OVERVIEW

We love seeing old friends come back! We sold this car 2 years ago in 2015 with to the current owner in Europe. It has been lovingly stored and maintained in his Porsche collection, and it is now available again for sale. It currently shows 111K miles on the chassis (just 1K more than 2015). Please note this car is currently located in The Netherlands and we are happy to arrange PPI and worldwide shipment logistics as needed.

The original listing details and pictures from the 2015 sale are located HERE for your review.

++++++++++++

The car presented here is a 1985 Porsche 911 Turbo, more commonly known as the 930 model designation. Being a 1985 model, this car was originally imported from Europe in December 1985, and spent the first 15 years of its life in Kansas, Texas, and Montana with three owners. After enjoying the big open roads throughout those beautiful states and accumulating 90K miles, the car then migrated to Washington State in 2000 where it was owned by a local enthusiast that added just another 20K miles over the last 15 years.

The car underwent a full bare metal restoration in 2011 to the state you see presented here, and has only covered a handful of miles since. The original engine was removed during this restoration process and put on the shelf. A new engine was sourced with just 40K miles on it, and during a recent motor out service and reseal, everything was found to be in proper order with solid compression and leak down numbers.

In 2015, the car was sold to a Porsche collector in Amsterdam, where it resides currently. Accumulating approximately 1000 miles since this 2015 purchase, the car has been lovingly maintained and cosmetic details further sorted to an exceptional level.

The Porsche Turbo cars are being sought for their incredible motorsport pedigree, and raw visceral driving experience. This car is ready to be enjoyed now at your local car show, or driving tour – it needs nothing. It also includes all original parts (engine block, A/C components, etc.) for the future if it is ever desired to return the car to stock configuration.
