In 1975, Porsche released its first production turbo-charged 911 and the world was changed forever. Well, perhaps it wasn’t that dramatic. The 930, as it was also known, remained in production worldwide until 1989, though US production ceased from 1980 to 1986 due to emissions regulations. Aesthetically it remained largely unchanged throughout its model run. The greatest change came in 1978 when displacement was increased from 3.0 liters to 3.3 liters, and then in its final model year the car was switched to the 5-speed G50 transmission (all previous years utilized a 4-speed manual transmission). For many Porschephiles, the 930 remains a hallowed car; the first car that really began to set our hearts afire through its aggressive styling and brutal wars with the laws of physics. Quite simply it is fantastic! The example featured here has undergone two major transformations from its original nature as a 1976 Porsche 930: first, the original 3.0 liter turbocharged flat-6 has been replaced with the 3.3 liter motor of the post-1978 930. Second, at some point this was converted to a Slantnose, a factory option that was unavailable during this car’s original production year.
