Chuck,
Up to '87, when the 505/506 optioned slants became available, the earlier slant's vents were just that. They had ducts going to the rear, supposedly to cool the brakes, but in reality, they were more decorative than anything else. Also, because of the front headlight assembly, the cooler would not fit in the front wheel well like other 911's.
