Forever Alter Your Standard of Performance ~ It was the year 1973 when Porsche unveiled its soon to be produced 911 Carrera Turbo to the public at the Frankfurt Auto Show. The wider body and curvaceous hips were similar to the newly introduced Carrera RS 3.0, but the badging along with the aggressive rear spoiler made it clear that Porsche was introducing a completely new animal. The introduction of the Turbo would develop yet another Porsche tradition. Simply known as the Turbo, the car was released in the spring of 1975 and with great anticipation and much fanfare introduced to the US market in 1976. When introduced, the car featured a 3.0 liter turbocharged flat six producing 0-60 times in under 5 seconds. In 1978, Porsche upgraded the engine to 3.3 liters and added an intercooler boosting the performance to 300 hp and top speeds at 165 mph making it the fastest car available for the US market. No other car of that time captured the attention of the automotive press and not enough could be written of the brutal performance and the sheer beauty that the car had to offer.

The one family owned, 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo offered here is nothing less than astonishing. The car was purchased new from Jess Jones Porsche Audi of West New York, NJ, where the original owner paid a 15000.00 dollar premium over the MSRP to get his hands on this super car. With standard appointments such as: all leather interior, alloy wheels, fog lights, intermittent wipers, power mirrors, power windows, fog lights, quartz clock, air conditioning, automatic heat control, 4 wheel ventilated disc brakes, reclining seats etc. these cars came highly optioned standard. This 930 was also ordered with desirable limited slip differential, heated outside mirrors and electric sliding roof. The car remained in the caring hands of the original owner until his passing in 2002 where ownership transferred to his grandson where the same care and appreciation for the car continued. Today at just 15624 documented miles, the car remains outstanding original. With the exception of an upgraded stereo and upgraded headlights (originals included), the car remains in 100 percent excellent original and unmolested condition. The original Black paint remains excellent as does the original black all leather interior including the dash. Every square inch of this vehicle demonstrates the care it has received for the last 35 years of ownership. Mechanically the car remains extremely fit retaining its spirited 3.3 liter turbo charged engine mated to its original smooth shifting 4 speed gearbox all harnesses by Porsche's Rack and Pinion Steering and 4 wheel ventilated disc brakes. The documentation is exceptional including original order form, original bill of sale, original window sticker, finance contract, life insurance papers for the loan, all original books with portfolio, original stationary portfolio, all paperwork from day one, original and complete tool roll, original key card with original keys, owner history, research material regarding the original purchase of the vehicle and added bonuses of vintage articles by car and driver, road and track, and playboy reviewing the 930. The mileage is fully documented by service records, state inspections, and registrations.

It is fair to say the all of the 70's 930 models are special. It represented a glory period for Porsche where their racetrack worthy developments were quickly implemented into their flagship 930's. The 930 was one of the fastest cars on the planet and the cars of the late 70's were comfortable race cars in luxurious leather. With the surging demand for significant Porsche's, the 79 930 leads the way for the Turbo charged era. A high quality, highly documented, low mile example such as this hardly comes to market and is an opportunity for collection and for investment.
