Johnny Tipler tells the story of the air-cooled turbocharged 911s, starting with the 934 and 935 race cars that fostered the Type 930 in 1974. the 930 accounted for over 21,000 vehicle sales before being replaced by the 964 Turbo in 1990, followed by the 993 Turbo in 1995.

Porsche Turbo

Lorsque Porsche a introduit le turbocompresseur en course sous la forme de la 917 Can-Am, le petit constructeur allemand a changé la face du sport automobile. Mais il ne s'est pas contenté de la compétition : il a choisi d'appliquer cette technologie aussi aux modèles de tourisme.

En installant une version turbocompressé de son six-cylindres refroidi par air dans sa fameuse 911, il a donné naissance à la 930 Turbo. Dès l'instant où cette voiture est apparue, au printemps 1975, elle a révolutionné le concept de supercar.
Au fil des ans, le constructeur a appliqué sa technologie d'avant-garde à tous les modèles de la gamme, depuis le SUV Cayenne jusqu'à sa dernière supercar, la 918 Spyder de 887 ch.

"Porsche Turbo" présente l'histoire complète des Porsche dotées d'un turbocompresseur, y compris les 935, 924, 944, Cayman et Panamera.
