This 930 Turbo’s Significance: Upon introduction in the early 70s, It was Germany’s fastest high-production car. The infamous “Widowmaker” term was first appointed to the 930, due to its setup; rear-engine, rear-drive, a wheelbase that isn’t the longest, combined with little to no safety nannies and turbo lag made for a challenging drive when the car’s dynamics wasn’t given complete attention by its driver. Not only was it the first 911 to feature the brand’s signature wide rear fenders and “Whale Tail” spoiler, but it was also the marque’s first time adding forced-induction to a production-based vehicle. The 930 is the last 911 Turbo that bears the original classic styling that the preliminary 911 have and truly a vastly important model not only in the marque’s storied and rich history but also to the automotive world as well. It’s the poster child Porsche.
Performance: Powering the 930 is a rear-mounted and single-turbocharged (Triple K K26 Turbo), 3.3L flat-six air-cooled engine — that when new, delivered a potent 282-hp and 278 ft-lbs of torque. Operation is handled by the G50 manual transmission and the power is sent to the rear wheels.
