If a powerful, one of a kind, meticulously executed Porsche Turbo hotrod is in your wheelhouse… this listing should grab your attention. In the early 1990’s legendary basketball Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen, summoned Perfect Power of Buffalo Grove, Illinois to build him his dream ride. This Guards Red over two-tone red/black custom interior cabriolet was based on a 930 Turbo. In addition to the sale price of the original car, over $130,000 was invested during the build process.
A new air-cooled twin turbocharged 3.8L engine was installed during the lengthy build and with 9:1 compression and 1 bar boost boasts an impressive 550-600hp. And yes, more is on tap. In addition to very tasteful custom body and interior work, the car has been lowered to enhance both the cars aggressive stance and high-performance driving capabilities. In order to handle the power output, the vehicle was upgraded with a G50 5-speed gearbox and short shifter. Receipts show that nearly $18,000 was invested into the transmission alone.
Rarity, Brutal Power, and provenance are three words that sum up this stunning Turbo.
Inside and out, this car is in superb condition and everything performs as it should. The winning bidder will receive a copy of Scotty Pippen’s title, which validates ownership history, enhances its collectability and possible overall value. The factory 930 turbo was built between 1975 and 1989 and considered by many to be the first true high performance road car that was also well suited for the track. Only towards the final years of production of 930 turbo, did Porsche produce the cabriolet variant. As a result, cabriolets are especially coveted by collectors and enthusiasts.
The vehicle offered here comes with extensive build receipts and clean Carfax showing no accidents or damage.
