1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe

I know not everyone likes these cars. When you take a shape as iconic and as loved as that of the 911 and you alter its profile there are going to be those who do not share much enthusiasm for such a creation. When the alteration is to perhaps the most recognizable portion of that original design, well, then you really might engender divisiveness. That’s pretty much exactly what the Slantnose option does to the 911.

The round headlights projecting forward from the hood are now gone in favor of a more sloped front borrowed from the 935. That the Slantnose is borrowed from what was itself an iconic Porsche does help take the sting away for those who prefer the original 911 design. Still, not everyone is a fan. I, however, am a fan, especially of the Coupe where all of the lines work well together. As part of the ’80s and the sometimes wild designs we saw on cars of that day the Slantnose fits in quite well and it absolutely stands out as a car from that period. It may not entirely look like a 911, but there’s still no mistaking it. Here we have a factory example: a Guards Red 1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe, located in New York, with just under 50K miles on it.

Feature Listing: 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo

Yesterday we presented a very nice 993 twin-turbo and in that post I spoke of my conflicting desires between those beautiful 993s and the original Turbo, the 930. So let’s turn our attention to the 930 as this presents us a nice opportunity for comparison. This triple Black 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe is offered by the same seller as the 993, which means the condition of the car is good and the price sits on the more reasonable side when factoring in condition and mileage. As we’ve discussed quite a bit on these pages the 930 market definitely has moved downward for all but the best cars, but the desirability of the model itself remains strong. There are a lot of them out there with sub-$100K price tags so it takes very low miles or rare colors/options to really attract notice. I do think that makes this the tougher sell of the two cars, but for someone like me, whose heart remains strongly tied to these iconic ’80s Turbos, that allure might be too strong to overcome, tempting us toward the dark side.…

1987 Porsche 930 Coupe

I found this too funny to pass by. There are many ways to advertise a car, and especially on a site like eBay when you can scroll through hundreds of thumbnails you need something to get readers to pause during that initial view and want to take a second look. With little space available, most sellers say the typical things, sometimes there’s very useful information like “paint to sample” or “special order” (which, of course, may or may not be true), and then there is this one. “Beautiful carpets!” (I’ve ignored the typo) I must say that’s not the typical selling point, but it made me laugh and look more closely at this Venetian Blue Metallic 1987 Porsche 930 Coupe. And, hey, the carpets do look great!

1986 Porsche 930 Coupe

I’ve featured a few white 911s over the past weeks and I will return to that theme here with this Grand Prix White 1986 Porsche 930 Coupe. Truth be told, this one is far more about the interior than it is the white exterior. And boy does that interior create contrast! It is a to-sample Lobster Red leatherette. Porsche has offered plenty of bright red interior colors over the years and I think Lobster comes across as the brightest. Perhaps most gaudy is a better expression? Regardless, there is a hint of orange to the color – hence the name Lobster – that takes the shade to another level as compared with Can-can Red or Lipstick Red, which are really just a deep red. While all red interiors can be a little divisive, I would imagine Lobster Red is the most so. Here, where it’s contrasted with a white exterior, the almost blinding nature of the color really shows!

1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet with 1,313 miles

Ah, the price you pay for low mileage. I come across a lot of cars with seemingly outrageous price tags. Most are good for a chuckle and then I move on to the next car. Some are just confusing. Others make me pause and wonder. Those are usually the cars actually possessing a reason for that high price. In every case, however, they are something to check out just to figure out what is going on. The situation with this car, a 1989 Porsche 930 Cabriolet with a mere 1,313 miles on the clock, is a straightforward confluence of features. Ultra-low mileage, final-year of the 930, and the only year the 930 came equipped with a 5-speed transmission. It even comes in a nice color, though not one that is especially rare. The question is not whether a high price is warranted, but rather how high a price. Perhaps here we’ll find out.

As we’ve all become aware, the air-cooled 911 market is not what it used to be. However, there has been some evidence that very rare and/or low-mileage examples have been spared from the market’s recession. But even those cars aren’t hitting insane prices so I do wonder whether this one will have a shot. So about this one. Let’s assume the appropriate documentation exists to validate the mileage and other aspects of its history. Without that the price has no chance. Last year this car was bid to $275K when on auction at Mecum Monterey. That’s still a good bit away from this asking price and with the market cooling I don’t know if we can expect more.…

1989 Porsche 930 Coupe

Here’s another high-mileage Porsche that looks in excellent condition. Except this time, rather than a standard 911 we have a final-year Porsche 930. It’s had two owners, both in California, and it sounds like the first owner is responsible for most of these miles. We don’t hear much about its maintenance or storage – we are shown a stack of records and it is said to be documented from the beginning – but regardless of the specific details of how it has been cared for we can see that it has been cared for quite well. As an opportunity for a 930 with the one-year-only 5-speed manual this one should come in at a pretty nice value.

Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 167,600 mi
Price: Reserve Auction

One of 637 produced, the 1989 turbo is the last of the 930 series and only year with the 5 speed manual. This particular car, s/n 202 was sold new at Hoehn Porsche in San Diego to Paula; Paula drove the car regularly and based on my conversation with her it never let her down. The 2nd owner, Uncle Turbo owned the car for a number of years, but kept the mileage to a minimum; it resided north of Los Angeles with it’s second and final owner.

The car is ordered properly as Guards Red over black partial leather. Sport seats with power adjustments, short shift kit, and limited slip differential. The original vin stickers are on the doors, hood, and both fenders, matching of course. Engine is matching numbers to the COA as well.

This particular car drives nicely, handles well, and shifts properly. The car has about 167,600 miles (mostly from the original owner).

1981 Porsche 930

There are going to be lots of questions about this 1981 Porsche 930. A lot of potentially interested Porsche buyers will move on quickly as some of the information we already have will disqualify this 930 from their consideration. Ultimately, everything will come down to whether the price is right and as with any such car the hope is that its various foibles will yield a perfectly good driver-quality 930 for a lot less money than many comparable, and much more original, examples.

Let’s get to the good stuff first: for one, it looks great! The color combination is really attractive, I’m a big fan of the Turbo graphics (though I don’t think they’re original given the model year), and the mileage is quite low. While the photos look a fair bit touched up, most everything presents well. For an early RoW 930 this looks like a nice example.

VIN WP0ZZZ93ZBS000227

Notice the price of 930’s lately? Here’s a chance to own one for a reasonable price. It’s not perfect, but in some ways that’s not a bad thing.

The interior has been updated with 993 parts and the car looks great with the Turbo graphics.

We just did an engine out service of the engine and gearbox. We replaced the syncro’s in the transmission and did a full tune-up, including valve adjustment; the motor was re-sealed as well.

The car runs well and is great fun to drive.

Unfortunately, there is no paperwork to back up the mileage claim.

This is a driver quality car, not a show car and it’s priced accordingly.

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

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.

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

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.…
