For Porsche to race in FIA Group 4 competition, their racecar had to be homologated as a production model and thus the 911 Turbo was born for 1975, known internally as the 930 Turbo. The first 400 units qualified Porsche to go racing with these cars. The original Turbo, known as the Turbo Carrera, were initially fitted with a 3.0 Liter flat six-cylinder turbo engine producing 260bhp. For 1978, Porsche revised the 930 with a larger 3.3 Liter turbo engine rated at 300bhp. Porsche also revised the large rear spoiler as well officially naming the car 911 Turbo worldwide. With U.S. emissions restrictions tightening in 1980, 1979 became the last model year that the 930 was specified for the American market until 1986.
