The 180 mph was only in 1976. If a 1979 930 has a 160 mph speedo it was changed after 1983 because that is the year that Porsche came out with the 160 speedo. The 160 speedo has KM on the inside and mph on the outside. The euro cars will has only Kilometers.....

1976=180mph speedo
1979=150mph and around mid year change to 85 mph
1983-1989 160 mph (this speedometer is also known as a dual scale speedometer with KM on the inside of the mph.)

The above info is a fact not an opinion.
