The 2022 auction scene in Monterey, California is currently shaping up to be a blockbuster movie hell. RM Sotheby’s has advertised its customers with some excellent shipments from Prancing Horse.
Not to be outdone, Mecum Auctions is also gearing up for the event by announcing its product line. One to look out for is this 1978 Porsche 930 Turbo.
VIN/Serial 9308700475 is said to be one of 233 built, which tells us collectors will keep an eye on this. Our readers already know that what makes this stand out the most among others in the category is the killed color line. This stealthy sports car features a glossy black paint job with a matching interior.
Mecum Auctions reveals that the odometer shows 29,485 miles. Furthermore, the current owner will also provide service records and related documentation. 1978 Porsche 930 Turbo was equipped with a 3.3-liter flat-six engine with a four-speed manual transmission. Those who don’t know how to drive a stick needn’t bother!
Besides the timeless silhouette, the lines of this classic car are further defined by the “Tea Tray” rear spoiler. Mecum Auctions also lists notable elements such as front fog lights and a sunroof. The 1978 Porsche 930 Turbo uses black Fuchs wheels with silver lips and ventilated disc brakes.
The dark textures of the cockpit give off a menacing vibe. Here you can find the Blaupunkt Honolulu CD50 radio, metal pedal covers and Porsche top gearshift knobs. Although this 1978 Porsche 930 Turbo will make headlines next month, it still holds up against high bidders from other auction houses. However, enthusiasts of the German brand will line up to buy this classic.
