We are pleased to present this rare 1987 Porsche 930 SE Slant-Nose finished in Guards Red over a Champagne "Special Leather" interior. Said to have been originally purchased by a U.S. servicemember stationed in Germany, this Turbo was ordered through Porsche’s Sonderwunsche (Special Wishes) program with a factory power kit, the iconic Slant-Nose configuration, and a bespoke interior with custom Sport Seats and burlwood trim. As a Special Wishes car, this 930SE lacks the “M505” option code for the Slant-Nose as it was pulled aside from the production line to undergo custom modifications at Werk 1. This Turbo was eventually brought back to the United States where it was purchased by the seller in Florida in June of 2018. It has been regularly serviced ever since and has participated in various concours events including two DRT shows where it won awards for Best of Class as well as Best of Show. Highlighting incredibly unique Special Wishes options and period-correct 3-piece BBS wheels, this 930 SE is now being offered for auction with approximately 46k-miles showing on the odometer accompanied by the original owner’s manuals, Special Wishes literature, and official correspondence with Porsche confirming the authenticity of the vehicle.
This Turbo is finished in the traditional shade of Guards Red, and the only noted imperfections are some minor signs of road-going wear on the nose and rear fenders. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery. The handbuilt Slant-Nose configuration includes a redesigned front valence, flat vented front fenders, pop-up headlights, boxed rocker panels, and distinctive rear fender air intakes. Other exterior highlights include European side marker lights, special quad exhaust tips, and 16” 3-piece BBS RS wheels which were reportedly available as an option through the Special Wishes program. These wheels are date-stamped from 1986 and are currently dressed in Goodyear Eagle F1 tires.
Inside, the cabin is appointed with Champagne "Special Leather", burlwood veneers, and heated/power Sport Seats with custom piping. Other unique details include a “Type-F” 3-spoke steering wheel, a burlwood shift knob, a custom center console with additional gauges, storage pockets under the dashboard, a coin tray in the driver's door panel, and a 935-style HK LED boost gauge. The original Sony radio and slimline EQ and have been retained, although the radio is currently disconnected. A breakdown of the factory specifications on the original build sticker is provided below:
The air-cooled 3.3L turbocharged flat-six engine is paired with a 4-speed manual gearbox and factory optioned limited-slip differential. This 930 SE is also said to have been equipped with a factory power kit which raises the output to 330 HP through the use of a larger intercooler, higher-lift cams, a revised exhaust system, and increased boost pressure. Regular oil services have been carried out by the current owner and there are no outstanding maintenance items reported.
This sale will include the original owner’s manuals, toolkit, official Special Wishes literature, concours awards, and email correspondence from a Porsche representative confirming the car’s authenticity. Likely a one-of-a-kind configuration, this incredibly unique 930 SE offers a very special opportunity for any air-cooled Porsche collector.
