1988 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe

This 930 might be in the best condition I can recall seeing one. The mileage is pretty darn low at only 11,300 miles so maybe this shouldn’t come as a surprise, but even still low miles does not always equate to excellent condition. I know not everyone likes the Slantnose option on these cars, but like it or not I think we can all appreciate how good this one looks. And for those us, myself included, who are fans of the Slantnose, this 930 provides you with something to spend a good deal of time inspecting.

It’s a Cassis Red Metallic 1988 Porsche 930 Coupe with the M505 Slantnose option. It’s stated to be only 1 of 2 such cars painted Cassis Red Metallic (I have no idea if that’s true) and it has a contrasting Linen and Burgundy interior. Pretty much all of the Slantnose 930s are rare and the Coupe easily is the best looking of the various models. This one is immaculate.

We see a lot of Cassis Red 911s equipped with a Burgundy interior. It’s a nice enough combination and in general I really like the Burgundy interiors from this era. But the two colors are just a little too similar so while it isn’t monotone, there also isn’t a lot of contrast. On this 930, the use the Linen for most of the seating and carpets really changes that and I like it a lot! I can’t say with complete certainty that this would be my favorite combination for Cassis Red, but I like it here and it is one of the better ones I’ve seen. As noted above, all of the interior looks in great shape; it’s clean, crisp, and appears original.

Not everything seems perfect though since there are a few questions I would have. Mostly I think it’s just verifying originality and specification given the very high asking price. I am curious about the engine work. Given the very low miles you wouldn’t really expect any major work to be necessary. Perhaps the work stated here was just refreshing to make sure everything was flawless and working perfectly prior to sale. We are told that it comes with a documented service history and that also might shed some light on the work performed.

Mostly I find this 930 a joy to look at. The market obviously will be quite limited because of the price and that you can’t really drive it given the premium for the low miles. But it’s a great collector piece and I’m sure its next owner certainly will enjoy being able to gaze upon the unique lines of the Slantnose.

  2. I hate slantnoses, but the color and condition on this are sublime. Wouldn’t even consider it at this price, however. ’94 3.6 Turbo over this all day long….
