1988 Porsche 911 Turbo VIN: WP0JB0939JS050607 Paint to Sample: Ferrari Fly Yellow Documented low mileage Maintenance records from new Porsche Certificate of Authenticity Original books, window sticker, tools, jack and spare Sold new on July 14th, 1988 at Brumos Atlanta Porsche, this 930 was special ordered in the unusual color of Ferrari Fly Yellow. The first owner would keep the car until 2000, covering only 24,000 miles. The next owner covered only another 8,000 miles in his 10 years of ownership. The most recent owners would keep the car as the collectable it is, and show it at the Porsche Club of America Concours in Atlanta and Milwaukee, along with other PCA events where it would win numerous First in Class awards. Since arriving at Canepa the Turbo has been thoroughly assessed both mechanically and cosmetically, and now shows and drives as a 3,600 miles car. With the 40 anniversary of the 930 this year, there has never been a better time to invest in this Porsche icon. Porsche Options: Paint to Sample: Ferrari Fly Yellow Blaupunkt Radio Reno Limited Slip Differential Alarm System Electric Sliding Roof Luggage Compartment Black Velour 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. -
