1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

This 1976 Porsche 930 strikes me as nearly the antithesis to the Riviera Blue GT4 I featured over the weekend. Whereas the GT4 showcases a wealth of modern technology wrapped in a vibrant hue bringing excitement and vitality to your drive, this 930 brings with it darkness and all of the potentially tricky dynamics of an early 911 Turbo. If you are a fan of the aggressive black visage that certain cars are capable of possessing, then this 930 should suit you in spades. It’s likely fast, loud, and raucous in ways that only older cars can be and certainly will lack the scalpel like precision of an instrument like the GT4. And while the GT4 will turn a lot of heads because of its grace and beauty, this 930 should do the same through the sheer force of its presence. You shan’t look away, for fear of being bitten.

I can’t decide whether I’m being too over the top with this 930 or not. There is a certain soul-sucking darkness here – and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. I don’t imagine this 930 was meant to be pretty, and it isn’t. It is itself kind of over the top so I think my description suits it well. Both this and the GT4 really grabbed my attention, but for entirely different reasons.

As should be fairly apparent to anyone familiar with these early Turbos, this example is far from original. Much of its mechanical state has been altered with upgrades to the suspension, braking, and turbo itself. The interior and exterior received modifications as well with the interior being the more heavily modified of those, though it’s all plainly discernible as a 930. But both aesthetically and mechanically this is a different beast.

I’m curious why a ’76 930 was utilized given the relative value of these early cars and the later pre-’89 cars. I suppose you work with what you’re given, but it should go without saying that this 930 will be much less valuable in its current state than if it were original. That’s not necessarily a bad thing because at least it won’t need to be confined to the garage. It’s a pretty cool 930 though and with bidding sitting at only $40,100 it may not be all that expensive either. There’s certainly a lot to check out, but I think it’s worth the extra work. Assuming, of course, you appreciate having a little darkness in your life.

  1. Wow. Just wow. That is a cool looking German hot rod. Not really original and sure to be a handful to drive, but like you say, it’s “likely fast, loud, and raucous” and I bet so much fun to drive.

    It’s pretty neat to see a 930 with these miles and set up so you can imagine driving it.

  2. Black/black. I feel so……………………….intimidated.

  3. Centrelock wheels are awesome looking… probably wouldn’t have gone for the pink anodizing on the nuts though.

  4. I think $45k is probably as high as it will be bid. Seller is probably expecting at least 10k more, I agree with Dallas the pink wheel nuts are not good. I would make them (and the Turbo Carrera script) black.

  5. Just beautiful and fierce.

    That tachometer is bigger than my student loan debt.

  6. Bid to $65,100, did not appear to clear reserve.
