Lot #743 - This Porsche 930 Turbo endured at the hands of drivers respectful of its power and potential. This Turbo Carrera coupe comes with its original Window Sticker, purchase order, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and maintenance records logged over its well-kept lifespan. The air- and oil-cooled turbocharged 3.3-liter flat 6-cylinder engine was rated for 265hp at 5,500 rpm and 291 ft/lbs of torque at 4,000 rpm. The 4-speed manual transmission encourages runs up to the 7,000 rpm redline. A limited-slip differential helps equalize turbo power to both rear wheels for maximum traction. The engine and turbocharger were overhauled just 4,000 miles ago. Turbocharged power in a car that scaled in at just over 2,850 pounds delivered stout performance, which could surprise a driver unfamiliar with the rear-engine 911 dynamics. This icon of Porsche turbo performance is finished in the gorgeous color combination of Oak Green with a Cork interior centered by a pair of leather sport bucket seats. Factory air conditioning joins power windows and electric sunroof heated passenger mirror and an Alpine hi-fi stereo system for comfort, convenience and entertainment. The rear-mounted spoiler not only creates downforce for improved traction but also channels air over the intercooler. The 930 Turbo rides on Fuchs staggered-width 5-spoke alloy wheels equipped with a fresh set of tires. One of only 1,200 built for the U.S. market, this Porsche 930 Turbo was produced in May 1979 and also comes with a factory-issue tool roll.
