It is our pleasure to introduce this 1986 Porsche 930SE Turbo Slant Nose finished in Paint to Sample Ruby Red Metallic. Commissioned through Porsche’s Sonderwunsche (Special Wishes) Department, this German-market example features the “SE” performance package, handcrafted Flachbau bodywork, and a bespoke interior with Burgundy and White Special Leather upholstery, wood trim, a unique center console, a “Type F” steering wheel, and Sports Seats with contrast piping. This Turbo was acquired by the current owner about 10 years ago from a specialty car dealer in Chicago and was subsequently driven to New York where it remains today. After delivery, the car was treated to over $24k worth of service including a full rebuild of the transmission, new rear shock absorbers, new brakes, and a refresh of the ignition system. Since this time, the car has been kept tucked away in the owner’s collection while seeing no more than 200 miles of use. Several items have been recently carried out in preparation for sale including refinishing of the color-matched Fuchs wheels, all new brake pads and rotors, new rocker cover seals, valve adjustments, a full professional paint correction, and more. This outstanding 930SE is now being offered for auction while showing just over 55k miles on the odometer.
This 930 came factory finished in the Paint to Sample color of Ruby Red Metallic and features handcrafted Slant Nose bodywork including a redesigned front valence, flat vented front fenders, pop-up headlights, boxed rocker panels, and distinctive rear quarter air intakes. European side marker lights are equipped, and a unique quad-tip exhaust is also included as part of the “SE” specification. In preparation for sale, a full paint correction has been carried out along with refinishing of the front valence and color-matched Fuchs wheels. The paint is described to show well with only minor flaws and imperfections, additional images are provided in the photo gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report. The 16” Fuchs wheels on this example measure 7” x 9” in width and come dressed in new Yokohama Advan tires.
The cabin of this 930SE has been tailored with Burgundy and White Special Leather upholstery as well as Burgundy carpeting and Sports Seats with contrast piping. A Special Wishes Type F three-spoke steering wheel sits ahead of a dashboard clad in burled wood veneers. In the middle of the cabin, you will find a unique 930SE center console as well as a Special Wishes wooden shift knob. Other factory specifications include Equipment for Germany, an electric sliding sunroof, a passenger-side electric/heated mirror, and a windshield with green graduated tint.
Factory-applied labels remain affixed throughout the car including the original tire specifications sticker in the glovebox. The steering wheel has been previously reupholstered, and the interior has been professionally detailed in preparation for sale. Some signs of wear are visible on the seat bolsters as well as slight separation of the leather upholstery on the upper dashboard, and sagging of the headliner on the sunroof panel. An upgraded Alpine radio has been installed along with MB Quart speakers, and the original radio is said to accompany the sale as well.
The air-cooled 3.3L turbocharged flat-six engine is paired with a 4-speed manual gearbox and a factory-optioned limited-slip differential. The “SE” performance package raises the output of this engine up to 330 HP using a larger intercooler, higher-lift cams, a revised exhaust system, and increased boost pressure. Upon the seller’s purchase about 10 years ago, this 930SE was brought to Manhattan Motorsports to undergo over $24k worth of service including a full rebuild of the transmission, a new turbocharger, a new clutch, new ignition components, new heat exchanger pipes, new rear shock absorbers, and new brakes. Within the last several months, this Turbo has also received an updated 964-spec Bosch diverter valve, a new fuel level sending unit, new fuel pump relays, valve adjustments, resealed rocker covers, an oil change, and a refresh of the brakes with new pads, rotors, and fluid.
This sale will include a collection of original Special Wishes brochures, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and correspondence, original owner’s manuals, spare tire, and a clean title. This 930SE is also said to be accompanied by the original radio and air compressor. An exceptional representation of the craftsmanship Porsche’s Special Wishes department has become legendary for, this one-of-a-kind 930SE is a true collector's item.
