The Porsche 930 Turbo was a genuine ‘Supercar’ that defined the Seventies and Eighties, and was one of the fastest production cars available at the time. It was first seen at the 1973 Paris Auto Show and full production commenced two years later. The basic engine underpinnings came from the Carrera 2.7RS which was increased to 3.0 Litres and, of course, turbo charged with technology gleaned from Porsche’s 917/30 Can-Am programme.
The bodywork received special treatment to produce one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear whale-tail. The brakes came directly from the Porsche 917 race car. The final evolution of the 930 Turbo saw the engine capacity increased to 3299cc, with improved upgrades on the intercooler and introduction of the G50 transmission.
This 1986 930 received a 930/66 S engine as certified by Porsche when it was delivered new in September of that year. Only 32 other examples were ever produced with this engine type from Porsche’s exclusive ‘special wishes’ programme. Other new order options included limited slip differential, sports seats and an electric sunroof.
From a collection, and presented today with just 86,000 km, in its original colour of P5 Grand Prix white and with its original black leather interior, it is in excellent overall condition. The car is offered with its original book pack, with a good service history and is mechanically excellent.
The 930 Turbo was in production for an incredible 14 years and is the epitome of supercar design. There were only ever 33 Turbo S cars to leave the factory. This car is therefore arguably the most collectable of the 21,589 cars built, which represents an exclusive and exhilarating ownership proposition.
