This particular 930 Turbo Carrera Coupé was the very first example ordered new for the USA market and noted as such on theoriginal invoice. This was a “Special Order” vehicle with the order being placed by Mr. Ronald Marshall Resch of Los Angeles,California on August 27th, 1975 via Steve Taub Porsche Audi of Santa Monica, California. The order pre-dated actualproduction of the model which did not commence until September 1st, 1975. Actual delivery did not take place until February6th, 1976 due to the Special Order features and options which added to the vehicle's lengthy build time. The original orderand completion of the vehicle was recorded as follows:
"Special request, earliest possible completion and delivery of one Grand Prix White, Tan, Full Leather Interior, Turbo CarreraCoupé with larger "RSR" 15-inch diameter, 8-inch and 9-inch wide rims, with the following options:”
-Limited Slip Differential
-Sport Seats Left & Right
-1.5bhp Starter Motor
-Becker Mexico Cassette Stereo Radio
-Amplifier and Four-Speakers
-"8-Inch" Wide "15-inch" Diameter Front Wheels
-"9-Inch" Wide "15-inch" Diameter Rear Wheels
Despite being an extremely early ordered example, the “Special Order” and custom features saw 930.680.0074 beingcompleted as the 63rd of a total of just 520 first model year units completed. All were built from September of 1975 until Julyof 1976. Assembly of 0074 began in October of 1974 and was completed in November of 1974. The order for this Porsche wasprocessed by Volkswagen Porsche Audi of America Western Region in Culver City, California. Production and delivery delaysmeant that this vehicle was shipped in early January 1976 and that it did not arrive until early February of 1976.
Several weeks earlier in December of 1976, Ronald M. Resch applied for personalized California License Plates, "930." Theseplates were approved and released to him on January 8th, 1976 prior to actually taking delivery of the vehicle.
On arrival at the Port of Los Angeles, this vehicle was delivered by truck to Steve Taub Porsche Audi in Santa Monica onWednesday, February 4th and immediately cleaned, detailed and inspected for delivery the following Friday, the 6th ofFebruary to first owner, Ronald M. Resch. Mr. Resch originally agreed to pay $27,430 for his new Porsche in August of 1975.This was quickly revised to reflect a total cash price of $29,564.80. At the time of delivery with the odometer showing 60delivery miles, he was given a final invoice of $29,650.32 which was paid for by Mr. Resch with a bank check.
Mr. Resch's first order of business was to have customs sheep-skin seat and rear parcel tray covers made and fitted as well ascustom "930" logo floor mats in order to protect and preserve the original interior. Resch also had the horrid USA type"sealed-beam" lights replaced by his local Porsche dealer with correct European model "H4" units.
Over the next 25 years, this Porsche was treated as an automotive treasure and show car. He drove it less it less than 2,500miles each year. When not being driven, it was stored in-doors in a climate controlled and UV protected garage. In 1997 Mr.Resch finally agreed to part with his prized 930 Turbo Carrera to local Porsche dealers, the Grant Boys of Costa Mesa,California. The car was carefully stored and remained un-driven until being sold in 2001 with just over 60,000 original miles.It was purchased by another avid Porsche collector in Yorba Linda, California. The new owners likewise rarely drove their newPorsche and it was soon placed in storage by them in Corona, California and not driven again. It remained garaged andstored, untouched over the next decade until our purchase in March of 2015. After completing the purchase, this first yearCalifornia USA Turbo Carrera was sent to marque experts at Jakob’s Porsche in North Vancouver, Canada where the enginewas carefully removed and given a complete and thorough rebuild. The gearbox was inspected and serviced and all othermaintenance and safety checks were also completed and brought up to date. Brand new, no time Michelin TB5 tires were thenfitted to the original special order RSR 8 and 9 inch light alloy Fuch rims.
Today, 930.680.0074 has covered just shy of 64,000 miles since new. It is completely without rust or accident damage with100% of the original paint and bottom side undercoating intact and un-damaged. The interior is completely untouched asdelivered new having always been garaged with full UV protection and floor and seat covers since being purchased new. Alloriginal records, invoices, correspondences and receipts from the moment this car was ordered through to the present remainwith this vehicle as does all of the original delivery equipment including the following:
-Space Saver Spare Tire
-Spare tire compressor (Still in original packaging)
-First Aid/Travel Kit

-Maintenance manuals, pouch, books, warranty card etc...
-Original "blue/yellow" 1976 issued California Personalized plates "930"

All services and safety checks are completely current and up to date. The engine and gearbox have less than 20 break-in onlymiles and the tires are brand new with no running time on them.
