Description/extras: Much of the Porsche 911's development had resulted from the factory's racing program, and it was the period Group 4 homologation rules, which required 400 road cars to be built, that spurred the development of 'Project 930' - the legendary 911 Turbo. In production from April 1975, the Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to the 3.0 litre Carrera RSR engine, in road trim a combination that delivered 260bhp for a top speed of 155mph. In 1978 the Turbo's engine was enlarged to 3.3 litres, gaining an intercooler in the process; power increased to 300bhp and the top speed, of what was the fastest accelerating road car of its day, went up to 160mph. But the Turbo wasn't just about top speed, it was also the best equipped 911 and amazingly flexible, hence only four speeds in the gearbox, being capable of racing from a standstill to 100mph in 14 seconds! The Turbo's characteristic flared wheel arches and 'tea tray' rear spoiler had already been seen on the Carrera model while the interior was the most luxurious yet seen in a 911, featuring leather upholstery, air conditioning and electric windows. More refined than hitherto, yet retaining its high performance edge, the Porsche 911 Turbo sold in the thousands, becoming the definitive sports car of its age.

On offer is this extremely rare Australian delivered 930 which was personally for Alan Hamilton of Hamilton Porsche.

Specifically ordered as a 'sunroof delete '40% Premium to acquire; which was originally ordered for Australian Motor Racing identity Rusty French.

This vehicle was part of Rusty's private collection for 9 years.

The Kremer conversion came later when owned by Ian Ross who has an incredibly long history with the Porsche brand.

The current owner has had the car for 13 years and in this time has had full engine and gearbox reconditioned. Car has covered approximately only 5000km on new rebuild.
