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.

1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose Cabriolet

Last week I presented a 930 Slantnose that I thought was about as ’80s as a Porsche could get. While I don’t think this one pushes beyond it, it certainly brings with it its own ’80s appeal and includes elements that 930 Coupe lacked.

Here we have a Cassis Red Metallic 1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose Cabriolet with just 45,400 miles on it. The very fact that it’s a Cabriolet, rather than a Coupe, garners it an extra dose of excess in appearance. The Slantnose, side strakes, and massive spoiler when paired with a top-down environment really bring a peculiarity to the design that we don’t often see. The chrome wheels take it over the top. The full wood dash too strikes me as very much an ’80s sort of feature. Not that a wood dash itself dates the car, but when fitted to a Slantnose 911 Turbo it creates a disjunction combining luxury and aggression that feels very at home in the time period. It’s all quite fascinating, really.

Tuner Tuesday: 1985 Porsche 930 Slantnose

Have you been looking for the most ’80s Porsche you can find? Not just an ’80s model, but one that has taken the extra steps to modify it and add those little details that really showcase the time period? We’ve got just the car for you. Here we have a Black 1985 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe. The Slantnose itself always has been right at home in the ’80s exhibiting the general sense of excess in design with which we’re all familiar from those days. We dealt with the issue of authenticating the Slantnose conversion in our feature of this Slantnose and the issue presents itself again here as well. As the seller notes it isn’t until the ’87MY that these determinations become much easier.

The details don’t stop there though. This is more than just a Slantnose and especially once we step into the interior things really get interesting. The history of how this 930 came to be in its current state are a little fuzzy, but it’s had a good bit of work and houses some nice RUF upgrades. Let’s take a look:

1982 Porsche 930 Slantnose

We feature the Slantnose pretty frequently around here. Mostly that’s because I like them a lot – especially the coupes. Most of those, however, come from the final few years of 930 production when the factory M505 option was made available. We definitely always have an eye out for one of the rare, and very valuable, examples from 1989. Of lesser frequency (and I’ll admit we may not have featured one at all) are the earlier Slantnose Turbos from before they were made an official factory option. As the seller of this particular 930 alludes, it isn’t always easy to verify such builds. Given the frequency with which we see aftermarket Slantnose 911s – with sometimes very unreasonable prices and uncertain provenance – it is in many cases best to steer clear.

However, that doesn’t mean we should ignore them altogether. Good ones exist and sometimes we see one that combines that audacious sloping front end with rarely seen colors and a price that doesn’t make us shake our head. I think this one fits that bill: a Chiffon White 1982 Porsche 930 Slantnose, located in California, with Brown leather interior (including factory sport seats) and 83,800 miles on it.

1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Slantnose

With the January auctions approaching I always like to check in on what sorts of interesting cars will be crossing the blocks this year. Even though this auction is still a couple weeks away, I couldn’t resist posting this now. I could be wrong, but I think this is the only air-cooled 911 model I have never featured. It’s one of the rarest 911 models there is. We’ve featured the North American only Turbo S Package car previously, of which there were only 17 produced. For this model there are even fewer.

This is a Japanese market 1994 Porsche 911 Turbo S Slantnose, also known as the X83 Turbo S. And, yes, I do mean Slantnose and not Flatnose. Of the various markets only Japan received the 935-derived slantnose that was commonly found on the 930. The rest of the world received either the 968-derived flatnose or the standard 964 front of the Turbo S Package. Only 10 Slantnose Turbo S were produced, all nearly identical with Polar Silver Metallic exterior and Black interior. The biggest difference among the 10 was the choice of rear wing: you could have either the standard Turbo rear spoiler or for a little extra money you could choose the spoiler from the 3.8 Carrera RS. 4 buyers chose the RS wing.

I have never seen one for sale. Until now. This one will be up for auction at Gooding and Company’s Scottsdale Auctions on January 19 & 20.

Tuner Tuesday: 1993 Porsche 911 RS America Gemballa Slantnose

Gemballa has been around for quite a while. Since the early 80’s they’ve been creating designs for a wide variety of Porsches with a few Mercedes and Ferraris thrown in as well. Honestly, most of their designs I haven’t much liked. I like over the top – I mean I’m a fan of RWB – but Gemballa has always seemed over the top in a way that I found unappealing. It’s a fine line for tuners to walk and built entirely upon subjectivity; some find the right balance, some miss the mark.

Here we have one that I do like. At least for the most part. Based off the 911 RS America, this Gemballa build was to serve as a showcase car and, if we’re to believe the ad, demonstrate the more refined style they were hoping to put forth once the excesses of the ’80s were behind them. It’s still fairly over the top, but not too crazy and its likeness to the Flatnose Turbo S makes it look like something the factory may have even produced. It’s sort of a melding of the Turbo S and the 3.8 Carrera RSR, both highly sought after machines that turn the heads of just about anyone who sees one. I imagine this Gemballa will do the same.

Before Singer’s amazing creations, before RWB’s wide bodies, before Magnus Walker officially made it cool to NOT be a typical Porsche guy, before TechArt, there was Uwe Gemballa.

The Gemballa’s of the 80’s were radical creations with massive body kits and interior customization. As Gemballa moved into the 90’s they evolved into a more performance focused company with more subtle streamlined body work. This car is the result.

What I know about this car and its history came from the previous owner, a copy of the Gemballa RSR spec sheet, and from the July 1995 issue of Eurosport Car magazine in which this car was featured. The car’s history goes like this: When Gemballa opened in California they needed a vehicle to showcase what services they were going to offer. They chose this RS America. The car was flown to Germany, the modifications were done at Gemballa and the car was returned to California.

There is no other RS America modified like this that I know of. It’s exclusive, unique, fast, and loud.

I have included below the details of the condition and just some details of the cars history, based on the information I have. The car is nice overall but I will try and list everything, no matter how small, that a buyer could be critical of and condition mentioned is my opinion only. Consider the condition to be nice unless specifically noted otherwise. I’m going to be really picky, but I may have missed something

Additional pictures available at this link, including of most mentioned flaws, and they may show up in reverse order: 1070.photobucket.com/user/CLWTUSKEN/library/1993%20RS%20AMERICA%20GEMBALLA%20RSR?sort=2&page=1

Owners: I have owned this car since 2003. The Carfax shows I’m the third owner. I originally thought that I showed up as 3rd on Carfax due to a title change between states or spouses when the previous owner moved to Florida ( it shows 2nd ownership for only 15 days ). I have since found the original owners name in the Maintenance log, so I’m unsure of the timeline but I believe the 15 days is incorrect and only represents the time owned in Florida.

Fun Fact: In 2005 I attended Porsche Parade in Hershey, PA. I was honored to lead the largest gathering ever of Porsche RS America’s up the hill to the Hershey hotel. You can find the article about that here: rsamerica.net/articles/member/keithv_parade_05_rsa_corral.htm

VIN / Production #: WP0AB2967PS418054 / the 54th RS America built , M-Date 3/92

Mileage: 16,937 at picture time, this will increase slightly…..

RS America options: Out of the 4 available factory options, LSD, Sunroof, A/C and Cassette Radio, this car originally came with 2: Limited Slip Differential ( 220 ) and Sunroof ( 650 ). The article stated that Gemballa added the A/C and Alpine CD player.

Color = Grand Prix White

Per the ID label this car was also originally taken as a European Delivery

Gemballa Modifications per sheet and article:

Slant-Nose w/ flush headlight glass / poly-ellipsoid halogen lights

Sportster front skirt and side skirts with air intakes

Factory Metal quarter panels, Turbo sized fender flares on rear, ported for engine cooling

RSR Carbon fiber air channels added to ported front bumper for brake cooling ( replaced fog lamps )

Rear 3 piece bumper assembly with dual exhaust ports

3.8 RSR rear spoiler with adjustable carbon fiber middle

18” Speedline RSR CUP DESIGN 3 piece wheels 9×18 & 11×18 polished lip

MOTOR: the Gemballa spec sheet reads: “3.8 RSR Engine, all factory racing components.” The article reads: “Using Porsche parts throughout, the engine was upped from a stock 250 horsepower to a pavement ripping 375 hp. Likewise, torque was increased from 229 ft-lbs. to 282 ft.-lbs.. To maximize power output the redline was raised to 7150 rpm. A two pipe exhaust system originally used on the 965 Turbo, was added to relieve back pressure/ A larger throttle, 8mm wider in diameter, was substituted, as were valve spring caps and camshafts. The engine’s displacement was increased to 3.81 litres using original RSR parts and backed by an RSR clutch.”

I did not receive any maintenance history paperwork from the previous owner. At some point he had some repairs to the motor, although I don’t know the exact details. I’m not sure if Gemballa USA is who worked on it or not, but I know they know about it.

In May I just had almost $5k worth of services done: New battery, filters, brakes, fuel sender, various gaskets, washers, seals, o-rings, belts, etc.

Interior: The dash, headliner, door panels, are all in excellent condition. The drivers seat shows slight wear as expected. The seat backs show some paint removal where they come in contact with the roll cage. This happens when the seats are pushed back that far. See picture.

The left side/thigh support of the drivers seat is loose, but it actually makes getting in and out easier. There is also a plastic trim piece missing from the side of this seat.

Boot/Trunk: New Battery. Carpet in good condition, tool kit and spare tire. See picture. The boot / trunk struts need replaced, they no longer hold it open.

Accidents: The car has never been in an accident that I know of. When I purchased the car there was an outward dent in the trunk lid, where the previous owner had closed the lid and a brush handle was sticking up. I had this fixed locally by Superior Auto Body.

Track: I personally have never had the car on a track but I did autocross it once locally. The previous owner did say he tracked the car some but I don’t know details / frequency.

Exterior: I have always kept the car stored inside in a climate controlled garage. The paint is in good condition with imperfections as mentioned:

There are some, ( 4 – I believe ) minor cracks/chips in the windshield, these happened with the previous owner.

There are small rock chips / scuffs on front end skirt, as well as in the paint between the rear wide body air intake vents and the bottom of the car, and also around air intake on the side skirts. The passenger side seemed more affected, there is also a small ding in the passenger side air duct. There are 4 small dot size chips on the wing on the passenger side. See pictures.

On the top of the passenger door there is a small area where the 1st layer of paint is missing, about 4mm or 5mm, isn’t very noticeable as it’s white / white.

There is a tiny crack, about 4mm or 5mm developing on top of front drivers fender. See picture.

There is a crack inside the air intake on the rear driver’s side wide body. See picture.

There is a small crack inside the air intake on the passenger’s side wide body. See picture.

There is a small spider web crack in the paint on the passengers rear flare, approx. 1 cm. See picture.

On the grill area of the rear wing, there are 3 places where there are small cracks. There are 18 of these small support areas between the grill lines, the last 3 towards the back are cracked, all in the same spot as this seems to be the area with the most flex. They don’t affect anything physical, just a cosmetic issue. See picture.

The light to the right of the license plate is loose and there are some small cracks in the corner of the opening for this light.

Wheels: There is minor curb rash on some wheels, one wheel has a minor dent on the lip. The tires are Michelin Pilot Sport 235/40ZR18 & 295/30ZR19 and while they have plenty of tread they are older tires. I’d have to check what year I had them put on but you should put some fresh rubber on before doing any real driving.

Sunroof: As of 8/19/17, the sunroof now has a small issue closing. While I was making sure everything worked on the car, a tiny plastic piece on the drivers side of the sunroof mechanism broke. This small piece helped allow the plastic piece that pops up when opened, to go down slightly when closing. So right now you have to use your hand to hold it down until the sunroof slides over it. Hopefully a cheap fix, I’ll try and have it looked at as soon as I have time.

Elec / Lights: All Head lights work. Both Blinkers work. Parking lights work. Both interior domes work. 2 horn buttons on steering wheel, left one works, right one doesn’t..

Other included items, extra’s, etc.:

The original copy of Eurosport Car magazine from July 1995 featuring this car, plus digital copies of the article.

An original OEM muffler and exhaust tip ( p/n 964.111.046.05 ) will be included with the car. See pic.

Ring and Pinion, 31:9 (3.44) These extras came to me with the car, I’ve never had any gear work done.

Sparco harnesses, Red, 3”/2”. See picture. These look orange in the pic, but it’s just the light. They are red and like new, I personally have never used or even installed them.

2 small Roll Cage pieces, some paint chips ( never used or installed since I’ve owned it ) See pic.

The original Gemballa floor mats were replaced but will be included. See picture.

Brand new floor mats, never opened. 964.551.015.00.5FV , 964.551.012.01.5FV , 964.551.021.00.5FV

A custom bra with headlight and mirror covers ( never used or installed since I’ve owned it ) See pic.

A spare set of the headlight glass for the front fenders will be included – THESE ARE VERY RARE. My wife bought these many years ago from Heinz at Gemballa USA and I believe at the time he told her they were his last set. We bought them just to have as backups.

That this 911 was an RS America prior to its build probably isn’t too relevant at this point, but at least it provided a nice starting point for all of the work. The seller suggests it’s the only RS America with this Gemballa conversion, which is probably pretty likely, and I’m curious how many other 964s at all were converted, if any. So this is definitely a rare find. The mileage is very low and it generally looks pretty good. Add in a substantial boost in power – stated to be 385 hp – and you’ve got a machine with the performance to match its much more aggressive looks!

While there are plenty of details we’d probably like about its history and previous ownership the seller has been fairly straightforward in passing along what he knows about the car as well as what he doesn’t know. Or, at least, as well as you can pass along information you don’t know. Given the mileage we’d generally expect near flawless condition, but there are a few flaws and minor niggles here and there. There’s not too much that would deeply trouble us, but the statements about engine work performed by a previous owner certainly should spark some further investigation. It’s a high-strung machine so engine work wouldn’t necessarily be unexpected, but with fewer than 17K miles we might question whether it was abused. Naturally, a PPI is a must.

So how much should this extra performance, exclusivity, and added cachet of the Gemballa name be worth? So far, not that much as bidding sits at only $60,100. I would imagine there’s plenty of hesitation given everything needing verification and that may restrain any bidding for a little while. There are still a good number of days left on the auction so we may see this number rise. We’ll certainly have to see it rise before there’s a sale. The combination of such a longstanding name in the tuning world and the power and performance of this build should be enough to bring things up. We’ll just have to see how desirable this 964 now is.

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.

This is meticulously maintained car to add to your collection !! This is a factory Slantnose option not a aftermarket option !!!!

I don’t see Slantnose 930s come up for sale quite as often these days as I did in the past. I suspect that’s mostly due to the 930 market retreating some and given the general desirability of these rare factory versions it shouldn’t surprise us if those holding on to them would like to wait a little longer. This one appears to be priced as if the market hadn’t really changed so unless I’ve missed a few big sales recently I don’t expect it’s going anywhere anytime soon. I certainly don’t expect it to sell without pristine originality at this price.

So that’s the negative side. This does look like a very nice example though and one that has been well maintained. That in itself has a good bit of value since many of the Slantnose 930s I’ve seen lately haven’t been in the best shape. We will, of course, want to know more about its history and records as we can’t just assume everything is great here, but hopefully it will all check out. The asking price probably is still too high, but for those who might really desire to have one of these Turbos this might not be a bad place to start.

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.

7JX16 Forged Alloy Wheels, 205/55VR16 Tires in the front and the 9JX16Forged Alloy Wheels, 245/45VR16 Tires in the back.

It comes in a gorgeous Black exterior paint coat over Silver/Gray Leather Interior.

The paint is smooth and glossy and really looks amazing showing MUCH LESS than normal wear for a car this age. No dents, damage, rust or blemishes!

Mechanically it runs strong and has no known faults.

The top is in excellent condition and fully functioning.

Included in the sale are a set of factory carpet floor mats, full spare tire kit, original maintenance & service history records, a history report, and the owner’s manuals. We also have the Certificate of Authenticity as well as a picture of the duplicate window sticker, both of which show the slant nose option, which was a ~$29,595 option at the time.

MSRP on this 1988 911 Turbo Cabriolet was $118,298 !!!

OVER 80 PHOTOS ARE INCLUDED FOR YOUR VIEWING PLEASURE!

This 911 Turbo Slant Nose comes very well equipped and includes:

930S Slant Nose Package

Leather Interior

Sport Seats W/ Electric Height Adjustment

Heated Seats

Limited Slip Differential

16″ Turbo Forged Alloy Wheels w/ Performance Tires (All Original FUCHS)

Upgraded Stereo

Power Operated Top

Full Power Options

Not to mention a very impressive and smooth running 3.3L Horizontally Opposed 6-Cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission, and much more..

Mechanically this Porsche runs perfectly and has no known faults. It has been properly serviced, maintained, and loved since day one. It has spent the majority of its life in Florida, garage kept, and has never seen snow.

In a nutshell, this is a perfect opportunity to get your hands on a piece of automotive history, as very few of these Slant Nose 930’s were built and even fewer are such great examples.
Even 29 years later, by today’s standards, this Porsche is very much still a gorgeous, agile, and extremely fun to drive sports car. Even offering a driving experience that tops some of today’s sports cars.

If you are a car enthusiast, and in the market for a classic, extremely well-kept, and low-mile Porsche, then this Turbo Slant Nose is the car for you. I think that you would be hard pressed to find a similar Porsche that is in as great condition, and low-mileage, as this one.

Buy with confidence, you will not be disappointed.

Please call me if have any questions or concerns 718-372-6555 X8001 Steven Schmidt

With the influx of 930s onto the market the examples that still possess collector appeal might get lost in the shuffle. That applies to the Slantnose as well, though always to a lesser degree as they begin a step above a standard 930 from the start. Black is a pretty common exterior color on these, but the Silver Grey interior provides a nice change of pace. That’s especially true with the top down as the seat backs peak above the body of the car. I wouldn’t naturally be drawn to this as an interior color, but here the contrast works to nice effect. And the condition of that interior looks quite good. Some minor wear shows to the seats, but certainly not enough to warrant much concern given the age and mileage of the car. It also appears entirely original. The exterior presents similarly with the paint and trim pieces all looking in good condition. It seems evident that this 930 has seen a good deal of care during its life.

Even given these positives, I don’t know if there’s much chance of it selling at this price. The mileage is pretty low and it appears to possess a decent amount of documentation, but the 930 market in general just doesn’t have the strength it once had. Were it a ’89 then we’d have something. We’ll have to wait and see. Altogether this 930 Slantnose does present well and looks to be a nice example of one of the more audacious cars Porsche produced during this period.

Tuner Tuesday: 1984 Porsche DP 935-Kremer G5 Street 2

When considering 1980s modified Porsches, there’s visually fine line between a poorly executed garage swap and a full-blood, racing heritage model. Many will be familiar with the name DP Motorsports, and though rare we have featured quite a few of the DP935 model. In fact, Rob looked at a pretty blue one earlier this year. However, while some love the racing-inspired lines and livery, many more detest the somewhat poser status. I say “somewhat”, because more often than not we’ve seen these DP 935s feature upgraded powertrains. But if you really want the chops to back up the Le Mans-ready looks of the DP 935, there was really only one place to turn – the Kremer G5 Street 2:

1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe

I’ll return now to one of my favorite divisive cars, a Slantnose Porsche 930. The 930 itself, of course, is much beloved and admired. Remove the iconic 911 front end and replace it with the 935-derived Slantnose and reactions become more mixed. For some, like myself, it’s the perfect complement to the 930’s sometimes diabolical dynamics, bringing an extra note of aggression to an already aggressive car. It’s also over-the-top in its style in a way that seems fitting for this Turbo from the ’80s. At least on the 930 Coupe. But I do understand the dilemma and why some may not care for it. Either way, the factory examples tend to be pretty highly prized on the 930 market and the example here might serve us as a useful barometer for how that market is currently holding up. The price is very high, but the condition looks quite good and the mileage is pretty low so there should be some interest. So here we have a Black 1987 Porsche 911 Slantnose Coupe, located in Florida, with Beige leather interior and around 18,300 miles on it.
