Up for auction is this tastefully modified 1987 Porsche 930 Turbo. Representing the first production turbocharged Porsche model, the 930 is characterized by its distinctive wide wheel-arches and iconic whale tale rear spoiler. This 1987 example showcases extensive performance upgrades and is now being offered for auction in excellent running condition by a seller in Ohio.
The sleek black finish on this 930 shows to be in great condition. A few flaws are noted including a minor clear-coat blemish in the roof and a missing seal on the sunroof. This 930 rides on 18” lightweight Fiske wheels with custom offsets for greatly improved steering geometry. These wheels are currently wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, however, it is suggested that they be replaced in the near future. Looking like no other 930 on the road, the exterior has been tastefully enhanced with the following custom modifications:
The interior of this Turbo also shows to be in great condition and features supportive Recaro seats as well as a 380mm Nardi steering wheel. Only a few minor interior flaws are noted including small cracks on the inner door pockets, a broken air-deflector pivot hinge, a missing heat lever, and some missing relays in the front fuse board. Minimal time and effort is required to bring this 930 back to its former glory. In order to save weight and boost this Turbo's performance ever further, the A/C system has been deleted along with the rear upper seats and rear sound pad. Additionally, RS rubber floor mats were installed.
Included in the sale will be a spare parts package that features an original numbers-matching 930 LSD transmission, stock seats, emissions equipment, bumpers, rear spoiler and many more original parts that are shown in the photo gallery.
This 930 carries a 3.3 L turbocharged flat six engine that has been outfitted with numerous performance upgrades. The previous owner estimates that given the extensive weight cutting measures, this 930 now weighs in at 400lbs less than stock. A partial service history is available and shows work done by notable shops such as TRE and TurboKraft. A recent full inspection by Steinels Autowerks is on hand and the compression and leak-down numbers show to be safe and consistent. The current owner addressed the immediate items on the inspection and serviced the car to the tune of $2500 in preparation for the driving season. Performance upgrades and modifications featured on this 930 consist of the following:
Although this 930 is offered in strong running order, the PPI has noted the following issues that may require some attention.
In addition to the spare parts package, the sale of this 930 will include some service records, two sets of keys and the original owner’s manual. This vehicle is accompanied by a clear title and stands ready to be delivered to its next owner.
