If Porsche production planning is anything like most automotive manufacturers of that era, it typically took seven years to arbitrate,design, tool up and produce sheet metal changes back then. I suspect that after 1981, Porsche decided to provide these on a limited production run (a.k.a. Special Wishes) before they added them on the assembly line in 1986 (MY1987).
It would be another nail in the slantnose coffin if we could find out when the fronts were cut over from custom to production stamped units. If they were indeed custom units. According to Peter Morgan's book, the chassis number for the one-and-only 1981 Special Wishes slant produced is: 932BX000619.
