General information about the 5-speed turbo
The 930 Turbo presented by Porsche in 1975 was a revolution and immediately became an icon. The Turbo was the top model from Porsche and combined brute performance with very good equipment. It was immediately recognizable thanks to its significantly wider body, the wide rims and the distinctive turbo spoiler.
The 3.3 Turbo was built from 1977 to 1988 without major changes. It was not until the 1989 model year that the ultimate evolution of the Porsche 930 Turbo came onto the market – the '89 Turbo.
The 1989 model year was the last model year of the so-called "G model" of the Porsche 911. In the same year, the successor 964 came onto the market.
For this last model year, Porsche equipped the 930 Turbo with the modern and reinforced 5-speed G50 transmission and also equipped the car with a hydraulic clutch. These changes significantly improved the handling of the 930 Turbo. The now narrower gearing leads to smaller speed jumps, so that the turbocharger can build up pressure more quickly. The hydraulic clutch can be operated with significantly less force and also with more precision, which enables more comfort and better starts.
The driving performance was also improved by the new transmission.
The chassis tuning has also been thoroughly improved with larger torsion bars on the rear axle, modified stabilizers and harder tuned shock absorbers for the 89er.
As a Targa, the so-called '89 turbo is particularly rare and exclusive, as only 92 vehicles were built.
The new price of a 930 Turbo targas in Germany in 1989 was DM 140,500 and thus DM 7,500 more than a 930 Turbo Coupé. In comparison, a Golf 2 GTI was around DM 26,000.
Of these 92 vehicles, 40 were intended for the North American market and had a slightly derated engine. The remaining 52 vehicles for the rest of the world had the 300 hp (220 kw) engine. 26 vehicles are left-hand drive and 26 vehicles are right-hand drive.
The example we are offering is one of these right-hand drive vehicles, only 26 of which were built, and was delivered new to Great Britain with country code C16. The car has, among other things, a seat heater for the driver's seat, a 40% limited slip differential and Raffleder as special equipment ex works.
The color combination is plain black (A1A1) combined with black leather.
The original checkbook with 12 entries is available and documents the maintenance history and the low mileage.
We are aware of 2 previous owners in the UK before the current German owner bought it in 2008 with around 47,500 miles and imported it to Germany. The car has a German H registration.
The car is in original condition with a very nice original interior.
However, as the car has been part of a collection in recent years and has not been driven very much, we recommend a fresh service and some detail work on the cosmetics. The last oil change was in June 2021.
The car can be viewed by appointment. A lifting platform is of course also available for this purpose.
