THE PORSCHE 930 TURBO

Much of the Porsche 911's development had resulted from the factory's racing program. It was the period Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, that spurred the development of 'Project 930': the legendary 911 Turbo. In production from April 1975, the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0-liter Carrera RSR engine in road trim, a combination that delivered 260bhp for a top speed of 155mph. But the Turbo wasn't just about top speed, it was also the best-equipped 911 and amazingly flexible - only four speeds in the gearbox. It was capable of racing from a standstill to 100mph in 14 seconds. The Porsche 930 Turbo sold in the thousands, becoming the definitive sports car of its age. 

Porsche made its first significant changes to the 930 for 1978 model year, enlarging the engine to 3.3 litres and adding an air-to-air intercooler. By cooling the pressurized air charge, the intercooler helped increase power to 296 hp at 5,500 rpm. The 3.3L engine was used from 1978 to 1992. A legendary car with outstanding performance and reliability.
