The Porsche 930, more commonly known as the Porsche 911 Turbo, was a unique rear-engine sports car produced by Porsche of Germany between 1975 and 1989. Representing the top-of-the-line Porsche offering of the era, the Porsche 930 was clearly quite the performer, but was also an ambitious step into the future. While Turbos were not unheard of in racing, they were still very rare on the street. The few road cars that did play around with the idea of turbo charging were ultimately unsuccessful. Porsche engineers would experiment with design challenges and would use their advanced technical knowledge to produce a turbocharged concept that was ready for the street. Throughout its production run, the Porsche 930 would be offered in Coupe, Cabriolet, Speedster and Targa variants each with their own characteristics and market appeal. If youre interested in buying a classic Porsche 930 Coupe, youve come to the right place to learn more.

There are a few considerations to make when purchasing a Porsche 930 Coupe. While rust should not be a major problem for any post-1978 Porsche 930 Coupe that hasnt been repaired or repainted, its likely that most have suffered from some type of disturbance to their rust proofing. Always check the sills, wheel arches, trunk floor and door skins. You should also verify door gaps are consistent. If they arent this could be evidence of major body repair. Similarly, look at the rear wing mounting points for cracks and distortion, which can indicate previous body damage. Inside the Porsche 930 Coupe, look for an example with quality finishes. Porsche trim is among the best in the business, so an example with cracked vinyl or poor leather has likely been neglected over the years. Mechanically, check that the heater delivers warm air with no odor of oil and that the sunroof, if available, works without shuddering. These are just a few of the Buyers Tips that can help you navigate the purchase of a classic Porsche 911 Turbo Type 930.
