Porsche secrets: The very first 911 Turbo [video]

Porsche has released a new video of its “911 secrets” series, taking a closer look at the very first 911 Turbo.

This is the very first production 911 Turbo and the car also had a very special owner as it was a birthday present for Louise Piëch, daughter of Ferdinand Porsche and sister to Ferry Porsche.

The car received some modifications and she drove it regularly, even on the curvy, Alpine roads.

The 911 Turbo (930) was introduced in 1974 and it was powered by a 260 hp 3.0-litre engine. The first turbo was well known for challenging handling and extreme turbo lag. Over the years and next generations the 911 turbo evolved greatly with improved handling and engines. In comparison the current 991 series 911 Turbo S packs an impressive 560 hp from a turbocharged 3.8-litre flat-six engine.
