1987 Porsche 930 Turbo Slantnose Targa

> Year: 1987 Make: Porsche Model: 930 Turbo Slantnose Targa VIN: WP0EB093XHS060087 Engine: 3.3L 6-cylinder turbo Odometer: 20,127 miles Color: Black/Linen Description:

Porsche began experimenting with turbocharging technology on their race cars during the late 1960s, nd in 1972 began development on a turbocharged version of the 911. Porsche originally needed to produce the car in order to comply with homologation regulations and had intended on marketing it as a street legal race vehicle like the 1973 Carrera 2.7 RS.

Ferdinand "Ferry" Porsche, ho was running the company at the time, anded development of the vehicle over to Ernst Fuhrmann, ho adapted the turbo-technology originally developed for the917/30CAN-AM car to the 3.0 litre flat-six from the Carrera RS 3.0, reating what Porsche internally dubbed as 930.

Porsche badged the vehicle simply as "Turbo" (although early U.S. units were badged as "Turbo Carrera") and debuted it at theParis Auto Showin October 1974 before putting it on sale in the spring of 1975; export to theUnited Statesbegan in 1976.

The 930 proved very fast but also very demanding, rone by its shortwheelbaseandrear engine layouttooversteerand plagued by significant turbo-lag.

Porsche offered a "Flachbau" ("slantnose") 930 under the "Sonderwunschprogramm" (special order program) beginning in 1981, n otherwise normal 930 with a935-style slantnose instead of the normal 911 front end. Each Flachbau unit was handcrafted by remodeling the front fenders. So few were built that the slantnose units often commanded a high premium over sticker, dding to the fact that they required a premium of up to 60 per cent (highly individualized cars even more) over the standard price. Several sources claim the factory built 948 units. The Flachbau units delivered in Europe usually featured the 330hp (246kW) performance kit.

It was in 1984 that Porsche produced the fastest of the 930 Turbos with exhilarating pace 0-60 in 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 278 km/h. These are the cars in greatest demand.

Porsche re-introduced the 930 to the Japanese and U.S. markets in 1986 with an emission-controlled engine producing 282PS (207kW; 278hp). At the same time Porsche introduced Targa and Cabriolet 930s, oth of which proved popular.

Porsche discontinued the 930 after model year 1989 when its underlying "G-Series" platform was being replaced by the964. '89 models were the first and last versions of the 930 to feature the G50 transmission, 5-speed manual transmission. A turbo version of the 964 officially succeeded the 930 in 1991 with a modified version of the same 3.3 litreflat-6engine and a 5-speed transmission.

This is a stunning example of a 505 factory Slantnose Targa - $23,826 option. Very rare find with mostly original paint and original interior. Always a California car, n beautiful condition and is ready to enjoy with very low miles. Exceptional color combination in classic black.

According to an internal Porsche Cars of America document only 9Slantnose Targas were built in 1987 out of 31 total from 1987 to 1989!internina
