Earlier, I was not aware that the turbo had that height of 94mm, so the 930 front body actually sits at the same height as the 911 (if the wheel diameter is the same) whereas the front cross member has been lifted up by 14mm.

The raising of the cross member gave more ground clearance, didn't it?
Wasn't the SC-RS rally car 930 bodied?
I think the lowest points are still the parting line on the engine case, exhaust, front A-arm bushing mounts, harness bolts through the floor pan, etc. I don't think there is any gain in ground clearance.
