Steve McQueen’s 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

Ordered from Bob Smith Porsche in Hollywood by the man himself, Steve McQueen’s 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera is a rare piece of memorabilia — and one hell of a car. Known for his driving prowess, McQueen was able to secure a rare early production non-intercooled 3.0 liter engine in his 930, and had it paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. Other unique details include a sunroof, dual mirrors, black sport seats, and a special order Slate Gray paint job. McQueen replaced the original wheels himself, but all other details are the same as when he drove it off the lot, save for switch he had installed that would kill the rear lights in case he was being chased up Mulholland Drive. A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit The Boys Republic, a non-profit that helps troubled youths and which McQueen credited with turning his life around. [via uncrate]
