Porsche made its first and most significant changes to the 930 for 1978 model year, enlarging the engine bore by 2 mm to a total displacement of 3,299 cc and adding an air-to-air intercooler. By cooling the pressurised air charge, the intercooler helped increase power output to 296 hp at 5,500 rpm and 412 Nm (304 lb/ft) of torque at 4,000 rpm. 0-60 mph for the slant-nosed models was achieved in just 4.7 seconds.
A seriously expensive car when specified new, the Rinspeed “969”, and supplied new by JCT 600 Porsche, Leeds, it was built to order for its carpet magnette first owner. This car has wanted for nothing during its lifetime. Boasting an excellent Porsche main dealer service history, it presents beautifully, and would bring something unique to even the largest Porsche collection.
Benefitting from significant recent expenditure, the Rinspeed 969 is complete with history file, invoices, MOT history and Porsche-stamped service handbook and tool roll. This is a wonderful, low mileage example of 1980’s motoring history, which is ready to be enjoyed.
