1988 Porsche 930 Slantnose Cabriolet

Paul and I were talking this past weekend about how there may be no other car more indicative of wild ’80s styling than a 930 Slantnose Cabriolet. The flared wheel arches, pop-up headlights, massive tail, side grills, and all of this on a cabriolet. The very shape of the car screams 1980s. Top it all off with the driving dynamics of a 930 and these cars had it all! And what do you know, after that discussion one came up for sale. The car featured here, a Grand Prix White 1988 Porsche 930 Slantnose Cabriolet puts all of that on vivid display. A car like this helped defined childhood wonder for those of us who grew up in this period and is certain to have graced more than one bedroom wall poster. With just over 41K miles this factory Slantnose shows very little wear and is certain to provide someone with a nice investment opportunity.

Were this a 1989 930, with the G50 5-speed transmission, then the asking price would be downright reasonable (maybe even a bit low). As it stands, however, it is probably on the high end of where we’d expect a 930 Slantnose to sell. What a difference one year can make. With that said, given the rarity of these cars it wouldn’t be too surprising if it met it’s sale price considering it’s fairly low mileage, looks in very good shape and comes with its CoA. Certainly an excellent choice for cruising around Miami Beach in ostentatious style!
