The 1986 Porsche 930 would mark the highly anticipated return of the Porsche 911 Turbo to the United States market. While the car had previously been called the Porsche 930 in the American market, it would return simply as the 911 Turbo. A new catalytic converter-equipped exhaust system with an oxygen sensor would allow the 1986 Porsche 930 to meet U.S requirements, while also allowing the car to offer 278hp. Additional changes included new wheels that measured 16×8 inches in the front and 16×9 inches in the back. Tires were 225/50VR16 and 245/45VR16 respectively. It is also important to mention that for the first time, the fender flares were stamped into the quarter panels instead of being welded to standard 911 sheet metal. Coinciding with the reunion of the Porsche 911 Turbo and the American roads would be the release of the Targa and Cabriolet versions, both of which were welcomed with open arms. If youre thinking about buying a 1986 Porsche 930, it is certainly one that represents a happy moment in Porsche history, as the market was highly anticipating the 911 Turbos return to America at the time.
When buying a 1986 Porsche 930, always be sure to have the model authenticated. This can be done in a number of ways; however, comparing the engine and chassis numbers to Porsche records is perhaps the most effective way. For some classics, sellers may even have a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. It is also a great idea to ask sellers for any and all documentation they may have regarding their 911 Turbo models history such as ownership records, maintenance and repair documents, and information on any restoration that has been done. For these older models, rust is typically not an issue; although careful inspection should be done to ensure that the rust proofing has not been compromised by collision or repair. Whether youre searching for a model to restore or one that is mint-condition, partnering with a classic car expert can be greatly beneficial to your search.
