This 911 has had its original turbocharged motor swapped out in favor of a more responsive naturally aspirated 3.2 L flat-six engine. A 915 5-speed manual transmission is also equipped which delivers approximately 207 HP to the rear wheels. As a factory designated Turbo, this example features the larger brakes, sway bars and torsion bars of the Porsche 930. 10 months ago, a full service is said to have been carried out which included new fluids and filters as well as a new set of tires. This 911 is reported to be in outstanding driving condition.
