EQUIPMENT
C16 UK Delivered from new, Dash clock, Boost gauge, Electric mirrors, Electric sunroof, Original Blue spot Porsche CR Stereo, AC, Heated rear window, rear wiper

EXTERIOR
Immediately recognised as the Turbo by its flared rear arches and Whale-Tail rear spoiler this example is finished in a gleaming shade of Grand Prix White. Having been in the careful hands of its first owner until 2015 it presents in its factory coat of paint and in superb original condition throughout. There are only a few stone chips to note that have been touched in, incredible considering it’s over 40 years old. Plastics and trim maintain an almost new fit, feel and integrity, with no fading or wear, whilst glass, lenses and lights remain chip and mark free.

INTERIOR
The black leather and Tartan insert factory ordered seats are a classic and desirable option that defines ’70s Porsches. These present as new with minimal wear or age and provide good support with deep side bolsters.

The familiar dash arrangement is a welcome sight when climbing into the cabin and presents particularly clear, with surrounding switch gear and dials in full operational order. The car is equipped with an electric sunroof, for the complete classic car motoring experience on sunny days, the original Porsche stereo cassette player still fitted to re-live that old music collection.

Opening the bonnet and the front tub is as new, The thin carpet lining clean and covering an original, never used space saver wheel and tool roll.

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.

The 930/60 here has been subject to a great deal of love and attention over the years, with further significant investment by the second owner wishing to refresh and preserve this iconic and original 911, as such the engine bay presents impeccably.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The traditional Fuchs wheels offset the white coachwork superbly in black, with paint and polished rim in perfect order. Wheels are wrapped in excellent Michelin rubber with plenty of depth whilst brakes work well with plenty of pad and material left on both pad and disc.
