A racing engineer’s car, developed from a racing car that filled trophy cabinets and one of the most raw and unbridled road cars Porsche owners could sink their teeth into, the 911 Type 930 Turbo was and will continue to be an out and out supercar legend.

Designed by Ernst Fuhrmann to be Porsche’s halo car, the 930 Turbo was produced from 1975 through to 1989 and constantly evolved over its 14-year production run, with the final incarnation of its kind released in 1985.

The pinnacle of Type 930 evolution featured all the trimmings including the iconic whale tail, flared wheel arches housing wider Fuchs wheels, a sunroof as standard, and a turbo boost gauge incorporated into the tachometer.

All of this atop its already industry-leading 4-wheel independent suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes, leather upholstery, air conditioning, electric windows, Bosch fuel injection, and a whirring, churning air-cooled flat-six engine pumping out a whopping 300hp earned it Paul Frere’s seal of approval as the best sports car of its day.

Surviving the ravages of time, available here is an incredibly rare and unfettered find. Australian delivered, numbers matching and travelled a documented 148,997 kilometres, this special order Palisander Metallic over Cashmere Beige Porsche 930 Turbo was sold new by Scuderia Veloce Porsche, Sydney, in June of 1982 with a full complement of factory options including air conditioning, driving lights, power windows, central locking, rear wiper, and sunroof.

Released from a private collection, this tantalisingly original car feels so fresh from the tight door handle toggle action to the direct steering feel and sharp throttle response, all tell-tale signs point to an exceptionally well-maintained car with an engine rebuilt done in 2018 by Autohaus Hamilton at 137,993 kilometres.

Accompanying this 911 is all of its original logbooks kept within the correct vinyl Porsche wallet and filled with a comprehensive Porsche or Porsche Specialist service history; it has definitely lived a life in the hands of enthusiasts.

The bodywork has been kept in the same fashion, maintaining its exemplary Porsche panel fit, brilliant depth of finish to the paintwork. This Porsche 930 Turbo is the ultimate road-going race-bred machine and is absolutely on the button mechanically - ready to drive off the showroom floor.

Standing head and shoulders above anything else at the time, with twenty-nine more horses over the previous variation, fatter tyres, and years of research and development under its belt, precious few cars could run with it then and there is nothing else on the road today that can offer such an engaging drive.

Examples like this well-documented, special order colour, low kilometre, and Australian-delivered 930 Turbo are rarely offered for sale and never last long.
