Boulder, Montana, United States
More details at: firstname.lastname@example.org .
Up for sale is a beautiful 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo (a.k.a. 930 Turbo).
The interior is stock and well-kept, with little wear-and-tear for its age. The Guards' Red exterior paint
is in excellent condition with only minor flaws from ordinary road use. The car has been garage-kept and tended in
a heated garage. It comes with OEM Fuchs wheels in the original black with machined rims.
The engine has been completely restored by Rothsport, Inc., including a full tear-down and rebuild. Approximate
engine output is 325 horsepower. The stock 4-speed Porsche gearbox was retained. The car's suspension was
completely rebuilt and replaced for competition use, including a 1-inch drop and high-performance shock absorbers
and springs. The exhaust has been replaced by a custom titanium dual-outlet system by B&B Exhaust.
The 930 Turbo was a tour-de-force when it was released, and the Turbo name has consistently been applied only to
the highest-performing variants of the 911 ever since. While later models eventually softened and became more akin
to grand tourers, the original 930 was a knife-edged competition machine -- lightweight, powerful, and terrifyingly
fast. Armed with engine, suspension, and braking technology from Porsche's most competitive and world-beating
prototype race cars, the 930 set the standard for sports cars around the world.
The 911 of the late 1980s represents a sort of purity of purpose for the sporting car enthusiast, a perfect balance
of raw prowess and refinement, and as such is extremely desirable. This 911 Turbo is the ultimate example of the
breed, an incredible specimen of a car that is sure to only become more valuable as they become more rare over

Luciano Rupolo is an absolutely fascinating gentleman. He was born in France but spent nearly his entire life in Italy as an auto mechanic running his own shop. His grandfather and father instilled a love of sports cars in him that he carried on by historic racing in Italy for decades. He saw his life-long automotive passion repaid when he found and restored the car that might have been the first Porsche registered for the road.
You can spot in his garage a split-window Corvette, Ferrari 250 GTE and other exotics, but Rupolo's most interesting automotive story concerns his Iso Grifo Competizione (pictured above). The sports coupe was found in the Canary Islands as little more than a shell, but Rupolo got help from a prestigious source for its restoration. The result is a motoring masterpiece.
Rupolo is a fantastic storyteller with a captivating, tale to tell. Settle in, scroll down and watch the bittersweet documentary about his life with one of the first Porsches.
The tale of Nick Murray and his lemon Porsche 911 appears to have come to a satisfactory end. As noted in the original story about Murray, he and Porsche Cars North America met and came to a resolution. However, we didn't know exactly what that meant, until now.
Murray has created a new video explaining that PCNA offered to buy back the car at full price or give him an exact replacement for it. This was exactly what he was asking for. Murray remains pro-Porsche in the new video. "I am definitely considering reordering a Porsche 911," he says.
Porsche also posted a message on its Facebook page that clarified the situation. "We at Porsche have always sought excellence in all that we do. We know you expect it of us. And when we don't meet that standard, we make every effort to improve," said a portion of the note.
The Porsche 928 was perhaps the consummate European GT of its day. With a powerful front-mounted V8 engine that grew in displacement as the model years went on, it was capable of eating up the miles at triple-digit speeds in great comfort for occupants. It was also an unusual beauty, with its sharp front and curved rear featuring innovative integrated bumpers.
Currently for auction on eBay Motors is one of the rarest 928s you're likely to find, in a handsome combination of Guards Red paint and tan leather interior, though we wouldn't mind a less-showy finish to the factory wheels. According to the seller, this car is one of eight 928 convertibles by Carelli Design, a firm that's still in business.
The auction claims that these cars were made in 1981 as a feasibility study between Carelli and Porsche for a possible production 928 convertible. The seller says he worked at the dealership where the car is said to have been originally sold $103,000. To remove the roof and hide the convertible top, there were significant changes made to the body and interior, including redesigned doors and a completely new trunk. As you can see in the gallery, when down, the top is completely hidden in a very factory-like fashion. When up, it looks slightly awkward, though (and we'd really like to see a rear three-quarter view to check out the blind spots).
