what makes this car special?
The development of the Porsche 911 was fueled by its racing program and Porsche first experimented with Turbocharging on their 917 Can Am race cars. The purpose for introducing the 930 Turbo was to gain homologation for the 1976 sportscar racing season ensuring that the 930 Turbo became the first production car to fully utilize Turbo charging
Initially introduced with a capacity of 3.0l with a KKK Turbo producing 256 BHP, in 1978 the capacity was enlarged to 3,3l and an air to air intercooler was added increasing power to 300 BHP.
Prior to the launch of the Turbo, Porsche was known for handling and driving dynamics rather than raw power, but this changed with the Turbo. Since then the words Turbo and Porsche have become synonymous with performance
This is 3.3l example produced in 1981 that has recently been through a major refurbishment programme (nut and bolt) by specialists Bailey Cars in Boksburg.
