930 turbo NO POWER
 
New to Porsche's. Never owned one before.

A friend of mine is selling his '76 930 turbo, real nice, fast.

But.... but it has no power before 3000 rpm's

Is real hard to go uphill from stand still. I have to slip the clutch in order to go.

He says is normal because the turbo lag and the very long first gear.

What's wrong with the car?

Ok, this is not normal. You should be able to drive a 930 around happily without boost at all and keep up with regular traffic. I can easily stay out of the boost until the oil warms up. I would recommend a Pre-Purchase Inspection (PPI) done by a reputable shop. I can't tell you what's wrong with it, but you certainly should know before you purchase. Best of luck to you!

I believe poster is not accustomed to long 1:st gear and the fact that torque more than doubles after 3000 RPM.

What does "has no power" mean? It all boils down to his perception of "no power" and his expectations of "Porsche 911 Turbo".

I have a '77 turbo, it does take a certian amount of anticipation for initial off-boost acceleration compared to a N/A car. Keep in mind this car is capable of exceeding 50mph in first gear. Try that in an SC. However, my car does have enough power to fully engage the clutch at 1200rpm and drive away from a modest incline.
