1979 Porsche 930 Turbo presented in correct Black (Code A1) over Black Leather (Code 68) Interior. Only 70,926 original miles since new. Factory optioned with Limited Slip Differential, Electric Exterior Mirror, Sport Seats, Black Roofliner and Electric Sunroof. Certificate of Authenticity, Numbers matching engine and transmission. All original, unmolested, and non-restored condition, absolutely rust free example.The 930 was unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 1973 as the Carrera Turbo. Employing the now iconic wide body and curvaceous body lines of the Carrera RS 3.0 but with distinctive new front and rear spoiler design. The Carerra Turbo became an instant sensation. The car was released in the North American Market in 1976 as the 911 Turbo and featured a 3.0L Turbocharged engine. In 1978 Porsche upgraded the engine to a 3.3L Intercooled version producing 300HP and 304 lb-ft, endowing the Turbo to reach a top speed of 165mph. The fastest US car at the time. Also introduced on the 3.3L Turbos was a new rear wing to clear the intercooler and a 4-piston braking system from the 917 racecar. The 3.3L Turbo was built for the US market for only the 1978 and 1979 model year before US emissions standards forced it from the market until its reintroduction in 1986. Significant air cooled Porsche's have seen a tremendous appreciation in value in recent years, due in part to their analog driving experience and genuine blue chip collectability. Early Turbo models in original condition are virtually non-existent, and will continue to lead the marque in value into the next decade.This particular example, #729/1,200 built, had the same owner for 15 years. It was sold by us in 2001, after we took it on trade from a gentleman in Oregon. The car was sold new in Texas. A previous owner had the DP style front bumper and 17 Porsche Cup Wheels installed. The car has had a fastidious ownership, always serviced at Porsche dealerships (If they had a technician familiar enough and skilled enough to understand the car) or independent specialty Porsche shops. It has always been garage kept, and never driven in poor weather conditions. The vehicle is presented in its original Black (A1) paint, which shows exceptionally well. Other than some slight rock chipping as one would expect from the miles, the exterior is virtually blemish free. The Black leather interior presents in great shape with no rips, tears, or bolster wear. Headliner is in fantastic shape, as are the carpets. This vehicle was also ordered with the rare limited slip differential and factory sport seats. Certificate of Authenticity (COA) is available. The vehicle recently completed a rigorous pre-sale inspection with compression check at Hennessey Porsche. The compression is as follows: cylinder: 1=110, 1=110, 3=115, 4=110, 5=115, 6=110. They noted that the vehicle checked out remarkably well and showed no signs of rust. They were able to also verify that the engine and transmission numbers match the COA.For more information on this sensational 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo, or any of our other 40+ Porsches always in stock, contact our friendly and knowledgeable sales team, or always feel free to stop by our Bellevue, WA Park Place Ltd campus - Where we have over 40,000 sq ft of indoor showrooms filled with the finest cars.
