The poster car: we all had them on our wall when growing up. Rarely subtle, these were cars that stunned you visually and were almost always very fast. At least, that was my wall. The most common poster in the ’80s was probably the Countach, which still today looks insane. The Countach, however, was insane. Porsche’s road-going version of Countach excessiveness was the 930 Slantnose, but because it was based off of the very streetable 911 it lacked much of the insanity of the Countach. The appearance of the 930 itself was hardly subtle and in the guise of the Slantnose all hints of subtlety went out the window. Unsurprisingly, given the iconic nature of the 911’s front end, not everyone is a fan of the Slantnose, but their rarity makes them quite highly prized by collectors. The example here is a Guards Red 1989 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe, located in California, with Tan interior and only 28,115 miles.

The 911 Carrera 3.2 was considered by many to be the final link to the original 911 before newer safety and emissions regulations started to take hold in the 1990s which would eventually see the phasing out of the air-cooled motor. It certainly is one of my favorites, with the ultra-rare Club Sport lightweight special being my favorite. While a Club Sport is one of the most valuable of all 3.2 variants, there are plenty of other 3.2s to consider as an optimal starting point for your air-cooled obsession. We’ll take a look at a few different examples, including a 930 of the same era, starting off with this Grand Prix White Targa for sale in Miami.
