Rare 1976 Porsche Turbo Has Only 35k Original Miles
One of just 530 produced, this low-mile Porsche 911 Turbo has all the makings of a fantastic investment. Sporting low miles, great options, and a low production number, this beautiful Porsche 911 Turbo is one heck of a find.
There was a time when air-cooled safety-bumper Porsches were what one might call cheap. Those days, of course, are pretty much over. And highly coveted models like this beautiful 1976 Turbo up for grabs at Daniel Schmitt & Co are commanding top dollar.

Rare and Rarely Driven
This isn't just any old regular '70s 911 either. It's one of just 530 produced this particular model year, making it a rather rare ride. And with just 35,770 miles on the clock, it's in spectacular original condition.
This particular 930 was owned for over 30 years by a Porsche Club of America member, and it really shows. Those looking for a first production year 930 would certainly have a hard time finding a nicer example, that's for sure.
The Platinum Metallic paint and Cinnamon interior are completely original and in flawless condition. In fact, they were nice enough to score a class win at the 2018 Porsche Club of America National Concours and win a 2018 PCA Concours trophy.
Pretty much everything you'd expect a car of this caliber to have is there as well, including a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, Owner’s Manual, and the original tool kit.
Interestingly, that level of detail extends to the engine as well. The numbers-matching mill was rebuilt just 300 miles ago, despite its low mileage. A new clutch and tires were added at that time as well.
This particular 930 was optioned with a host of goodies, including an electric sunroof, U.S. Equipment Group, and leather interior.
Additional options include Fuchs wheels, a Blaupunkt AM/FM radio with cassette player, air conditioning, and a power antenna.
Searching for Flaws
Overall, it's hard to find many bones to pick with this gorgeous 911. It's obviously been well-cared for over the years, a testament to its previous ownership.
Values of cars like this first-year 930 have skyrocketed in recent years, and that doesn't look to slow down any time soon. Thus, we imagine that excellent examples like this one still have a long ways to go in the value department!
