Kemer 930

Hi guys

I thought you maybe interested in my rather rare 1978/79 Porsche Kremer 930.

This car was originally purchased in Germany and subsequently taken to Kremer racing for modification. It then went into a car collection where it was spotted by a British Porsche enthusiast / collector and imported into the UK in 2001. In 2002 the car was the subject of a road test by GT magazine where it was stated that ‘a 22 year old car can still be one of the fastest you'll ever drive’.
I purchased the Kremer 3 years ago following some research and help from the PCGB. In fact the 930 register secretary actually knew the car and had driven it in 2006 pronouncing it ‘a very good buy’.
In my ownership the Kremer has won a rosette from Piston Heads, been displayed at many car shows and recently road tested by Classic Cars Magazine (June 2015) where it was stated as 'This is a very accomplished car, even when it’s turned up to eleven’. However, it’s at its best being driven when it always puts a smile on my face.

Engine
Kremer racing modified:
Flat 6 air-cooled 3,300 cc
Turbo - K27
800 cu intercooler
Cams - sport / racing
Exhaust - 934 type central outlet
Large front mounted 934 oil cooler

HP 389 bhp @ 6,900 rpm (.8 bar boost)
 Torque 370 lb/ft @ 4,900 rpm
Transmission
Four-speed manual
Factory option LSD
Suspension / brakes Kremer modified:
Lowered suspension
Strut brace
H/D Torsion bars front and rear Bilstein competition dampers
Body
Kremer modified:
Front air-dam / spoiler
Larger engine cover and ‘whale tail’
Performance
Top Speed: >170 mph
0 - 60 mph: <4 secs

Incidentally the colour is original Porsche Petrol Blue

Pic below was taken at this years Goodwood Festival of Speed with the car on display on the Porsche Club GB stand.

Beautiful car, thanks for sharing. If you are offering it for sale here I believe you must list a price.

Wonderful car! Are you running the stock fuchs or the wider 8&9's?

They are the 8&9's which were standard on the 78/79 cars - I think

Thanks Nick. Just curious which ones you had on yours.

Standard widths for 78/79 were 7&8's with 205/55 front, 225/50 rear tires.

Btw welcome to the forum!!

Hi Edward
When I purchased the Kremer it had standard stock interior - I changed the seats to black leather covered Cobra race seats to provide enough height for my 6' 3" frame and race helmet (original seats retained). I also had a special FIA bolt-in 'cage' manufactured and a 'cup' steering wheel fitted (to get the reach right for me); everything actually looks 'period' with most people thinking it to be. However, I have made sure that the car can be retuned to 'stock' if required.

Stock meaning stock new from Kremer instead of stock new in Porsche dealer showroom inventory. Neat car! Would be wrong for some misguided someone, someday ( you'd be surprised ) to put it back to before Kremer. Plenty of those out there.

Thanks for the great comments - it also handles really well.

I had some race driver training recently from a guy by the name of Gary Marsh (runs a company called 'The Need for Speed"), who also races Porsche's, he said after he had had a go;

'I really liked your Kremer Porsche. The brakes & handling were spot on. The engine characteristics & turbo lag take a bit of getting used to. The car would go really well on a sweeping power Circuit like Silverstone GP where you could be on the throttle & keep the revs & boost going for a lot of the lap'.

He's absolutely right; on the track, on slow corners, its quite demanding as you have to time hitting the gas way before the apex to get the turbo spooled up - still practice make perfect (I still need a lot of practice!). On the road, turbo lag is a lot less noticeable than on a standard 930 which I suspect are due to the Kremer changes to the cams and the 934 exhaust.

Ill see if I can look up some more pics if you want.
