Early November, 1975 Build - Highly Desired First-Year, U.S. Spec Turbo Carrera

The 911 Turbo arrived on North American shores for the 1976 model year. Reworked to be emissions friendly, the North American model was officially coined the "Turbo Carrera" by marketing. Porsche continued to produce the 3.0-liter 930 through the 1977 model year, before switching to an intercooled 3.3-liter engine. In total there were 2,819 of the first generation 3.0-liter 930 Turbo Carrera produced, with only 1,237 originally destined for the United States.

9306800116 was completed in November of 1975 as a non-catalyst, U.S. model and sold new in Massachusetts to its first owner, Mr. Utley of Marblehead, MA. The Turbo soon changed hands in 1978 at 7,200 miles to its long-term caretaker Mr. Goudreau of Swampscott, MA. Goudreau retained ownership for the next 17 years or about 20,000 enjoyable miles later. #116 received a service in March 1995 before its sale and including a new K27 Turbo. The Englert's of Bethel, CT would go on to faithfully document and care for the Turbo thereafter. An engine rebuild and mechanical freshening was commissioned in early 1996 at 28,200 miles by Fairfield County Motorsport, who regularly maintained the Porsche thereafter. The 911 was fitted with adjustable rear spring plates and 993 front calipers for better performance. This Carrera Turbo's most recent steward took possession in 2011 and later that year ordered an engine reseal and thorough powerplant freshening at 50,500 miles. Goldsborough continued to upkeep and cosmetically improve the car with attention to rubber and plastic bits, sunroof felts, authentic Porsche issued Fuchs wheels and center caps. Please note* the car is fitted with 16" wheels, opposed to 15's as originally delivered, due to the larger front brakes.

This striking example of the highly desired 3.0L 911 Turbo displays just 50,800 miles along with a nicely detailed and very solid body and undercarriage. Beautiful paint and interior. Etched glass remains fitted around, as does the anodized trim. Earlier "non-frosted" Bosh European headlights are fitted, while the correct Bosch fog lamps remain. Both paint and cabin finishes present very well for their age. The leather upholstery appears original, including the carpets, dash and trim - with supplemental Turbo script floor mats for added protection. A later Blaupunkt radio head unit was installed many years ago. All electrical and mechanical auxiliaries are in excellent working order, including the clock, sunroof and (cool, not cold) air conditioning - with an exception to the headlight washers.

Performance is exceptionally strong through the powerband, without stumble or complaint. The 911 comes complete with original Dealer's Brochure, 11/75 date coded Spare, Tool Roll, Jack and Porsche COA.

An example worth close attention from enthusiasts and collectors alike. It is with good measure that these early 930 Turbos are becoming less and less available on the market as they represent the new era in Porsche engineering and design. If you have been looking for a fantastic first generation 930 Turbo, we highly encourage serious consideration of this great example.
