In 1984 the new edition of the Porsche 911 Turbo (930) was released with increased power and improved interior comfort. The new 930’s power plant remained relatively unchanged except for some minor smart updates, which improved the torque and sound of the already well-proven 3.3-liter engine. The interior received updated front power seats improving the ride comfort considerably. It wasn’t until 1986 until the new Porsche 911 (30) Turbo was available in the USA. The biggest change to the 930 came in the last year of production with the addition of the 5-speed transmission called the G50, making this series rare and desirable. This series of Porsche 930’s really came to define the “Turbo” experience with the aggressive look and the legendary deadly turbo lag, making this one of the best rides in the park.
