@Viking: This old school Porsche looks to be a blast to drive.

Yeah, I would also like to drive one of these. Very quick, fast car. Good looks. Rather challenging to drive quickly, not a car for novices. A good challenge for excellent drivers to master.

Very impressive test data for the '78 car. The very first 911 Turbo still remains to be competitive. True veteran.

5.2s is correct tested by auto motor und sport published 25/1975.

Automobil Revue magazine from swiss recived similar numbers back in 1975...

0-160km/h 12.4s
0-200km/h 20.2s

5.2 to 62 is that right? it sounds a bit too quick.

That is a 3.0 first generation turbo. the high headlight washers, single mirror and whale tail give it away

the first 930 Turbo had 4 speed later they switched to 5speed..

i do belive all 930 turbos had a 4 speed gearbox.
Porsche did have a 5 speed box in some 930:s but it was considered too weak for the turbo so it had the 4 speed box.

No the honor for the first production car with Turbo engine goes to GM...
1962 Oldsmobile Cutlass Jefire and Chevrolet Corvair Monza Spyder were the first. But after them it needed 1ß years till the next Turbo engined car..the 1973 BMW 2002Turbo. Porsche was next presenting the 911Turbo the first time in Paris in 1974.

Isn't it the first turbocharged production car in the world?

The first 911 Turbo! Compared to today´s car it is slow. In 1975 it ws a hammerblow as it hit the market! The F1 worldchampion Nikki Lauda called it "eine Sau" (a pig) because of the tricky handling... he ordered one after his first testdrive..
