Description

What set the 911 Turbo apart from its peers was the relaxed way this stupefying performance was delivered. Comparing the Turbo to similarly quick ‘he-man’ cars, such as the Holman & Moody-tuned Cobra 427 and the Ford GT40, Motor’s Roger Bell reckoned what made the Porsche so different was that it “hurls you forward with similar velocity but in an uncannily quiet and effortless way. To be shoved so hard in the back that you need high-back seats to keep your head on, yet neither to feel nor hear anything more than a muffled hum, is a very odd sensation indeed in a car.” The Turbo’s characteristic flared wheel arches and ‘tea tray’ rear spoiler had already been seen on the Carrera model, while the interior was the most luxurious yet in a 911, featuring leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. For 1978, the Turbo’s engine was enlarged to 3.3 litres, gaining an inter-cooler in the process; power increased to 300bhp and the top speed of what was the fastest-accelerating road car of its day went up to 160mph.

Having recently undergone an engine re-build by Porsche specialists in 2017 this particular example is said to be in good overall condition. New wheels and tyres have been fitted as well as new spark plugs and leads. The car is showing 63km and has a stamped service book. Receipts for works carried out are included and all the electrics are functioning as expected. There is some RUF equipment that has been added to the car and we are told the engine is matching and the interior is original. A fantastic opportunity to invest in a well presented Porsche 930 turbo.
