1976 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0

We often talk about the ‘college wall poster car’ to describe what makes a certain model attractive to a collector of a certain age and here we have ample proof. For this Porsche 3.0 Turbo was the childhood dream of the last owner which finally became reality following business success.

The highly respected Porsche expert Richard Tuthill, already known to this collector was chosen as the man to deliver on the dream and following an exhaustive search he finally found the right car and hence the project began. The car found, chassis 9306700598 was originally finished in black and delivered new in May 1976 by Porsche in Munich to a clearly flamboyant first owner, featuring as it did gold wheels, decals and a yellow interior! Other important options retained today included a limited slip differential and air conditioning. Importantly, when found, the car was matching numbers and was very original albeit requiring restoration with no apparent accident damage or modification, unlike many others.

A full restoration then commenced beginning with a complete strip down to body shell followed by the rebuilding or replacement of all components to the highest standards. 
Over 1000 hours and many thousands of pounds were involved in this work as documented and detailed in extensive invoicing and illustrated in many photographs on file. Suffice it to say the car is now offered at a price level far below that of the cost of purchase and restoration.

There is no doubt that the childhood dream has been delivered, the car presents beautifully with flawless bodywork and amazing detail. It has seen virtually no use since completion and hence the next fortunate custodian can run the car in just as he might have done when collecting it new back in the day.

A rare and special enigmatic Turbo with a great story, specification and rebuilt to the highest standards.
