Porsche’s 911 Turbo, commonly known by its internal code “930”, is one of the most legendary sports cars of all time. The 930 propelled the 911 model range into supercar territory and quickly earned a reputation as both a giant killer and a serious handful for inexperienced drivers. Known officially as the 911 Turbo Carrera, the original 930 featured a completely reworked version of the 3.0L flat six, initially pushing out 260 horsepower and mated to a long-legged four speed gearbox. The four-speed was stronger than the five-speed, and the huge torque of the new engine meant the extra cog wasn’t needed. Since the 930 was essentially a homologation special to allow Porsche to race turbocharged cars in GT-class competition, the marketing team at Porsche hoped for a stripped out special in the spirit of the 2.7 RS, and a limited run of 500 units. Dealers dutifully pushed the cars as limited production models, creating a frenzy of demand. The demand was so strong in fact that a further 500 were added to the production and the Turbo’s future was assured. The formula for the original 930 Turbo spanned from 1975 through the 1993 964 3.6 Turbo.
