1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose

A Black Slantnose 930: the poster boy of ’80s flamboyance and excess. There are a lot of things I love about these cars. Derived from the Porsche 935 racer, the Slantnose came along as an option for the 930 coupe. Gone were the iconic front headlamps so familiar to fans of the 911, replaced by a sloping front end with pop-up lights. While the shape might be aerodynamically sensible, porschephiles remain divided on the Slantnose’s appeal, but it is undeniable that the unique shape is one that can be taken in for quite some time. A 930 itself would rarely be a car for those who are faint of heart and a Slantnose 930 turns the attention-getting dial well upward. The particular example featured here comes from the 1987 model year and sits with just 38,800 miles.

The Slantnose tends to command a decent premium over a traditional 930, though it may take time to find the right buyer. The modifications to this car, even though the original parts are included, will likely dissuade some potential buyers, but this should still fetch a pretty good price. At it’s current bidding of $68,100 this would represent a decent value given the low mileage, assuming everything is mechanically sound, so I would normally expect this price to rise quite a bit more.
