The '79 Porsche 930 Turbo was the last year that there was a US version until 1986, this is the 11th from last produced. It included a 3.3 liter turbocharged motor with intercooler.

How I fell in love with my ride:

I always loved Porsche's, especially the early models with the whale tail spoiler and the large fender flares. This car belonged to a good friend who one day wanted to sell. We had a standing deal that if he ever wanted to sell, it was mine.
