Porsche badged the vehicle simply as “Turbo” (although early U.S. units were badged as “Turbo Carrera”) and introduced the vehicle at the Paris Auto Show in October 1974 before putting it on sale in the spring of 1975; export to the United States began in 1976.
The Turbo (internally 930) proved very fast but also very demanding to drive, and due to its short wheelbase and rear engine layout, was prone to oversteer and turbo-lag. It acquired the nickname “the Widowmaker” after several crashes and deaths attributed to its handling characteristics, which were unfamiliar to many drivers. Under certain conditions, applying too much throttle would cause the heavy rear end of the car to swing outward like a pendulum, causing the car to spin out. To this day, Porsche corporate employees who drive 911 Turbo models for testing or for business reasons are mandated to undergo “Turbo Training”, despite the fact that newer 911 Turbo models are generally safer and easier to drive.
Our car on offer is a European spec. Turbo 3.0 that was first delivered to France. It is finished in Sienna Metallic (436) over a very rare and eye popping green leather and carpeting. We have never seen this color combination before.
The car eventually made its way to Germany and resides now with its third owner since 2014.The engine and transmission have been rebuild in Germany and have very few miles on it.
The car is otherwise very original and mainly un-restored.
Fully numbers matching!
A rare opportunity for one of the early, 3.0l Turbos in Euro configuration and in a very unique color combination! These cars are very sought after for their raw and uncivilized behavior under boost.
