The Porsche 930 Turbo

A large part of the Porsche 911 development had resulted from the factory’s racing program. It was the then FIA Group 4 homologation rules which required 400 road cars to be built for the development of ‘Project 930’ which later on became the legendary 911/930 Turbo.
Its production started on 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.

What set the 930 Turbo apart from its predecessors was the relaxed way its staggering performances were delivered. Although the Turbo’s characteristic flared wheel arches and “tea tray” rear spoiler had already been seen on the Carrera model, the interior was the most luxurious yet seen in a 911, featuring leather upholstery, air conditioning, and electric windows. In 1978, the Turbo’s engine was enlarged to 3.3-liters, gaining an intercooler in the process. Furthermore, power increased to 300bhp and the top speed of what was then the fastest-accelerating road car of its day went up to 160mph. Due to strong emission regulation in the US, the Turbo was not imported to the U.S. market between 1979 and 1984, but returned in 1985 when equipped with upgraded Motronic engine management systems. A Cabriolet version was also introduced.

This Motorcar

The car we are offering here is chassis WPOZZZ93ZHS020062 with original engine 67H00333. It is a desirable European version and was supplied new to the German market, registered for first time on 15-09-1988. Its stunning original colour combination was Felsengrün metallic (dark green / grey metallic) with dark green leather to the interior, which it still retains today. In the early 2000s the car was purchased by French enthusiasts A. Brun at local Ferrari dealership in Cannes. At the time if his purchased the car was reportedly just one owner from new. Brun used the car sparingly but kept it until 2014. By 2012 he had the odometer replaced at 9,330 km. By 2014 the car was sold again to famous Swiss dealer Lukas Hüni AG. Upon his purchase and due to a long standing still period of time, Hüni commissioned an extensive refurbishment on the car, both cosmetic and mechanic. The car was then acquired by the actual owner in 2016 who had further work done to the car by marque specialists. Since its odometer change the car displays today 9,000 km, which makes the whole original mileage reportedly circa. 19,500 km.

Offered with recent maintenance records and in excellent condition throughout, this example represents a great opportunity to acquire a very special European 930 Turbo Cabriolet finished in a most desirable colour combination.
