FOR SALE; PORSCHE 911 (930) TURBO // 29K MILES // £40K RESTORATION BY FRANCIS TUTHILL

EQUIPMENT
UK C16, 4-Speed Manual, 16″ Fuchs Alloys, Limited Slip Differential, Disc Brakes, Black Callipers, Porsche Classic Radio-Nav System (Bluetooth, Navigation, SD Input), Black Leather, Black Carpets, Heated Leather Sport Seats with Electric Adjustment, Electric Windows, Sunroof, Heated Rear Window, Recoil Bumpers, Boost Gauge, Dash Clock

EXTERIOR
Finished in a stunning coat of Silver Metallic the presence of the 930 Turbo is undisputable, with its pronounced arches and Whale-Tail rear spoiler now staple symbols of the iconic Air-cooled generation.

This example is simply exceptional; purchased as a 25k mile original car this 930 was seen as an ideal candidate for an extensive restoration to meet the owners exacting standards. The car was subject to almost £40k worth of work with specialist Francis Tuthill, which included a bare metal windows out respray in the clients choice of Silver Metallic.

Having covered less than 4k miles since the work the paintwork presents with a radiant shine, free from any unsightly stone chips or imperfections, whilst the contrasting black trim all sits in excellent order after much of it was renewed or replaced.

INTERIOR
Subject to a full re-trim during the extensive restoration work the interior of the Turbo is a wonderful place to be. Black leather factory sports seats are a classic option that provide excellent support whilst functional electric adjustment and heating add an extra layer of comfort.

The familiar dash arrangement is a welcome sight, with the original airbag steering wheel and boost gauge carrying a certain 80s charm, as does the factory sunroof which is a welcome addition on those sunnier days. One important upgrade is the Porsche Classic Radio Nav unit which brings a touch of the 21st century to an otherwise retro space; with Bluetooth, navigation and SD input it provides excellent sound and usability whilst blending in to the surrounding space.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Upon ignition the familiar howl of the flat 6 barks into life and settles confidently to a deep idle. Upon test the car boosts nicely and works up the rev range in earnest, although that revered turbo delivery requires total focus and attention.

Both the engine and gearbox were full stripped and rebuilt in 2015 during the restoration and have been meticulously maintained since, with 4 more services and inspections to date.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The traditional Fuchs wheels are finished in a tonal black and complete the retro appeal of this 930 turbo. The painted centres and polished rims all in good order after being fully refurbished, as are the a premium set of Continental Conti sport contact N2’s which sit at each corner.

Brakes have also been fully refurbished, with the callipers rebuilt and serviced before being fitted with new pads and discs all around just over 1k miles ago.

HISTORY FILE
This 930 Turbo was first delivered on 01/08/1985 by Porsche Wilmslow who also performed the first service on the car later that year. The car was used sparingly for the next 13 years, with annual MOT’s showing a mileage of just 20,930 miles in 1998 before the car was SORN. The MOT/SORN history then shows a log of very little use, spending 12 years off the road and covering less than 4k miles by 2011, when the car started to be used more regularly by its next owners.

In 2015 the car was purchased with just over 25k miles on the clock before being taken to renowned Porsche specialist Francis Tuthill who was tasked with completely restoring the 930 Turbo. Photographs and pages of invoices outline the extensive work which included a windows out bare metal respray, full re-trim, gearbox overhaul and an engine out rebuild. In late 2015 the car was back on the road and was used sparingly, with further invoices confirming the mileage as well as 4 further services with a major service in 2017 at 27,230 miles and most recently a minor service in 2020 at 29,404 miles. In total over £48k has been spent on the car since 2015, ensuring it was properly restored to its former glory.

Present with the car is a vast history file with previous purchase invoices, comprehensive MOT/SORN history, £48k + log of service work, Porsche COA, replacement service book and 1 key.
