1985 Porsche 911 Turbo Slant Nose Conversion

Up for auction is this 1985 Porsche 911 Turbo Slant Nose conversion finished in white over a black leather interior.  Beginning life as a standard Turbo Coupe, this 1985 example underwent a full steel Slant Nose body conversion in the 1980’s resulting in a truly eye-catching look.  Having had its numbers matching turbocharged flat-six engine rebuilt within the last 10k miles, this Slant Nose is said to be in great driving condition with brand new tires and approximately 106k miles displayed on the odometer.

During the 1980’s this Turbo underwent a full steel Slant Nose body conversion which included the front and rear fenders, and boxed rockers.  Following the conversion this Turbo is said to have been professionally refinished in its original color of white.  The paint is noted to be in great condition with a recent full detail, paint correction and application of ceramic coating.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with invoices from the initial Slant Nose conversion.  This Turbo rides on OEM Fuchs wheels which come dressed in brand new BFGoodrich G-Force tires.

Inside, the driver is situated in a black leather interior which is said to be in great shape with all gauges and accessories remaining fully functional.  Some noteworthy details include factory white instrument dials, an aftermarket radio, a re-covered 930 S steering wheel and “930” logo floor mats. The air conditioning system has also been updated to use R134a refrigerant. 

This 930 carries an air cooled 3.3 L turbocharged flat-six engine which is mated to a numbers matching 4-speed manual transmission.  Approximately 300 HP stock is sent to the rear wheels providing for a 0-60 time of approximately 4.5 seconds and a top speed north of 150 MPH.  A larger aftermarket intercooler is equipped, and a full engine rebuild was carried out about 10 years ago within the last 10k miles. The seller also notes that the Porsche Classic Center in Atlanta performed a recent service of the fuel injection system.  New brake pads and rotors were installed 2 years ago along with new suspension bushings.  This 930 is said to be in top running order with a collection of service records and receipts.

The sale of this Turbo will include a set of two keys and service records.  For any enthusiast who has always admired the exotic styling of the Slant Nose, this 1985 steel conversion 930 offers an incredible opportunity.

    the slant nose was a poster hanger for me in the 80's ... this one looks to be a well done conversion. Love the side rakes and rear wiper option. Refreshing take on an otherwise 'normal / prolific' (though certainly iconic) 911.

  • bugeyed9 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @rmccle With all the documentation that you have, I was ninety-nine percent sure that you the title. But, I didn't want to leave anything to chance. Thanks for the quick reply

  • rmccle (seller) 1 monthago

    @bugeyed9 Thanks for this question. Yes, I have owned this car for many years. I have clear title to it.

  • bugeyed9 (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    I didn't see it mentioned.... Do you have the title to the car?

  • rmccle (seller) 1 monthago

    Thank you for the interest in my 930. PLEASE NOTE: So that all the serious lookers know, I will not be available after 9:00 PM on Thursday evening. If you have questions about the car, please ask them before then so that I can answer them as thoroughly as I am able. I apologize for this but I will be unavailable from then through the close of the auction.
