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, turbocharged with technology gained from Porsche’s 917/30 Can-Am program. The bodywork received special treatment resulting in one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear whale-tail and the brakes came directly from the Porsche 917 race car.
Offered here is a UK-supplied, right-hand drive 930 Turbo supplied by Charles Follett Ltd. to a Mr Peter Swift on the 6th February 1980. Today, the sparkling Grand Prix White paintwork with Black leather sports seats continue to present extremely well and this iconic 80s supercar has only covered 39,700 miles since that delivery date. The specification includes electric windows, electric mirrors, electric sunroof, air conditioning and, pleasingly, the original tool kit is present. This example is accompanied by a comprehensive service history including the original service book stamped by a number of Porsche Specialists over the years. After a period of little use, the 930 has benefited from a full recommissioning by a specialist to the sum of £2,500 with a detailed invoice on file. Also forming part of the sale are some trophies from past ‘Porsche In The Park’ Concours events in the early 2000s.
Our vendor, a gentleman and private collector purchased this Turbo from our Race Retro sale exactly four years ago, however, with a substantial collection it has only been used lightly covering less than 100miles in that period. With the market for 930 Turbos continuing to gain strength we are pleased to have the opportunity to once again offer this spectacular classic 911 for sale.
