A Journey Through Time: The Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera (Type 930)

The Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera, part of the Type 930 generation, made its debut in the mid-1970s, introducing turbocharging to the 911 series for the first time. This innovation transformed the 911 into an exhilarating powerhouse, earning it the nickname "The Widowmaker." The 1976 model we have the privilege to host at our shop is a prime example of that era's engineering brilliance.

Notable Attributes: What Makes It Special

  1. Original Grand Prix White Paint: One of the most striking features of this 911 Turbo Carrera is its unaltered, original Grand Prix White paint. This pristine exterior stands as a testament to the incredibly low mileage this classic Porsche has endured over the years, laying dormant in a garage for a large chunk of its life.

  2. Turbocharged Power: The 911 Turbo Carrera was a game-changer in the sports car world. It featured a 3.0-liter, flat-six engine with a KKK turbocharger, producing 234 horsepower. In the 1970s, this was a remarkable figure, and the car's 0-60 mph time of 5.5 seconds was nothing short of astonishing.

  3. Collectible Rarity: Vintage Porsche models are revered in the automotive world, and this 1976 Turbo Carrera is no exception. Its rarity, combined with its well-preserved body condition, makes it a sought-after collectible.
