Still encompassing the exceptional design quality and iconic curvature that the Porsche 911 Turbo had become known for, several small changes were made to the 911 Turbo in 1983. To improve interior heat, the 1983 Porsche 930 (or Porsche 911 Turbo) would receive two extra heater blowers. The exhaust system was also revised, and a separate muffler was added for the wastegate; previously, the wastegate dumped into the primary muffler. Lastly, the CIS fuel injection would be revised with a different warm-up regulator and fuel distributor. Also during this time, another special-order 325hp performance option was introduced. Along with a performance upgrade, the package included a four-pipe exhaust and another oil cooler that required a re-designed front spoiler, additional ventilation holes in the rear fenders and modified rockers. Equipped with a 3.3L engine, it is estimated that more than 18,700 examples of the Porsche 930 3.3L would be built prior to production ending in 1989. All examples offered a four-speed manual transmission. If youre considering buying a 1983 Porsche 930, youve come to the right place to learn valuable Buyers Tips and model information for these iconic classics.
When buying a 1983 Porsche 930, there should be a number of items on your checklist. First, rust should not be a problem for these post-1978 930 models. Although, you should always check the sills, wheel arches, trunk floor and door skins, as previous damage to the car or repairs can cause disturbance to the original rust proofing. When it comes to the engine and transmission, the flat-six Porsche engines are typically quite reliable. There is no excuse for skipped maintenance or amateur repairs, however. Always have a qualified Porsche mechanic inspect any potential purchase for problem areas. As for brakes, reasonably heavy pressure is needed and they tend to do their best when warmed up. Squealing discs or premature lock-up can be signs of imminent repairs. Again, a quality inspection will help you have a better understanding of the overall condition of the classic Porsche 911 youre interested in.
