1976 Porsche 911 Turbo Carrera

First Floor - Artistry

Porsche began development of a turbo version of its 911 in 1972 after witnessing the success of turbocharging on its 917 race cars. Production began in 1975 but the model did not reach the U.S. until 1976. The body, while clearly descended from that of the 901/911, had more muscular contours to accommodate wider tires and a massive rear spoiler to improve roadholding. The car’s dramatic design betrayed its exceptional performance and the Turbo Carrera was an immediate sensation.
