We are pleased to present this rare and sought-after 1989 Porsche 930 Turbo S. Belonging to a highly exclusive family of custom-tailored cars built by Porsche’s Special Wishes Program, this 1989 example features a very unique and extremely uncommon option group which identifies it as a Type 770/930S or “930 Turbo S”. Originally commissioned by a prominent German car dealer, this Turbo was sold and exported to Japan in 1991 where it would remain in private collections up until the current owner’s purchase in 2019. Showcasing a factory 3.3 L turbocharged “S” engine mated to a G50/50 manual transmission, this 930 Turbo S makes the obvious choice for any discerning Porsche collector. It is now being offered out of California with just 57,668 kilometers (35833 miles) on the odometer.
Finished in Slate Grey Metallic, the paint on this 930 is stated to be in excellent condition. Upon its recent arrival in the U.S. the car was completely gone through and found to be in excellent condition. A collection of detailed images is provided in the photo gallery. This Turbo S can be distinguished by its special front air dam spoiler with integrated fog lights and oil-cooler inlet as well as its revised rear lower valance with quad-tip exhaust. Other noteworthy features include a “tea tray” rear spoiler, euro-style side marker lights, and Fuchs light-alloy wheels which come dressed in new Pirelli P Zero tires.
Inside, the black leather upholstered cabin receives special treatments including a unique center console arrangement, front leather comfort seats, and a combination of a 6,800 RPM rev limit on a 7,000 RPM tachometer with a 300 KPH / 320 KPH speedometer and 1 BAR boost gauge positioned directly in front of the driver. Factory options include a Blaupunkt “Reno” radio, power windows, power-adjustable seats, and air conditioning. This particular example highlights a one-off 150 L high-capacity fuel tank which eliminates provisions for a spare tire. All gauges, electrical components, and accessories are stated to be fully functional.
A rare 3.3 L turbocharged Type 930/66S flat-six engine sends 330 HP to the rear wheels by way of a desirable 5-speed G50/50 manual transmission and is equipped with an essential limited-slip differential. This engine is fitted with factory performance upgrades including revised ignition timing and fuel injection, a larger K27 KKK turbocharger and wastegate, a massive front-mounted oil cooler, and a free-flowing non-catalyst exhaust system with quad tips. Weighing in at approximately the same as a standard 930 but with an added 30 HP, the Turbo S offers a considerable improvement in both top speed and acceleration. This car was initially accompanied by a special extended 10-year warranty issued by Porsche’s Client Services; however, an examination of internal records reveal that no warranty work had ever taken place. Since its recent arrival in the U.S. this Turbo has been completely gone through, safety inspected and serviced. Stated to be in excellent driving condition, this one of a kind 930 is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
The sale of this exceptional Porsche 930 Turbo S will include two keys, original owner’s manuals, tools, maintenance books, service records, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. Do not miss out on this potentially a once in a lifetime opportunity to add a 930 Turbo S to your collection.
