So from what I understand reading your reply, there is 2 kinds of slantnoses...

To me, to make sure a 930 slantnose is a factory one, I would only have to look for the option code (505 for a US model).

The thing is, I will go see a 1987 US version 930 slantnose tomorrow, built year and month 06-1987, and I want to make sure a a factory one, not a conversion (no interest in my opinion).

Let me know if I'm missing something.

Thanks again.


Hi Nicolas,

In 1987 you had the original factory one (506), so you could get a slant-nose without the option slant-nose. all previous slant-noses was a normal 930 but with a factory slantnose option.

So for the previous one (505) it's hard to tell that it's an original factory option. You can let it check by the Porsche factory true your Porsche dealer. Or the original bill or order.

For the later one (506 / 1987-1989) it's easy to know if you deal with an original slant-nose by checking the Cars vin.

Model 930 S-N - motor 930/66 - gearbox 930/36 - vin WP0ZZZ93ZHS050001 TO 0087 - engine 68Hxxxx

Model 930 S-N VS - motor 930/68 - gearbox 930/36 - vin WP0ZZZ93ZHS050001 TO 0087 - engine 68Hxxxx

This is for the normal coupe, let me know if it's a Targa or Cabrio

It is not easy because to much to explain. You could order a 930S from 03/1987 ..... But if you not shore then give me some vin and other numbers and i'll find out more.

It is hard to explain because I'm living near Brussels
