1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe

Porsche’s 935-derived Slantnose option, made available throughout most of the ’80s, remains a polarizing design among 911 enthusiasts. Because it alters the iconic profile of the 911, through the removal of its forward-pointing head lamps, some have always felt it was a detraction rather than enhancement. Yet, because it replaced that shape with the equally iconic front of the 935 racer the Slantnose does lend an added dose of aggression and purpose to what was already a notable design. It pushes the limits of what we consider over-the-top and epitomizes the excesses we saw in ’80s design. I happen to be a big fan of the design – at least on the Coupe. It is audacious, there is no doubt about that, but if there was ever a car to benefit from an audacious design the 930 fits that mold as well as any other. The second-hand market has found them extremely attractive as well as they tend to garner premiums over a similar condition non-Slatnose 930. The example here is a very striking Grand Prix White 1987 Porsche 930 Slantnose Coupe, located in California, with Bordeaux interior and only 24K miles on it.

I’m not typically a huge fan of white cars, though Grand Prix White does look good in certain applications and on the 930, given all of the contrasting trim pieces, it usually looks pretty good. Not exciting, but fresh and bright. Here, with the Bordeaux interior, I really like it and the overall combination delivers a sum that is greater than its parts. Add to that what appears to be excellent condition of the interior and exterior and you have a 930 Slantnose that should attract quite a bit of notice. Will it attract notice at this price though? That remains to be seen. 930 prices have risen steadily and a factory Slantnose takes even those high prices to another level. But $255K for an ’87 still feels like it’s stretching the bounds of reasonable expectation. Granted, we have seen very high quality examples sell for higher than this. Those have tended to be Cabriolets, but those sales do show that with proper documentation and excellent condition buyers are willing to pay significant premiums. So while I may think this asking price feels high, we could still see a sale.
