Description

Delivered throughParks of Exeter in April 1987 in Guards Red with black leatherPost-1983 930/66 engine with Motronic management. 300bhp, 0-60 in 5.2 secs and 161mphOptionsinclude Sportseats with electric height adjustment, sunroof and rear seat belts15 years storage before being recommissioned this year by Classic Car WorkshopReconditioned Turbo and Cylinder HeadsAccompanied by theoriginal book pack, service book andinvoice for recent workDuring 1977/78, Porsche increased the capacity of their 930 Turbo from 3.0 to 3.3-litres and an air-to-air intercooler was positioned under the rear spoiler. The spoiler was re-profiled and raised slightly to make room for the intercooler assembly, and this meant saying goodbye to the whale-tail' and welcoming the equally distinctive tea-tray'. By cooling the pressurised air charge, power was increased from 260bhp to 300bhp, bringing the 0-60 mph time down to 5.0 seconds, and the larger engine also helped reduce the turbo-lag inherent in the earlier version. Porsche also upgraded the brakes to units similar to those used on their 917 race-car but was able to keep the original strengthened gearbox, which had the benefit of freeing up space inside the casing for larger and stronger gear clusters, with an impressive torque capacity of 475lbs ft.This 930 Turbo is a 'C16', UK-supplied, right-hand drive, classically finished in Guards Red with black leather and is showing 51,480 miles. Options when new include Sport seats with electric height adjustment, sunroof and rear belts. In more recent times, this Turbo has enjoyed a mechanical overhaul following 15 years of dry storage. Classic Car Workshop carried out the refreshand there is an invoice in the history file detailing the work, which includes new tyres, reconditioned turbo and cylinder heads.Accompanied by itsoriginal book pack, service book with numerousinvoices and guided very sensibly considering the mileage and condition, this sparkling 930 Turbo is ready to return to the road and do what 300bhp Porsche Turbos do best!You can now book a one-to-one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location of Stoneleigh Park (CV8 2LG) Monday to Friday, between Thursday 29th October 12th November.
