Revealed at the 1974 Paris Auto Show, the concept Porsche 930 sparked a turbo street car era and was the beginning of what would span a long 15-year production run from 1975 to 1989. Taking their motorsports experience and applying it to their street car, the 930 became the turbo-boosted hot rod 911 that you could buy from the factory, with a warranty. Originally released with a 3.0-liter engine, in 1978 the 930 received a 3.3-liter engine which helped with turbo lag and power, bumping up the power from 260hp to 300hp. For the last production year of 1989 all 930s received 5-speed manual transmissions, making this year special to collectors. Porsche now makes a 911 Turbo variant for every 911 generation, all due to the success and critical acclaim to the car that started it all, the Porsche 930.
Completed at the Porsche factory on November 10th, 1988, this Grand Prix White Turbo was originally sold at Hexroat International Auto in East Moline, Illinois on February 25th, 1989. It would be registered for the first time 10 miles away across the Mississippi river in Davenport, Iowa. In 1991 the Turbo would be sold to a collector in Canada, who took immaculate care of the car during their ownership. Rarely driven and only in excellent weather, the car was regularly serviced by John Scotti Automobiles in Montreal, and the 930 was kept in a climate-controlled facility. The car would remain in Quebec until it arrived at Canepa in June of 2014.
Upon arrival at Canepa, the Grand Prix White 930 was inspected both meticulously and empathetically. Finding a Porsche 930 with mileage just over 10,633 miles that had been maintained and taken care of such as this example was a rare find. After Canepa's inspection, the car was found to be in both excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition, worthy to be presented on any show lawn. The car was then sold to a client of Canepa's in August 31st, 2015 which was just in time for Rennsport V. He would enjoy the car for close to 2 years before the car returned to Canepa as part of a trade for another vehicle from Canepa's inventory, and the car was then sold to its most recent owner.
The Porsche 911 Turbo, referred to as the 930 by many, was a milestone for Porsche both on the street and racetrack. Without the 930, there wouldn't be a 934, a 935, and all the races and championships that those cars won. With direct lineage to the race track, these street cars combine a level of raw unadulterated power with pure driver enjoyment. Now available for its new owner and just in time for Rennsport VI, you too can drive the Porsche that started it all for all 911 Turbos that we know today.
