1988 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe

1988 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe

A couple weeks ago I featured a 930 Slantnose Cabriolet. It was a pretty nice looking example of these wild Turbos and I mentioned in that post the way in which those cars sort of epitomized our sense of ’80s excess. It’s a car that would have been right at home next to the white Testarossa on Miami Vice. Truthfully, the Slantnose is a little too excessive for me in Cabriolet form. Well, excessive might not be the right word, but basically the look doesn’t really wow me even if I do think they are kind of cool cars.

The coupe seems way cooler. As a kid a Slantnose Coupe definitely would have qualified as a poster car. They’re over the top in all the right ways and while they depart significantly from the basics of the 911 design, they aren’t really a departure from Porsche design. Porsche racers long have featured massive wings and sloping fronts, foregoing beauty for functionality and aggression. The 930 Slantnose Coupe provides a showcase of that in road-going form. Here we have a really attractive example from late in 930 production and in a rare color combination of Nougat Brown Metallic over Mahogany leather.

1988 Porsche 930 Slantnose Cabriolet

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.

1988 Porsche 911 Turbo (930) with the factory Slant Nose!!!

You are looking at a gorgeous, NUMBERS MATCHING, extremely well-kept, very exclusive and rare 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo Slant Nose.

This is one of perhaps less than 300 outfitted from the factory as a convertible, turbo and slant nose 930.

It has never been wrecked, flooded, salvaged, or anything of that nature. It is easy to see that it was loved and taken care of since day 1.

This Slant Nose looks, drives, and feels amazing.

The original Fuchs forged wheels are in excellent condition, correct in size, and with brand new tires.

1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

I want to jump back into the 930 mix with an example that, to me, is a surprisingly pretty car. Occasionally I find myself really drawn to colors that, were you to show me just a swatch of the color, I wouldn’t normally think would make for a very nice exterior color on any car. This is just such an example, though strangely the color, at least by name, is not entirely unfamiliar to us. Here we have a Platinum Metallic 1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera with around 54K miles and a very nice Cork leather interior. The combination is particularly attractive, but I want to focus on that exterior. We saw Platinum Metallic last week on this 911SC Weissach Edition, but that version of the color shows darker, more brown than gold, and I have to say I think this version is the far superior color. In the sun it really pops and while it’s definitely a shade of gold it’s not so ostentatious that we might feel uncomfortable being seen in it. The Cork interior really just completes the package.

Questions concerning this 930 have to begin with the rear deck lid. It’s almost spectacularly wrong: wrong tail, the script should be Turbo Carrera, and the paint mostly appears to be peeling away. Really I have no idea what it’s doing on the car, but I’d like to know. Presumably, the original is long gone and that is unfortunate, but I’d at least be curious to know the situation with the paint on the one we see here.…

Carmine Red 1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

Carmine Red 1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

Been a lot of 930s lately. We discussed that fact in a previous post regarding declining 930 values. There are a lot of them on the market and due to that increase in supply prices have come down. It’s certainly not a bad thing for fans of the model! This particular 930 stands apart for a couple of reasons. First, the seller appears to have a pretty good knowledge of its history. That in itself sets this 930 apart as so many of them we see come with little available provenance. Second, it’s a subtly different shade of red in Carmine Red. I like subtle differences. They are the kind of thing that can really draw us in to appreciate the nuances that distinguish it from more standard colors, which in the case of the 930 would be Guards Red. Whether it is a better color than Guards Red will be in the eye of the beholder; it is certainly more rare.

Although the Porsche Turbo is now a natural fixture in the consciousness of car buffs because it is such an iconic car, it was genuinely earth-shattering when it emerged in the mid 1970s. After massive success pioneering the use of turbochargers during the first half of the 1970s in the 917 Can Am and 911-based sports cars, Porsche had the knowhow to bring a reliable and capable turbocharged road car to market. The 930 was hugely impressive when new, and contemporary road testers gushed about its effortless ability to gain speed with deceptive composure, an attribute that seemed positively alien in a period when few drivers had experienced turbocharged cars.

Light Yellow 1979 Porsche 930 – No Reserve

Let’s continue looking at the 930 market and where values currently lie. Perhaps to an even greater degree than yesterday’s example, this paint-to-sample Light Yellow 1979 Porsche 930 with just 14,997 miles on it should provide a window onto that market. It’s up for auction with no reserve, which itself is kind of peculiar with a car like this, but maybe this dealer has had it for a while and is ready to move on. Bidding is at $103,046, a low mark given where some excellent examples have sold, so we’ll have to see where it ends.

1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

We’ve seen a steady slow decline in prices of the Porsche 930 over the past year or so. While restricted primarily to the 1986-1988 model years, which lack the 5-speed manual of the ’89MY and lack the early significance of (especially) the 3.0 liter Turbo, it’s been a general feature of the whole range with only the rarest examples commanding significant premiums. This has coincided with a seeming increase in the number of 930s coming up on the second-hand market. In a sense that’s logical: greater availability of comparable options will reduce values. But it’s also a little strange because why sell if the market is going down? Unless you think those decreases will continue. That is the area I want to have an eye on and the example we see here might be signalling that further recessions in value are likely. Here we have a Silver Metallic 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe, located in New Jersey, with Blue leather interior and just 39,340 miles on it priced at a shade under $90K.

With an asking price of $90K I’m not going to call this 930 inexpensive, or even undervalued, but with fewer than 40K miles and one of the less common interior colors it does seem to me a reasonable price and one that is lower than what we’d have previously seen. At the very least it makes a nice starting point to negotiate. As a counterpoint, we aren’t offered any description – something that seems strange from this dealer – and we see no evidence of documentation beyond the CoA. Without documentation $90K certainly will be too high a price.…

Rob Ida 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

Rob Ida 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

I’m not sure it would be possible to pick worse lighting conditions for photographing this 930. I suppose if it were dark that would be worse. Sorry, I just needed to get that out of the way because I’ve seen other pictures of this car and it looked incredible. A non-metallic, almost matte, Silver will never be the most jaw-dropping of paint choices but it can look good when executed well. Here it is executed well. Really well. I won’t pretend to have any special knowledge of this 930, but there is plenty of information out there for those who want to read about this build. I didn’t know it existed until now.

Rob Ida is the primary man behind Rob Ida Concepts and most well known for his work with custom built hot rods. In some cases they are incredibly cool designs with lines that stretch the eye along the car’s length creating a sense of movement even while the car stands still. But he’s also worked on a few Porsches and here we have for sale his 1986 Porsche 930, which was displayed at SEMA 2016. As SEMA cars go this build actually is quite subtle. For the most part it maintains the basic design of the 930 – why mess with a classic, right? – with the only major change being a revised front end created by Rob Ida himself. The overall package is aggressive, but with very clean lines and not over the top. The wheels are staggered 16″ at the rear and 15″ up front in order to produce a subtle rake. Achieving that rake was the primary motivating force guiding his work and the end result is pretty great. Frankly, it’s probably one of the best 930s I’ve seen.

Paint-to-sample 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera

I post this car knowing full well it must have some sort of problematic history attached to it, but I’ve yet to be able to figure out of what that history consists. Or perhaps the problem simply is that its history has proved too difficult to trace? Either way, this paint-to-sample Salmon Metallic 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera has been for sale for too long at what should be a reasonable price for there not to be something going on in its past that has dissuaded buyers from pursuing it. That it’s currently for sale by a dismantler, while somewhat curious, isn’t of significant concern to me at the moment since I’ve seen this car for sale through other sellers. It was even on auction back in 2015 at the Mecum Anaheim auctions and bid higher than the asking price here so someone was once interested enough. So what’s the situation?

Of course, everything here will come down to what price makes sense.

A full inspection is in need, but this Turbo is said to run with no issues.…

Sonderwunsch 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet

I’ve come upon this one a little late as there isn’t a lot of time left in this auction, but it’s a wild and interesting enough 930 that it’s worth our time. Porsche’s Sonderwunsch (“Special Wishes”) program provides customers with a wide array of features from which they can build themselves a very unique car. In most cases buyers keep things rather sane and choose a specific color for either the exterior or interior, or they select a couple of interesting interior details. Every now and then a customer goes further…quite a bit further. From the outside this 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet shows a few obvious touches with the side strakes and revised front air dam similar to what we see on the Slantnose. When we step into the interior that is when the customization really takes off. Just take a look:

This stunning 1989 Porsche 930 Turbo Cabriolet is one of just a handful of Sonderwunsch Porsche 930 Turbo Cabriolets produced in that model year, and presents beautifully in black with a green custom leather interior. Sonderwunsch translates to special wishes, and serves as Porsche’s in-house customization program that builds bespoke automobiles at the request of the owner. Their range of available services is all inclusive—drivetrain, suspension, exterior or interior—and nothing falls outside the scope of their capability and quality standard.

This 930 Turbo has been factory customized with the following features: custom body work consisting of rear-fender air intakes with horizontal strakes, a special-order (leather-to-sample) green full-leather interior, a center console with extra gauges, leather dash, and additional under-dash glove boxes.

This car has been babied all it’s life.

1979 Porsche 930

This is a strikingly pretty Porsche 930. Wait…pretty isn’t the word I’m looking for. Let’s just say it’s pretty damn striking and a great looking 930. Guards Red makes for a familiar exterior color on Porsches from the ’80s. It is a less prevalent color on Porsches from the ’70s, but still one we see and recognize almost immediately. Where this 1979 Porsche 930’s Guards Red paint raises the bar is that it has Turbo graphics. Ok, graphics aren’t for everyone and maybe they can be a little bit boy racer, but the Turbo graphics on early 930s are a different animal. They’re subtle. In some cases almost so subtle that you miss that they’re even there. They are a fantastic complement to the black trim accents of the 930 in general. Yes you get whooshing turbo script down the rear quarter, but it’s a car from the ’70s and it just feels right. This is the first time I’ve seen the graphics on a Guards Red 930. I’m sold!

1981 Porsche 930

Enthusiasts never like it when manufacturers remove cars from our market, especially when said car is still being produced in other markets. Frustrations are elevated even further when the car is a higher performance model, as is typically the case. It was precisely this scenario in which Porsche’s US customers found themselves mired in the early-’80s when the 930 was no longer being produced for the US market. At the time, Porsche did not want to commit the money to meet stricter emissions requirements so the model was pulled. It was only in 1986 that it returned. On the bright side, since the 930 still was being produced it was not impossible for US customers to find a way to get one. And, of course, in later years importation also represented an opportuntiy. We have just such an example here with this Black 1981 Porsche 930, located in California, with 49,794 miles on it.

1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

There is always a place for subtlety in the car world and while subtle hardly applies to the Porsche 930, among modified examples it’s a term that can make sense. It’s rare that I feature a modified 930 as most of those I come across appear in questionable condition or simply seem overdone. Here we have a definite exception. This 930’s modifications are limited to the engine so from the outside it appears almost completely original. It also happens to come in a very attractive Dark Blue over Tan leather interior. For fans of dark colors it’s a nice alternative to the more common Black 930. Under the skin, a K27 turbo, upgraded intercooler, and Andial fuel system are said to raise power to “more than” 385 hp. That’s a substantial gain over the stock car’s 282 hp and given the already engaging dynamics of a 930 it’s sure to be extremely attention grabbing for any driver!

Another Kermit? 1976 Porsche 930

Another Kermit? 1976 Porsche 930

It seems just about any early 911 that is all green takes on the name ‘Kermit’. We’ve featured what might best represent the true and original example, a Viper Green Metallic 1979 Porsche 911SC. That 911 borrowed its exterior color from VW and it probably comes closest to mimicking the color of the famous frog. The one we see here uses Porsche’s own version of the similarly named color – Viper Green Diamond Metallic. It’s a little bit darker than Kermit himself, but still possesses that same sense of joy that’s really what makes these so appealing to many. That this version happens to be an early 1976 Porsche 930 should absolutely elevate it in the eyes of many collectors.

Colors I’ve never come across will always draw extra attention. On an early 930, I know I’m hooked. So what do we have here? It’s a 1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera in paint-to-sample Gazelle Metallic with a nice looking and contrasting Dark Brown leather interior. The CoA hasn’t been provided here so we lack that verification, but the rarity of the color seems hard to doubt. And, really, what better way to paint a sports car than as a gazelle? Avoid the lions and you’re sure to make spirited progress! Like the Copper Brown Metallic 930 we saw last week the colors here are very much a period-correct combination, and in this case perhaps even more so. Yet each also possesses enough charm to help it excel even outside of its original vintage. This one is not quite gold, not quite brown. It is not quite like any other color I’ve seen.

I could be totally off base here, and I will admit that there is some legwork and research to be done, but I think this 1977 Porsche 930 Turbo Carrera is priced pretty darn well and could be a really nice value. I’ve featured a few 911 Turbos of late that struck me similarly so perhaps values for even these early Turbos are starting to come down some, but it is certainly worth investigating further. The colors appear to be Copper Brown Metallic over a Cork interior, a very period-correct combination that looks really nice on this 930 and presents well inside and out. We’re told it has been repainted, but the interior is said to be entirely original.
