Porsche 930 3.6L Turbo

Porsche 930 3.6L Turbo 

This is a project car we built in 1995 that started the bespoke design direction we have continued with today.

Back in the early 1990’s the Porsche 930 was often upgraded- mostly using off the shelf parts that would now be considered very rudimentary in function and appearance. The fueling was some sort of add on part that added additional fuel via 1 injector placed in the Intercooler tract. Additionally, an inductive wasted spark system usually controlled the ignition. The engine typically had an increase in displacement, a 3.2L Carrera Intake, 1 single large turbocharger bolted to a simple aftermarket exhaust system.

Our design goal was to produce an engine along with service parts that were custom and bespoke, and had a performance level in the 700 BHP range. It needed to drive like a normal street car but when pushed, perform like a race engine.

We were asked by Road and Track to bring the car to Pomona Raceway for their 0 – 100 -0 mph shoot-out, which they do every four years. We turned up in 1996 with a 1989 car, causing us to be the butt of many jokes by the other suppliers, considering their cars were 1996 model year cars; Porsche brought their latest 993 Twin Turbo car. Our car quickly became a huge interest to the assembled personnel, especially those from Porsche. ‘What is this 1989 Porsche 930 doing here, running against the very latest Turbo from Porsche?’

The test results below show our car’s performance; however, 1989 Porsche 930 cars use a standard braking system and not ABS. The car was fitted with the latest race level Brembo brake parts, but without ABS on a slick drag strip, we saw that our braking system was far inferior to the other cars present. We managed to make up for this disadvantage with the engine’s power and the car’s acceleration.

We have come a long way since then in our technology, but our same core business has not changed. We offer custom bespoke designs and solutions that are not typically offered in the aftermarket.
