This particular Porsche Turbo began life as a special order that was initiated internally by Porsche Client Services on March 7th, 1989. Finalization of the assembly configuration was then initiated under commission number “078K” with chassis number WP0ZZZ93ZKS000799 being assigned to the car.
Both the sequential vehicles before, WP0ZZZ93ZKS000798 and after, WP0ZZZ93ZKS000800 were also special order “S” examples. Those two would be part of a very unique and extremely rare option group which identified them as Type 770/930S or what is more commonly referred to as simply "930 Turbo S.”
Initially WP0ZZZ93ZKS000799 was a standard turbo with a normal, 300bhp, Type “M930/66” engine number 67K1074. This was quickly changed and the car was instead fitted with a 330bhp, Type “M930/66S” engine number 67K00880. The fitting of the engine was only a small part of the upgrade to “S” specifications. The “S” engine used a combination of higher-compression pistons and cylinder heads as well as updated KKK K27 turbocharger and upgraded intercooler. These rare, high performance engines used a unique, low-restriction exhaust system with dual, quad-tip exhaust ports at each end. This necessitated a revised, rear valence system to accommodate the dual outlet pipes. The engine produced significant more heat and the dual-oil cooler system was insufficient to deal with the extra heat. A large multi-pass oil cooler was fitted behind a modified front air dam that allowed additional cooling air in and had it exit out the left-front wheel well.
