Holbert Racing Superwide Martini 924 Turbo



Summary:

This is a rare opportunity to own a very special and unique car. In nearly 30 years of Porsche ownership, I have NEVER seen another. It is 1980 series 1 924 Turbo (931) with a fiberglass Holbert Racing Superwide body kit and spectacular euro Martini striping. Limited slip 5-speed G31 transmission. Black interior in great condition with sport seats. This is a Series 1 924 turbo so no DITC sensor problems. There is NO rust. I’d say the car is in decent “driver” condition and has been meticulously maintained for more than a decade by a true 924 enthusiast. You can handily embarrass your 944 turbo, Cayman S and 911 friends as it is very, very fast. A wolf in wolf's clothing.

History:

Based on my research, in the late 1980’s a very small number of these cars were built by Holbert’s race shop in Warrington, Pa. The kits were based on their C-production SCCA bodies. The fenders on this car are race-thickness fiberglass (thin! light!) and 2” wider on each side than a 944’s bodywork, hence the “Superwide” designation. The front and rear bumpers are fiberglass as well. A LeMans Carrera GT spoiler was added to the rear hatch. A larger oil cooler was added as was an air-air intercooler. Carrera GT headlights and euro driving lights were added. And, a bold, beautiful Martini stripe on each side tops it all off.

Some features of this particular car:

• BBS 9x15 and 11x15 3-piece wheels. 225/50 and 285/40 tires. The three piece BBS wheels are fully refurbished and spectacular.
• Rare Carrera GT spec 6.10 K26 turbo.
• Limited slip G31 5-speed.
• Billy Boat B&B 3” stainless steel cat-back exhaust
• Currently configured with a PWR air-water barrel intercooler, pump and radiator.
• Audi 5000 large throat throttle body.
• Calloway micro-fueler computer. This is the same Calloway that you all know and love. The computer adds fuel via a 5th injector bung in the intake manifold when the car comes on boost.
• Jet-hot coated, upgraded 596 exhaust manifold.
• Black leather manual high-bolster sport seats with period-correct blue plaid inserts.
• Boost controller
• Green-faced gauges (unique to the 1980 924 turbo)
• Virtually uncracked, original dash.
• Added VDO gauge package including boost, oil temp and a/f ratio
• Any original parts removed were retained. Everything that came with the car goes with the car.
• 50,901 actual miles
• Currently registered as a Pennsylvania antique car

Additional information:

My philosophy has been to preserve the originality and patina of the car rather than make it perfect so I’d say the exterior is 7/10, especially regarding some light cracking in the right rear quarter panel where the fender flare is attached. It has been this way the whole time I've owned the car but I think it would be an easy repair if you want to do it.

Also, the nose is rather low and has taken a beating over the years. Rather than replace it I have chosen to preserve and repair it as I feel this speaks best to the story of this car. The interior is very good as are the mechanicals. Upgrades (like the PWR intercooler for example) were made to improve reliability, performance or drivability and all original parts were retained.

I’ve cherished this car since 2003 and reluctantly I must find the next curator for this important and fun-to-drive 924/931. I have clear title in my name ready for transfer. Mileage is true and correct and all documentation for the vehicle is included with the sale. Sadly, I have not driven it much in the past several years and so, in anticipation of sale, I have engaged my trusted Porsche shop to freshen the car for the benefit the new owner. A current PPI is available to bona fide buyers.

Offered for sale at $23,000 obo.

Ancillaries:

• As with any older car, sale is AS-IS, WHERE IS
• A significant spares package is available and can be negotiated at additional cost.
• I will ship to USA or worldwide.
• Buyer to make all shipping arrangements.
• I will release the vehicle and documentation when wire transfer has cleared my bank.
• Any in-person sale is USD$ cash-on-the-hood only.
• Clear PA title in my name in hand and ready to go. Car is located in Holbert country outside of Philadelphia.

I am a 28-year PCA member, Porsche owner and enthusiast.

Please PM with any questions.











The hood is unlatched...

Apologies as I have not really been able to focus my attention on this vehicle over the past several weeks. I wanted to bump it sooner but I just have had other things pulling me away and would not have been able to commit time to any potential buyers. So back to the top for the holiday weekend.

This is an amazing vehicle. It truly draws a lot of attention on the road. It is a challenging, exciting and fun car to drive and with the summer show season upon us, now would be a great time for the next caretaker to come on board to enjoy for this year.

Thank you again for all your inquiries. I am available for interested parties or their agent to inspect the car in person this weekend by appointment. Please PM to set something up.

Ok Pelicans, I’m preparing to market this car globally in the next week or so, so this is the last chance at this price. The vehicle is in the same condition as previously described, perhaps better.

Over the past 6 months while this car was off the market, I’ve been doing my homework. I found and spoke with the 1st owner who confirmed the original purchase in 1980 and the details of the conversion in 1983. I talked to the shop who kitted the car, a globally recognized and respected Porsche fabricator and restorer in North Jersey. I talked to the shop who maintained the car for the first and second owner, also a very well known and respected Porsche shop in NJ. Interestingly, despite not having seen the car for decades, ALL IMMEDIATELY REMEMBERED THE CAR and were incredibly excited to hear she was still on the road. No surprise.

A few weeks ago, I asked an old friend and Porsche restoration expert to come by the house to visit and assess the car - He also happened to run the racing program at Holbert’s for many years. He carefully looked the car over, confirmed the kit components were Holbert’s and was impressed with the build quality and with the car in general – “a really great car”…

So, including the factory build data I received from PCNA in Atlanta, I have documented the entire history of this car from July 31, 1980 when it was sold new by Herman+Miller Porsche in Parsippany, NJ until today. I’m happy to share the details with any serious buyer. Please PM and we'll figure it out. Better yet, come visit the car in person.

If you’re thinking about it, now is the time. Once I market it globally, it will be gone.

A couple of quick items and a weekend bump.

Mileage now 51719.

This is a numbers-matching car. The engine in the car matches the factory number and the original tranny is out of the car but goes with it of course.

Second, I've added a few pics of a couple of tasty details that might go unnoticed. The car has a vintage MOMO Mario Andretti signature steering wheel. And, the door handles have what appears to be an embossed, hand-painted Porsche crest. Maybe someone out there recognizes these from "back in the day" but I've never seen that before.

Thanks again for your interest. Would like this to stay in the Pelican family but time is running out.
