1975 Porsche 911 Turbo RHD
Story and History
The year 1975 was a game changer for Porsche with the introduction of its Carrera Turbo. After a year of being bogged down with newly enacted emissions standards and horsepower diving to new lows, the performance car market was about to get its last rites. Porsche’s solution single handedly breathed new life into sports car market by a kind of enhanced CPR: Force air in and push it out. The Turbo era had arrived.
Assembling only 284 examples for the world meant only the well heeled needed to apply and it didn’t hurt to have a close connection to the folks at Stuttgart.
The example here is nearly unique! This 930 is right hand drive! Porsche built only 31 RHD turbos for the world and demand definitely outpaced supply. Our Turbo Carrera had been fully restored in its original Salmon metallic with white leather interior. The 911 “Safety Stripes” and the “Porsche Script” were re-applied exactly as they were when the car was new. A good friend brought the car to us after restoration and he asked us to sort it and “nail” the details. The car was shown at the Quail Lodge event in Monterey last year and it is now available in our showroom.
