That same year, Porsche introduced the 930, the first turbocharged version of the 911, which would make it to the US in 1976. This had 256 horsepower, and would that figure would climb to 300 in 1978. The 930 also had a 500-pound weight advantage over the Corvette, and the Corvette’s lower price could no longer make up for the enormous performance advantage of the 930. The remainder of the C3’s days were not pretty when compared to the 911. Things would once again take a turn in 1984 with the introduction of the C4 Corvette, and it is here where we see the rivalry really start to take shape.
