This week a very rare Porsche 930 Turbo Martini joined the Porsche Centre Sheffield team in the workshop. This particular car was one of 3 RHD cars in existence. The VIN number was checked which showed that this was the press car which captivated Magnus Walker at the Earls court Motor Show in 1977, and after realising this, Magnus signed the car.
The car had been in storage for nine years and has not been used, before being needed for a Magnus Walker photoshoot, so it was brought into us for a bit of TLC. The main problem was the high pressure fuel pump located in front of the nearside rear wheel, however after some great work from the team, they managed to get it running.
The owner Howard Watts said “I would like to say a massive thank you to the Porsche Centre Sheffield team and the team of 15 who are involved in the Magnus Walker photoshoot. It was a great success."
* Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since September 01, 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
