Power. A five-letter word that squarely sums up the 930 Turbo. At the correct rpm, and with the aid of its single turbo, this Porsche is spitting out approximately 256 horsepower. In a rear-wheel drive, rear engine car weighing in at just around 1,300 kilograms, that is quite a punch.
Launched by Porsche in late 1975 as the culmination of a decade-old experiment with turbocharging, the 930 Turbo became an overnight hit and an aspirational car for an entire generation. The early non-intercooled 3.0L cars eventually grew to a 3.3-litres, putting out nearly 300hp, and were mated to a G50 5-speed gearbox in the model’s final year. To this day, the wide stance and ‘whale tail’ of the 930 remain all-time classics of automotive design.
This particular car was delivered new to a customer in Maastricht, in the Netherlands. The car was sold in 2007 to a member of the Kuwaiti Royal Family, and later bought by us. As a highly original example, it is now pending a thorough mechanical recommissioning in our facilities.
