Description

Much of the Porsche 911’s development had resulted from the factory’s racing programme, and it was the then Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, which spurred the development of ‘Project 930’ – the legendary 911 Turbo. In production from April 1975, the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0 litre Carrera RSR engine, in road trim a combination that delivered 260bhp for a top speed of 155mph. But the Turbo wasn’t just about top speed, it was also the best-equipped 911 and amazingly flexible – hence only four speeds in the gearbox – being capable of racing from a standstill to 100mph in 14 seconds.

This European specification car was first registered in 1985 and was delivered new in black with black leather interior, along with factory 16” Fuchs alloys. Described as ‘like new’, this problem-free 930 has recently undergone a restoration.

During the restoration, which was carried out by marque specialists, the car received a strip and respray in black (the colour it has always been), and sports a refurbished interior, including carpet, dashboard, headliner, seats, seatbelts and door cards.

Mechanically excellent, the original engine received an engine rebuild and a rebuilt gearbox less than 1000 miles ago. Again, the front and rear suspension were uprated, and mono-ball front strut towers have been fitted. All new hoses, brakes and a polished inter-cooler were installed. Most interestingly, the car received an IROC front and rear bumper along with a whale tail spoiler.

The vehicle is supplied with a 1985 sales brochure, along with its service book and wallet. With an MoT until July 2016, this car is supplied with UK V5 registration. With the value of standard 930 turbos now at around £100,000 and with RSR IROC cars offered at telephone number figures, this 1985 turbo provides the power, looks and performance without the astronomical price tag.
