The Porsche 930, as the early 911 turbo is known, has become a legend and has the magical combination of beautiful lines, aggressive looks, a reputation for being dangerous for inexperienced drivers and a turbo. While nowadays there is almost no car with a fuel engine without a turbo, the Porsche 911 has made the 'power booster' what it is still known today.
And for good reason, Porsche launched the 911 Turbo in 1975, a car equipped with the 3.0 six-cylinder boxer with a large KKK turbocharger. With a compression of 6.5:1, the engine delivers 260 horsepower and a huge load of torque. The large turbo does little at the bottom of the revs and comes in hard in one go in the middle regions of the rev range. Exactly the area in which many owners were accelerating on a highway ramp or in a long curve at the time. The power source of the 911 is so aggressive that it earns the car the nickname 'Widow Maker'.
This beautiful and early copy was originally delivered on October 12, 1976, and, as witnessed by the Porsche birth certificate, was originally delivered in this very beautiful copper shade. Or, as Porsche calls it much better: Braunkupferdiamant (code 443). With some special options, such as the black sky that contrasts beautifully with the brown leather upholstery and dark brown carpets. Air conditioning is also available, an option that was still very exclusive at the time and very popular today.
The condition of the 930 Turbo that you see here can be described as 'exceptionally beautiful'. Not surprising with a mileage of 80,756. The outside of the 930 is to get through the proverbial ring. Very sleek and with perfect paintwork. The body has no damage and all parts are very tight. The black details such as rubbers, door handles and the finish of the early, still flat rear spoiler are also in healthy condition.
The brown-beige interior is also in excellent condition and matches the overall condition of the car. The seats have clearly suffered little and the same applies to the steering wheel, gear lever and other controls.
Then the original Matching Numbers 3.0 turbo, an engine that originated in the RSR and was supplied by Porsche with a huge KKK turbo. The Porsche 930 Turbo was pretty much the fastest production car on the market at the time, with acceleration from standstill to 100 km/h in just over 5 seconds. Mind you, we are talking about 47 years ago! A larger intercooler was fitted for better cooling.
The handling is also great, with a factory Turbo getting a lot of modifications compared to a normal 911. The suspension was revised and larger brakes were fitted. The gearbox is also stronger than a Carrera, in order to handle the enormous torque and power.
The technique of the Porsche is very healthy and it must therefore be a pleasure to make many kilometers with this car this summer. A few months ago, the Porsche had maintenance for € 10,000 to be completely 'on point' again for the coming season. The Porsche comes with the last invoices and a birth certificate.
A beautiful 930 Turbo, in the right version and with the right specifications. The fact that the Porsche is also Matching Numbers makes this Braunkupferdiamant-colored rocket on wheels even more desirable.
