1989 Porsche 930 Turbo

Description

“It offers the finest blend of ultimate performance and refinement I have ever come across…” – Paul Frère on the Porsche 911 Turbo.

Much of the Porsche 911’s development had resulted from the factory’s racing program, and it was the then FIA Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, which spurred the development of ‘Project 930’ – the legendary 911/930 Turbo. In production from April 1975, the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0-liter 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.

What set the 930 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.”

Today, this era-evoking 930 Turbo presents beautifully throughout,  with  many original finishes throughout.  It retains its original, matching numbers engine. Combining the unmistakable looks of a classic Porsche, the powerful Turbo motor, and the collectability that goes hand in hand with its low production figures, this extraordinary 930 turbo will not disappoint.
