This rare early 911 3.0 Turbo example was elaborately restored in-house by the RSC Automobile workshop with great attention to detail. The car is rebuilt to perfect condition with a lot of new parts; exactly like it was back in the day.
The nimble and powerful 911 Turbo in its earliest form is much sought after by enthusiasts, who consider it to be the purest and most enjoyable of this long-lived series.
This is a unique opportunity to own a beautiful Turbo in perfect condition that marked the beginning of the Turbo era! Expected end of 2018, this car is finished in elegant Silver Metallic over black leatherette / tissue. It comes with a Porsche-issued Certificate of Authenticity and is completely matching.
Combining the unmistakable looks of a classic Porsche, the powerful Turbo motor, and the collectability that goes hand in hand with its low production figures, this extraordinary 1977 930 3.0 Turbo Coupe will not disappoint!
Some of the work carried out during the restoration:
911 3.0 TURBO
Internally dubbed the Type 930, the Turbo, featured a three-litre air-cooled six-cylinder engine boosted by a KKK turbocharger. With maximum pressure of .8 Bar the engine developed an impressive 260 hp at 5,500 rpm. With that much twist available, Porsche determined that the stronger four-speed transaxle with widely spaced ratios would suit in place of the five-speed gearbox used across the rest of the 911 range.
Nobody would ever mistake the muscular new bodywork of the Turbo for any ordinary 911; its front fenders and rear quarter-panels were drastically flared to accommodate new 15-inch-diameter Fuchs forged aluminum road wheels, seven inches wide in front and eight inches in the rear.
The rear ‘whale-tail’ spoiler not only added down-force, but its separate intake grille also supplied cooling air to the engine compartment. A deep chin spoiler was added below the nose to balance the handling.
Porsche had taken the challenge of building an incredible performance car in an era when the powers that be fought against it, and the result was not only the fastest production car that they had ever offered, but also the fastest production car on the planet.
