Porsche 930 Turbo LHD coupe 1988


930 Turbo, left hand drive German spec C00.

This 930 is going to make the next owner very happy. Opening the garage on a Sunday morning and seeing this sat there, turning the key and hearing that unique 911 turbo rumble and crackle and whine, that’s what we love.

Supplied new in Germany but delivered to Japan, where it has lived beneficially for most of its life. Over the last ten years we have brought some really nice classic Porsche from Japan; often these cars are prized, high status possessions, meticulously maintained, kept indoors and used sparingly in summer. This is one of the nice ones.

The car presents very well indeed. Grand Prix white (original colour) body is very nice; especially notable, no corrosion, no signs of panel changes (accident), excellent panel gaps and fit. Only the addition of the race style front spoiler strays from original. Under the trunk it’s the same story, clean, undamaged, original and again, the underside of the car is clean and free from corrosion. It has all the hallmarks of a low km, dry usage, carefully maintained Porsche.

Inside you have very nice dash, no cracks and clear instruments. Original carpets and really good original leather. The speedo (tacho) shows 109,700 kilometers and after 25+ years of handling these, everything we see would support that the low km is correct. The maintenance book and records are not with the car, although that isn’t so unusual for the Japanese with their desire for privacy. The engine has only recently (2,000 km ago) been rebuilt at a cost of £6,336 by a marque specialist in the UK to resolve leaks commonplace on these models at this age. The invoice is detailed and comes with the car, along with the UK MOT’s, our report and works we have carried out.  We are happy to share and discuss our own report which reveals some minor items that you can tackle as, if, or when you want. There’s nothing of great importance.  This is a 911 you can use and enjoy immediately.

Behind the wheel this 930 impresses. The performance is formidable, but most of all, it’s the engagement with the machine that is so addictive. The way it comes on boost (0.8 bar) and flies towards the horizon without effort in any gear. Show it a corner and it’s flatter and more stable than a standard 930. It has the benefit of the factory option (M220) limited slip differential, plus the suspension is original torsion bar with upgraded H&R coil over performance shock absorbers. There is factory air con (service recommended) and sunroof. Original tool roll, jack and spare wheel. There is nothing not to like.

We grade our classic Porsche and this one is a strong grade 3. That means perfect as a car to enjoy and drive with no major cosmetic or technical issues that we can see for the future. It is a car most would call immaculate and as a Grade 3, it is supplied with our own mechanical warranty. This late 930 4 speed scores strongly on condition, colour, interior, specification, kilometerage and recent engine build. This is one to keep, continue to enjoy and maintain. It will pay you back with life experiences and in all probability, benefit you financially.

This 930 is UK registered but we welcome enquiries from overseas. We are experienced with all export procedures. Many of our clients choose to fly in, drive home and then register in their own country. For customers travelling from afar, we offer a reservation contract; we provide a detailed, honest and accurate description, full inspection report, additional photos and video, allowing you to travel with confidence. If you find the car is not as described when you come to collect, your deposit is returned, guaranteed.
