When you cross a Ferrari Testarossa with a first-generation Porsche 911 Turbo, you get the bizarre Rinspeed Porsche R69 Turbo. Only twelve examples were ever made, all powered by a turbocharged 3.3L flat-six engine making 296 hp and 304 ft-lb of torque, mated to a four-speed manual transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. This particular example has 69,478-miles on the odometer and left the factory finished in Petrol Blue metallic before being repainted in Pearl White.

The Rinspeed Porsche 969 Turbo has a completely redesigned body that includes Testarossa-inspired side strakes, a slanted nose, tail lightts from a Porsche 944, and an extended rear section over the engine. It rides on 15-inch Gotti split-rim alloys, while the interior remains mostly original, finished in brown leather with tartan center cloth panels.
