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 which increased power to 300 BHP. These performance improvements will get the 930 Turbo to 100km/h from a standstill in 5.4 seconds and will reach a top speed of just over 250km/h. The brake system was inherited from the Porsche 917 to assist in the best possible stopping time from high speeds.
The 930 Turbo’s unique exterior design is iconic and distinct from the rest of the 911 series. The rear arches have been stretched to accommodate the wide, deep dish wheels and tyres for added grip and the “whale tail” rear spoiler for added downforce and cooling, therefore increasing optimal performance.
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 a Porsche 930 Turbo 3.3l produced in 1984 that has recently had a major high quality cosmetic and mechanical overhaul and comes with desirable factory extras such a electric sunroof and air conditioning.
