Factory equipped with Sport Seats, a limited-slip differential, and a rare sunroof delete option, this 1979 Porsche 911 Turbo was acquired by the current owner from Rusnak Porsche of Pasadena in 1998 and underwent a full Slant Nose-style body conversion by a dealer in Las Vegas under prior ownership. In 2023, a custom engine rebuild was performed by Lance Aspesi at DutchStone Global of California including a 3.4-liter displacement upgrade with Mahle pistons and cylinders as well as Garrett twin turbochargers, custom intercoolers, twin-plug ignition, 993 RS cams, custom 962-style headers, a carbon fiber fan shroud, and more. With approximately 500 miles driven on the rebuilt engine and 139k miles showing on the odometer, this custom 930 is now being offered for auction once again on PCARMARKET by its longtime owner out of California.

This 930 has been modified with Slant Nose-style bodywork including flat front fenders with louvers and pop-up headlamps as well as boxed rocker panels and straked side air intakes. The seller states the car was refinished in the current white color during the body conversion, and it was originally finished in the rare Paint to Sample color of Azure Blue (522) according to the paint code in the door jamb and the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. Equipment includes a front valence with a chin spoiler and integrated fog lights, a factory sunroof delete roof panel, custom dual tailpipes, upgraded red Brembo brake calipers, a Tea Tray rear spoiler, and 18” HRE three-piece 993 Turbo-style wheels. The car rides on Toyo Proxes R888 tires from 2015 measuring 235/40 in front and 285/30 in the rear. The seller notes the roof and parts of the hood show minor crinkles in the finish and some stone chips are present on the front bumper. Detailed images are provided in the gallery.

The black leather interior features a pair of reupholstered factory Sport Seats along with a three-spoke sport steering wheel, a wooden Porsche-crested gear knob, drilled aluminum pedals, black carpet floor mats with embroidered Porsche logos, a Blaupunkt Stockholm 400DAB stereo, upgraded Kicker speakers, and a fire extinguisher mounted below the driver’s seat. A Kicker subwoofer box is also mounted loose behind the front seats.  Other accessories include power windows and an electrically adjustable passenger side mirror. The seller notes the rear parcel shelf was replaced with an aftermarket plastic piece and all gauges are fully functional apart from the heater.

Power comes from an air-cooled flat-six engine that was rebuilt by Lance Aspesi at DutchStone Global in 2023 and features a 3.4-liter displacement upgrade with Mahle 7:1 pistons and cylinders as well as twin-plug ported and polished heads, 993 RS cams, a 993 distributor, dual MSD ignition 6AL ignition modules, new factory fuel rails, a Weldon fuel pump, twin Garrett T2/T3 ball bearing turbochargers, custom intercoolers, and Innovative wastegates. The engine was also decorated with silver powder coating and a carbon fiber fan shroud. The cooling system features two electric fan-assisted 944 oil coolers in front with braided stainless steel lines. The rear wheels are driven by a 4-speed manual transmission which was rebuilt with a replacement case and paired with an upgraded clutch. Other upgrades include Weltmeister sway bars, Bilstein sport shocks, 33mm torsion bars, and 4-piston Brembo brakes. The seller states approximately 500 miles have been driven on the rebuilt engine and service records are included in the sale along with some original engine parts.

This sale will include service records, original engine parts, a toolkit, an air pump, a clean title, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

    @AllanLambo This car was purchased in 1998. The conversion was done by the previous owner in the early 80s.
    The dealership that it was bought from said that the original owner wanted a Slantnose I didn’t want to do the fiberglass conversion to it so when Porsche started offering their version of a slant nose from the factory, the owner ordered the complete Slantnose kit and had it shipped to the states where it was been converted by a dealership in Vegas. If you look at the photos taken under Neath and inside of the trunk area, you can see that the craftsmanship is exceptional and there are no signs of any strange welding or paint work.

  • AllanLambo (registered bidder) 8 months, 1 weekago

    @Tubnut356 was there any accidents prior to 1998? Is that what prompted the slant conversion?

  • Tubnut356 (seller) 8 months, 1 weekago

    @AllanLambo The EMS is a Motec M8. There are no accidents since the the car was purchased in 1998. Carfax doesn’t go back further than late 1990’s. The car only has break in miles since the motor was built and haven’t had a chance to put it on a Dyno to push it to see what it does.

  • AllanLambo (registered bidder) 8 months, 1 weekago

    Still no build invoice? Dyno? Any accident history? What engine management does this use?

  • RumbleAuto (registered bidder) 8 months, 1 weekago

    Very impressive 911! GLWTA

  • delanodp 8 months, 1 weekago

    Dyno results?

  • Tubnut356 (seller) 8 months, 1 weekago

    @wcode The car is currently registered in California. Because of the performance modifications it will not pass California emissions.

  • wcode (registered bidder) 8 months, 1 weekago

    Is the car smogged and registered for CA?

  • Tubnut356 (seller) 8 months, 1 weekago

    @AllanLambo Part of an early retirement plan.

  • Tubnut356 (seller) 8 months, 1 weekago

    @AllanLambo The conversion is all steel from the Porsche factory. It was ordered and sent to the states in the early 80s and the conversion was done then.

  • AllanLambo (registered bidder) 8 months, 1 weekago

    Is the slantnose conversion steel or fiberglass?

  • AllanLambo (registered bidder) 8 months, 1 weekago

    Also .. after owning the car for 25yrs... why sell now after all the hassle of a major motor rebuild?

  • AllanLambo (registered bidder) 8 months, 1 weekago

    Dyno sheet? Engine build invoice? Compression test?

    @maladent Thanks for the presentation compliment! Other than the information listed in the description there isn’t an actual itemized printed receipt. I am working on obtaining one from the builder.

    @tubnut356 Beautiful presentation. Any history on the transmission rebuild? Any chance of seeing the engine rebuild invoice? Thanks
