"Slantnose" Steering Wheel, Shift Knob

The horn pad with the Porsche crest inset on the right side was included in the Special Wishes catalog as early as 1985. I suppose that the factory was starting to feel a bit guilty about the list price of the 505 Slantnose package by MY1988 and decided to kick in the fancier horn pad to help justify the high cost. Their guilt did not extend to upgrading the shift knob however as the factory continued to supply the standard leather w/plastic insert knob with the 505 package.
Compared to the numerous (and very costly) interior options that European customers routinely specified on their Slantnose "506" cars the horn pad was an extremely modest upgrade by the factory on the 505 package.
