Slant Nose

Maybe a stupid question but were all Slant Nose's 930's?

Special Wishes may have made an 911SC or Carrera slant nose, but the option codes would say.

I heard there were a few Special Wishes Carrera Slantnoses built, but it is really hard to authenticate since they would have been grey market vehicles. The option codes(505, 506) for the Slantnoses would appear on any 911 from MY '87 on thru MY '89.

So it's very likely that not all slants were turbos?

I have seen a picture of one. It was in one of the various Porsche books published in the 80's. Slant nose narrow body.

I looked at a 911 slantnose conversion a few years back and thought it looked good. The car was painted orange and had a Carrera Turbo tail. At the time the color was bling overkill, but thinking about it now, it would be a unique car.

I am pretty certain that you could order a slantnose 3.2 carrera.

There were a few 911 factory slantnoses made for the U.S. in the eighties. They were special orders. I knew of one in a important Porsche collection.

Hi sorry to highjack the thread, but I came across this car for sale in Singapore and was thinking of taking the plunge. It is a 1981 or 1982, 930 slopenose, according to the dealer, it is a factory slopenose, one of a handful made in the early 80's.

I don't know much about the early 930 slopes, can anyone tell me if this is the real deal ?

Thanks

Prithvi

Im no expert, but that car screams aftermarket. for starters, I was under the impression that the factory slant nose cars had pop up headlights, not mounted in the bumper. The mirrors are wrong for that year, as they should be the flag type. Its got RUF type wheels, and the exhaust tips dont look right for that year. Clearly someone has modifyed this car.

That specific model of slant nose (with the odd lights and no pop-ups) was a factory option, according to two or three books I have.

I'm not literate with production years so I can't be of any more help - sorry.

Has the dealer got any documents supporting the ordered options? If you were to post this info a borad member may be able to verify if the car is authentic.

If they were not pop up head lights, then were they not in the front air dam (and round with clear plastic covers)? The 4 rectangle headlights are a USA headlight if I'm not mistaken.

I'm with Rodsrsr. That front air dam screams after market (and ugly too!).

I am in Japan on work at the moment and will be back to Singapore in mid Jan, and will get more details. I saw the car about 2 weeks ago and seemed pretty clean. According to the dealer, the car was recently rebuilt by Ruf Singapore. The car has been modified, it has a different intercooler and exhaust from the stock 930s, also has a new interior from a 965 (I think). I have seen 2 such slope noses around Singapore since the late 1980s. One of them has either been crashed or exported and this is the other. I did a bit of searching and came up with this.

"Since 1981 the 'Flat Noses' had been built by the Zuffenhausen repair department. But only in 1987 the Flat Nose was officially listed as an option for the Turbo. Only very few were built by the factory. About 80% of the Flat Noses are 'fake'. Early Flat Noses had the headlights mounted in the front wing, while later models were equipped with folding headlights. Behind the bumper and additional oil-cooler was placed. A total 236 were built between 1982 and 1987."

and the only other pic I could find of a similar car.



I have also seen a similar slope nose being sold in Germany some time ago, for quite a princely sum.

I am hoping this was one of the first few slopes built as part of the "Special Wishes Program", granted it aint the prettiest Porsche, but would be nice to own a piece of history and it is slightly more expensive than a normal 930.

Any info you can provide would be great!

Thanks for everything.

That white car has the same front end as the black car. I haven't seen that on another slant nose, but it could be right.

I still think the square headlight are incorrect.

On the Rennlist 911 Turbo forum, there are a few slant nose guys. They also have a link to a slant nose web site if you do a search.

There is a web site at 930S.com. You can get some info from him or ask him a question.

You can also check to see what the slats in the rear fender intakes are made of. The factory used wood. Not all aftermarket conversions would have done the same. All fenders should also be steel, unlike some aftermarket conversions which used fiberglass or plastic, instead.

I haven't seen front fenders/wings like that, without the square pop-up headlamps (and all lights set into the front valence, instead). At least in the US, that probably wasn't allowed, as there's a minimum height requirement for headlamps. I doubt bumper-height or below-bumper-height would qualify.

Also, don't ROW cars from the 80s all use impact bumpers, too? The impact bumpers were a concession to the US DOT requirement that mandated all bumpers be able to handle a 5 mph impact, or something like that. So little ram shocks were placed behind the front and rear bumpers (at least in US cars). The accordion bellows were used to hide the fact that the bumpers could then slide a few cm back and forth. Your black car depicted lacks the impact bumpers. Was it legal for a car to be sold like that in Singapore back in the 1980s? It wouldn't have been in the US.

Good point Noah about the bumpers.

Oh, and aren't there supposed to be louvers on the front fenders/wings, above the front wheels?
