Delivered new to Edmonton, Alberta and having just three owners since 1979, this 930 Turbo, in the highly desirable light blue metallic scheme, is one of the best driving cars of its day. It has had extensive mechanical work in the past few years including a 20,000 USD motor rebuild and tuning by Don Clark down in California. Most recently it was serviced at the local Porsche dealers where the 2nd and 3rd gear synchros were replaced. The car has patina from its years of being enjoyed on the road. The body is dry and in very good condition. Leather is still in great shape. This is the ultimate drivers 930 Turbo offered at significantly less than the identical specification 300,000 USD one sold at RM Sotheby’s auction recently. Blue chip collector Porsche that can be used all season long. This is one of only 1200 Turbos imported North America in 1979. Paying over sticker for a Turbo was common, as 1979 was supposed to be the last year that the Turbo would be brought into the US. Also the rear-engine 911 was rumoured to be on its way out with the introduction of the 928 and other front-engine Porsches. Buyers and dealers alike were speculating that the car would double in value within a few years. Base-price was close to 50,000 CAD and people would pay up-to 25% over sticker to get their hands on a “final year” 930 Turbo. In today’s money that amount is getting close to 225,000 CAD.
