By the mid-1970s, the era of malaise in automotive performance was setting in. 0-60 and quarter mile times were a shadow of what they had been just five years before. Only Porsche seemed to buck this trend using an exhaust driven turbocharger to achieve stunning results. The 3.3-liter version of the 911 Turbo Carrera (known as the 930) could do 0-60 in about 4.9 seconds at a time when a new Ferrari or Corvette were hard pressed to do the same thing in less than 8.0 seconds. Handling could be very tricky because the turbo was very much an “on” or “off” thing. Boost coming on suddenly in the middle of a corner was the undoing of many 930 drivers. Flared fenders and a whale tail rear spoiler told other drivers to move out of the left lane.
This European example went directly to the United States to the first owner, the NFL player Louis Breeden. This matching numbers example came to the Czech Republic in 2017 and it has a Czech historic registration. The car has some special options like 3-piece BBS LM wheels, a stainless steel B&B exhaust.
This car has only two previous owners, a 3" file with a complete service documentation and history (total approx. $50.000 in invoices)! It comes also with a new clutch, new brakes and new tires (Michelin Sport Cup).
