After much anticipation, we are proud to offer for auction what is now known as the “OTLW”. In addition to being one of the most important production cars in Porsche history, this particular 930 Turbo also has quite a history. Before being purchased by the current owner/seller, the car was owned by Porsche collector and cultural icon, Magnus Walker. This Turbo can be found in a number of magazine articles and online features including: the short film "Turbo Fever", Duck and Whale Magazine, and a number of Fifteen 52 promotional segments. The car continues to gain popularity among the Porsche community under the current ownership as the "Paddington OTLW". This 1976 Turbo is said to be the 13th delivered to the US, making it a very early and special example. It is now being offered for auction by the current owner out of Paddington, Sydney, Australia.
Earlier this year, Exclusive Body Werks in Sydney, AU (authorized Porsche shop) was commissioned to perform a complete exterior paint refinish in its original factory color of Black. The Magnus Walker designed Fifteen52 wheels, a perfectly placed Outlaw decal, and lowered stance work together to create the badass look you see today. The F:15x8 and R:15x10 wheels are wrapped in a brand new set of Pirelli P7 Corsa tires.
Also, earlier this year, ProStitch in Sydney, AU completed a full refresh of OTLW’s black leather interior. This included reupholstering the original front sports seats/doors and installing new carpeting. All electronics are in excellent working order including the under-dash air-conditioning unit and upgraded VDO stereo system. Putting the driver in touch with the road is a vintage MOMO steering wheel (original is included with the sale).
This 930 Turbo retains its numbers matching 3.0L air-cooled flat-six engine that is capable of producing approximately 256HP. The visceral driving experience has been noticeably improved with the addition of a custom twin-pipe exhaust lowered suspension. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual transmission that was completely rebuilt in 2015. The seller states that the car has been extremely well-maintained under his ownership. All recent mechanical work was performed by Autohaus Hamilton, including an engine-out mechanical refresh and major service, which includes:
A copy of all receipts since the current owner's purchase will be included with the sale.
