Up for auction is this tastefully modified 1978 Porsche 930 Turbo. Featuring a unique color combination, extensive high-end upgrades, and a clean bill of health, this Turbo is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner. This 2-owner Turbo is being offered for auction out of Florida by the selling dealer with 32k miles currently showing on the odometer.
Said to hold its original Copper Brown Metallic factory paint, the car is showing typical signs of road going wear, but overall stands in great condition. The seller does report rock chips to the front end and slight chipping on the edge of the rear hatch. Factory options include a sunroof and headlight washers. Equipped with coil-overs in the rear, 23mm front torsion bars, and upgraded HRE wheels, this turbo holds a very distinctive look with upgraded performance to match.
The brown leather Interior is said to be in above average condition with only slight signs of wear. Noteworthy interior upgrades include RS America door panels, Porsche sport seats, Cocoa mats, dual A/F gauges, dual EGT gauges, full roll cage, and a rear seat delete.
The power plant has been upgraded to a 3.8L 964 based engine with custom water-cooled twin turbos and an HKS boost controller. Boosting performance even further are a handful of upgrades including a custom-geared G50 cup transmission, RUF CTR clutch disc, 240mm GT2 clutch plate, and C2 Cup flywheel, and head/cylinder work performed by German Precision. The seller states the car to be in excellent running condition with the most recent service being the replacement of all spark plugs, a repair to fuel injection wiring, and the replacement of fuel injection components (pressure regulator diaphragm). The car has also been completely looked over by Gulf Performance in Pompano, FL prior to being listed up for auction.
The sale will include extensive records and receipts of work done to the car along with one key.
