About the 930 Turbo:

The Porsche 930 was manufactured between 1975 and 1989, known to the public as the 911 Turbo. It was the maker's top-of-the-range 911 model for its entire production duration and, at the time of its introduction, was the fastest production car available in Germany.

Porsche began experimenting with turbocharging technology on their race cars during the late 1960s, and in 1972 began development on a turbocharged version of the 911. Porsche originally needed to produce the car in order to comply with homologation regulations.

Ernst Fuhrmann adapted the turbo-technology originally developed for the 917/30 CAN-AM car and applied it to the 3.0 liter flat-six used in Carrera RS 3.0, thus creating what Porsche internally dubbed as the 930. The car utilizes a single KKK turbocharger.

Total power output from the engine was 256HP at 5,500 rpm and 243 lb�ft of torque at 4,000 rpm, much more than the standard Carrera it was based on. In order to ensure that the platform could make the most of the higher power output, a revised suspension, larger brakes and a stronger gearbox became part of the package.

A "whale tail" rear spoiler was installed to help vent more air to the engine and to create more downforce at the rear of the vehicle, and wider rear wheels with upgraded tires combined with flared wheel arches were implemented in order to increase the car's width and grip, making it more stable.

The 930 proved very fast but also very demanding to drive, and due to its short wheelbase and rear engine layout, was prone to oversteer and turbo-lag. It acquired the nickname "the Widowmaker" after several crashes and deaths attributed to its handling characteristics, which were unfamiliar to many drivers.

Porsche made its first and most significant changes to the 930 for 1978 model year, enlarging the engine bore by 2 mm to a total displacement of 3,299 cc and adding an air-to-air intercooler. By cooling the pressurized air charge, the intercooler helped increase power output to 296HP at 5,500 rpm and 304 lb�ft of torque at 4,000 rpm. The rear 'whale tail' spoiler was re-profiled and raised slightly to make room for the intercooler and the spoiler was now infamously called the 'tea tray' spoiler by the enthusiasts. The suspension benefitted from new anti-roll bars, firmer shock absorbers and larger diameter rear torsion bars. Porsche also upgraded the brakes to units similar to those used on the 917 race car.

Changing emissions regulations in Japan and the United States forced Porsche to withdraw the 930 from those markets in 1980.

Porsche reintroduced the 930 to the Japanese and U.S. markets in 1986 with an emission-controlled engine having a power output of 282HP at 5500 rpm and 278 lb�ft at 4000 rpm of torque.

Kremer Racing had originally begun offering conversion kits for 930 Turbo models which included front bodywork like the famous 935 race car in 1981. In 1982, TAG Heuer co-owner Mansour Ojjeh commissioned Porsche to develop a road-legal version of the 935 race car. The final product was developed using a body shell of the 930 and fitting fabricated 935 body panels to it. The one-off also had the suspension and brakes shared with the 935 race car. Other special features of the car included special paintwork called Brilliant Red by the manufacturer, BBS wheels and the use of the 3.3-litre turbocharged flat-6 engine of the 934 race car. The car proved very popular among enthusiasts and prospective buyers began to demand a similar car as a factory offering. Porsche offered a "Flachbau" ("flatnose" or "slantnose") 930 under the "Sonderwunschprogramm" (special order program) from 1986 model year, an otherwise normal 930 with a 935-style slantnose instead of the normal 911 front end with the replacement of the famous "bug eye" headlamps with pop-up units.

Each Flachbau unit was handcrafted by remodeling the front fenders option code M505 for the US and M506 elsewhere. A limited number of units were produced due to the fact that the package commanded a high premium price, an initial premium of up to 60% over the standard price. 948 units were built in total with 160 of them being imported to the US. The flat nose greatly contributed to the aerodynamics of the car and enabled it to accelerate from 0-60MPH 4.85 seconds and attain a top speed of 173 mph.
