57,622 ORIGINAL BOX A MILES
The history on this car is that it began life as a 911 SC Targa. In 1978, a customer of Holbert's Porsche outside of Philadelphia wanted a 930 Turbo Targa. Porsche did not build this car at the time (not until 1987 would Porsche build this car) so Holbert's Porsche ordered in a 1978 Talbot yellow 911 SC Targa and Al Holbert's race shop built this car to factory 930 specs for their customer. It has big brakes, coil over suspension, 915 LSD 5 Speed Transmission, B&B Headers, Bilstein Coilover Suspension and Much More.
Since Al Holbert was a Porsche factory racecar driver, he worked very closely with the race dept. Porsche was aware of this car being built and in 1978 Porsche also built two '78 930 Turbo Targas to test the concept of a turbo cars ability to handle the power without roof frame support. You can read about these two cars in Excellence magazine, issue #50 December 1994.
