Description

Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built before F.I.A approval for international racing was granted, led to the creation of ‘Project 930’ – the legendary Porsche 911 Turbo. Production began in April 1975: the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0 litre RSR engine, which in road trim delivered 260bhp and a top speed of 155mph. As impressive as this was, there was more to the Turbo than just top speed. It was also the best equipped 911 produced until that point, amazingly flexible – hence there being only a four speed gearbox – as well as being formidably fast. Indeed, standstill to 100mph was achieved in a mere 14 seconds.

 Borrowing the flared wheel arches and ‘tea tray’ rear spoiler from the Carrera model, the Turbo had aggressive looks to match the performance. It also incorporated the most luxurious interior yet seen in a 911, with leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows.

One of only 644 Turbos manufactured in 1976 this lovely matching numbers 3.0 litre example has been fully restored in 2016 with documented costs in excess of €30,000. Reading a very modest c.45,800km on its odometer, the car comes offered with its very rare original high-tech Blaupunkt radio, fabspeed inox. exhaust system and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
