First registered in July 1982, this original left-hand drive German-market 911 Turbo spent its early years in its home country, before being exported to America, and was later shipped back to Germany by its current owner, who acquired the car around six years ago. During the current keeper’s ownership, the car has maintained to a high standard at a total cost of around €37,000, and it is now offered for sale by the trade on their behalf.
Today, this 930-generation 911 Turbo’s iconic bodywork is in great shape, and its glossy black finish is described by the vendor as being in good condition, having been fully resprayed in the past. As well as some general light swirl marks across its surface, the paintwork also features a few small marks and blemishes, including stone chips on the bonnet and the sills, ahead of the rear wheel arches.
The matt black ‘shark fin’ wing guards remain in place, and are in very good order, while the light lenses and rear reflector panel present well, with no cracks or chips. The car’s wheel arches are filled by its original 16-inch Fuchs alloy wheels, which are finished with black centres and polished rims. All four present well; however their black paintwork is flaking slightly.
Continuing the exterior colour theme into the cabin, this 911 Turbo’s seats are upholstered in black leather with perforated centre sections, and are in excellent condition for their age, with minor wear to the piping on the driver’s outer bolster and light creasing to their surfaces. The door cards feature diagonally-stitched black leather inserts, which are in good order, and the original steering wheel has been replaced with a Club Sport item, which presents very well and shows few signs of wear.
The car’s black carpets are protected by a set of black over mats with red piping and matching red ‘Turbo’ script. Overhead, the black perforated headlining is in good shape, but is discoloured and marked in some places, while the electrically operated sliding sunroof helps to bring fresh air into the cabin during warm-weather drives.
A period-correct Blaupunkt radio/cassette player provides additional entertainment. All of the car’s interior buttons, switches and electrical items are reported to work without fault, and there are no warning lights displayed on the dashboard.
Maintained to a high standard, this classic Turbo is in fine mechanical order. Most recently, Porsche specialist CarTech Knowledge GmbH partially overhauled the engine in January 2019 at 56,408km, with the bill totalling around €11,000. Prior to this, 33-point inspections were carried out in both December 2015 and December 2014. As a testament to its previous owners’ appreciation for originality, this handsome Porsche remains almost entirely standard, save for its replacement exhaust system. A full summary of the service history is shown in the photo gallery.
The car’s last TÜV inspection was conducted in September 2020, with no faults being found. All four of its Fuchs wheels are fitted with Pirelli P Zero Asimmetrico tyres, which the vendor states are in good condition, and date to 2015.
The car will be accompanied by a range of documents and paperwork, including a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity listing its factory options.
This Porsche 911 (930) Turbo is a highly desirable 1980s poster car, which combines stunning looks with performance that remains impressive today. Maintained to a high standard, with significant recent work, this low-mileage example would benefit from some minor cosmetic rejuvenation to bring the paintwork up to a superb standard. However, it is a highly original car that is ready to enjoy as-is, and represents the opportunity to acquire one of Porsche’s most famous classic models.
