There are certain cars that, thanks to a connection to a certain person, place or event, transcend the realm of the automotive and become the stuff of legend.
Steve McQueen’s 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera, his final special-order Porsche, is one of those cars.
In an homage to the late Steve McQueen our Director of Sales, Hans Ulsrud, decided to order a paint-to-sample 2016 Porsche 911 Turbo to match the historic 1976 Turbo. We eagerly anticipated the arrival of our special car and couldn’t wait to display it on our showroom floor. However, it was snapped up well before it made it to our detail bays.
One of our friends and clients, who was in the market for a very special and unique Porsche, caught wind of the singular Turbo en route and instantly knew it was the car for him. Good eye! Both he and McQueen have good taste.
The touches that the late, great actor and pioneer of cool, made to his original 1976 Porsche Turbo were subtle but personal. The slate grey, special-order paint job, all-black interior, sport seats, and dual mirrors added up to a classic yet unique vehicle—much like McQueen himself. Superbly stylish and effortlessly cool.
This 2016 iteration has the same leather interior, stitching, and exclusive colour (the only one of its kind in the country).
It was our pleasure to help make our customer’s dream come true with his exclusive Porsche. And we know we can do the same for you.
