Unique Porsche 911: The Birth of the 930 Turbo

Modern 992 Turbo – A New Take on the Classic 911 Turbo

Porsche recently marked their 75th anniversary at the renowned Dubai Icons of Porsche Festival with a grand presentation of an exclusive 911 Turbo. This one-of-a-kind 992 Turbo Sonderwunsch was created to honor the inaugural model bearing the Turbo nameplate, which happened to be a 930 dubbed ‘911 Turbo Nr.1.’

Created in partnership with Style Porsche and Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, Porsche Middle East and Africa achieved the remarkable feat of manufacturing this vehicle. Its exterior is presented in the iconic GT Silver hue with an additional touch of red-and-black Porsche decals on the bottom part of its doors.

These five-spoke rims have been given a striking makeover with a black paint finish plus a chrome lip edge. This style cleverly evokes the legendary Fuchs wheels which adorned the first ever Porsche 911 Turbo. Care was taken to guarantee that this modern day homage stayed true to its ancestor – The Porsche Heritage & Museum department put in a great deal of effort to ensure authenticity.

“This remarkable vehicle is not only a demonstration of the capabilities of our Porsche personalization programs,” said Manfred Braunl, CEO of Porsche Middle East and Africa FZE. “It also highlights the daring and pioneering Porsche spirit as we reflect on the source of this project – the ‘911 Turbo Nr. 1.'”

No doubt, the staleness of being the very first 911 Turbo is noteworthy; yet, this unique 930 has something extra. It was engineered specifically for Louise Piech, daughter to Ferdinand Porsche and ancestor of Ferdinand Piech, offered as a 70th birthday present.

Not all the special features stop there, nevertheless. Whilst the 930 Turbo is renowned for its widebodied form and ‘widowmaker’ maneuverability, Piech had his instance with the narrow-framed build from the Carrera, but nonetheless highlighted the iconic rear wing that makes the Turbo different to other 911 models.

Piech went with a red indoor space and plaid cloth to enhance the silver outside. The corresponding interior design was selected for the current 911 Turbo. It is uncertain if the special order piece will be vending to a buyer, used as an advertisement vehicle, or remain in a managing organization’s group of possessions.

“A year ago, Patrick Gallas, Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur for the Middle East and Africa, had an idea: ‘We wanted to craft a modern version of a truly unique car. Fortunately, there are many Porsche models that people consider icons. We chose to ‘reimagine’ one of the most iconic of them all – the original 911 Turbo that belonged to Louise Piech.'”

Piech eventually exchanged the 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo for a 1989 911 Carrera 4, her culminating automobile. Like the Turbo, it was embellished with specialised add-ons and kept on serving her until she passed away in 1999.
