Gaswerks Garage is pleased to present our 1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera. Our matching numbers 1977 Porsche Turbo Carrera is the first generation of the iconic Porsche Turbo. This 1977 Porsche Turbo Carrera (930) was originally owned by the owner of the Coberly Ford Dealership in Los Angeles, California. It was purchased in late 1977, driven until 1982 and then parked at the now closed Coberly Ford lot and stored. It was later unearthed from the closed lot in 2005.
Our 930 Turbo Carrera is an absolute blast to drive. It handles wonderfully, the engine revs freely, the shifts are pure butter, and when the boost comes in, it’s nothing but pure theatre! If you are looking for a solid 930 driver with nice patina that looks amazing, this is the car for you. It has a clean California title and the registration has the car as a 1978 due to being purchased in late 1977 (VIN clearly denotes it is a first generation model). It has been in California all its life.
The motor is a true masterpiece. The car is NUMBERS MATCHING in both engine and transmission to the COA. It revs very smoothly up to higher RPMs and the turbo has the classic lag then KICK. The car idles smoothly without any CIS fuel issues you may see in higher mileage or less maintained cars. This vehicle has been fully inspected and serviced by our Gaswerks Garage technicians.
This car has patina. The black paint does shine and photograph well, but there are some areas that are damaged due to the California sun and being stored under a car cover for so many years. The sections that show signs of wear are the roof, fenders, and doors. There is no rust on the car and the undercarriage of the car looks like you could eat off it. The rear fenders retain the original weld marks on the underside for the larger fenders. This shows that the fenders are original to the car. All the suspension components have clean factory plating and the wheel wells are extremely clean.
The interior of the car is extremely clean. The dash and the rare factory sport seats have minimal wear to them. It is barely what would be expected from a 40 year old car. Everything in the interior is original, including floor mats, gauges, radio, etc. The car has a rare factory Blaupunkt Bamberg radio with a microphone and the record function which is supposedly the most expensive radio money could buy in 1977. Rear seats are pristine, and the carpet kit is tidy. Contact Gaswerks Garage for more info!
