Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built before F.I.A approval for international racing was granted, and 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 for the European market, this example is finished in the desirable colour combination of red over tanned interior.
Supplied with a Porsche certificate of authenticity and service history, this wonderful matching numbers example has been subject to a recent renovation with costs in excess of €28,000 EUR.
Described to be in excellent condition throughout, this represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a matching numbers 930 Turbo finished in Guards red over brown. Offered with a very realistic reserve.
