The Porsche specification books include RoW 930 weights but you have to use them as a starting point. A/C was an option for RoW 930’s (until 1986) and when it was “non-optioned” would reduced 35kg (77 lbs) from the curb weight. Non-optioned sunroof would reduce 10-15 lbs, U.S. thermal reactors from '76-79 (+20 lbs), U.S. door bracing (+10-15 lbs), and U.S. larger rear bumper pads (+10-15 lbs). Otherwise, the ’76-79 weights were the same between U.S. and RoW. The collision shocks used on all U.S. 930’s were also required for many other countries but without them, you would also save ~35 lbs.

German Standard Curb Weight
