930 TURBO HISTORY

The Porsche 930 Turbo was a genuine 'Supercar' that defined the seventies and eighties and was one of the fastest production cars available at the time. It was first seen at the 1973 Paris Auto Show and full production commenced two years later. The basic engine underpinnings came from the Carrera 2.7 RS which was increased to 3.0 litres and, of course, turbocharged with technology gained from Porsche's 917/30 Can-Am program and the brakes came directly from the Porsche 917 race car. The bodywork received special treatment resulting in one of the most aggressive looking Porsches ever made with its wide arches and impressive rear whale-tail.  The final evolution of the 930 Turbo saw the engine capacity increased to 3299cc, with improved upgrades on the intercooler and, for some, the fitment of the G50 transmission.
