Ferdinand Porsche once said "I couldnt find the sports car of my dreams so I decided to build it"

This 78 930 Turbo stands tall and is an Absolute testament to its enthusiast ownership!

Porsche made its first and most significant changes to the 930 for 1978 model year, enlarging the engine bore by 2 mm to a total displacement of 3,299 cc (3.3 L) and adding an air-to-air inter-cooler. By cooling the pressurized air charge, the inter-cooler helped increase power to 300 PS (221 kW; 296 hp) at 5,500 rpm and 412 N m (304 lb ft) of torque at 4,000 rpm (DIN); the rear whale tail spoiler was re-profiled and raised slightly to make room for the inter-cooler and the spoiler was now called the tea tray spoiler. The suspension benefited from new anti-roll bars, use of a firmer shock absorber and larger diameter rear torsion bars. Porsche also upgraded the brakes to units similar to those used on the 917 race car. While the increase in displacement and addition of an inter-cooler increased power output and torque, these changes also increased the weight of the vehicle, especially the engine, which contributed to a substantial change in the handling and character of the car compared to the earlier 3.0-litre models.

Take advantage of an ownership and driving opportunity that only a select few had the pleasure to experience while investing in a piece of Porsche history that will only continue to appreciate in value as the prices of these rare vehicles continues to climb to an all time high.
