Thanks guys, A few things to consider. I love the color combo of the TT and doing the deal this way I pay no tax. Also as I said the paint is new and flawless. A big plus for me. Not a chip, scratch or swirl anywhere. And I'll be getting about $3-5K as well...

Kilo.. I'm not seeing it.

Your car as everyone has said.. factory 505, rare/unusual color combo, reasonable miles and very clean.. I think puts you @ $60k in todays market.

The 993 tip w/100k + miles. Well, I've seen those in low to mid $20s

993TT in condition as described about $70K Color combo.. there were a lot of them around in arena red/grey, or blk. I have a bud that just sold his 97 993TT Speed yellow, Ruf wheels & suspension otherwise bone stock.. 14K mi Hew was under $100k and well over 70. Car is impeccable and all original minus wheels and susp.

My thought is trade the 993 tip and pony-up cash..

I think you'll regret selling the slant... and I'll regret not buying it!!

What do you guys think of this 79 dealer slant conversion with a Ruf 5 speed transmission and K27 turbo? Price is a bit high for a conversion but it appears very nice. DANIEL SCHMITT & CO CLASSIC CAR GALLERY PRESENTS: 1979 PORSCHE 930 TURBO for Sale in St. Louis, Missouri.

Will the suspension differences of this 1979 compared to the 80s vintage turbos that I am familiar with be noticeable?

^^^^car looks to be in very nice shape. I love the interior. The conversion looks nicely done. Price?.....IMO...too high. Around $40k would probably be the ballpark.

Any other comments on price or the handling differences between a 79 and the 80s turbos?

I just joined and the wealth of information in this thread is amazing...

I'm looking at purchasing a Slant Nose and it is a gray market car, or at least I am sure it is based on the Autocheck and title stating under mileage that it is exempt...

It is an '85 non turbo...I am amazed that the VIN doesn't give away any type of designation based on codes...

Based upon raj911s post on page 19;

- Chassis no: WPOZZZ93ZCS000936
- Engine no: 67C0980
- (Chassis and engine are matching numbers... type 930771 coupe)
- Country spec: C26 Singapore
- Exterior colour u3: Zinn metallic
- Carpet colour 1VD: champagne

- Gearbox Type: G93034
- Gearbox Nr.: 77C0990

Z-Order" (Z stands for Zusatzauftrag) used for special wishes

The option list included all country-specs as well as the "special wishes" (F) options (flat nose conversion).

The VIN for the vehicle I am considering - WP0ZZZ91(ZF)S******

Does the Z and the F designate the same as in his VIN, Zusatzauftrag and flat nose?

$59,900 seems high for an aftermarket slant. The Ruf trans would be neat and that is worth $10k+ alone. I agree with speednme1 on the ballpark of the price.

Banned?

I know, a little 'off topic', however:

HOW does one get BANNED from Pelican? Reason I ask: I was contacted by somebody interested in buying my SN. (COCONUTPOINT WAS USER NAME.)

As he saw pictures of my car on this thread, I thought maybe somebody would know something about it? When I went back to look at some PM's we exchanged, it said BANNED...

Anybody know him? Know why?

[QUOTE=tailwind22;7448540]What do you guys think of this 79 dealer slant conversion with a Ruf 5 speed transmission and K27 turbo? Price is a bit high for a conversion but it appears very nice. DANIEL SCHMITT & CO CLASSIC CAR GALLERY PRESENTS: 1979 PORSCHE 930 TURBO for Sale in St. Louis, Missouri.

That is a pretty nice looking car. You would have to look at the Slant Conversion in person to really know what you are getting. What dealer did the work? For example, an Alan Johnson conversion ( 80's Porsche Dealer in San Diego) would actually be collectible I think.

$59k seems a bit steep for a non factory slant nose but this post is full of comments on values going up so maybe that is where we are at now. A quality conversion is indistinguishable from a factory slant and there are not that many conversions out there in the big picture of things. My own experience would suggest that you look for signs of rust on the slant fenders. Even my RUF Conversion has some so I would guess that the factory dipped them and the rest of the world did not. Chaulk one up for the factory slants on that one.

As I recall, The 78-85 930 is tuned a bit different than the 86-89 930 so that the boost comes on a bit more sudden. That was the origins of the stigma that a 930 would kill the unaware driver doing stupid things. I would imagine that the standard headers/exhaust/turbo upgrades would cure that a bit. I am not sure that there were big differences in the suspension between the 3.3 930's.

Sounds like a day trip to St Louis for some BBQ and a Porsche ride. The car does look quite nice. I am not keen on the wheels but each to their own. The RUF 5 speed is way bonus! I would love to get one for my car.

Good luck......
Mark

What does the screw adjustment on the headlight motor do? Speed of the motor or a limitation adjustment of some kind?

I adjusted it - but doesn't seem to do anything. Or - I just may be too stupid to figure it out - lol

Thanks,
Mark

I haven't looked at/or played with ne in awhile.. but If its the one I'm thinking about it will adjust depth of where the lights lay when off. In other words adjust to make them flush with the panel opening, Or... it may be that this one adjusts the level up when open.. or am I thinking about the ones on the 308? Duh. You get the idea.

I think that screw is for adjusting the the stop torque for the motor when the headlights hit their mechanical stops. I wouldn't toy with it. Use the mechanical stop bolts to adjust the headlight attitude both when the headlight is up and when it's down.

How many inaccurate statements are made in this "Factory" Slantnose offering?

CAVEAT EMPTOR !



This current ebay offering is a hoot! Get out a new legal pad if you're writing down the misrepresentations. Aside from the obvious mistakes in the description copy, the video is a true classic in the number of bogus comments made by the obviously misinformed sales manager (and supported by an enthusiastic camera man assistant). Of course the most glaring problem is that the car is NOT a genuine factory made Slantnose in spite of the apparent presence of several factory components.

The sales manager definitely sounds convinced that the car is authentic by his frequent references to a number of verifiable clues provided by two local "PCA experts" (a little bit of knowledge is a dangerous thing). His persuasive sales pitch will be of little consolation to the unsuspecting purchaser when he/she learns the truth about his/her "real factory built" Slantnose Turbo. Note the dealership's warranty paragraph where it holds itself harmless from any and all misrepresentations:
"The seller shall not be responsible for the correct description, authenticity, genuineness, or defects herein, and makes no warranty in connection therewith."

My thoughts exactly when I saw the listing this AM. First clue was no photo of the option code sticker.
