In the late 1970s, Porsche launched its remarkable turbocharged 930. The 930 delivered astonishing performance with unprecedented reliability, particularly as compared to higher-priced competition. Production of the 930 concluded on July 31, 1989, and, according to the research of a previous owner as noted in an e-mail on file, this example rolled off the assembly line that day, number 599 of 600 built.

This Guards Red Turbo Cabriolet was delivered with a full leather Champagne interior and a black power top. Options included a sport steering wheel with elevated hub, Monterey radio, locking differential, and shorter gearshift lever. The Porsche’s original owner cherished this superlative example before selling it to the current owner in 2007, and the 930 retains stunning paint and gorgeous interior, while displaying just under 3,500 miles at the time of cataloguing. The consignor, an ardent Porsche collector, has made ongoing preservation a top priority. In 2017, the car received a new ignition control unit, fuel accumulator, battery, and fresh oil. Accompanying the sale are a jack, tool kit, manual, CARFAX Vehicle History Report, and service records.

This celebrated icon of performance history is an exceptional two-owner example that has been cared for by knowledgeable enthusiasts. Porsche engineering, design excellence, and exemplary preservation beautifully converge in this rare and stunning 930 Cabriolet.
