Now available for auction at no reserve is this 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe finished in Black. The flagship Porsche 911 of its day, this Turbo came generously optioned with a limited-slip differential, Burgundy leather upholstery, and heated front seats with adjustable lumbar support. Delivered to its original owner at the Porsche factory through the Tourist Delivery Program on January 28th, 1987, this Turbo was imported to the U.S. where it was serviced through Beverly Hills Porsche during the early years of its life. It later changed hands between owners in Colorado, Tennessee, South Carolina, and most recently Indiana. In the last several years, this 930 has been upgraded with a Fabspeed intercooler and exhaust system while also undergoing some noteworthy service items. This classic air-cooled Turbo is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New York showing approximately 63k miles on the odometer.
This 930 comes finished in nonmetallic Black and features Fabspeed quad exhaust tips, a rear window wiper, a periscope-style third brake light, and black rear quarter stone guards. An invoice from 2018 shows the front hood to have been refinished to address a cosmetic imperfection along with modifications to the rear bumper to accommodate the aftermarket exhaust tips. The condition of the exterior is described as commensurate with the car’s age and mileage, showing light pitting on the windshield and minor signs of road-going wear throughout the body. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report. The 16” Fuchs wheels come dressed in a set of Pirelli tires dated from 2018.
Inside, you will find an attractive Burgundy leather interior with matching carpets, optional front seat heating, and adjustable lumbar support. Other factory features include an alarm system, air conditioning, power windows, and an electric sliding sunroof. A few small cracks are depicted on the dashboard along with some wear to the driver seat bolster. The sound system has been upgraded with an Alpine Bluetooth radio, amplifier, and aftermarket speakers. Records show the replacements of the sunroof seals, windshield seal, and weatherstripping all within the last several years. All gauges and accessories are said to remain fully functional including the A/C which was serviced in March of 2019.
Power comes from a turbocharged and intercooled 3.3L flat-six engine rated at 282 HP and 289 lb.-ft of torque stock. The rear wheels are driven through a 4-speed manual transmission and a factory-optioned limited-slip differential. An upgraded Fabspeed intercooler was installed by Redstone Performance Engineering of Indianapolis in 2018 along with upgraded silicone intake hoses, air filter, and a Fabspeed performance exhaust system with upgraded heat exchangers and wastegate outlet. Service items addressed in recent years include new heater control valve cables, a heater control module, drive-belt adjustment, shift linkage and pedal assembly repair, new rear parking brake shoes, a brake fluid flush, and a new oil crossover pipe. Corresponding invoices are provided for reference in the photo gallery.
This sale will include the original owner's manuals and sales literature, a set of two keys, a toolkit, some service records, and a clean title. Offered at no reserve, this nicely presented '87 Turbo presents an excellent opportunity to own one of the most iconic air-cooled Porsches of all time.
