One of only 1,200 Turbos imported to the US in 1979, this example
was first sold by California Porsche/Audi in San Francisco, in
January 1980, to Ronald Tremper Jr. of San Luis Obispo. Temper's
father purchased his own new 930 two years earlier and served as
inspiration for his son's acquisition. The listed MSRP for his new
Turbo was $45,270, however, Tremper would end up paying $58,500 for
the car, an almost 25% dealer mark-up for what was a highly sought
after last-year U.S. specification model. In 2021 money his
out-the-door price of $62,782 would be $241,680!
Paying over sticker for a Turbo was common in 1979, as changing
emissions regulations saw to it that this was the last year that
the Turbo would be brought into the U.S., however, it was finally
re-introduced in 1986 with a lower horsepower emission-controlled
engine. The rear-engine 911 was also rumored to be on its way out
with the introduction of the 928 and other front-engine Porsches,
and as such, buyers and dealers alike were speculating that the car
would double in value within a few years.
Tremper was 27 years old when he purchased his 930, and took out
the longest loan possible to ensure he could afford the payments.
The Turbo would not be paid off until December of 1988. More of a
treasured possession than a car, the Anthracite Grey 930 lived on
the carpet at his converted garage/office until he sold it in 2009.
He would only take it out for special occasions, with the
occasional drives tallying up to only 1,275 miles in 30 years. The
longest journey ventured was the 256-mile drive home from the
dealership at the time of original purchase.
A huge Mopar fan and collector, Tremper would go on to sell the
Turbo to Mopar expert Juilian Steuer of Restorations by Julius in
Los Angeles, CA, who would keep the car in his private collection
until being acquired by Bruce Canepa.
This incredible paint-to-sample Anthracite Grey 930 Turbo has only
accumulated 2,495 miles since new, and is in 100% factory-original
unrestored condition. If you want to experience what a Porsche 930
looked like when it sat on the showroom floor in 1979, this is it.
The one deviation from stock U.S. specification is the European H4
headlamps, upgraded by Bruce Canepa. The original U.S. spec
headlamps and surrounds come with the car, as do the original
pristine condition date-code-correct Pirelli P7 tires.
Since purchase by Bruce Canepa the 930 has been thoroughly
inspected and serviced. Over 250 hours of concours level
preparation have been invested into the car to ensure that it
presented even better than its 2,495 miles would indicate. Canepa
has shown the Turbo at the 2014 Porsche Parade Concours, and the
2014 Carmel-By-The-Sea Concours on the Avenue where it won Best in
Class, and became the first car to score a perfect 100 points in
its class. Currently on display at Canepa's facility in Scotts
Valley, CA, and impeccably maintained, we are confident in saying
that there is no finer example of a Porsche 930 in the world.
