Video: A Very Strange Ferrari Testarossa, Which Is Actually A Porsche, Will Go Under The Hammer
A very rare Porsche appeared at the British Collectingcars auction: the 930 coupe with an exclusive body kit developed by the Rinspeed studio. 12 days before the end of trading, the price reached 50,000 pounds sterling (about 69,000 dollars). At the same time, the car ran more than 111,000 kilometers.
The car is called Rinspeed Porsche R69 Turbo. It is easily recognizable as a Porsche - the 930, the first ever turbocharged 911. However, the contours of the body sidewalls in the style of the Ferrari Testarossa are no less recognizable. This is the merit of an unusual plastic body kit from the Swiss company Rinspeed.
- The coupe in Switzerland also replaced the headlights with lifting ones from the Porsche 944. They also took the taillights from it. The rest of the linkage components - bumpers and a wing - are also non-standard. But the 330-horsepower turbo engine was not finalized. With it, the car accelerated to a hundred in 5.1 seconds.
- The car for sale came off the assembly line in blue. But in the process of improvements at Rinspeed it was repainted in white and equipped with 15-inch Gotti wheels. The interior is finished with a combination of brown leather and light plaid. It shows some traces of exploitation, but overall it is in good condition.
Earlier, the Beverly Hills-based Marshall Goldman, a rare car dealer, put up for sale a 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo convertible in an unusual Flachbau (or Slantnose) modification. It has a redesigned front end with different bumper, hood and fenders, as well as pop-up headlights. Plus, the sold car has a scanty mileage. The sports car was estimated at $ 398,900 (30.3 million rubles).
