In 1975 Porsche achieved a new level of excellence with the 930
Turbo Coupe, which blasted from 0-60 in a hair-raising 4.9 seconds
and reached 156 mph. The first-generation 930 introduced
wide-flared fenders and the “whale-tail” spoiler – fair warning of
the performance it delivered.
Imported and federalized by its original owner, a doctor living in Virginia, this second-generation 930 is one of 820 European models built in 1979. Finished in Guards Red with black leather interior, rare Turbo billboard graphics, and a factory sunroof, chassis 9309700373 indicates less than 26,000 miles and presents as an extraordinary survivor, having been off the road for the 15 years prior to 2015. We have registration and receipts dating back to 1983 documenting a 30 year single ownership. This car was abide and put away, it runs and drive like new and its original condition is superb.
The 930 was kept in climate-controlled storage for most of its existence, and the benefits are clearly evident. In 2015, the long-dormant 930’s paint and underside were expertly cleaned and detailed, revealing the full extent of its outstanding condition and original paint. In addition to the cosmetic work the Porsche received, an engine-out reseal and service totaling $26,000 in restoration, which also included new head studs and rebuilt turbo. Work was performed by world renowned Porsche specialists at Carolina Coach Crafters.
