Not to mention the custom Stereo and rain sensor that raised the roof automatically upon detection of any rain.

I believe he said with the magnesium boost knob Hp could be safely raised to over 500 hp from the factory and it had a 6 speed tranny using many 959 parts. Has to be one of the nicest Porsche's ever made.
There is a writeup on the car in Henry Rassmussen, "Porsche- Six Cylinder Supercars". At least, it sounds like the same car.
