Up for auction is this 1986 Porsche 930 Turbo. Being 1 of only 1,424 U.S.-specification 911 Turbos built for that model year, this is an opportunity to own a rare piece of Porsche history. The Turbo is known as Porsche's top-of-the-line 911, delivering very impressive performance and technology. This specific example has been in the hands of a well known Porsche collector based out of Texas up until this past year. It now resides at a factory authorized Porsche dealer in Fresno, California and is being offered in turn-key condition.
This Turbo is finished in factory Grand Prix White. The car shows very nicely and the paint is stated to be in above average condition given its age and mileage.

The car retains its original factory color matching Fuchs wheels.
The Black partial leather interior is stated to be in excellent condition showing minimal wear. Fitted with the sport touring package, sport seats, and air conditioning, this Turbo represents one of the more exclusive models on the market. All electronics are in working order including the upgraded head unit.
Power comes from a numbers matching 3.3L twin turbocharged engine that is connected to a 4-speed manual transmission. An oxygen sensor and Bosch DMR management system will help the car produce 282HP. Also highlighted on this Turbo is an independent front and rear suspension system and disc brakes w/ cross-drilled rotors.
In 2009, this Turbo was the beneficiary of a complete engine rebuild. The photo gallery includes detailed receipts of all prior work performed. The seller also added that the car has gone through a complete fluid service and safety check by their service department and that the car is turn-key condition.
The sale will include books, a clean Carfax, 2 keys, a binder of documentation, spare tire and tools.
After a six-year absence, the venerable 930 Turbo returned to Porsche line-up for the US in 1986. This is an opportunity to own a staple in the Porsche line up.
