand Prix White. It continues to be extremely good and is a testament to the quality of craftsmanship. The interior has never been molested in anyway, showing little to zero wear on the leather, carpet, pedals, headliner, etc. Three years ago the engine and transmission dropped and completely gone through, resulting in what you would expect mechanically and simply a blast to drive.
Let’s just call the previous owner slightly obsessive compulsive, because when he bought the Turbo at auction he received a good car. However, after satisfying his OCD at a great cost, this 930 is fully vetted in great detail and fits into the top tier of early Turbos.
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. Nineteen seventy seven 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 refined, reinforced gearbox, thicker brakes, and upgraded transmission to match the larger 16” wheel size. Overall the more popular driving experience one can have in a 3.0 930.
The 930 Turbo remains as possibly Porsche’s most iconic model, and a sports car icon in general. Evolving over 14 years, certainly an experience one can only explain from behind the wheel of Porsche’s streetable Turbos.
