1988 Porsche 930 Turbo with 850 HP

There are more and more restored Porsche cars in the public eye, and one of the latest is the 1988 Porsche 930 Turbo. It is a turbocharged variant of the 911 model that was manufactured between 1975 and 1989, when Porsche discontinued the production of this car. The car was modified and restored by the Galpin company in cooperation with the Porsche distributor from Santa Clarita.

After the car was damaged by fire, but the team did not want to leave it to decay. So they did everything to save the car. First, the car was completely disassembled and restored. It was then fitted with an X83 Flachbau body kit paired with Rubystar paint. “Our goal with this Slantnose was to bring it back to the original generation while incorporating our own unique Galpinized design,” said Galpin boss Beau Boeckmann. In order to give a bit of racing spirit, a racing stripe has been added. The suspension has been upgraded with components taken from the 997 GT3 RS, and the car is fitted with HRE rims with Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

Inside, the seats are upholstered in turquoise with black and white inserts. The steering wheel and dashboard are also covered in turquoise, with matching carpets. There is also a Blaupunkt sound system.

When it comes to the powertrain, the Porsche 930 Turbo is powered by a turbocharged 3.5L flat-six engine with 850 hp (625 kW). As a reminder, the original 1988 model is powered by a 3.3L flat-six engine with 282 hp (207 kW) @ 5500 rpm and 289 lb-ft (392 Nm) of torque.

We know that there are many car enthusiasts who do not support modifying cars, especially when it comes to some of the legendary models, but this one might change the minds of some of them.
