In 1975 Porsche achieved a new level of excellence with the 930 Turbo Coupe, which blasted from 0-60 in a hair-raising 4.9 seconds and reached 156 mph. The first-generation 930 introduced wide-flared fenders and the “whale-tail” spoiler – fair warning of the performance it delivered.
Imported and federalized by its original owner, a doctor living in Virginia, this second-generation 930 is one of 820 European models built in 1979. Finished in Guards Red with black leather interior, rare Turbo billboard graphics, and a factory sunroof, chassis 9309700373 indicates less than 26,000 miles and presents as an extraordinary survivor, having been off the road for the 15 years prior to 2015. The 930 was kept in climate-controlled storage for most of its existence, and the benefits are clearly evident. In 2015, the long-dormant 930’s paint and underside were expertly cleaned and detailed, revealing the full extent of its outstanding condition.
In addition to the cosmetic work the Porsche received, an engine-out reseal was performed, which included new head studs. This Turbo is accompanied by its Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, the owner’s manual, tool kit, spare, and jack. This remarkable 930 represents a unique chance to turn the clock back and relive the remarkable thrill it first provided.
