Chassis: 930 670 0161
Through Luxembourg Porsche distributor Martin Losch, it was delivered new to first owner Nicholas Koob in March of 1976. Koob raced the car predominantly in Belgium and The Netherlands with some success. Ahead of the next season, it was acquired by German racer Hans Christian J├╝rgensen. He campaigned the 934 in the DRM championship for three seasons, winning 11 races outright. The next owner was Puerto Rican Mandy Gonzales, who fielded the car in the 1980 IMSA championship. He first raced the car at Sebring where he finished second in class. It was also raced at Le Mans where the 934 lead its class but was forced to retire with accident damage during the 14th hour.

Back in the United States, it continued to be raced by Gonzales for several seasons. Late in 1981, it was fitted with a large rear wing and flared arches to accommodate wider tyres. Chassis 0161 was then updated to full 934/5 specifications by specialist Chuck Gaa of GAACO. At the end of the 1983 season, it was sold to Costa Rican racer Kikos Fonseca. He had the car fitted with a 962 engine and 935 style bodywork. It was then raced by Fonseca through to the end of 1989 when it was still competitive in local Costa Rican events. After nearly 15 seasons of active duty, the car was placed into storage with the 930/79 specification engine fitted again.

In 1994, it was sold at the Christie's Monaco auction, and was acquired by Dale Kennet of Oregon. Some five years later, it passed to Porsche enthusiast Jim Torres, who completed the rebuild that Kennet had started. Torres retained the 935, flat-nose body as used by Fonseca during the late 1980s. It then passed through the hands of fellow Porsche enthusiasts Monte Shelton and Mauro Borella. Having acquired the car in 2010, Borella had the car comprehensively restored by Kremer Racing to the 934/5 configuration as used by Gonzales in the early 1980s. Shortly after the work was completed, it was sold to an American enthusiast, who has since campaigned the car regularly in historic events. Early in 2020, it was consigned to British dealer William I'Anson.
