The 930 Turbo was the fastest 911 in the range throughout its production life and evolved into a better and better car to drive as the factory improved both handling and brakes to cope with the serious 330 BHP on offer.

This particular car has been cossetted and well maintained throughout its life, with little recent use during the last five years of ownership with our private vendor. Supplied new by Charles Follett of Mayfair in it's original and extremely rare colour combination of Moss Green Metallic with a Mint Green leather trim - it was one of the smartest cars to leave their prestigious forecourt in the day.

It has had a recent paint refresh by leading Porsche specialist and body shop, Francis Tuthill Ltd., and Wrightune rebuilt both the engine and gearbox (bill on file for £18,719) for our fastidious vendor, who has a very special collection of rare and exciting Porsche models.

In fact, the history file shows lots of maintenance and servicing throughout the car's life which has consisted of just 62,600 genuine and warranted miles, most of which were covered in the car's first decade. There is also a Porsche certificate of Authenticity present.

Values of the infamous 930 have both risen and fallen in recent times with the market now settling between £80 and £100,000 for original UK cars with good service history. This car is therefore exceptional value at the moment and being a rare colour and genuine car, it represents a great buying opportunity for the astute Porsche collector.
