When it comes to 1980s Porsche tuners, the immediate name that pops into enthusiasts’ minds is Ruf. And for road cars, certainly the Yellowbird set the tone for performance tuned cars and remains legendary today. In the shadows of Ruf’s imposing figure, though, were smaller firms such as Andial. Andial worked in tandem with Porsche Motorsports to run many of the customer racing program cars such as the 935, 956 and 962. This gave them some serious credentials and notoriety for building impressive cars. Some of those Andial-built motors ended up in road-going Porsches, such as this 3.5 liter converted 930:

No power figures are supplied, but figure this well built twin-plug motor should be capable of some pretty serious horsepower. There are some touches that are a bit over the top; they’re nice items, but the color-coordinated Momo bits inside and the red-painted BBS wheels are a bit much for my taste. Despite the higher mileage presentation is quite nice, and like the Ruf cars well built and documented Andial cars command a premium over some other models – but only to certain people. I’m not sure I’d prefer this particular example and the premium over a clean, unmodified 930 – but if you want something a little different and the paperwork checks out on this car it could be a neat alternative to the typical Ruf crowd and one that most Porsche enthusiasts would appreciate seeing at a show. A very similar model was on offer last year from AutoKennel for half the price with a recent engine rebuild, which would indicate that the asking price of this car is probably pretty optimistic.
