Based in Cologne, Germany, brothers Erwin and Manfred Kremer applied their love and knowledge of motorsports to establish a racing team and garage focused on preparing Porsches for competition. Founded in 1962, Kremer Racing would go on to play an integral role in Porsche’s triumphant motorsports history—both independently and, on occasion, as a factory-backed team.
Initially the Kremer tune house spec’d 911s, 914-6 GTs, and 934s, but it was with the introduction of the legendary Porsche 935 in 1976 that they really established their competitiveness. That year, the brothers tuned their first 935, distinguishing the model as the “K1.” By 1977, the K1 received its first major upgrade and became the K2.
Later in 1979, the 935 K3 featured custom aero closely resembling the Porsche factory 936/78 Evolution racecar’s bodywork. This state-of-the-art slippery shell coupled with a unique air/air intercooler system earned Kremer Racing a victory at the 1979 24 Hours of Le Mans, beating Porsche at its own game in its own cars. Kremer Racing continued to build a motorsports legacy with another noteworthy victory at the 1995 24 Hours of Daytona in the K8 Spyder. Although primarily focused on competition, Kremer did offer performance upgrades for street cars owned by racing fans that didn’t quite think their stock “Widow Makers” were fast enough.
Kremer offered aero body panels and several performance upgrades—both were extensively applied to the 1986 Porsche 930 Turbo listed here. Despite the dramatic aesthetic and mechanical Kremer touches, the overall look is still very much a 930, albeit enhanced just enough to catch the eye of P-car fanatics.
The body wears unique Kremer-inscribed aero mirrors, enlarged Kremer decklid “Whale Tail” spoiler fitted to accommodate their larger intercooler. The wheels are standard staggered Fuchs Turbos finished with semi-polished lips, full black spokes, and center caps.
The interior is equally distinct with factory-optioned power sport seats in vibrant red leather, matching red leather door panels, carpeting, and floor mats, and contrasting black dashboard and door trim. There’s also a Kremer Racing LED Ladedruck boost gauge, factory Blaupunkt radio with modern coaxial speakers, optioned power sunroof, power mirrors, and a Kremer boost adjuster for on-the-fly turbo management.
Under the enlarged rear decklid, the stock 3.3-liter flat-six has been treated with a Kremer 27 turbocharger, full-bay Kremer intercooler system, equal-length Kremer headers, and a quad-outlet Kremer stainless steel exhaust system in which the driver’s side outlet operates the wastegate. The original four-speed transmission is still intact, along with an optional and very desirable limited slip differential handling the engine’s mighty shove.
