1987 Porsche 930 Turbo Coupe

IMG_1358_2

Much of the Porsche 911’s development had resulted from the factory’s racing program, and it was the then Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, which spurred the development of ‘Project 930’ – the legendary 911 Turbo.

  • Asking price: $125,000
  • Chassis no. WP0JB0934HS050900
  • Engine no. 68H00913

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.

  • Bosch Fuel Injection
  • 282bhp at 5,550rpm
  • 4-Speed Manual Transaxle
  • 4-Wheel Independent Suspension
  • 4-Wheel Disc Brakes

*A low-mileage California car from new

*One of the most raw and exciting production cars ever built

THE PORSCHE 930 TURBO

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 Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, which spurred the development of ‘Project 930’ – the legendary 911 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.

Delivered new to California and still in very original and well-maintained condition, this 930 is trimmed in the elegant Silver over Linen leather, and was ordered from new with a full complement of factory options including air conditioning, driver and passenger lumbar support, alarm system, cruise control, driving lights, and power windows, locks and sunroof. All of its original stickers, including door jamb label and under-hood trim label are still present along with its original tool roll, air compressor kit, receipts from recent service work, owner’s manual, and warranty and maintenance book – which has been stamped with service work done by the previous owners.

As is commonly known, Porsches of this era were finished at Porsche AG as ‘worldwide chassis’ meaning that many have a different prefix in the stamped VIN as the one the car is identified under. This car was given worldwide chassis number WP0ZZZ93ZHS050900, as stamped on its chassis-tub, but was then assigned the US-market specific VIN of WP0JB0934HS050900 once it was eventually slated for US delivery. The car’s Porsche issued Certificate of Authenticity is also based on its ultimate US-market VIN number.

Retaining its original Blaupunkt radio — a rarely seen detail as most were swapped out with modern head units, correct Fuchs wheels, and showing 65,000 miles — a figure corroborated as original by its clean CarFax report, 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 tires
