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 with capacity increased to 3.0Litres and, of course, turbocharged with technology gained from Porsche's 917/30 Can-Am program. The bodywork received special treatment to produce 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. The final evolution of the 930 Turbo saw the engine capacity increased to 3299cc, with an improved intercooler and the fitting of the G50 transmission. By 1989, the final year of production, the power output had risen to 330bhp.
First registered in 1988, this UK right-hand drive 930 Turbo is in immaculate condition throughout and is supplied with a good history file, containing all of the original service books, some old MoTs, service invoices, and a spare key This superb example has only had just one owner from new and has only covered  32,752 miles from new. The vehicle was purchased from Swinford Motors-Porsche and will be supplied with a fresh year's MoT. The 930 Turbo was a high-spot in the 911's long family tree and remains one of the most recognized of all 911s with evocative bodywork and performance that became a benchmark. The 'red-braces' image has faded and these remarkable Porsches are now seen as very desirable by all Porsche enthusiasts.
