The Porsche 930 Turbo was a genuine 'Supercar' that defined the Seventies and Eighties and was one of the fastest production cars available at the time. It was first seen at the 1973 Paris Auto Show and full production commenced two years later. The basic engine underpinnings came from the Carrera 2.7RS which was increased to 3.0 Litres and, of course, turbocharged with technology gained from Porsche's 917/30 Can-Am program. The bodywork received special treatment resulting in one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear whale-tail and the brakes came directly from the Porsche 917 race car.
This, UK supplied, 930 Turbo was delivered by Charles Follett Ltd. to a Mr.Peter Swift on the 6th February 1980. Presented in Grand Prix White with Black leather sports seats, this iconic 80’s supercar has only covered 39,600 miles since that date and has been in our vendor’s possession since 2001.
The specification includes a four-speed manual gearbox, electric windows, electric mirrors, electric sunroof, air conditioning, Pirelli tyres all round, and the original tool kit is present. The car comes with a good service history and the original service book with many stamps present from various Porsche Specialists over the years. The latest stamp in the service book comes from Porsche specialists ‘Strasse’ in June of last year. Our vendor spent over £4,000 at this time to bring the car completely up to date and ready to go. AET-Turbos reconditioned the turbos while the Prestige Bodyshop in Barnsley sorted a few minor paint blemishes on the front bumper. Strasse finished the work with a regular service and the car has covered little mileage since. Indeed, this car really is our vendor's pride and joy and he has patently looked after it with the love and care it deserves.
The car is accompanied by an MOT until June 2017 and some trophies from past ‘Porsche In The Park’ Concours events in the early 2000s. Topical, honest and very presentable, this 930 Turbo looks like an exciting proposition, especially taking into account the fast-growing 80’s turbo Porsche market – don’t miss out!
