Hi Alex, I am curious if you still have your 75 930? As I still have mine, and in the process of putting back my whaletail back to the stock ones, and just got my 3piece BBS and 15" Fusch redone. Once I put back the original snorkle headlight washers and European yellow rear turn signals, I will be happy, as I just acquired the stock Blamberg radio.
cheers

This is an amazing thread and I had the luck recently of stumbling on a '75 930 just next door to my kids' private school in a super random residential area. I parked my 911 out front and was rushing to the parent / teacher meeting when an older fellow out front of his house asked me if I liked old Porsches. I said for sure and he opened the garage to his black '75 930, original owner. I have never seen this thing around at all and he said he was able to purchase it as he was part of a "porsche racing program" in the '70's...um ok, my wife is texting me like crazy then I look past the 930 and there is a big lump with a fan on top...holy sheet, that's a 935 engine and his race car is in front of that. Pretty much I am speechless now and my phone is on fire so I have to beg off and promise to come back and visit again. I will be back very soon to visit and have a much better look at all he has tucked away!

This is a very interesting discovery and thanks for sharing. Please try to find out the VIN of that 1975 930 if possible. Did he say if he actually raced the cars? Also was this particular 930 used by Porsche in the race testing?

Supposedly, at least one early preproduction 1975 930s was used at Weissach in 1975-76 for testing the new group 5 race car to be raced in 1976 by the factory, the 935.

Cotton lists it in his book under Appendix C, Competition cars, 1965-80 911, 934 and 935. It is the second 930 ever produced: VIN 930570002-R15. The only other 935s for 1976 are the two race cars used by the factory chassis numbers: 935.001 and 935.002.

Looking back at history, one cannot deny that the 1975 930 is truly one of the pivotal years for one of the most legendary cars ever made. It transitioned the turbo charging knowledge Porsche gained racing the 1974 Turbo Carrera RSR to a road car as the venerable 930. Additionally the 1975 model year helped homologate the 934 and 935 for racing, and furthermore (as listed above) at least one car reportedly was directly used in the development of the 935s. Unfortunately, there are not too many 1975 930s remaining due to a high attrition over 41 years.

Keep us updated on your discovery, these cars are pretty rare. I am sure the owner has great stories to tell if he was involved in 1970s Porsche racing.

The fellow is likely in his '80's and yes, he did say he drove and his name is painted onto the race car. Unfortunately I did not take any pics or grab his last name. The '75 930 has been recently licensed although in 14 years of living within a few miles I have never seen it on the road. I did not have time to even get into the discussion on the race car but I did ask him to agree me to allow me to come back and visit again soon. Needless to say I could hardly believe what I saw and really look forward to hearing his stories.

From what I've researched:

R14 was 930 670 0001 which was eventually prepared into a 935/76
R15 was 930 670 0002 (aka 935-001)
R16 was 930 670 0003 (aka 935-002)

Hello,

I'm doing some detective work to see if I can locate the car this engine (6750179) was originally in? The closest I've found to date by going through online registries and forum discussion is;
VIN 9305700091 Engine 6750116
VIN 9305700198 Engine 6750214

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks
Sulio

Ice green metallic with full tartan interior says 3.0 registry. Very nice and thanks for sharing.

A '75 turbo is the holy grail of all turbo Porsche's, also on my bucket list

That 76 is amazing.
But who the Eff thought the K&N sticker was a good idea?

When K&N first came to the market, unknowing service techs were tossing people's filters instead of cleaning them. It was a warning to the tech to avoid getting your nice reusable filter tossed by an ignorant shop. It's probably been there for several decades. It was a good idea at the time.

Door cards, front and rear seats, parcel shelf, center console, tachometer / speedo, dash, wheels, engine ancillaries - For sale is not a '76, but a '77

For the '75 for sale, 1 poor quality pic, lack of information provided, email contact only, wonder if it is a scam.
