Sure It is? I saw that on ebay . It is aturbo conversion.
but for some reason somthing is off about the shape when I compare it to the silver slant nose beauty I posted earlier.
1- the front suspension needs some lowering.
2- I know that my reason for the car being a targa is to have a hard top convertible. but when I look @ the lines of the silver car ( hard top) they seem more smooth compared to the targa lines. It just makes the car look alot newer with the hard top lines. Right?

All true but I thought you were looking for a targa widebody.

When I first started looking to buy a 911 it had to be a coupe.

Have you actually looked at any in the flesh?, it sure don't sound like it.
If your going into Porsche turbo ownership with little or no knowledge of these cars (Porsche) you should buy a WRX. Most people not even associated with Porsche, but who have a reasonably sound knowledge of cars, know what a widebody is.

I have to admit, when I went to view my first 911 (didn't buy that one) I was unsure if it had a widebody or not.

The easiest way to check is by looking at the front fenders. They are very obvious whether they are wide or not. Just make sure the rears are even wider still





See the difference ?

I know what a wide body is. I am not why It sound that I don't. the only think that was confusing me was that some wide bodies came with rear fender vents and and rocker boxes and some did not. these two items make wide body vars look even wider? Agree?

WRX , I hope your kidding. I have nothing against WRX, but why whould I be talking 911 turbo and WRX comes in play.I am in for porsche because of every thing Porsche is. I would rather if they were easier to work on, as many people here hint that it is not. but I am sure it would not be a problem for me. I worked on saabs for a few years which are a threat to most mechanics, they do not want to touch them. I'm almost sure if you can work on a saab you can do a classic porsche no problem. with just a little bit of web search you can almost do any thing.
I would not buy a WRX unless I was looking for a 4 wheel drive family car. I have now a saab 900 turbo that I owned for 9 years. that car by now smokes most wrx and shakes a lot of Porsches. I want a porsche because I want a porsche. Oh turbo is a must as you may already know. I will be looking at two 930 slant noses in my area today. I'm hoping to test drive one of them and get a feel of what a classic 930 is. I'm hoping it will blow my mind but Iwill report later. I am looking for a 190 -200 mph porsche but i am not sure which classic porsche beside the RUF had that option.

Those rear fender vents and the boxed rockers can be fitted to any 911, narrow or turbo bodied.

Here in the UK Porsche sold a limited number of turbo's (930's)without the slantnose but fitted the vents and rockers. They were called the "930 LE".
I think in the USA it was known as a "slantnose delete" but was not an actual model like the "930 LE" was. Someone mentioned this earlier for you.

IMO I think you are wasting your time turboing a NA 911 that doesn't have a G50 transmission. Only the later 3.2 carrera's had these.

What you REALLY need to do is to subscribe to Excellence magazine instead of buying a Porsche right away. It will introduce you to the entire world of 911's.

First of all, EVERY major tuner and aftermarket supplier advertises in the magazine. You will see all available body kits for these cars from all vendors.

Second, they talk about old Porsche prices and values EVERY month, with a whole section devoted to it.

Third, if you read the articles you will quickly grow to understand what exactly people are doing when they add stuff to make their cars faster. A huge part of Porsche tuning is making the car loose weight, in fact that is as important as gaining power if you want a real supercar.

Fourth, and maybe most important, you will one day discover the 911 you really want. And it may not be a slant nose, in fact I have seen my friend's authentic slant nose up close and they honestly look a little 80's up close. I much prefer my style. Now beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but don't rush into a purchase before you have looked at a ton of porsches.

Just buy a copy of the magazine at a major bookstore chain, and I think you will realize that it contains a lot of the info you want in one place.

Thought you were looking for a ' classic' '80's Turbo not a new one. You should perhaps read what you post.
A Saab 900 turbo that beats WRX's. What exactly is done to your Saab, perhaps you can show us some pics.
