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, turbo charged with technology gleaned from Porsche’s 917/30 Can-Am programme.
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. 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 improved upgrades on the intercooler and introduction of the G50 transmission.
Finished in Ruby Red (L810), this particular 930 Turbo was delivered new in Germany to its proud first owner, Dr Keller from Heimenkirsh in Bavaria in March 1984. In 1997, the car was then imported to Norway where it only has had 2 more owners. The car is coming with an impeccable service history, always followed by official Porsche dealers either in Germany, either in Norway. The engine and gearbox also has been rebuild by a Porsche dealer, making this car in impeccable condition and very pleasurable to drive. It was in 1984 that Porsche produced the fastest of the 930 Turbos with exhilarating pace 0-60 4.6s with a top speed of 278 km/h. Therefore, the 1984 models are the cars in greatest demand.
