1978 Porsche 930 (911 Turbo)
This is a rare and highly desirable US-spec Porsche 930 (911 Turbo). 1978 was the first year for the 3.3 liter engine with intercooler, bigger 917 style brakes and the classic Turbo rear spoiler on the 930's. There were only 461 of these cars produced for the US market in 1978!! It has only had three owners, all of them in Texas. This 930 is finished in its original classic color combination of Silver Metallic over black leather. We have just finished restoring this very straight (rare for a Turbo) and 100% rust-free car. The engine has been completely rebuilt including new OEM pistons, cylinders, bearings, cams, rockers, seals, timing chains, etc., etc. The transmission was rebuilt with all new synchros and a new clutch just installed. The Turbo was replaced with a K27 unit. The car is stock with the exception of a Quad Borla muffler which sounds great. There are close to $20,000 in receipts to rebuild just the the engine and transmission. The paint still has great gloss but has a few chips and scratches in the usual places. It's not perfect but the car is still stunning. The interior is almost perfect except for some slight warping of the dash by the defroster vents. Keep in mind that you must be careful when buying 930's. Most of these early Turbos are pushing 30 years old and need attention. We have spent a lot of time and money on this car so you will know EXACTLY what you are getting when you buy it. Please call us for details on this very collectible and rapidly appreciating car.
