Steve McQueen’s Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera
The American actor’s last automobile.

The “King of Cool,” Steve McQueen, may have made his name with films like Bullitt and The Sand Pebbles, but the American actor was also a noted car enthusiast who owned some of the most covetable automobiles in Hollywood. His last, a 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera purchased before his untimely death at the age of 50, recently hit the auction block and should fetch a pretty penny from car enthusiasts and movie buffs alike.

McQueen’s famous need for speed, by most accounts, always ensured he had the best sets of wheels and his special-order Porsche 930 is no exception. Capable of producing 234 horsepower at 5,500 RPM, the incredibly swift, four-speed car came equipped with the rare early production non-intercooled 3.0 liter turbo engine and was special ordered from Bob Smith Porsche in Hollywood. Among its unique McQueen-requested features include a sunroof, dual mirrors, limited-slip differential and black sport seats, along with a special-order paint job and custom wheels. The result is a car that was a worthy addition to McQueen’s garage, and one of the more memorable Porsches ever made.
