When the ACO changed its car regulations for the 1976 24 Hours of Le Mans, Jean-Louis Château came up with this Porsche 930 Turbo to take advantage of it.

The 930 Turbo wears bodywork from a Porsche 3.0 RSR and a 934. The front and rear wings came from the RSR. The front and rear spoiler cames from the 934. At the time, it also had a twin-turbo engine, but today’s version only has a single turbo. How did Château do? With co-drivers Dominique Fornage and Jean-Claude Geurie, they retired during the seventh hour of the 24-hour affair.

A few years after the Le Mans race, the car burned down to the ground. In 2021, it was rebuilt with a donor car under the guidance of Sébastien Crubilé, of Crubilé Sport, with input from his close friend Château.

Find this 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo for auction at Aguttes, with an estimated value of €280,000-€340,000 (approximately $300,000-$370,000 USD).
