Description for Porsche 930 1977

9307800599 is the 588th Turbo Carrera out of 717 total produced for the US market in the 1977 model year. This car was originally a green/grey metallic paint to sample and remained so until shortly after its original owner traded it in on a brand new 1986 Porsche 928. The car was purchased by its second owner from Hilton Head Motorcars in 1986 (original sales receipt included). After being transported to its new home in Miami Beach, lorida this Green/Grey beauty was immediately refinished in its current Guards Red - a proclivity of the period. The second owner, successful commercial real-estate developer, njoyed the car thoroughly throughout the 90's entrusting it to Champion Porsche for regular service. The owner declined countless opportunities to upgrade to newer exotic throughout the years, othing seemed to beat his 930.
Proof of his adoration for the car came in 2001 when his tired turbo was due for a major refresh. He entrusted Turbo Werks of Ft Lauderdale, L to rebuild the original engine, uspension, xles, rakes, nd other major drive-line components to ensure that his 930 would drive like new once again. At the recommendation of Turbo Werks, factory 3.3 intercooler was fitted for lowered intake temperatures in the hot Florida climate as well as factory 3.3 exhaust for better performance. A whale-tail spoiler was fitted to the car at the time to ensure clearance of the intercooler. The car received several other aesthetic upgrades at the time including OE boxed rockers, RUF style front valance with functional underbody diffuser, nd a custom set of 16x10 Fuchs by Ernies Alloys. Comprehensively the owner spent over $17,000(all documented) in 2001/2 to update his pride and joy both mechanically and aesthetically. Unfortunately, s we all know, hese upgrades are no longer as desirable given the current market. That being said, his is a rare opportunity to own a numbers matching, xcellent running & driving 3.0 liter turbo for under $100k.
Mechanically the car fires right up, arms to temperature, nd drives with fantastic enthusiasm. The lightweight clutch disk allows for effortless engagement and crisp gear changes. The 3 liter engine makes impressive power throughout the rev range with zero hesitancy. Driving this car is a real treat, he power and throttle response favor a later 3.3 liter - a true testament to the work performed over a decade and a half ago. Its underside does not show any oil leaks and the car does not smoke whatsoever. A truly southern car, here is zero rust or corrosion anywhere on the vehicle. The car has received regular scheduled maintenance over the years but has not required anything major in the 20k miles it has acquired since the refresh.The car still retains its original engine and transmission as proven by the included COA.
We all know what the early turbos are fetching, specially in odd, riginal colors. This particular vehicle can be driven and enjoyed while it continues to appreciate in value, r could have some parts returned back to original and refinished to gain an instant boost in value. It is an open canvas and a value to the collector or restorer that can see true potential past minor aesthetics. The car is located in Mooresville, C and I welcome anyone with the means to come see and drive the car in person. If you are not able to do so there are several competent Porsche shops in my area that could complete a comprehensive pre-purchase inspection. I am willing to drive the car to the shop of your choice. International buyers welcome, can assist in transporting the car to either Charleston or Savannah for export. We are asking $99,930USD for this vehicle, t will be a dealer sale. Please call me, atrick, t 706.973.0169 with any questions - I am willing to explain the car in painful detail and can provide additional photos of any inch of the car you would like to see.
