The Porsche 911 (930) Turbo Cabriolet is the only 'normal production' Porsche cabriolet to be equipped with the air-cooled turbo engine. Moreover, only approximately 100 were produced and just 50 right-hand drive examples were built. Built with the 3.3 litre air-cooled turbo engine and later G50 5-speed gearbox, the car generates over 330 bhp and has a 0-60 time of approximately 5 seconds.
Sourced from a private collection in Berkshire, this beautifully presented example in black with ivory leather interior has just had a service with Porsche UK, Reading including their 111 point vehicle inspection. Porsche Cars have provided written confirmation that this car was originally a very well spec'd Porsche Cars BG Ltd display car and subsequently sold by AFN Chelsea on the Brompton Road, London SW6.
Supplied with a fantastic history file including documented service history and MoT test certificates to warrant the mileage, this Porsche has been very well cared for. In 2005, a claim was made due to damage to the off side front wing; however, the current owner sought to have this work independently inspected in accordance with The Motor Insurance Repair Research Centre by AutoLign inspections of Mawsley resulting in the car being removed from the HPI condition alert register. The car is now offered with an MoT test certificate valid until December 2016 and we are informed that, importantly, everything is working exactly as it should.
With such low miles, and presented in truly excellent condition in the finest colour combination, this Porsche surely represents outstanding value in today's market place.
