Porsche began to use exhaust turbochargers to charge engines as of the early 70s. However, these attempts were initially applied only in racing. In 1972 Porsche developed a version of the 917 racing engine with exhaust turbocharger and 100 hp output for the American CanAm Series. In 1974 the first racing car made on the basis of the 911 was ready to use. It was a turbocharged version of the 911 Carrera 3.0 RSR. The newly developed racing car with the type designation 911 Carrera RSR Turbo 2.1 had a turbocharged 3.1 liter engine with 500 hp. It had a breathtaking acceleration of 3.2 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h and 8.8 seconds from 0 to 200 km/h. The street version of the 911 Turbo was also presented in 1974. The 911 Turbo 3.0 was introduced on the German market in spring of 1975, it was available overseas with the type designation 911 Turbo Carrera only as of the model year 1976. From the introduction of the prototype Turbo to the latest 991 Turbo, the Turbo has always been the top model and most innovative car of the 911 type series. With only 2,880 units built between 1975 and 1977, the Turbo 3.0 liter is a much sought-after collectible today.
