Porsches are known for their legendary build quality, tremendous performance, and exhilarating personality. The early 930s, the direct descendents of Porsche’s racing lineage, were cars for confident drivers – people who enjoyed the challenge of the vehicles’ sometimes-untamed tendencies, such as when the turbo kicked in around corners.

Built in November 1975, and purchased new for $27,000, this early 930’s original owner, Harold Holliman, was an aficionado of air-cooled Turbos; this car was one of nine in his collection. The current owner was a neighbor of Holliman’s, and he knew this Porsche well in advance of his 2006 purchase. The consignor and his son have enjoyed it on scenic drives up the California coast, and he reports he has enjoyed his ownership immensely.

A classic example of the first-generation US-market 911 Turbos, this notably original Southern California 1976 Porsche 930 has been exceptionally well maintained by its two owners. In 2015, an engine rebuild was performed using original and appropriate replacement parts.

Graced with the iconic whale tail rear spoiler, this 930 bears factory turbo graphics over original silver paint, complemented by a tidy black leather interior. Anyone seeking a dynamic, well-kept early 930 should give this example serious consideration.
