Features

1977 USA model Porsche 3.0 Liter 930 Turbo s/n 00142, a first generation, numbers-matching, pride-of-ownership 930 3.0 Turbo. S/n 00142 was nicely optioned from new with Limited Slip differential, exterior right side mirror, Sport seats, rear model designation delete and an electric Sunroof and was finished from new in special order Gazelle Metallic paint to Sample (99) with Dark Brown Leather (93) upholstery. Completed in September of 1976 as a non-catalyst, US Equipment model. This collectable 930 Turbo has been a California car since new, has just under 52,000 original miles and was with its second owner for the last thirty-five years. The original Bill of Sale and Transfer of Ownership paperwork are included in a dossier of servicing records and registration slips collected over the years. Complete with its date-coded spare; tools and tool roll; jack; owner’s manual; Blaupunkt CR Cassette and console deck stack; its factory production sticker in the doorjamb as well as its other factory decals; records and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. 930 Turbo s/n 00142 is still on a California Pink-Slip.

930 Turbo s/n 00142 is an outstanding example of the very first Turbo and is fitted with its correct, numbers-matching engine which has just received a complete engine-and-transmission-out service only three months ago. The engine and transmission were inspected and the engine internals were de-carbonized. New valve cover and exhaust gaskets; a new oil thermostat; new case bolt O-rings, an oil pressure switch and a front crankcase seal were fitted. The starter motor was rebuilt. An engine sump plate; spark plugs; A/C and alternator belts; air and oil filters; engine and gearbox oil; internal ignition distributor cover; ignition coil cover; fuel filter; fuel accumulator; sound pad; engine mount washer and oil cap were installed. The fuel injectors were cleaned and tested. The distributor was serviced and the timing was reset. The rocker arm shaft was tightened. The wiring harness was checked and minor repairs done. The cylinder head stud torque settings were checked. The alternator was bench-tested. The clutch assembly was inspected and cleaned, a new pilot bearing, clutch fork shaft seal and shift sleeve bearing were installed. The rear axle spacer sleeves and seals; the front and rear wheel bearings; the front and rear rotors and pads and brake fluid were all replaced or serviced and the brake system was flushed and bled. The throw out bearing was serviced and the gas cap; the sway bar bushings; the steering column bearing bushing and the deck lid shock were all replaced.

The paint appears to be both all original and in excellent condition. The body is straight with excellent panel fit and operation and the trim is in good shape. The dark brown leather cabin remains incredibly clean, original and well preserved down to the seats, carpeting, trim, Blaupunkt CR Cassette and console deck stack. The original paint color is very beautiful, with just a hint of copper, gold and green to it. The paint is in almost perfect shape with no blemishes save for a few minor stone chips to the front. The remainder of the paintwork has no fading, is unmarked and is perfectly smooth to the touch. Even the Fuchs wheels are unmarked and even. The interior has only the slightest signs of wear to the bolsters on the driver’s seat. The front trunk carpets and everything else, from the brown rear mats with “Porsche” script to the leather covered dashboard is spotless, with slight leather shrinkage on the dash top. 930 Turbo s/n 00142 has just been detailed. The undercarriage and suspension and the wheels and wheel wells were cleaned, painted as needed and detailed. The windshield cowl; spoiler; rear bumper and engine compartment were touched up or painted as needed. A new headliner and hood pad were installed. The complete exterior and interior were highly detailed. The A/C blows cold, the windows and door locks all work correctly making for an overall driving experience that reinforces why these cars are legendary: solid, balanced, and above all, communicative. This is a great opportunity to acquire a just-serviced and inspected 3.0 Liter 930 Turbo in great colors, and with great options. Has 51,955 miles, just serviced, ready to go, needs nothing and priced right.
