• Fully restored by Porsche Leeds in 2014
• WINNER of the Porsche mechanical Restoration award and Porsche Cars GB Employee’s Choice
Supplied new to JCT600 in 1981, this now stunning example of the iconic 930 Turbo is offered in the very best colour combination of Guards Red with black leather trim. It had been left in a garage since 1999 when, spurred on by the Porsche competition, Porsche Leeds liberated the car and chose it to be their competition entrant... well if you're going to restore a Porsche why not pick one of the most iconic cars the German marque has ever produced, of course!
Documented by a photographic build, the car was completely stripped and rebuilt by Porsche technicians; the body was taken back to bare metal and using only official Porsche panels restored by JCT600 body clinic as a nod to the original supplying dealer. The mechanical restoration was more challenging as the team wanted to retain, where possible, any original parts, therefore as many parts as possible were reconditioned and, where not practical or possible, replaced with all new Porsche parts. The same philosophy was adhered to with the remainder of the car, not wishing to lose all originality, where possible parts were reconditioned or restored but where this was not possible they were replaced with official Porsche parts.
The car today is stunning and like new, as you would expect, but now carries the significant provenance of perhaps the best restoration you could covet by the manufacturer themselves. Although displaying the original mileage of 104,223, the truth to the mileage is nearer 1,000 miles since it was fully restored. The history file accompanying the car is comprehensive and almost as impressive as the restoration, there are no less than three magazine mentions of the successful 930 at the Porsche competition, a full seven page feature in Classic Cars magazine, and this is coupled to the original stamped service booklet and book pack. Within the leather bound ring binder is the Heritage Certificate, the original marketing programme for the Porsche Classic Competition, countless invoices showing the parts supplied by Porsche which total some £30,000, and invoices for any services that they had to outsource. The car has recently had a full body detail and passed its most recent MoT test certificate with no advisories, which is not surprising. While a restoration by Aston Martin or Jaguar on their models is staggeringly expensive, this is the opportunity to purchase a piece of Porsche history. In fabulous condition and a multiple award winning car.
From its launch late in 2004, the 997 was at last one of the most usable and practical cars Porsche has built.
