Porsche introduced the luxurious and outrageously fast 911 Turbo Carrera to the U.S. for its 1975 model year and took the enthusiast world by storm. Its huge fender flares, wide alloy wheels, race car-like “Whale-tail” spoiler, and brilliant performance set a new benchmark for sports cars. Turbos have topped the list of every Porschephile’s want list ever since. For 1989, Porsche renamed the Turbo with Option M505 the “930 S” and raised the base list price by $29,555 to $100,530. The 1989 model was the first offered with the newly designed G50/50 five-speed transmission, an improved and stronger gearbox. Gear ratios had beenaltered to provide better acceleration and drivability. There was a new hydraulic clutch borrowed from the Carrera, and the center of the rear torsion bar tube was modified to accept the new gearbox and clutch. To improve handling, the rear torsion bars increased to 27 mm, while the rear swaybar was reduced to 18 mm, and Bilstein gas-filled shocks and struts were employed.
This model was built in 1989 only, and slightly over 2000 examples were produced, mostly in wide body form. It also marked the 25th anniversary of the Porsche 911. When compared to the earliest 911 models, it is remarkable how unchanged the basic design remains nearly a quarter a century later! The secret lies with many small detail differences that allowed the styling to remain fresh.
Purchased by Coachwerks in March of 2019, the vehicle received routine maintenance along with replacing the hood struts and painting the wheel wells to bring it ready for sale. It is accompanied with the appropriate owners manual and vehicle literature that provides comprehensive documentation for the vehicle. This iconic Porsche is the perfect summer cruiser and is sure to please any enthusiast’s expectations.
