The Porsche 930, or 911 Turbo, has an illustrious history as the top-of-the-line offering for the German automaker. First introduced in production form at the 1975 Paris Auto Show, the Porsche 930 would arrive to the American market in 1976 as the Turbo Carrera. Executives at Stuttgart were concerned about the ability to market and sell such an expensive sports car, as it was priced at $26,700. The next most expensive Porsche was the 911S Targa, which had a price tag of just $16,000. With a plan to produce just 400 examples to meet homologation requirements for racing, Porsche continued on with production. Much to their surprise, more than 23,000 Porsche Turbo examples would be manufactured between 1974 and the end of production in 1989. The 1980 Porsche 930 holds an interesting place in this timeline, as it represents the year that the model was pulled from the American and Japanese markets due to increasing emissions regulations. While “gray-market” cars (those that were privately imported and converted) are available, it is estimated that approximately 80 examples of the 1980 Porsche 930 (built in 1979) were shipped into the country prior to this change. Are you the owner of a U.S. version of the 1980 Porsche 930 or do you have a “gray-market” classic that has been converted to meet emissions requirement? Not sure? The Alex Manos team can help you.
