Suspension refinements, larger brakes and a strengthened four-speed gearbox rounded out the package, which included a functional “whale-tail” rear spoiler, wider rear wheels, upgraded tires, and flared rear wheel wells. Simply called the “Turbo”, it was released in 1975 with export to the U.S. starting in 1976. The 930 (internal designation) proved fast but demanding; however, skilled drivers quickly learned how to drive it properly and beyond the limits of most other sports cars.
