It is our pleasure to present this 1988 Porsche 930 Turbo Coupe finished in Grand Prix White. One of only 701 U.S. market examples produced for the model year, this 1988 Turbo Coupe was generously appointed from the factory with Silver Grey Special Leather upholstery, heated and power-adjustable Sport Seats, a black velour luggage compartment, a sunroof, and a steering wheel with an elevated hub. A lifelong West Coast car, this Turbo had been under the care of its original owner in Washington up until 2015 when it was acquired by the second and most recent owner. Perhaps one of the finest 930s on the market, this Turbo is described to have been preserved in exceptional show-quality condition and has been recently treated to a major service in preparation for sale. This highly original 930 is now being offered for auction out of Southern California with approximately 6,500 miles showing on the odometer.
This Turbo was ordered in Grand Prix White and features 16” Fuchs wheels with painted centers, anodized lips, and colored Porsche center crests. The paint is described to be entirely original while remaining in pristine condition throughout, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The car was recently treated to professional detailing and the wheels are mounted with Michelin Pilot SX tires dated from 2015. These tires bear approximately 500 miles of use and the original factory-equipped tires are also said to accompany the sale.
Inside, this Turbo showcases a Silver Grey Special Leather interior including optional leather Sport Seats with heating and electric height adjustment. Other features include a steering wheel with an elevated hub, an electric sunroof, and special black velour carpeting in the luggage compartment. The cabin presents like new with the factory Blaupunkt radio remaining in place. Air conditioning, power windows, and an 8-speaker sound system are equipped as standard and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be working properly.
