Classic Car Overview

There are good arguments to be made that the Porsche 930 (AKA the 911 Turbo) was the first civilized supercar. As reliable as an anvil and the fastest car on the German Autobahns for almost a decade, it proved that high performance didnt have to be finicky. Well, as long as you were skillful enough to drive it to its potential, that is. This remarkable 1979 930 delivers every bit of the driving experience youd expect. Towering power, awesome brakes, and handling (once youve mastered it) all make it one of the most entertaining road cars ever devised. In 1979, the 930 was rated at 300 horsepower (for comparisons sake, a 1979 Corvette made 180 horsepower) thanks to an intercooler added in 1978. This Guards Red example is still tight and solid in typical Porsche fashion, but subtly modified to deliver astounding performance, even by todays standards. The car was repainted some years ago but still looks great and theres no evidence to suggest it was ever wrecked or damaged. With flared fenders, a Euro-style front bumper and headlights, and unique lower-body cladding, the Turbo is unmistakable coming or going, even without the towering whale tail spoiler. It has a lean, taut look that somehow most performance cars lacked, as if its steel skin were pulled taut over the muscles underneath. Inside you get deeply sculpted black leather buckets, a fat steering wheel, and exceptional preservation, as most of the equipment is original. As usual, Porsche puts the tach front and center, since thats really all you need to know when youre hustling at 10/10ths and the 5-speed gearbox, once youve familiarized yourself with it and the floor-mounted clutch, has a delightfully mechanical feel. A newer AM/FM/CD stereo has been stuffed into the dash, and is a big improvement over the stock Blaupunkt unit. Part of the 911s universal appeal is the upright windshield, which makes it feel airy and bright inside, plus those two occasional seats in back, which really are reserved for kids or a briefcase, not actual adults. Up front theres a usable and fully upholstered trunk area with a shock tower brace, but if youre a Porsche owner, you know to travel light. The 930s claim to fame was the astoundingly powerful 3.3 liter turbo flat-six in back. With a massive K27 turbo, boost comes on like a shotgun blast, which is why these cars have such a split personality. Master it, however, and youll be at the helm of one of the most potent road cars ever unleashed on the general public, and even today its performance will humble just about everything on the road that doesnt cost $100,000. This one has been freshly rebuilt, along with the turbo and intercooler (receipts included), so it runs beautifully, and thanks to massive disc brakes, itll bounce your forehead off the dashboard if things get out of hand. Other upgrades include a new fuel system, A/C updated to R134a refrigerant, a B&B header system, and a lot of other details to make it dependable and fast. With gorgeous Fuchs alloys and sticky 15-inch radials, it is ready to be a thrilling daily driver or a stunning track machine, or some combination of the two. Complete with service records, this is a 930 with no hidden secrets that you can buy with confidence. Experience a legend and call today!
