Auction Block: 1980 Porsche 930 Turbo ‘Rinspeed R69’

Mar 30, 2021

Category: Rides

Founded in 1977 by Frank M. Rinderknecht, Rinspeed is a Switzerland-based automotive and tuning outfit, best-known today for its concept car designs. After cutting its teeth on modified versions of Volkswagen’s Golf Turbo at the tail-end of the 1970s, the Zumikon shop opted to take on a more ambitious project, modifying Porsche’s turbocharged 930 and bestowing it with a Ferrari Testarossa-inspired body kit.

Christened the “Rinspeed R69,” these customized 911s wore full fiberglass body kits complete with triple-slated side sections modeled after the RedHead and a front-end that combines elements from Porsche’s 944, the Ferrari Testarossa, and the 911 Slantnose. In addition to a six-into-three sport exhaust poking out from the left side of the car’s rear-end, the back of the R69 was also fitted with taillights from a 944. Despite only 12 specimens having been produced, a 1980 Porsche 930 Turbo ‘Rinspeed R69’ is up for auction through Collecting Cars, where bidding (as of the time of writing) has reached $68,860. Finished in Pearl White with a brown and plaid interior, this particular example is powered by a turbocharged flat-six, shows just under 70K miles on the odometer, and was recently treated to a complete mechanical overhaul. For more info, you can check out the auction page linked below.

Purchase: $68,860+
