1-Owner 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera Coupe

We are pleased to present this specially ordered 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo chassis #234, finished in incredibly rare Continental Orange (107) over a black interior.  Purchased new at Valley Porsche Audi on April 21st, 1976 by a local Spokane physician, this example had been under the watchful care of its original owner up until he passed last year at the age of 96.  Representing one of a reported 530 US-spec Turbo’s built for the model year, this coveted 930 is now being offered for auction with approximately 51k miles showing on the odometer.

The overall appearance of the exterior is stated to be in excellent survivor condition.  As expected, there are some minor signs of road-going wear.  The seller notes that the car was refinished in its original color circa 1980 and still maintains a vibrant shine.  The seller also noted one flaw on the right rear quarter panel above the taillight.  This 930 rides on an original set of Fuchs wheels which are said to remain in fair factory condition.  It is not too often to find an early 930 in such solid condition, not having been overly restored.

The black interior of this Turbo is shown to be in fantastic original condition.  Factory features include a sunroof, rear windshield wiper, and headlamp washers.  The seller has indicated that there is some wear on the passenger seat piping and that the sunroof is currently non-operational, however, all other gauges, electrical components and accessories remain fully functional.

The numbers matching air-cooled 3.0L turbocharged flat-six engine sends approximately 245 HP to the rear wheels by way of a traditional G30 4-speed manual transmission, which is stated to operate flawlessly.  In recent years, this 930 has been maintained by a longtime Porsche technician and former Mark Donohue racing team member. Having had a fresh service and its cam boxes resealed, this 930 is being offered in excellent driving condition.

The sale of this 930 will include original books and accessories, keys, some service records, and a clear title.  Do not miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an iconic 1-owner Turbo in ultra-rare Continental Orange.

    Good morning all. Thank you for looking at this early 930, neat car. I would like to take just a moment, if I may, to emphasize just how rare this car is. The 930 Registry http://930-turbo.com/registry/ lists only 4 (four) 930's that were manufactured in paint code 107 (Continental Orange) . I do understand that not all cars are listed, inclusive of this one. The good Dr owned the car from new and knew what he had. He wasn't a "club kind of guy" :)
    Chassis # 017 was reported as a set of books only, state of chassis unknown
    Chassis # 164 - 934/5 K3 conversion
    Chassis # 323 - reportedly resides in Australia and was built sans sunroof
    Chassis # 540 - 934 built by the factory.

    We now know that we can add this car to the mix and I "may" have located one other US production car but, have as of yet not been able to verify.

    I'm not sure if it is apropos for me to chime in here but, I thought the information available might be important to those interested in the car. (again the registry does not list "all" cars but it is a pretty comprehensive list and I thought the information has merit)

    Thanks again for looking.... KK

    @Slim_Chance The good Dr. lived at the end of an unpaved driveway a little over half a mile long. I picked up the car from the home he lived in for a very long time. Stone chips took their toll (look at the rear 1/4 panels in front of the rear wheels) The DR. was not about to move nor not drive his beloved car. Hence the chipping and repaint. The roof, yes, leave it to a Porsche expert, do not try to tackle this on your own if you do not have mechanical prowess. Thanks - KK

    Single stage colors like this last a long time so more information as to why it was resprayed would be nice. Sunroof repair will be daunting for anyone never having "been there, done that". Best left to a competent body shop familiar with the setup.

    @Fooshe You are so correct what a fabulous car!

    To quote J. Clarkson...."I THINK I JUST SOILED MYSELF!"

    What a beautiful and rare example of a fabulous car. I may take a swing on this one.

    @GillesB 1. Do you have maintenance books and receipts and if you do can you have them post ? Yes, I have the cars original books. Service history is not complete. The Dr. who owned the car from new passed last year at the age of 96. He was a "collector"of many things. The estate is STILL going through the home, hopefully the Dr kept a file but, until now, it has not been located. Refer to the text in the advert, cam boxes recently resealed and service performed.
    2. What was recently done on it and what is coming up ? Again, cam boxes resealed and serviced. What's next? With all due respect, the car is 44 years old. I drove the car just two days ago. It starts, runs and drives perfectly. I started working for Porsche myself in 1978. It is a very nice running car. As to "what is next"..... I cannot provide you with an average life expectancy of any component of any car, sorry.
    3. Interior looks like in need of refreshing: passenger seat, carpet in the back.......hard to see for me as your pics do not look like being high definition. Is there anything in the inside that we can not see? How is the headliner?...... The cars interior is absolutely original and again 44 years old. Door pockets are excellent, dash is excellent, glovebox door fit is good, the sunvisors are a bit crispy (pretty normal given the cars age) It does show normal wear, yes, the rear carpets are faded as are the fronts but all original. They are 44 years old. The headliner is in good condition.
    4. Do you ok inspection and which days and/or hous are good for you ? You are welcome to pay for a PPI, I have no problem with the car being inspected and can suggest two reputable people to do that for you.

    Again this car is offered as a one owner, 52,000 mile, remarkably original, documented ONE owner 930 in VERY rare paint code 107 that is 44 years of age. It is NOT pristine, nor is it being represented as such Gilles. I appreciate your interest, truly.

    @prl It looks as though the good Dr managed to back into something. If I were to make a guess, I'd say a truck bumper or something similar.. There was damage to the right rear 1/4 panel above the bumper and tail light housing and slightly into the right rear lower corner of the deck lid. The repair work was done to a level that I think was satisfactory to the good Dr and again, some 40 years ago. We think the paint work was done sometime in the 80's. I have not provided chassis shots as it has not been cleaned/detailed. I would rather leave that up to who-ever acquires the car. I do know the Porsche tech who took care of the car for the Dr. quite well. It is a solid car.

    Sorry for the confusion. Missed the photo with the sunroof.

  • prl 1 month, 1 weekago

    Was this in an accident prior to repaint? Close up of flaw? And under carriage pics?

    @rhmoritz photo 16 in the gallery below shows the sunroof.

  • porscheklaus (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Anyone else confused, I am and it's my car :) The car was ordered in color code 107 -Continental Orange. Black interior with sunroof, rear wiper, headlamp washers and without Air Conditioning. Please note, there are no center vents in the dash.
    It's a neat car, drove it yesterday, not a bad thing to do. Blue skies 28 degrees, the car was happy. KK
