Amidst a market of tame, underperforming sportscars, Porsche’s 930 Turbo crashed the party at the 1974 Paris Auto Show. It left all the competition in the dust with its air-cooled 3.3-litre, flat-six engine mated to an exhaust-driven KKK turbocharger that could nail 0-60 in 4.9 seconds when a new Ferrari could garner a mere 8 seconds. The provocative flared fenders and “tea tray” spoiler over Fuchs wheels made for a blacktop eating machine that was as captivating to drive as it was to gaze at. The 930 captures all the high-octane, cold war swagger of Germany in the ‘80s. Just pop Kraftwerk into the cassette player and revel in all that was wild and wonderful about the fluorescent era in this low-mileage, immaculate example.

Soon to be the fastest production car in Germany, Porsche developed the 930 Turbo from their 911 Carrera in an effort to accommodate the Group 4 homologation rules for FIA racing that required production of 400 road cars. The Turbo was captivatingly styled with a front spoiler, flared fenders, rockers, rear stone guards, and the iconic “tea tray” rear spoiler, which made for an inimitable look that is still as provocative today as it was over forty years ago. Porsche married the KKK turbocharger to the 911 Carrera’s legendary engine then mated it to a swift four-speed gearbox. Torsion bar suspension was equipped with Bilstein dampers and braking was perfectly executed by four-piston opposed calipers clamping cross-drilled and vented rotors. A new icon was born. The car was released in Europe in 1975 and in the U.S. in 1976 to deafening fanfare. By 1978, the 930’s bore was enlarged, and the engine grew to 3.3 litres with a new air-to-air intercooler. Shortly thereafter, emissions regulations led Porsche to pull the 930 from the U.S. market in 1980, but they wouldn’t eschew the profitable market forever and the 930 made its celebrated return to our shores in 1986 with an emission-controlled 3.3-litre that delivered 282 horsepower, 5,500 rpms, a four-speed gearbox and the ultimate thrill in driver enjoyment. Consequently, the 930’s absence from our shores from 1980 to 1986 has made the 930 Turbos all the more desirable here at home and their value only continues to rise.

A true U.S. 930 Turbo, this timeless black on black 1987 Porsche 911/930 Turbo was delivered new to Coral Cars in Indiana and lived a pampered existence in Ohio, New York and Florida before the consignor’s ownership in Louisiana. With just over 15,000 miles on the odometer, this 930 boasts a clean CARFAX® and presents in immaculate condition. Additional factory options include a raised steering hub, limited slip differential, electric sunroof, and heated, electric sports seats, which are upholstered predominantly in black leather. Original Turbo-branded floormats, power windows, air-conditioning and Blaupunkt stereo complete the well-equipped cabin. This original car underwent a complete, engine-out servicing in July of 2020 at Porsche of Fort Myers, Florida, which included a brake fluid flush, oil change, valve adjustment, a refitting of the catalytic converter, plus new valve cover gaskets, filters, belts, accelerator cable and sound insulation pad. It has also been equipped with new Pirelli tires that wrap its desirable, staggered Fuchs 6-inch wheels that feature polished lips and black centers. Accompanying the sale is the original window sticker, the clean CARFAX® report, a clean Florida title, and a tome of servicing documents.

The definitive sports car of its era with a body that’s never made the ‘80s look so good, this newly serviced, low mileage 930 Turbo is poised for sheer driver engagement and another lifetime of heart-pumping fun. Finding a 930 Turbo in this specification, mileage, and condition is becoming increasingly more difficult. A true performance car, this stunning example would be a noteworthy addition to any collection and equally enjoyable to use as a standalone weekend getaway car.
