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.
Does the car come with a coke spoon?
A quarter mill asking price. The seller missed the recent top of the 911 market by about 18 months and this car would still not have pulled those dollars IMHO.
