- Only 25,900 miles from new
- European delivered

- Factory clearcoat under seal still visible
- Quite possible one the finest examples you will find
Presented in gorgeous Guard Red coachwork with pristine Schwartz ‘Black’ hide. Delivered new to its first owner the 2nd of September 1990 via concessions Porsche Espana Madrid, this particular example is one of the very last of the iconic 930 Turbos manufactured. Having stayed within the same single ownership for the next two decades where it accrued on average less than 1,000 miles per year by its first owner. Having resided in the dry climate in southern Spain its entire life prior to arriving into the United Kingdom the overall condition can only be described as time warp and quite possibly one of the finest examples of its type available today.
“The increase in performance makes the 3.3 the fastest accelerating car I have ever tested” winner of the 1960 Le Mans 24 Hours and doyen of ‘thinking racing drivers’ Paul Frère considers the new 911 Turbo 3.3 in his standard work on the model, ‘Porsche 911 Story’
In 1978, writers from the British magazine Motor declared the 3.3-litre Porsche Turbo the quickest production car they had ever driven.
The Porsche 911 Turbo 3.3
Just four months after the red-hot turbo of the Martini Racing 911 that finished second overall at the 1974 Le Mans 24 Hours had cooled down, Porsche announced a roadgoing version. The new car (referred to internally as a ‘930’, but never sold as such) was the company’s flagship model and became a byword for effortless performance, state-of-the-art technology and luxury.
At the heart of the first car was a single-turbocharged version of Porsche’s air-cooled 2,994cc flat-six, the Typ 930/50. Not only did turbocharging produce significantly more power (260bhp in Europe, 245bhp in North America), it made the engine cleaner, all the better to cope with ever-tougher emissions regulations.
The 911 Turbo’s stance – big Fuchs wheels and Pirelli tyres, a ‘whale tail’ wing from the 3.0 RS and black PVC ‘shark’s fin’ stone guards – became legendary. ‘Turbocharged’ soon enter the general lexicon, signifying anything that had been enhanced or boosted beyond measure.
In August 1977 Porsche announced a 3,299cc, intercooler Turbo, which replaced the 3.0-litre for the 1978 model year. Power was now 300bhp for Rest of the World (ROW) cars, 265bhp in the USA. A 10 per cent increase in power (and a staggering 20 per cent in torque) was the big news, but the new car was also given ‘917’ cross-drilled discs and four-pot callipers, which finally gave the Turbo proper stopping power.
