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

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.

This car is one of the factory “special wishes” range from the mid-1980s era to celebrate the racing heritage of the 935 (Moby Dick) Le Mans cars from that time. From the 948 cars produced between 1983 and 1989.

The car on offer today was ordered new in Silver metallic with black partial leather, as a Flachbau “Flatnose” as confirmed by the Porsche certificate of authenticity in the cars file. Mechanically, the car is very good condition; The car’s original matching numbers engine, and is mated to its original G50 specification gearbox.

Looking period correct with color-coded Fuchs wheels, this largely original 930 Turbo will no doubt continue to thrill and excite. The experience at the wheel of this beast will provide the closest thing to a time machine, taking you back to an era when electric nannies like stability control were barely wisps in the burnt rubber emanating from this Turbo’s massive rear tyres. The Flachbau is a model currently very much in vogue for the automotive collector – offered with a highly realistic reserve, chassis 5050485 provides a unique chance to become a member of a very rare and beautiful 1980s supercar club!

Mit seinen farbkodierten Rädern von Fuchs wird dieser original 930 Turbo ohne Zweifel weiterhin begeistern, und dieses “Biest” sie zurück in eine vergangene Ära versetzen. Der Flachbau ist ein zurzeit sehr trendiges Modell für den Sammler – angeboten mit einem sehr realistischen Mindestgebot, stellt Fahrgestellnr. 5050485 eine einzigartige Chance dar, Mitglied eines sehr seltenen und wunderschönen Superauto-Clubs der 1980er Jahre zu werden!
