Notable maintenance includes the addition of 1-bar boost springs by Porsche specialists Autofarm while the car underwent an engine rebuild, as well as having a performance exhaust and new brake discs added, at Addspeed in 2002. Original books, including all service stamps from new and MOT’s from the late 1990s, are retained, as well as original toolkit.
Sports Purpose project managed a complete bare-metal overhaul and refresh by Heritage AutoWerks at a cost of almost £30,000 and the car presents strongly.
This 930 from 1989 marks the culmination in development of these cars.
Although only produced across one model year, the introduction of the 5-speed G50 transmission made the Turbo even more usable and is understandably an in-demand model.
With little use over the last 16 years and no evidence of damage or repairs, it represents an original, unmolested car from the end of Porsche’s first Turbo era. The car presents superbly, an exercise in discreet high performance.
We are often asked what Porsche to use every day; this charismatic 80s supercar would be very near to the top of that list.
