Description

The 930 itself is a rare car. From 1978-1989 less than 15,000 cars were built over an 11-year period. By modern Porsche standards, that’s not a lot of cars at all. And the Cabriolet is, of course, even more rare. It was introduced in February 1987, remaining on sale (and, with the Targa, outliving the original Coupe) until July 1989. Less than 3,000 were built over the three-year period, with the vast majority of them going to the US and Canada. It’s suggested that less than 650 cars were actually sent to Europe.

In 1988, 242 Cabriolets were produced for Europe, compared to 677 Coupes and a meagre 136 Targas. That shows what a find this model is: one of 242 1988-build cars across the whole of Europe. Research would show how many still remain, but you can bet it isn’t 242. 930s are becoming cherished cars now, used less and less as age and historical relevance start to factor heavily on owners’ minds. 930 Cabriolets are even thinner on the ground.

This, then, is a rare opportunity indeed: the chance to buy a genuine 930 Cabriolet. Finished in Black with a matching Black leather interior, this original German 911 Turbo (930) Cabriolet is one of only 242 units produced.

The car has been subject to extensive restoration work, yet is still showing only 64000 recorded kilometres from new. As such we are told the 930 is both mechanically and cosmetically in excellent condition.

Fitted with wider RUF wheels (9 inch at the front and 10 inch for the rear), in addition to a Momo steering wheel and sports exhaust, this car both looks and sounds incredible. Inside the 930 is fitted with a Porsche Classic Radio Navigation, usefully with interfaces for external music sources and Bluetooth. This 930 Cabriolet is a great example of one of the most special of all variants of the 911.
