LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1977 Porsche Turbo
In recent years, Porsche’s first-generation Type 930 Turbos (1975–1977) have become much sought-after by collectors. Much lighter and more visceral than their modern counterparts, these Turbo Carreras (as they were first dubbed in the United States) were genuinely exciting automobiles. Wide fender flares and a large rear deck spoiler announced that the Turbo Carrera was no ordinary 911. The Turbo’s performance matched its looks; the turbocharged three-liter air-cooled engine delivered its power through a strengthened four-speed manual gearbox, and many were equipped with an optional limited-slip differential. These early Type 930s could accelerate to 60 mph in six seconds and top 155 mph.
There would be only 727 North American-specification Turbos built and sold for this model year. Its factory-issued Certificate of Authenticity notes that this stunning example left the factory wearing Minerva Blue (W9) paint with a Beige/Tan leather interior. It was luxuriously equipped for the United States market including tinted glass, electric windows, air conditioning, power-adjustable and heated outside mirrors, high-pressure headlight washers, and a rear window wiper. Additional options included a limited-slip differential, electric sunroof, and Pirelli high-performance tires.
Today, this magnificent 1977 Turbo Carrera shows just 88,177 original miles. Its original Minerva Blue paint is offset by black gravel guard appliqués and wide 16-inch Fuchs light-alloy wheels with painted center caps. The Beige/Tan is in fantastic original condition showing minimal wear for its age. It is supplied with tool roll, jack, spare tire, air compressor, and factory Owner’s Manual.
The original 911 Turbo is an icon of Porsche ingenuity and design, and it has truly stood the test of time, as it is considered by many to be one of the most important Porsche models ever produced. This very nice example would make a great addition to any Porsche collection.
