1988 Porsche 930 Slantnose Cabriolet

It feels like it’s been a while since I featured a Slantnose. They aren’t incredibly common by any means, but we also come across them fairly frequently. Admittedly a lot of them aren’t in great shape or have completely insane pricing. This one still seems priced high, but it at least comes in at a point that we can work with and the condition looks very good. Among ’80s machinery the Slantnose typifies the excess that defined parts of that decade. I can’t recall whether the 930 itself was considered an exotic; relative to the Ferraris and Lamborghinis of the day a 930 is almost tame in its appearance. The Slantnose is a different animal though, and the Slantnose Cabriolet really takes those excesses to their limits. With the sloping front, a wide array of vents and strakes, and a massive whale tail, all found on a car where the top went down these definitely could be considered an exotic. It’s a car to be seen in and even today will attract plenty of notice.

In a nutshell, this is a perfect opportunity to get your hands on a piece of automotive history, as very few of these Slant Nose 930’s were built and even fewer are such great examples.
Even 29 years later, by today’s standards, this Porsche is very much still a gorgeous, agile, and extremely fun to drive sports car. Even offering a driving experience that tops some of today’s sports cars.

If you are a car enthusiast, and in the market for a classic, extremely well-kept, and low-mile Porsche, then this Turbo Slant Nose is the car for you. I think that you would be hard pressed to find a similar Porsche that is in as great condition, and low-mileage, as this one.

Buy with confidence, you will not be disappointed.

With the influx of 930s onto the market the examples that still possess collector appeal might get lost in the shuffle. That applies to the Slantnose as well, though always to a lesser degree as they begin a step above a standard 930 from the start. Black is a pretty common exterior color on these, but the Silver Grey interior provides a nice change of pace. That’s especially true with the top down as the seat backs peak above the body of the car. I wouldn’t naturally be drawn to this as an interior color, but here the contrast works to nice effect. And the condition of that interior looks quite good. Some minor wear shows to the seats, but certainly not enough to warrant much concern given the age and mileage of the car. It also appears entirely original. The exterior presents similarly with the paint and trim pieces all looking in good condition. It seems evident that this 930 has seen a good deal of care during its life.

Even given these positives, I don’t know if there’s much chance of it selling at this price. The mileage is pretty low and it appears to possess a decent amount of documentation, but the 930 market in general just doesn’t have the strength it once had. Were it a ’89 then we’d have something. We’ll have to wait and see. Altogether this 930 Slantnose does present well and looks to be a nice example of one of the more audacious cars Porsche produced during this period.
