The 930 Turbo was Porsche’s top line production car throughout the duration of its production run. Instantly recognizable by the distinctive “Whale Tail” which helps vent more air to the engine for additional power and serving dual purpose as it assists in the generation of downforce for aerodynamic stability. The flared wheel wells accommodate the wide rear tires, this broad stance also provides further grip. The dry sump engine is a 200-cid six-cylinder with intercooler and turbocharger, coupled to a four-speed manual gearbox and producing approximately 300 horsepower. At the time of introduction, Car & Driver magazine road tested this model at 0-60 miles per hour in 4.9 seconds, with a top speed in the 165 mph range and impressive skid pad numbers, registering .81g. Braking is provided by four-wheel, ventilated disc brakes.
The magnificent one owner Porsche 930 Turbo featured here is finished in stunning all-black over gorgeous tan leather interior This phenomenal 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo has been retained by its original owner and has been a beloved member of his collection for the last 42 years. The Turbo was purchased new on July 31st, 1979 from the legendary Brumos Porsche Audi of Jacksonville, Florida, which was owned by the motorsport racing legend and Hall of fame driver, Peter Gregg. The car is wonderfully specified in black over tan with a host of options including an electric sunroof, a realignment which lowered the car to the European height, and the incredibly rare Fuhrmann Interior package which featured special leather seats containing four large cushions down the center. Porsche did not advertise an option code for the package. It had to be specially requested by the dealer; as a result, it is believed to be one of the rarest options fitted in a 930. The handful of cars to feature the Fuhrmann seats include Dr. Porsche’s personal 1975 930 Turbo, the 1976 London motor Show 930 Turbo, and Peter Gregg’s personal 1976 930 Turbo. This was a $1,850 option at the time – equivalent to $12,500 today. I have personally driven this car and its the only Furhmann interior I have come across and is the most comfortable seat in any Porsche.
This 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo 3.3 Coupe has been impeccably maintained from day one, having always been kept in a climate-controlled garage and received regular maintenance with oil changes every 2,000 miles or less. Accompanying this investment-grade 930 are its original owner’s manual service records, tool roll, original bill of sale, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and much, much more. We are proud to offer what we believe to be one of the rarest and best-preserved 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo 3.3 Coupe on the market today. For the most astute collector, investor, or enthusiast who demands nothing but the best.

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.
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.
