HISTORY OF THE 930 TURBO CARRERA
Much of the Porsche 911 Turbo Carrrera's development had resulted from the factory's racing program. The rules for FIA Group 4 homologation required 400 road cars to be built, which spurred the development of 'Project 930' - the legendary 911/930 Turbo. The turbocharged 3.0 liter engine in road trim developed 260bhp with propelled the Turbo Carrera from and standstill to 100 mph in 14 seconds and resulted in a top speed of 155mph. Porsche's first road going super car, this meant it was on par or faster that its contemporary's in the day, the Aston Martin's V8 Vantage, Ferrari's 512 Berlinetta Boxer and Lamborghini's Countach, certainly excellent company. Legendary racing driver Paul Frère stated "It offers the finest blend of ultimate performance and refinement I have ever come across. This is the first year of the Porsche Turbo in the USA and a rare find. This extraordinarily well-restored Turbo Carrera is the 232nd example of 530 car model run for the 1976 Porsche model year.
