There’s no other car quite like Porsche’s 911 Turbo. Admired for being the only true everyday supercar, the Turbo builds on the 911’s mantra for seamlessly blending practicality and performance and takes it to a whole new level, adding explosive power, striking features and cutting-edge technology into the mix. The ultimate do-it-all 911 with style and elegance in droves, the Turbo has simply always sat at the top of the tree, right from its debut in 1975.

Much like the 911 itself, the Porsche Turbo has enjoyed consistent evolution rather than all-out revolution throughout its 47-year production run. This is particularly so for the Turbo’s early years when it was more commonly referred to by its Typ 930 internal model designation from 1975 through to 1989. In those 14 years Porsche’s 930 evolved from a rapid if agricultural performance weapon to a rather more sophisticated supercar. It got faster, sure, but the Turbo also became more efficient and easier to drive, too.

From its more humble beginnings as a 3.0-litre, four-speed and whaletailed machine putting out 260hp in the 1970s, by the mid-1980s the 930 had morphed into a 3.3-litre, intercooled car with 300hp and, by 1989, five forward gears. The last year of 930 production is thus considered the most desirable, that five-speed box making better use of the Turbo’s eruptive power.

It was generally known the 930 would benefit from a 5-speed gearbox instead of the 4-speed gearbox that was used. Therefore a lot of customers actually wanted a 911 Turbo with 5 speed transmission, however Porsche was not confident enough to put the G50 gearbox in the Turbo because of the brutal power of these cars. They only had a 5-speed gearbox mounted in the 1989 911 Turbo.

This black on black 930 is one of only 797 European Coupés produced in 1989 with the G50 gearbox. The car was originally delivered in Germany by Porsche Centre Autohaus on January 5th, 1989.

We own this car since 2011 and are presumably its 3rd custodian.

The 1989 Turbos already were very fully equipped from factory, with such as air conditioning, electrically adjustable (8-way) front sports seats, Soundsystem, central door locking, etc. In addition, the following options were added on top:

  • 139 – Seat heating left
  • 220 – limited slip differential 40%
  • 243 – shortened shift lever
  • 328 – Casette-radio Blaupunkt Bremen SQR 46
  • 340 – Seat heating right
  • 567 – Top-tinted windscreen
  • 650 – Sunroof
  • 975 – Velours carpet in luggage compartment

The car is in a very nice and perfectly original condition with only 116,000 kilometers in the clock! The paint is still the original factory paint with the exception of the left rear wing and is in incredible condition!

The car is 100% accident free and is matching numbers.

This 930 comes with the original owner’s manuals and service booklets in their leather case, the original tool roll, original compressor jack, Certificate of Authenticity and service invoices.

It just has received an extensive service by Porsche Classic Gelderland for almost 20.000€.

In short, a top collector!
