By the mid-1970s, the automotive industrys focus on performance was just starting to settle in. 0 to 60 and quarter mile times were now just a fraction of what they had been just a few years earlier. Porsche, on the other hand, seemed to constantly be pushing the envelope using an exhaust driven turbocharger to achieve simply astounding results. The 3.2L Porsche 930, most commonly known as the Porsche 911 Turbo, could do a 0-60 time of approximately 4.9 seconds at a time when new Corvette and Ferrari competitors were having difficulty reaching the same distance in less than 8 seconds. However, due to the short wheelbase and engine positioning, handling could be tricky. This did not seem to deter enthusiasts and Porsche fanatics from jumping at the opportunity to own a Porsche 911 Type 930. The on and off of the turbo boost also caused issues for handling, but when the turbo was on, drivers were in for a real treat. Characterized by flared fenders and a whale tail rear spoiler, the Porsche 930 would be offered in several styles throughout production, including Porsche 930 Targa, Cabriolet, Coupe and Speedster options. If youre thinking about buying a Porsche 930, youll find a nice selection of models available to you throughout the classic car market.
Designed with buyers in mind, youll find a wealth of resources available to you throughout this website including Buyers Tips for specific makes and models. When purchasing a Porsche 911 Turbo Type 930, for example, it is critical to decide how important originality is to you, as many of these examples have been re-tuned or adapted for added performance over the years. If youre looking for a model you can restore, this may not be vitally important to you. However, if youre in search of a pristine original that can be shown at the finest classic car shows, you may want to invest in a 911 Turbo that is truly original. These choices are all dependant on personal preference and your desired use for the car. Another important Buyers Tip is to have any potential purchase evaluated and inspected by a qualified Porsche specialist that can alert you to any potential areas of concern. Doing so can save you thousands of dollars in the long run and can help to ensure youre making a solid investment in the classic car market.
