1987 Porsche 911 Turbo VIN: WP0JB0938HS051452 Only 5326 miles One-owner, Southern California car Purchased new in March of 1988 in Houston, TX, the original owner moved to Southern California months later. It's first California registration was in January 1989. The original owner would go on to drive the car very rarely and kept it in top mechanical condition. It has a complete California smog inspection history from 1992, when the car is recorded to have only 1259 miles. Ten years later it had 1608 miles, and ten years after that only 5167 miles. Current mileage is 5326. Since its arrival at Canepa the 930 has received a complete concours level detail including partial disassembly and full steam cleaning. All of its mechanical systems have been checked and any issues addressed. This time capsule car is ready for concours judging or spirited driving. Options: Sport Steering Wheel Limited Slip Differential Alarm System Sunroof About the 930 In 1974 Porsche introduced the first production turbocharged 911. Adapting turbo-technology originally developed for the 917 Can-Am cars Porsche created what was internally known as the 930. The body shape is distinctive thanks to wide wheel-arches to accommodate the wide tires, and a large rear spoiler often known as a whale tail on the early cars, and tea-tray on the later ones. Starting out with a 3.0 L engine with 256 horsepower these early cars are known for their exhilarating acceleration coupled with challenging handling and turbo lag. For 1978, capacity rose to 3.3 liter with 296 horsepower, and an intercooler was added which was placed under the large rear spoiler. 0-60 mph the 930 was clocked at a blazing 5.0 seconds flat, with a top speed of 162 mph. The price for a new 930 in 1979 was close to $40,000, and its performance put it in direct competition with Ferrari and Lamborghini. Changing emissions regulations forced Porsche to withdraw the 930 from the US in 1980. Their expectation that the 928 would replace the 911 kept them from developing the 930 for the US market. When the 911 remained Porsche's bestseller through the 80's Porsche re-introduced the 930 to the US market in 1986 with an emission-controlled engine producing 278 hp. In 1976 production figures of the 930 qualified it for FIA Group 4 competition, with the racing version called the Porsche 934. Many participated at Le Mans and other endurance races. The wilder FIA Group 5 version called Porsche 935 evolved from the 2.1 L RSR Turbo of 1974. Fitted with a slope nose, the 600+ hp car was campaigned in 1976 by the factory, winning the world championship title. Private 935 teams went on to win many races, like Le Mans in 1979, and continued to compete successfully with the car well into the 1980s until the FIA and IMSA rules were changed. -
