Porsche maintains a list of all 'werk 1 conversions' (under lock and key) which will identify whether your vehicle is a factory 'Special Wishes' conversion - if your local dealer cannot help it may be worth contacting the (new) Porsche museum to enquire whether they can tap into their achives?

Hey Martin,

The black and the yellow are the same car. Looked so much better in black, they had the same number SBU8911. This is the other car, that has been fully restored. Ths silver one.

Are you coming for the meet up this Saturday? Finally got the 930 battery changed and she is back on the road, and we can go check the 67 out after that.

Cheers

Do factory slantnose's manufactured before 1986 have some value as 1986 and newer models? What about mileage does 80K miles make a big difference ? Could a special wishes car be ordered with 400 hp?

I like to think so.
But due to the scarcity of these cars, it is really hard to say one way or the other. You will find differing opinions on the subject of Sunderwunsch car values.
Mileage will always make a difference on the show cars (a.k.a garage queens).

It really depends what has been done or not done as far as maintenance to the car during its 80K life.

As far I know, there was not a 400BHP engine available, but with Special Wishes, anything was possible if the Werke I facility wanted to take it on. I have the precursor of the U.K.'s 930 SE engine. Bigger turbo, more aggressive cams, less restrictive exhaust, front mounted oil cooler for a 330BHP engine.

Hi Steve,

Sorry Ive been out of pocket. Divorce has become the operative word for me so far this year. I'm doing my best to try and keep the car but much of my attention and focus has been directed to that front. Wish me luck and hopefully I'll be back in the swing of things soon.

Special Wishes

Hi everyone,

My name is Kenny, I'm based in The Netherlands.

Just joined the forum, although have been avid reader. Reflecting on this topic, I thought would keep this excellent thread alive by introducing my Sonderwunsch-Programm (Special Wishes) 1985 930 S Turbo Coupe. This was hand built to order in the werk 1 production workshop, Zuffenhausen.

Many of the conclusions on this subject are correct, there were no options listed anywhere on the car. I do have a brass plaque inside the car (same as the first special wishes car listed here) and other than a hand typed letter of the work to be carried out. It was in 1984 the factory produced an option list of the possibilities, which later became the official list until it was renamed Porsche Exclusive and individual choices outwith this was down to the individual wishes of each buyer.

To be honest, I've came across some flatnose SE and LE's (1989). Although haven't seen many special wishes on my travels 1981 -1986 outwith some of the early pictures posted on here. Its only just now following these different threads globally, I'm begining to realise how special these cars are nowadays and how difficult it is to establish any background information.

The car was factory 3.3 Turbo / flat 6 cylinder engine (M93066S) with the “high performance” engine package, this was up-rated by factory to 375 bhp+ with manual magnesium boost control (dampraf), larger KKK turbocharger, oil intercooler, high-lift cams, free flow 4-pipe twin exhaust system + wastegate and a host of other options. In 1999 there were additional engine enhancements carried out by Porsche.

The car currently runs at 1.1 bar @420bhp and if required, can run to higher boost. Although, I very rarely change the settings this is more for sprint sessions and fast enough for me. Bit of a purist, I haven't had the urge to modify the car, its orginal in every way. I think this is what makes each special wishes car so unique.

I enclose a photo for your pleasure.....

Kenny

Thank you for your post, Kenny, and welcome to the forum!
You have a nice looking car with interesting specs...it's always good to hear more about the Special Wishes cars that are still in existence around the world. We look forward to additional posts from you, along with any other photos that you'd like to share with the group.

Thanks for posting Kenny and welcome to Pelican.

That is a nice looking car you have and it is always good to hear of other rare Sonderwunsch-Program cars.

Excuse me if this is a repost, but Excellence magazine issue #9, June 1988 has a great article by Bruce Anderson that is a comprehensive overview of slopenose conversions by the factory and others.

Hello Kenny, do you have a picture of your boost control ? I have a boostcontrol in my car too,
but it is placed where the ashtray was before.

Please post a picture.

Have a nice day.

Thanks guys for warm welcome, I can't download on works labtop and son has borried my other labtop...will post more photos soonest

Hi Ted, the adjustable manual boost is situated between my front seats, it was my understanding this was the only place it was fiited. However, if customers wanted to have this built into dash or console then anything was possible. RUF tended to build these just behind the fronts seats. The tell tail guage was taken from 934/935 and fitted to where the clock would be in the normal turbo.

All the best!

Kenny
