Welcome to Manhattan Motorcars, one of America's premier marketers of high-line and luxury automobiles on eBay Motors.You are bidding on a pristine 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo with just 10,114 miles.The lucky winner of this auction will have the opportunity to own this low mileage 1979 Porsche 930 Turbo.The paint is in excellent condition and it is apparent that this car was garaged and meticulously-maintained.With just 10,114 miles, this car is barely broken in.

Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, led to the formation of "Project 930"-- the legendary 911 Turbo. Production began in April 1975; the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0 litre RSR engine, in road trim a combination that delivered 260bhp for a top speed of 155mph. As impressive as this was, there was more to the Turbo than just top speed, it was also the best equipped 911 and amazingly flexible-- hence only four speeds in the gearbox-- being capable of racing from a standstill to 100mph in 14 seconds.

Borrowing the flared wheel arches and "tea tray" rear spoiler from the Carrera model, the Turbo made them renowned. Incorporating the most luxurious interior yet seen in a 911, the Turbo featured leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. The Turbo's engine was enlarged to 3.3 litres for 1979, gaining an intercooler in the process; power increased to 300bhp and the top speed of what was the fastest accelerating road car of its day went up to 160mph. More refined and offering better performance than its predecessor, the Turbo sold in the thousands, becoming the definitive sports care of its age.

This stunning car was used sparingly for the occasional weekend trip and always garaged. The highly original interior is commensurate with the extremely low mileage, and both body transmission and engine are in excellent order.
