A little searching of the ol' interweb (googled 9113300157) has me thinking this is not the 930 prototype but rather the first car that Porsche constructed and showed as a Turbo Body, after which it was a museum piece then factory converted to an RHD 3-liter RSR for/to Australia; seems like it recently sold out of Australia and is now for sale at Princeton Lotus (same owner as Princeton Honda, hence the Honda dealership connection), Princeton Cars | New Lotus and Honda dealership in Princeton, NJ 08540. The info below is from Porsche 911 RSR Turbo Prototype for sale, classic cars for sale uk (Car: 13407)


"1973 Porsche 911 Turbo Prototype RSR

POA

"A unique opportunity to own one of the Porsche Factory Protoype 911's. This is the first Turbo bodied car built by the internal design studio at Porsche and was displayed to the Public in September 1973 at the Paris Motor Show.
In addition the car also featured at the 1974 Geneva, Frankfurt, Tokyo and Melbourne Motor Show. After its show duties the car was returned to the Porsche Museum. In 1975 at the personal request of the Australian Porsche importer Alan Hamilton the factory completed the car as a RHD RS 3.0 with an RSR 3.0 engine. Raced by Hamilton early in its life here in Australia.

"Today the car is in fantastic original condition retaining all of its unique features including the "Style Porsche " badges and the Turbo stripes. The interior had special paddle head rest sports seats and the car sits on 9 and 11 inch Fuchs wheels.

"Featured in many books including 'From R to GTR3R (the Racing Porsche)' by John Starkey.

"This car is one for the true collector."
