Porsche 911 930 turbo
Above 4500 RPM it gets’s a little louder so you can’t hear the passenger scream. – Porsche 930.
A Porsche that puts all your senses on edge; The Porsche 930 Turbo. Known among enthusiasts as the Widow maker. Why? Because this ‘neunelfer’ has a big turbo in addition to the excellent 3.3 liter boxer engine. The 911S was already known for its dual personality. You could tour with it wonderfully, but when you called on the boxer for its power, you had to take serious care with all the weight mainly in the back. These characteristics were enhanced with the big turbo in the 930.
The name Widowmaker should set the senses on edge, but “really dangerous” the car is not. Finally, Ferdinand Porsche gave the very first 930 Turbo to his daughter, Louise Piech. Beyond Porsche’s love of the 930 Turbo, even artists have described the driving experience in their songs. Think of KK Downing who wrote the song Turbo-lover or Judas Priest with his album Turbo. To recognition of its potentials, this hot-tempered 911 is not modest. Perhaps the 911-Turbo line is a bit like an average artist’s life. It started (with the 930) very wildly, many a person deeply impressed and sometimes lying backwards in the hedge. Today, after a lot of guidance, structure and balance, they are better, but less eccentric and the experience is “braver.
At the time, the 930 Turbo was a direct competitor to the Lamborghini Countach and Ferrari 356 GT4 BB. With its sprint from 0-100 in 4.8 seconds, even to this day, it is quite a fast car. After announcing production, Porsche was overwhelmed with the number of responses and reservations. The planned production number of “first editions” of 500 was immediately doubled to the 1,000 mark.
