As Porsche Turbos were being banned from the United States, orsche was pushing as many 930s on the boat in 1979 all the way until the last day of the year. The U.S. dealers were scrambling to get their hands on as many as possible as the demand was huge. The domestic market feared that the 930 would never come back. Six years later, 30s were once again arriving here but they were much different cars. The smog law restrictions choked the life out of them and they seemed to be more of a GT car than a direct descendent of the 935.

This example didn’t quite make the boat and turned out to be one of the very few Turbos produced in 1980 (lowest production year in the model history outside of the 1975 model). The total run for the world was only 840 units. It was ordered with the following options:

Air conditioning

Rear wiper

Power windows

Blaupunkt radio with rear speakers

It was originally sold as a German delivered Porsche where it only lived for 4-years before being imported to the U.S. We have all the documents from new including service receipts and proper EPA/DOT documents. A physician in Ohio imported the car and took delivery on April 17th, 984 with 1,070 miles. He then sold it to a neighbor on April 10th, 987 with 10,000 miles. This owner used it as a daily driver for a little over 3-years before selling it on November 29th, 990 to another mutual friend with 32,000 miles.

This owner kept the car the longest. He had it until May 27th, 011 when he sold it with 52,000 miles. During this owner’s care, e had a full engine rebuild performed at 40,000 miles (in the early 1990’s). The receipts show a full drivetrain restoration.

The next owner lived in Arizona and only kept the car for a few years and barely drove it. He sold it on August 8th, 014 with 53,500 miles.

Because the car sat for many years after the rebuild with very little use, ome oil leaks began to show up. The current owner is a perfectionist and wanted this Turbo to be mechanically sound and drive properly. He hired a local, ell-respected Porsche specialist to go through the entire motor again. He invested over $26,000 in the following repairs/services:

Remove engine and transmission

Fresh top-end rebuild

New clutch kit/refinish flywheel

New rings

New head studs (APR)

Reconditioned the cylinder heads, ocker arms, nd camshafts

Refinished the original Fuch wheels

New tires

Furthermore, his 930 came to this owner with a Kolken turbo, &B Tri-Flo exhaust, hort shift kit, ire-Tek induction system, eltmeister strut brace, uro RS front and rear bumpers, nd a front bumper mounted RSR-style oil cooler. Dyno results show nearly 300hp at the rear wheels. Also, his 930 doesn’t leak a drop of oil.

Not only do we have all the importation documentation, e have all the records verifying ownership history and mileage. Furthermore, his owner has acquired the correct original bumpers and exhaust to go back to a complete stock look. They are included with the car.

The exterior of this 930 is excellent. The paint looks very good for its age with minimal signs of wear. It was repainted sometime ago due to the typical clear coat issues Porsche had with their early metallic paints. It was obviously a quality glass out job as there is no overspray on the rubber. We believe they used the original Glasurit code paint as well. The original anodized window trim looks great and it is refreshing to see no one has painted them black. All the glass is original except for a newer windscreen. The original factory Fuchs have recently been restored and wear new tires.

The interior is equally nice and appears to be all-original. The leather seats are in nice shape with just some minor wear on the driver exit bolsters. The factory green carpet is well preserved and not stained or torn. The door panels and pockets look great with some minor warping of the door pocket flaps. The original leather dash has no cracks, ut is showing some minor shrinkage up against the windscreen. The headliner is all original as well and showing just some minor wear near the corners around c-pillars…very minor. All the gauges work properly including the clock and Blaupunkt radio. The switches to the mirrors work fine. The A/C was just dye tested and recharged. It blows cold.

All in all, his is an excellent example of a very rare color combination Porsche 930.

Hands down, his generation 930s (early intercooled models) is my favorite. They are the pure driver’s turbo. They embody the myth of these cars. They are raw, ast, nd fun. Yet, hey can still be docile enough to sit in traffic (love the tall 1st gear on these cars). It is clear this turbo has been built and tuned properly. It’s got enormous power on tap and at first surprises you a bit. But, t’s not so violent that you get nauseous on the way to work. The steering feels so light and incredible responsive. These early intercooled turbos are very nimble. Of course, he brakes are the best in the world. They have insane retina detaching power that are only limited by the traction of the tires. This 930 would have been (in my eyes) the perfect car to do a road trip in for Rennsport Reunion in Monterey. Of course, arga Baja California is around the corner and I think this would be a blast on that vintage tour.

Oregon registration is current and good to March 2017. It also recently passed the Oregon emissions/smog test. It was registered and smog checked in California up until 2 months ago. We recently ran it through CA smog and it passed with flying colors, ut they wouldn’t issue a certificate because we need the BAR sticker which was removed when the car was painted. We have an appointment to get a new sticker shortly.

This 930 comes with its original jack, pace saver spare, ool kit, wners manual, tock bumpers, tock exhaust, nd extensive receipts/history.
