Better known to the public as the 911 Turbo, Porsche originally produced the internally designated 930 to comply with homologation regulations intended for FIA’s requirements to race the new 911 Turbo Carrera RSR in 1974. In order to meet homologation requirements to qualify in the FIA’s Group 4 category, Porsche was required to build 400 road-going versions. The 930 was launched at the Paris Motor Show in 1974. At its point of inception, the car would be the German automaker’s fastest production model, and it quickly became one of the most iconic of the 911 series production cars. Throughout its run, the 930 underwent several modifications. In 1978, it received an improved 3.3-liter intercooled engine, better brakes, and other refinements that remained through 1989. Despite its popularity, the 930 was pulled from the US market in 1980 as a result of changes in emissions regulations before being reintroduced in 1986.
This Porsche 930 is a well-preserved, two-owner US-specification example with less than 7,200 miles recorded at the time of cataloguing. Finished in a striking black over black color scheme, it appears to be in original, unrestored condition throughout. Accompanied by its tool kit, owner’s manual, and a CARFAX Vehicle History Report, this 930 represents a rare opportunity to acquire a minimally used example of one of the most legendary German sports cars of all time.
