1987 Porsche 911 Turbo
The legendary 911 Turbo will always be one of the greatest sportscars in history, and this example is solidly part of that lineage. This Turbo's most recent owner of 17 years has taken excellent care of this documented, low mileage and numbers matching car, having added only 13,000 miles in just under two decades.
Records starting in 1996 show that the Turbo was very well serviced and maintained. The most recent owner began his tenure in 2000 by having the 65,000 mile car fully serviced and by having the engine completely rebuilt. Later receipts reveal yearly maintenance and care, and most recently the car receive a new clutch and rear engine seal.
Since arriving at Canepa the Turbo has been thoroughly examined, and fully detailed. With the 930 leading the charge of the ever-increasing values of air-cooled Porsches, this car is an excellent entry into that market. If you are looking for the ultimate '80's 911 at a great price point that is ready to drive and be enjoyed, you have found that car.

In 1974 Porsche introduced the first production turbocharged 911. Adapting turbo-technology originally developed for the 917 Can-Am cars Porsche created what was internally known as the 930. The body shape is distinctive thanks to wide wheel-arches to accommodate the wide tires, and a large rear spoiler often known as a "whale tail" on the early cars, and "tea-tray" on the later ones. Starting out with a 3.0 L engine with 256 horsepower these early cars are known for their exhilarating acceleration coupled with challenging handling and turbo lag. For 1978, capacity rose to 3.3 liter with 296 horsepower, and an intercooler was added which was placed under the large rear spoiler. 0-60 mph the 930 was clocked at a blazing 5.0 seconds flat, with a top speed of 162 mph. The price for a new 930 in 1979 was close to $40,000, and its performance put it in direct competition with Ferrari and Lamborghini.
Changing emissions regulations forced Porsche to withdraw the 930 from the US in 1980. Their expectation that the 928 would replace the 911 kept them from developing the 930 for the US market. When the 911 remained Porsche's bestseller through the 80s Porsche re-introduced the 930 to the US market in 1986 with an emission-controlled engine producing 282 hp. This version would be the most civilized and easy to drive version of the 930 until its replacement by the 964 Turbo in 1990.
