The 1976 production year brought the 930 Turbo to North America for the first time. Using developments Porsche had been perfecting for its racing cars, the 930 was the quickest, quietest, and fanciest high-performance street car Porsche had ever offered. It was also the first standard production Porsche to offer a turbo-charged system. Called “a dream car” by the press, it offered spectacular performance for a street car in the early 80s-0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds while pumping out 300 hp. The suspension and running gear were modified to handle this additional turbo power, while wider tires helped keep the car on the road. Finally, interior appointments on the 930 Turbo were luxurious compared to other model’s standard equipment, which helped make this wild ride all the more comfortable.
The first two years of the 930, (’76-’77) were 3.0 liter cars with 245 snappy horses in USA trim. In 1978 major improvements included increased size to 3.3 liters, an intercooler to keep the intake air colder, and bigger brakes. Horsepower from 1978 to 1989 was 282 hp for the USA -Canada models. Other than the bigger whale tail in 1978 to house the intercooler, the body remained unchanged through 1989. All cars were 4-speeds until 1989, when a 5-speed was finally made available. Turbos were not officially imported into the USA from 1980 to 1985, Canada did however get them officially.
We are pleased to present you with iconic Porsche styling – the 930 Turbo is a high performing relic from the late eighties just steeped in cool. In a Hellblau Metallic with Navy Leather, she is a sweet little coupe with curves in all the right places! They say that 30 is the prime time of your life. Why not enjoy all that past had to offer is this well maintained, Weissach serviced 930 Turbo. With Standard Fuchs 16×7 and 16×8 wheels and factory options that include Metallic Paint, European H4 Headlights with painted to body trim color covers, Wheel Locks, Sport Seats , Locking Differential and a Sport Steering Wheel with Elevated Hub. Aftermarket options include a Blaupunkt CD Player.
If you want something that is going to stay put in value and cool factor, look no further than our 930 Turbo. Previously serviced by Weissach for many years, this iconic Coupe was traded in to us and we were so happy to take her back. This coupe will not last long on our showroom floor. The 930 Turbo pictured here is complete with all original equipment. This is one of the nicest turbo’s we have had in a decade, very original and well cared for both mechanically and cosmetically and it shows.
Air cooled turbo cars are essentially on a massive value upswing and its hard for us to put a fair value on this car and so we are going to let the market decide the price here. Accepting offers !
