As one of the most prestigious automakers in the world, Porsche has always been known for their luxurious and sporty automobiles. Almost every Porsche ever produced has a very unique and distinct styling to them. When you see a Porsche on the road, they are instantly recognizable by their iconic and elegant shape. Porsche vehicles may be fun on the outside, but the impressive performance and handling is what really makes every Porsche come alive.
The Porsche 911 has a long history of greatness. The Turbo 911 is even more impressive. At the time of its introduction, the 911 Turbo was recognized as the fastest production car out of Germany. The 911 Turbo received many improvements over the 911 Carrera models. Since the Turbo has a significant boost in power over the Carrera, the Turbo needed a revised suspension, larger brakes and a stronger 4 speed gearbox to handle the added power. The Turbo also featured what is known as the “whale-tail” spoiler adding more down-force with larger rear arches to fit the bigger brakes and tires. The final result is improved grip with better handling.
Still a 911 at heart, the 930 continued its evolution. 1989 was the final year of production for the 930, but this was the only year the Turbo featured a 5 speed G50 manual transmission for a slicker shifting experience. The unique characteristics such as a short wheel base, rear wheel drive, and rear engine of the 911 meant that the car required more driver skill to get the most performance possible out of the car. Simply put, this car was built for driving enthusiasts.
Somehow, Fast Classics got their hands on an extremely rare 1990 Porsche 930 Turbo with the 5 speed G50 Manual transmission in the classic and very popular Slate Grey color. This exquisite and stunning automobile underwent an extensive 30k+ rebuild less than 500 miles ago. The car has been regularly maintained and even has extensive work history included. With a recent engine rebuild, interior work and full respray, this legendary Porsche 930 Turbo is ready to roll.
