The Porsche 930 was introduced as a 1975 model at the Paris Motor Show. Arriving in the United States for the 1976 model year, the Porsche 930 (or Porsche 911 Turbo) would be considerably more expensive that the top-of-the-line Porsche 911S Targa of the era. While Stuttgart was concerned about its ability to sell such an expensive production car, they committed to producing at the 400 models required for homologation over a two-year period. They had no need to be worried. The Porsche 911 Turbo would become an instant icon of exceptional engineering and design. In fact, from its launch until 1989, more than 23,300 first-generation Turbos were built. The 1984 Porsche 930 is an excellent example of these first-generation classics. It also marks a time in Porsche 911 Turbo history when, due to new emissions regulations, Porsche was forced to withdraw the Turbo from the U.S and Japanese markets. Over the course of production, several changes would take effect. While no specific changes were made during 1984, the 1984 model encompasses the 1983 model-year changes including two extra heater blowers, a revised exhaust system with a separate muffler for the wastegate, and a revised CIS fuel injection system with warm-up regulator and fuel distributor.
The 1984 Porsche 930 is also highly sought-after by collectors and enthusiasts, as this was the year that Porsche produced the fastest of the 930 Turbos with an exceptional 0-60 time of 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 173mph. Original, unmolested examples of the 1984 Porsche 911 Turbo Type 930 can command excellent values in todays classic car market. Of course, buyers are cautioned to have all potential purchase inspected by a qualified Porsche mechanic. Additionally, because these 1984 Porsche 930 examples were not officially imported into the United States, models found in America today are often grey-market cars that were privately imported during the mid-to-late 1980s and converted to meet U.S. emissions standards. While most of the bugs and hiccups would have been worked out by now, it is quite important to have a mechanic confirm the quality of the conversion and to inspect the components that would have been involved. These are just a few of the Buyers Tips for the classic 1984 Porsche 930.
