This 911/930 Turbo left Porsche's facilities in late 1978, purchased by real estate developer Ernst Kraus. Kraus was no stranger to fast, race-bred Porsches, having raced throughout Europe in the early 1970's, with perhaps his biggest accomplishment being finishing 7th overall at the 1976 24 Hours of Le Mans in a Porsche 908/3 campaigned by Reinhold Jöst.

The 930 was sent immediately to Ekkehard Zimmerman of DP Motorsport in Overath, Germany for conversion to DP I specifications. The fiberglass “flat-nose” front and rear fenders were widened to accommodate 15x9 and 15x11 Fuchs wheels. DP Motorsport, was founded in the early 1960s by Ekkehard Zimmermann and later teamed with Kremer Racing to develop a series of competition Porsches, including the 1979 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning Kremer K3. The European-spec DP 935 I conversion kit included flat-front fenders as well as a 930S-style bumper with integrated headlights, reminiscent of the 935, but for the street.

The power comes from a RUF-modified turbocharged 3.3-liter flat-six paired with a RUF five-speed manual transaxle.

Various options included: Modified RUF Turbocharged 3.3-Liter Flat-Six, Interior Mounted Adjustable Boost Knob (this set a .09 bar boost to allow ample power, but allowing engine longevity), Factory LED Boost Gauge, Larger RUF Intercooler, Modified RUF Airbox, Oil Cooler, RUF 5-Speed Manual Transaxle, Limited-Slip Differential, DP Motorsport 935 DP I Body Conversion, Drivers Side Fixed Back Racing Seat, Matter Roll Bar, Blaupunkt Bamberg Stereo, Large Diameter Fuchs Wheels, Bilstein dampers, Dual Racing Mirrors as well as a period Momo sport steering wheel.

Having been European collector owned and cared for many years and until 2020, this DP has stood the test of time. Forty-four years since being converted by DP and RUF, it is still in excellent condition throughout. Imported to the United States circa 2020, this DP has most recently resided in a Florida Porsche Collection.

A superb piece of Porsche German tuner history, this is a welcome addition to any collection or as originally intended, fast road use.
