Vehicle Description

1979 Porsche 911 Turbo

  • Factory Billboard Turbo Graphics

  • This is an extremely original car!

Now in its fourth year of production, the 911 Turbo, referred to as the “Autobahn Projectile” ceased production for the US market at the end of 1979, and from 1980 through 1985 only European or “Grey Market” Porsches were imported into the US through privateers. Early in 1979 is was apparent that the demand was greater than the supply, and the fact that “Euro” cars had 300hp as opposed to the 260hp US version made the popular. These cars had to be federalized to meet all US standards, safety and emissions. Turbo’s remained pretty much unchanged since the 1978 model year, and came stock fairly well optioned. This one also has the optional sunroof and rear window wiper. It still wears its original factory “Guards Red” paint, “Turbo” graphics, and looks showroom new. The black leather interior is completely original and well preserved. Mechanically she has received a thorough inspection and extensive service to factory specs. Standing here in all her majestic beauty and in full Euro trim, this “Arrest Me Red” 930 is ready for some high velocity driving, and should truly live up to its nickname. Original books & tool kit included.
