I think a stock '76 Turbo would pull away from your Carrera. Even the "little" 3 liter non-intercooled Turbo Carreras have 265HP in US trim. They're also about the same weight as a 3.2 car. Maybe the gearing would be an issue, but it's hard to say.

Lag's is a real issue to cope with on a stock 930. How many stock ones are even out there any more? My engine's totally stock, and it's extremely laggy. A blast to drive, but not the greatest for corners.

On the track, I'd guess Carrera would probably walk away from a '76 930.

Bench racing is fun.
