It’s remarkable to note that the mighty 930 Turbo, the widebody monster with a reputation for both huge performance and zero sympathy for driver error, hit the market in 1975 with just 260hp transmitted through a mere four-speed gearbox. Significantly less, in other words, than the basic 300hp Boxster has available today courtesy of a six-speed transmission. It’s also intriguing to recall the 930 originally existed to comply with FIA homologation requirements. Fast forward over 40 years and the 930’s relatively small-capacity 3.0-litre engine and turbocharged induction looks pointedly prescient. The 930 survived right up to 1989, when its G Series underpinnings were replaced by the 964 family. It also lives on today thanks to this fantastic 1:12 scale model from Minichamps and available in multiple colours at selectionrs.com for €239.95 or around £220.
