3.3L 6-cylinder Turbo
1979 Porsche 930 Turbo
ORIGINAL RHD MATCHING NUMBERS
The 911 Turbo that started it all, the Porsche 930 series 911 Turbo. Porsche made its first and most significant changes to the 930 for 1978 model year, enlarging the engine bore by 2 mm (0.08 in) to a total displacement of 3,299 cc (3.3 L; 201.3 cu in) and adding an air-to-air intercooler. By cooling the pressurised air charge, the intercooler helped increase power output 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 intercooler and the spoiler was now infamously called the 'tea tray' spoiler by the enthusiasts. The suspension benefitted from new anti-roll bars, firmer shock absorbers 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 intercooler 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.
This 1979 930 Turbo is a very original example finished in Black exterior paint and a black interior with 4-speed manual transmission. 75,718miles with well documented history. Very good body and mechanical condition, this is a turn key classic you could drive regularly or add to a collection.
