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."
