This is a car that’s on my list of cars to own some day. I absolutely love the early model Porsche 911 Turbo (heck, I love the later ones too!) and have always dreamed about owning one of these early model years. Specifically a 1978 or 1979.
This example appears to have had a lot of TLC over the years with a lot of the rebuild work already completed. I’m not in love with the red interior, but could definitely live with it.
Here are some highlights from the auction:
1979 Porsche 930 3.3 flat six turbo finished in Slate Grey Metallic over Can Can Red leather. All work performed less then 3000 miles ago!
Bare metal respray in Porsche slate grey metallic using PPG Global Paint System.
New interior with factory early sport seats
New stereo with upgraded speakers
Fully rebuilt stock engine
Fully rebuilt stock transmission with the factory limited slip differential
Fully rebuilt stock KKK 3LDZ turbo
New fuel lines and fuel pumps
New Sachs spring centered clutch
New engine mounts
New rubber seals throughout
Euro headers/heat exchangers and a new Dansk Sport Muffler.
Brake system just flushed with ATE Super Blue fluid
New Pagid Black brake pads all around
New Bilstein HD Shocks and Strut Inserts
Rebuilt steering rack
New tie rods
8″ Fuchs all around
Porsche Hand Painted Center Caps on the wheels
New H4 headlights
New foglight lenses
35% Tint on the windows and across the top of the windshield
Professionally lowered, aligned, and corner balanced weight distribution is 39%F 61%R with a 51% cross.
Receipts for all work done.
This car runs and drives excellent, I would not hesistate to drive this car cross country. It has been my fare weather daily driver since the restoration was complete and has performed flawlessly!
This baby went for $25,655. Anything in the mid to low 20’s on an authentic, numbers matching, 1978 or 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo is a great deal. I’d love to fly in, buy one like this and drive it home. Preferably cross country.
