1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera
This particular 930 Turbo Carrera was “Special Ordered” new in September of 1975 on behalf of a South Florida Porsche collector via Brumos Porsche. The order specified that the exterior be finished in the impossibly beautiful and ultra-complementary color “Ice-Green Metallic” with a contrasting full leather interior in the color of “Cinnamon.” The only other request was that the vehicle not be equipped with the standard “sunroof” feature, marking it as a rather unique example to say the least! The original owner sold the car in the early 1980s to a private collector in Pisgah Forrest, North Carolina where it quietly remained until just last year in a remarkably well cared for and fully preserved state.
Recently this early Turbo Carrera was carefully stripped to bare metal and given a proper and complete repaint in the correct original delivery “Ice-Green Metallic.” At the same time, an original “new-old-stock” complete leather interior in the original “Cinnamon” color was sourced via the Porsche Factory and carefully installed. Just last Fall, this first year USA Turbo Carrera was sent to marque experts at Jakob's Porsche in North Vancouver, Canada where at a cost in excess of $22,000 it was given a complete and thorough servicing and safety check-over. The gearbox was inspected and serviced and all other maintenance and safety checks were also completed and brought up to date. Brand new, no time Pirelli P6000 tires were then fitted to each of the light alloy Fuch rims.
