1989 Porsche 930 Turbo “Flachbau”
This car was ordered and built in 1989 under the Porsche “Sonderwunchprogramm” (Special Wishes Programme) The car was originally destined for the Nth American market, but due to a cancelled order was sent to the UK and sold new on 28th July 1989, and it is believed that it was converted to RHD at this point.
Factory options include 505 (slant nose) sunroof, short shift gearbox, 40% locking LSD, leather seats, CD player with additional amplifier. The stunning Guards Red exterior is complemented with a black interior.
Being a later car it is fitted with the much more desirable and unbreakable G50 close ratio 5 speed gearbox, dramatically reducing the laggy gearchanges experienced from the earlier wider spaced 4 speed box.
The service history shows stamps in the original service book coming from JCT 600 in 1992 at 1,653 miles. JCT 600 in 1997 at 4,080 miles. JCT 600 in 2010 at 10,790 miles, Porsche specialist Gareth Jones in 2015 at 11,977 miles and the last carried out by Porsche Centre Cardiff in November 2016 at 12607 miles. The current odometer reading is showing just 13,193 miles and the condition of the car must be seen to be believed.
The paintwork looks to be original and the panel fit and shut lines are excellent. The interior is also in superb order and there is very little wear to the seats and bolsters. The engine bay is very tidy and the front compartment presents well.
On a road test with High Performance Classics the car pulled hard through all gears, the steering felt light and sharp, the gearbox felt good, as did the brakes and clutch.
