Description

**Regretfully Withdrawn**Only of only 53 last of the line Porsche 911 (930) Turbo LEs. Highly desirable G50 5-speed gearboxAn original, UK-supplied, right-hand drive example with only 30,800 miles from newFinished in Grand Prix White with a Linen leather interiorAccompanied by a quantity of maintenance and service invoices, Certificate of Authenticity, original tyre inflator and spare keyOnly available onthe UK market and now represents an exclusive ownership propositionFirst launched at the 1973 Paris Auto Show, with production commencing in 1975, the Porsche 911 930' Turbo was a genuine Supercar that came to define both the 1970's and 1980's and was one of the fastest production cars available at that time. The basic engine underpinnings came from the Carrera 2.7RS with its capacity increased to 3.0 Litres and, of course, turbocharged with technology gleaned from Porsche's 917/30 Can-Am programme. The bodywork came in for special treatment resulting in one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear "whale-tail" and the brakes were borrowed directly from the Porsche 917 race car. At the end of production in 1989, Porsche decided to mark the occasion by creating a very special Limited Edition 930 - the ultimate Turbo. A small number of the last assembly batch of standard 3.3-litre cars were taken off the line and sent to the 'Exclusive' team at Zuffenhausen to be finished by hand.With just 53 of these cars produced, one for each UK dealership in 1989, a host of bespoke options were offered including colour-coded wheels, top tinted windscreen, a choice of special colours for interior and exterior, rear quarter air intake ducts, electric sunroof, heated multi-adjust electric seats, and finally gold Turbo' lettering stitched behind the seats. Each car also featured a gold plaque on the centre console and a gold gear knob top as recognition of the LE's place in Porsche 911 history.This original right-hand drive, 930 Turbo Limited Edition (LE) was sold new on the 1st August 1989 by Rivervale, Berkshire. The factory options sticker under the bonnet shows it was supplied with the following option codes: heated seats (139), locking limited-slip diff (220), shorter gear shift lever (243), sunroof (650) and velour carpeting (975). There are a large number of bills and receipts in the history folderfrom various specialists such as RGL, JAZ and Porsche themselvesfor various jobs over the years and the mileage of 30,500 miles is corroborated by a number of MOT certificates dating back to 1993. The car looks fabulous in its original colour of Grand Prix White and the paintwork appears to have aged well. The Linen leather interior is also in beautiful condition, befitting a car that has covered just over 30,000 miles. Supplied with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, the original tyre inflator, and a spare key, we welcome any inspection. A full Porsche West London vehicle health check, carried out in May 2014, can be found in the history file and is available to any prospective purchasers.The car was purchased from Silverstone Auctions in mid-2017 and has remained in a private collection since with limited use.The 930 Turbo was in production for an incredible 14 years and was the epitome of supercar design in period. The last 53 Limited Edition vehicles are arguably the most collectable of the 21,589 cars built, as they were only available to the UK market and represent an exclusive and exhilarating ownership proposition.
