We are pleased to present this 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo Slant Nose finished in Guards Red.  Ordered through Porsche’s Exclusive program, this 930 came factory fitted with the Slant Nose option (M505) as well as a specially crafted Linen leather interior including a unique center console, leather dash with storage trays, Sport Seats with deviated piping, and a rare 935-style boost gauge.  It was reportedly sold new to a prominent businessman in Utah before changing hands with a famous baseball pitcher in Nevada and eventually being acquired by the current owner in Florida.  This numbers matching 1987 example recently underwent a major service at a cost of over $7k and is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida with just over 52k miles showing on the odometer.

This 930 is finished in Guards Red and is factory equipped with handcrafted steel Flachbau fenders, pop-up headlights, boxed rocker panels, and rear fenders with slatted air intakes as part of the M505 Slant Nose option.  The seller notes the car was completely refinished in its factory color to address fading of the original paint under the care of its second owner, detailed images are provided in the gallery along with paint meter readings and a clean CARFAX report.  This Turbo rides on factory 16” Fuchs wheels with polished outer barrels and Fuzion ZRi tires.

Inside, the cabin comes trimmed in Linen leather and features deeply bolstered Sport Seats with deviated piping as well as a special dashboard with leather-wrapped air vents and under-dash storage trays.  The Special Wishes department also fitted a unique leather-wrapped center console housing an analog clock, temperature dial, heater control, a stereo equalizer, and original Blaupunkt radio.  Ahead of the Linen leather steering wheel sits a full suite of VDO instrumentation including a very rare and highly sought-after 935-style boost gauge. Other options listed on the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity include automatic heating control, an alarm system, left-seat lumbar support, an electric sliding sunroof, and premium velour carpet in the luggage compartment.

This 930 is equipped with its original 3.3L turbocharged flat-six engine that generates up to 282 HP and 289 lb.-ft of torque.  Power is sent to the rear wheels through a numbers matching 4-speed manual transmission and a factory-optioned limited-slip differential.   A major service was recently completed by the specialists at German Tech Inc. at a cost of over $7k including new valve cover gaskets, ignition components, sunroof seals, drive belts, valve adjustments, new filters, a new engine insulation pad, and an overhaul of the A/C system.  A corresponding invoice is provided in the gallery along with images of the undercarriage, drivetrain stampings, and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

This sale will include the original owner's manuals, a toolkit, a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and a clean title.  A testament to the craftsmanship of Porsche’s Special Wishes department, this Slant Nose highlights some of the rarest and most exclusive factory options of the era.  Do not miss the chance to add this stunning 1987 Slant Nose to your collection.

    @tampabaysportscars Did you receive confirmation regarding the origin of the custom interior? Porsche OEM? AJR? Or unknown perhaps? Thank you.

  • JMS935 6 months, 1 weekago

    These slant noses still don’t get the respect they deserve in terms of premium over the stock 930. Not only did they cost a ton more money, but they are also so very rare in relation to the stock fendered 930.

    @delanodp - I have the cd holder and the fuel enrichment control, no clock. Less is more sometimes. my boost gauge is in the clock space also. Going to watch where this one goes as the turbo market seems to be hot.

  • delanodp 6 months, 1 weekago

    @82turboruf yes, there were many different AJR configuration options. Mine is simpler and just has (now) the Clock (934 boost gauge is in the dash where the clock normally goes) and I fitted an AFR Gauge, with the A/C controls. It came originally with an ash tray :-( and cassette holder, both of which I will never use. If I could post pics I would.

  • 82turboruf (registered bidder) 6 months, 2 weeksago

    delanodp- I have a 930s console and steering wheel in my turbo(from AJR). Also have the AJR brochure with the burgundy cut nose featured in the pics. My console looks different than the one here which is lovely as is the car. Also have the "new product option" insert with prices at the time. I think my 4-pipe Borla was purchased thru them also but can't be sure.

  • delanodp 6 months, 2 weeksago

    I'm pretty sure the interior options like the center console, under dash storage, etc were all done by Alan Johnson Racing (AJR) as they were a Porsche certified customization contractor at the time. I have a brochure (my 930 has an AJR console and knee pads) showing console options matching the options on this car. Its a very nice interior and goes a step above stock 930's.

    Very nice 505 Slant. This has brought up before by another on another 505 Flachbau listed on PcarMarket, so I apologize for the redundacy. This is for the writers of PcarMarket, not the seller. The Porsche Sonderwunsch Programme ended in Model Year 1985. Starting in '86 the program was changed to the EXCLUSIVE PROGRAM. How do I know this? I own an '85 930 Sonderwunsch Flachbau and have researched these fabulous cars since I bought it in 1998. The '505' is an option and as such, modifications to the body were done in the Body Shop and then returned to the assembly line for paint, mechanicals and interior. A number of us on the Pelican Parts Porsche Forum have documented years of research on these cars. My UserId is "Werk I" and I think the information listed on the following link will be found most informative.

    In short....Option 505 is NOT Sonderwunsch. Chronologically impossible.
    What DOES makes this car so special is the Exclusive Customizations done in the Interior. These customizations may or may not show up on the build sheet. That's is why I suggested contacting the Porsche Regional Classic Center for info on that particular VIN.

    @tampabaysportscars You may have to contact one of the Regional Porsche Classic Centers to get the info you need.

    Unfortunately it does not show on the COA. We are attempting to see if the local Porsche Dealer can pull the original invoice.

  • Deichenb (registered bidder) 6 months, 2 weeksago

    Good morning Charley I am local to you and this car. The interior is lovely. Do you have any OEM documentation of the Special Wishes interior options (under-dash storage, special console, 935-style boost gauge, etc)? They are not on the underhood sticker nor the COA. (I was hoping to see at least an XF1 with the leather dash.) I realize those are sometimes incomplete, especially with regards to Special Wishes, but the originality of these custom features is important. Thank you in advance.

  • tampabaysportscars (seller) 6 months, 2 weeksago

    Good Catch, I missed it in the commentary, I'll have PCCAR Correct their error. You are correct the interior is awesome
    Charley

  • JMS935 6 months, 2 weeksago

    This interior is awesome in this color, but those are not sport seats.
