Ferdinand Porsche once said I couldn't find the sports car of my dreams so I decided to build it With that being said we are pleased to be able to offer this 1978 Porsche 930 Turbo Coupe with under 35k documented miles and restored to it's original factory specs! The drive train has been completely serviced and resealed by one of only a handful of Porsche's Factory Authorized Classics Dealerships in the U.S.A. Sure to please the most discriminating Porschephile this truly iconic super car of the 70's boasts a long time (28 yr) Arizona family ownership and a recent no expense spared refreshment! Fresh Full Paint in the original Factory color of Minerva Blue over a brand new Cork interior with Factory Sport Seats in Full Leather,​ Original 4 Speed Manual transmission and it is in unbelievable condition inside and out!! This 78 930 Turbo stands tall and is an Absolute testament to it's enthusiast ownership! Porsche made its first and most significant changes to the 930 for 1978 model year,​ enlarging the engine bore by 2 mm to a total displacement of 3,​299 cc (3.3 L) and adding an air-to-air inter-cooler. By cooling the pressurized air charge,​ the inter-cooler helped increase power to 300 PS (221 kW; 296 hp) at 5,​500 rpm and 412 Nm (304 lbft) of torque at 4,​000 rpm (DIN); the rear 'whale tail' spoiler was re-profiled and raised slightly to make room for the inter-cooler and the spoiler was now called the 'tea tray' spoiler. The suspension benefited from new anti-roll bars,​ use of a firmer shock absorber and larger diameter rear torsion bars. Porsche also upgraded the brakes to units similar to those used on the 917 race car. While the increase in displacement and addition of an inter-cooler increased power output and torque,​ these changes also increased the weight of the vehicle,​ especially the engine,​ which contributed to a substantial change in the handling and character of the car compared to the earlier 3.0-litre models.
