1987 Porsche 911 (930) Turbo
This 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo is a complete and original example of the car that was so powerful it earned the nickname “The Widowmaker”. This car features the larger-capacity rear-mount 3.3-litre turbocharged flat-six engine that sends 221kW/412Nm to the rear wheels. This car has a four-speed manual transmission and can sprint from zero to 100km/h in 5.4 seconds. It shows 58,409km on the odometer since new.
Porsche first developed the 911 Turbo as a homologation special in much the same way as the 1973 Carrera RS 2.7. Its output figures were much higher than the standard Carrera it was based on thanks to a single KKK turbocharger. In order to make the most of the extra power, Porsche revised the suspension tune, added larger brakes and used a stronger gearbox to help the 911 Turbo perform to its potential. Of course, it also equipped the stand-out “whale tail” rear wing. The 911 Turbo proved very fast, but was also very demanding to drive thanks to its short wheelbase and rear engine layout. The Turbo name has since become a core high-end model of the Porsche range.
Presenting with Pacific Blue paint on the outside and a black leather interior, this 911 Turbo also features a sunroof, climate control air conditioning and a velour-covered luggage compartment. It sits on a set of 16-inch body-coloured Fuchs wheels wrapped in a mix of Continental and Yokohama tyres – all of which show a good amount of tread remaining.
This car is a matching numbers example that was converted to right-hand drive in Sydney. Its current owner bought the car from Queensland in 2010, before which it had been owned by the same owner for a number of years. At the time, a thorough inspection report was completed for the current owner’s peace of mind. It passed with five stars, and subsequent maintenance and rectification work by the current owner ensures the car remains a stand-out example today.
Condition-wise, this 911 Turbo presents very well. The Pacific Blue paint still shines brightly and there are no nicks, marks or scratches to report. There are some gritty bits and pieces and some hairline scratches to the paintwork, but it could be brought up to show condition with ease. The car is detailed regularly regardless of use, and it is stored in a drive in/drive out pressurised container bubble. There is some paint flaking on the outers of the wheels, though there are no gutter scrapes to be seen.
The interior is in similarly excellent condition. The black leather seats have held up well with age and show no tears or marks, though there are some early signs of leather beginning to crack on the bolstering. All gauges function perfectly, as does the Sony head unit that replaces the original sound system. The original velour covering for the luggage compartment remains in place, hiding a spare wheel.
This car was last serviced in December 2020 by David Brennan at Nurburgring Mechanical who commented “rarely do you see a 911 Turbo as mechanically clean as this car”. Nothing of concern was raised at the recent service. It has been well taken care of with everything replaced or maintained as needed.
All documentation and retained paperwork will be supplied with the sale, as will the spare wheel that sits under the bonnet.
