We are pleased to present this 1977 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera finished in Ice Green Metallic over a green interior. Reported to be one of only 727 Porsche 911 Turbos delivered to the U.S. for the model year, this 1977 example was purchased by its original owner in Oakland California who kept the car up until the seller’s recent purchase in 2019. During the 1990s it received a Porsche 3.6 L flat-six 964 engine along with a G50 5-speed manual transmission and upgraded Brembo brakes. Offering naturally aspirated air-cooled performance along with the iconic styling of the original 911 Turbo, this custom 930 is now being offered for auction by its second owner out of Southern California accompanied by original books and a collection of records.
This 930 is presented in its highly desirable factory-specified color of Ice Green Metallic. The car is said to have been partially refinished over the course of its life and the paint is said to be in good condition overall with some cosmetic imperfections as shown in the photo gallery. This Turbo Carrera features a whale tail rear decklid, a front spoiler, fog lights, pop-out rear quarter windows, chrome window moldings, a sunroof, rear wiper, and classic Fuchs wheels with polished outer rims. New front tires are reported to have been mounted and balanced in 2018.
The green leather interior features black carpeting, custom Turbo script floormats, and an aftermarket 3-spoke steering wheel. An invoice from 1996 shows the installation of a new carpet kit, shift knob, door stop, and pedal assembly. Some signs of wear and age are present, and all gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional including the aftermarket radio and upgraded speakers.
In 1996 the original turbocharged engine in this 930 was swapped out in favor of a naturally aspirated 3.6 L flat-six paired with a G50 5-speed manual transmission sourced from Parts Heaven out of a Porsche 964 Targa. The engine is said to have had approximately 18k miles at the time of installation and the entire conversion was carried out by P.B.R. Restoration of Crockett, California. A supporting invoice can be found in the photo gallery along with images of the underside. Through records and correspondence with P.B.R. , the seller has determined the engine to have approximately 35k miles at this time. Upgraded Brembo 928 S4 front brakes are equipped and a major service was carried out in April of 2018 under the original ownership which included the following items:
This sale will include the original owner’s manuals and stamped warranty book, service records, the original tools and spare tire, a vintage tire pressure gauge, and a clean title. The ideal Porsche 911 for an avid air-cooled driving enthusiast, this 3.6 L 930 offers a very special opportunity.
