The 1976 production year brought the 930 Turbo to North America for the first time. Using developments Porsche had been perfecting for its racing cars, the 930 was the quickest, quietest, and fanciest high-performance street car Porsche had ever offered. It was also the first standard production Porsche to offer a turbo-charged system. Called “a dream car” by the press, it offered spectacular performance for a street car in the early 80s-0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds while pumping out 300 hp. The suspension and running gear were modified to handle this additional turbo power, while wider tires helped keep the car on the road. Finally, interior appointments on the 930 Turbo were luxurious compared to other model’s standard equipment, which helped make this wild ride all the more comfortable.
The first two years of the 930, (’76-’77) were 3.0 liter cars with 245 snappy horses in USA trim. In 1978 major improvements included increased size to 3.3 liters, an intercooler to keep the intake air colder, and bigger brakes. Horsepower from 1978 to 1989 was 282 hp for the USA -Canada models. Other than the bigger whale tail in 1978 to house the intercooler, the body remained unchanged through 1989. All cars were 4-speeds until 1989, when a 5-speed was finally made available. Turbos were not officially imported into the USA from 1980 to 1985, Canada did however get them officially.
