The 911 was one of the first series-production car of the world with a turbo charger, but the first which was successful sold. Porsche was able to cultivate the Turbo and made him stable. Thereby the motorsport know-how was very helpful. There was the turbo charger used a longer time ago.

Now you know, that the turbo was planed as a small series of 400 units, to have a car for the motorsport homologation. So the 911 turbo was rejudged on the Paris Motor Show in 1974, to use the car in motor sport in 1976. To place the wider tires for the racing sport, the turbo got wider fender in front and back, which gave him this wonderful overhanging molds. Primarily the turbo was projected as a lightweight construction and got a own type number - the 930. But in 1974 the FIA change the the rules, so a lightweight construction was not needful now.

So Porsche discussed over a sales version and decided to build a exclusiv equip super sports car.

The Porsche 911 turbo was born.
