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.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this striking, 1979 Porsche 930 Carrera Turbo Coupe for all to consider. The car is finished in its original, timeless color combination, 464 Tobacco Brown Metallic over black leather interior. The car has been selectively addressed including a highly quality, glass out, re-paint. Recent services include: Engine out re-seal, new clutch kit including pressure plate and throw out bearing, new head studs, spark plugs and wires, Chain tensioner upgrade and pop off valve, motor mounts, drive belts, shifter bushings, blower motor, and main seal. Other highlights include: Outstanding exterior paint and interior, 16 inch Fuchs, excellent front and rear spoilers, excellent trim, newer tires, K2 Turbo upgrade, period correct stainless steel exhaust system etc. The car still features its original, numbers matching 3.3 liter turbo charged engine mated to its 4-speed manual transmission all harnessed by Porsche's Rack and Pinion Steering and 4 wheel ventilated disc brakes.

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. The example offered here, in its desirable color combination, recent service and overall quality demands global consideration. The car comes complete with original owners manual, took kit, spare and prominent service records.
