That's funny! I remembered having seen them but I thought that it was out of one of my Porsche Books.

Well, they are still interesting, and I am still thankful for the post.

Hello,

I purchased a Special Wishes (documented) 1983 Slantnose (99% original) last month from an amazing fellow in Alaska. This car was stored in Redmond, WA and was picked-up last Thursday and is on it's way to Miami. Should arrive until the end of this week.

In the meantime I can say the following:

- Burgundy with Burgundy interior
- July 1983 production (3rd to last)
- 1996 Fax from Porsche AG confirming that this specific car was produced by their "Exclusive Deparment"
- Apparently 86k original miles
- Engine has no modifications (stock inter-cooler) and was rebuilt 15k miles ago
- Wheels are stock
- Only apparent defects are a warped dash and stone chips on the front bumper.

As soon it gets there, I will share more information.

Best regards,
Slfan

Congrats! Guess it has been delivered by now. Post pics!

But regarding the Carfax: being a 1983, and a Turbo, the VIN should not be in Carfax's database. 1983 911 Turbos were not imported to the U.S. And AFAIK Carfax only keeps records of North American cars (unless they've recently expanded?). Turbos were not imported from MY 1980 thru '85.

I have an '85 930 Factory Slant and there's a CarFax History Report on the car since it came into the country in '85. Shows the first registration ( Vermont ) in '85 and everything up to 2002 when I moved back to Wisconsin from Boston. Since Wisconsin doesn't require periodic vehicle inspections by an authorized state inspection like on the East Coast, nothing else shows up on the CarFax report.

Fellows,

The car arrived in Miami last month and I already installed a new Sigla windshield to make it look nicer. Will share pictures soon.

In the meantime, I wish to clarify that my 930 is an Euro model with a WPOZZZ.... vin and Carfax has 8 specific records for this car for the 1989-2006 period. These 8 records document mileage, title and 4 "passed safety inspections". This Carfax report is recent and was issued on 5/12/14.

In otherwords, Carfax DEFINITELY works for Euro vins that are 1981 or newer. Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Slfan

Fellows,

Here are some pictures of my documented "Special Wishes" Factory Slantnose when it arrived in Miami and this week during installation of a new windshield.
























Next step is to load the car in a Shipping Container and send it to my current home overseas. I am eagerly waiting this.

Regards,
Slfan

Interesting. No fender louvers. I have not seen that before on a real 505 car. I know nearly anything was possible.

My 84 Euro 930 Factory Slantnose also has no louvers on the front fenders. From what I have been able to ascertain, you could have them without or without louvers.

JJ 911 SC,

I would have loved driving this car cross-country. Unfortunately, time availability does not permit it at this time. It is basically the old norm that "when you have the time to use the toy a lot, you most probably cannot afford to buy the toy. When you are finally able to afford the toy, you then donīt have that much time to use it.." Life is not perfect but let us make the most of it. Regards

Unclebilly and FC356,

If you look at one of the German special wishes brochures that is on one of the pages within this thread and translate the material, it is very interesting to see that basically evertyhing was optional in Europe and you could choose the combination you wish. There was separate pricing for each one of the following options:

- Slantnose Fenders and recessed headlights
- Vents on Fenders
- Front mounted oil cooler
- Slats on rear fenders and wider sills
- 930S Engine package.

Everything was pricey and apparently subject to the customers whims. This is very different than the "standard" slantnose option packages that were prepared and homologated (in case of the US market) for the US and UK.

Regards,
Slfan

Yep.. A number of the Special Wishes cars had no louvers.. Original purchasers had the choice of with.. or without.

Slfan,
Congratulations on your find. Question on one of photos;

The highlighted area shows something that looks like a solenoid. Do you know what those leads are hooked up to?

Dohc,

I am glad my post brought you back some childhood family memories. Good luck with your quest and please let us know when you find your car.

Regards,


Werk I,

Despite having Porsches for several years and driven a 930 for the first time in 1998, I am a TOTAL 930 newbie. As soon as the car arrives, I will look into the solenoid you mentioned and let you know what it is doing (or trying to do...). Anyway, thank you very much for the question (heads-up).

Regards,
Slfan
