For Sale: 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo in Miami, Florida

Vehicle Description

In 1974, Porsche shocked the world at the Paris Auto Show by introducing their first turbocharged production car—the 930 Turbo or “Turbo Carrera”. From 1975 to 1977 the Turbo Carrera shattered records, dropped jaws and scared the best of the best back into their comfy naturally aspirated Carreras. Now, with that in mind, you’d think that Porsche would tame it down a bit, right? Think again. In 1978 Porsche significantly increased power by jumping from a 3.0L flat-six to a 3.3L, mated to a 4-speed aluminum 915 gearbox featuring taller gears and a heavier clutch—’78 was also the first year that the 930 came with a much-needed Intercooler. The 3.3L flat-six remained with the Turbo line-up for the balance of the G-Series run (’78-’89), all the way through to the 964 iteration (’90-’92)—no, we are not forgetting about the massively tuned 3.6 built for the series two 964 Turbo (’93-’94)—until a redesigned 3.6L from the 993 Turbo came about in 1995. 

Photographed here, our 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo is finished in its original specification of Zermatt Silver Metallic over a Doric Gray & Black Leather interior. Having spent the majority of its life in Colorado, this exceptional example comes extensively documented back to September of 1984—complete with a hand-written service log and corresponding invoices. The car appears to have had the frond end resprayed while the body from the front fenders back may be original. The interior is quite special—and original—with a perfectly balanced contrast of Doric Gray and Black leather throughout.
