The Porsche 930 emerged in 1975 as the next step forward in Porsche's renowned 911 model, integrating turbocharging technology for the first time in the company's production car lineup. Boasting a robust 3.0-liter flat-six engine, the 930 Turbo was capable of delivering 260 horsepower, a significant leap from its naturally aspirated counterparts. The car's distinct design featured widened rear wheel arches and a large rear spoiler, which earned it the now well-known 'whale tail' nickname. This design enhanced the vehicle's aerodynamics and helped to cool the engine, enclosing a horizontally situated radiator and an intercooler in later models. Porsche equipped the 930 with a four-speed manual transmission and implemented larger four-wheel disc brakes to handle the increased power, ensuring performance and safety.

For the 1979 model year, the Porsche 930 Turbo underwent a crucial upgrade by introducing a larger 3.3-liter engine, further elevating its performance. This improved model generated a substantial 300 horsepower, courtesy of enhanced displacement and an intercooler—boosting power with increased air density entering the engine. The 1979 930 also featured a refined 'whale tail' spoiler, which was larger and more integrated into the bodywork, improving aesthetics and functionality. Porsche's attention to detail extended to suspension and braking systems, upgraded to match the car's heightened performance capability. 

The 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo offered here is finished in Guards Red over a black leather interior and was purchased by the current owner for their personal collection in April 2021. A highly optioned example, the car features front and rear spoilers, fog lights, headlamp washers, a rear window wiper, an electric sunroof, and power windows. Factory air conditioning adds to the cabin's rare spec, also equipped with a Porsche-branded Blaupunkt cassette stereo.

Serviced under current ownership at Porsche of Greensboro in June 2023, this 930 Turbo shows an odometer reading of just over 36k miles.
