High bid of $250,000 at 2016 RM Sothebys : Amelia Island. (did not sell)
The Type 930/60 engine, fitted with thermal reactors to reduce exhaust emissions, was enlarged to 3.3-liter displacement in 1978 and produced 265 horsepower with the help of a large intercooler. Porsche fitted a sturdier four-speed manual transmission instead of the five-speed gearbox of lesser models. The 911 Turbos had large fender flares which were emphasized by black gravel guards on the rear and silver-anodized seven-inch- and eight-inch-wide forged Fuchs alloy wheels with black-painted center spokes. In the back was a large 'whale-tail' spoiler with rubber edging. The top speed approached 160 mph, and when it was introduced in 1975, the Turbo was the fastest production car Porsche had ever created.

This 911 Turbo is the 848th of 1,200 M-Series, U.S.-specification Turbos produced for 1979. It is an original, unmolested example that has been driven just 548 miles. It was delivered new by Moore Porsche-Audi in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was soon put into dry storage. The original owner kept the car until 1987, when it was sold to its second owner, who kept it until 2015, before coming into the care of its current caretaker.

It is finished in Silver paint with black anodized exterior trim and door handles, with a black leather interior. It is equipped with a limited-slip differential, an electric sunroof, electric windows, air conditioning, a rear window wiper, heated and electrically adjustable outside mirrors, fog lights, and a stereo entertainment system. It has its original documentation, including its owner's manual in its original maroon vinyl slipcase, a jack, a tool kit including gloves, an air compressor, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.
