1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 Coupé

In 1974 Porsche AG introduced a turbocharged sports car at the Paris Motor Show – the new Turbo. With its three-litre displacement and exhaust-gas turbocharger the Turbo recorded new performance values.

Porsche had injected all of its sports car experience with exhaust-gas turbochargers into its series production models. At the onset only a small number of Turbos were planned. However, in the light of its amazing impact, production figures were boosted. — Porsche
