The Porsche 930 was the maker's top-of-the-range 911 model for its entire production duration and, at the time of its introduction, was the fastest production car available in Germany.
Porsche made its first and most significant changes to the 930 in 1978, enlarging the engine bore by 0.08 inches to total displacement of 3.3L and adding an air-to-air intercooler. By cooling the pressurized air charge, the intercooler helped increase power output. The rear spoiler was re-profiled and raised slightly to make room for the intercooler and was now infamously called the “tea tray” spoiler by the enthusiasts. The suspension benefitted from new anti-roll bars, firmer shock absorbers and larger diameter rear torsion bars. Porsche also upgraded the brakes to units similar to those used on the 917 race car. While the increase in displacement and addition of an intercooler increased power output and torque, these changes also increased the weight of the vehicle, especially the engine, which contributed to substantial change in the car’s handling and character compared to the earlier 3.0L models.
The 930 remained available in Europe and for 1983, performance option became available on build-to-order basis from Porsche. With the add-on came quad-pipe exhaust system and an additional oil-cooler requiring remodeled front spoiler and units bearing the add-on often featured additional ventilation holes in the rear fenders and modified rockers.
By the 1985 model year, 928 sales had risen slightly, but the question remained as to whether it would supersede the 911 as the company's premier model. Porsche reintroduced the 930 to the Japanese and U.S. markets in 1986 with an emission-controlled engine. At the same time, Porsche introduced targa and cabriolet variants, which proved popular.
Competition to this Porsche in 1987 included Chevrolet’s Corvette, Ferrari’s Mondial 3.2, Mazda’s RX-7 Turbo, Mercedes-Benz’s 560 SL, Nissan’s 300ZX Turbo and Toyota’s Supra Turbo.
