The iconic Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera, the German automaker’s first true production supercar, was introduced in 1974 and began production in 1975, though it wasn’t until 1976 for the US market to receive their first shipments. Although it is immediately identifiable as a 911, the Type 930, as it was internally designated, features a 3.0-liter flat-six boasting a single KKK turbocharger with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection. Output was, at 245 horsepower for US-market cars (260 horsepower elsewhere), immense for the period, especially considering its weight of less than 2,700 pounds. At the hands of a talented driver, the 930 can sprint to 60 mph in just over five seconds and easily top 150 mph.
As such, the Turbo name quickly became synonymous with high performance, albeit performance that demanded the talents of an experienced driver: This is a wickedly fast car that can easily punish those who do not approach it with skill and respect. Of course, this only added to its appeal and is still renowned for its driving dynamics today.
Although the 930 served as the homologation basis for Porsche’s fearsome 934 racers, it was no stripped-down track weapon. Turbos were luxuriously equipped, with a long list of standard equipment including air-conditioning, full leather, a rear wiper, headlamp washers, and a stereo. Further options, including a power sunroof, were offered as well.
In 1978, Porsche updated the model with a larger 3.3-liter engine with a stated US-market output of 253 horsepower, an air-to-air intercooler, revised suspension, and new brakes. With the US emissions restrictions tightening once again in 1980, 1979 became the last model year that the Porsche 930 was specified for the American market for some time to come
The magnificent 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo Coupe featured here is finished in stunning Grand Prix White over a classic Beige leather interior. This investment-grade 930 Turbo was built in October 1979, making it one of the very last to be brought into the US. Fitted with nearly every available option, including the highly desired electric sunroof sports seats, this final-year example for the original US-market run of the Type 930 Turbo is undoubtedly amongst the most coveted of Porsches. Because of this, I personally believe the investment potential of this iconic model will grow beyond your imagination. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the very best 930 911 Turbos on the market today. For the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who aspires to own one of the best!

Finance rates as low as 8.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months

Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer.

All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
