In 1975, Porsche introduced the 930 model: a turbocharged upgrade
of the 911. It was ranked first as the quickest car of the 1970s
with a 0-60mph time of 4.9 seconds, which was almost a half a
second faster than second place. The speed the 930 could achieve
helped it earn the nickname the "Widowmaker".
Black Horse Garage is proud to represent this 1978 Porsche 930 in
beautiful copper-brown paint and tan leather interior. It is not
only attractive color combination, but very fitting for the time
This 930 is an original numbers matching car with under 14,000
original miles on it. It is only one of 461 that were built for the
United States. It comes with the desirable options of factory A/C
and a sunroof. It also has a Blaupunkt cassette stereo and Fuchs
wheels. This is more than just an exhilarating driving vehicle; it
is of investment-grade quality. This 930 is sure to continue to
grow in value and worthy of the growing interest in the vehicle for
years to come.
This 1978 model was the first of the 930s to have an air-to-air
intercooler. The engine bore was also enlarged by 2mm for a total
displacement of 3.3 liters for the turbocharged flat-6 engine. All
of this increased the power output to 296 horsepower at 5,500 rpms.
The famous "whale tail" was raised slightly to make room for the
intercooler and Porsche enthusiasts gave the spoiler a new
nickname, the "tea tray".
