The 2022 Monterey, California auction scene is now shaping up to be one hell of a blockbuster. RM Sotheby’s is already hyping up its clients with several stellar lots from the Prancing Horse.
Not to be outdone, Mecum Auctions is likewise gearing up for the event by unveiling its lineup. One to watch out for is this 1978 Porsche 930 Turbo.
VIN/Serial 9308700475 is reportedly one of only 233 built, which tells us collectors will have their eyes on this. Our readers already know that what made this stand out the most among others in the catalog is the murdered colorway. This stealthy sports car flaunts a glossy black paint scheme with color-matching interiors.
Mecum Auctions reveal that the odometer shows 29,485 miles. Furthermore, the current owner will also supply relevant documentation and service records. The 1978 Porsche 930 Turbo is packing a 3.3-liter flat-six mill with a four-speed manual transmission. Those who don’t know how to drive a stick need not bother!
Aside from the timeless silhouette, this vintage vehicle’s outline is further defined by the “Tea Tray” rear spoiler. Mecum Auctions likewise lists notable elements like the front fog lights and a powered sunroof. The 1978 Porsche 930 Turbo rides on a set of black Fuchs wheels with silver lips and vented disc brakes.
The dark motif of the cockpit oozes a menacing vibe. Here you can find a Blaupunkt Honolulu CD50 radio, metal pedal covers, and a Porsche crest shift knob. Although this 1978 Porsche 930 Turbo will make a splash next month, it’s up against heavy-hitters from other auction houses. Nevertheless, enthusiasts of the German marque will line up for this classic.
