Dave,

Thanks....I will have to verify your details as I begin to explore the car. This is the first Porsche that I have owned and will require some education to know the specs. It is about 3 hours from me and I have been picking info as I can. The original owner passed away in 2007 and the cars "caregiver" passed away unexpectedly earlier this year. It has been sitting for sometime now so we have been very cautious not to really attempt too much mechanically until a Porsche mechanic goes through it.

Once we get closer to spring, I will have it loaded up and transported to the nearest Porsche dealer to have it gone through. Right now I have been devoting my time to collecting all of the cars history as to carefully preserve it.

As you can see....I have known this car for a very long time. It is a privilege to have become its new caregiver.

Where are you at in Wisconsin?

Andrew

Andrew,

Congrats on your car and as well on being able to locate that type of material on its history. You must be very excited for it to arrive.

With regard to transporting to the nearest dealership, with of course not knowing where you live, you may want to think twice about a dealership and seek out a qualified independent shop.

I say this as the labor rate with regard to the dealership will be ridiculous as to what you get for your money, and many dealerships no longer have the staff that knows the older cars.. This being the case, you're numbers swell as they "figure it out" and again, the familiarity of these special cars just may not be there. You find a part being replaced as opposed to being repaired, and there are sometimes small differences in the continuation parts, as opposed to what was original.

As an example, we just ordered new brake backing plates for a 74 Carrera. They arrived nice and fresh with their black finish. However, the originals were yellow cad finished.

Again, just a thought..

Paul

+1, that would be the last place I would take it to.

Andrew,

Wisconsin Pelican should come up with suggestion for a good independent shop near you once you post your location.

Porsche Crest

This is a picture of my second Porsche and my first slant nose. I started building it in April of 1988 after calling Circle Porsche and a new 1989 930S Cab. And it was going to cost about $130,000. I was young and didnít have that kind of cash lying around so I built my own using all factory parts except for the Golden Coachworks front fenders.

Since this is thread #930 I wanted to take the time and thank all of you for contributing to this Porsche Slant nose thread to make it what it is today. I hope it continues to grow and grow and educate all of us more on these very special Porsche’s.

I will try to update this post to include a little bit of an index when I get some time.

Andrew,
Are you in Wisconsin or is this thread exchange getting a little confusing?

Kelly-Moss is one of the best Porsche Dealerships in the Midwest. They even had an air-cooled specialist when I was down there a few years ago.

I was thinking of it more like a gathering place for anyone interested in these special cars. I have been thinking about this for awhile now.

I see another current thread now 12.18.08 that another member is asked if all slantnose cars were 930's. Then it branched off into questions about 1 piece factory slantnose fenders or aftermarket inserts, etc.

Of course pictures are always great. Any documents that you may want to post would be nice.

Many of you guys have factory 930S's. I have a factory 87 930S that I will try to move around in the garage to get some pictures.

I have helped people with measurements on the 930S over the years on items like the rear brake ducts, but that was posted somewhere else and I can't find it now.

It would be easier to have this information in one place for easy research.

What do you guys think?
It's been 6 years now since this thread started. Hard to believe how fast time flies...

More info:

This 1980 Porsche 930 S Turbo Flat Nose Prototype was offered for sale at the 2007 Blackhawk Collection Exhibit held at the Pebble Beach Concours. It carried a price tag of $250,000. The VIN is WP0222932ZBS000136


This is the original factory prototype of the 930 S Turbo Slantnose. It was created by Porsche at the request of a German Businessman in June 1980 and first registered on the 23rd of October 1980 at a cost of $100,000.00. This car can be found in most books written on Porsches and is described as the first and only one produced that year.

I agree. Six years and a quarter-of-a-million hits later, here we are. Glad and grateful you initiated this thread, kycarguy 935.

Thanks Dave. Outside of my family, Porsche's and specifically 930S slant nose cars are my life. I think about them at least 50 percent of my day...lol

I'm in central Iowa about 60 mile south east of Des Moines. The car is Closest to Lujacks Porsche dealership in Davenport. I am not sure what other options there are near eastern Iowa.

The 330hp engine with the parts you mention was never available on US delivered M505 option cars...only for 1983 and newer Special Wishes RoW 930s, the UK specific 930SE, and the M506 (RoW only) cars. It was not US certified until appearing in somewhat modified form as the stock engine in the 965 Turbos. That letter quoted the performance numbers for the UK model as they stated.

Thanks Andrew for all that documentation! May I use some of them in my Slantnose Guide .pdf? Still putting the finishing touches on version 2.

The problem with the dealership is that they will not say "can't do it".

Our dealership has only a couple of guys that have work with air cool so unless you know for sure....

Reading a sidebar in the 1987 Automobile article in my .pdf, it turns out that Special Wishes DID supply BBS wheels (with uprated suspension!) for a cost of $4550. No wonder we see so many factory slants with them. I wonder what they did to "uprate" the suspension?

After reading this, I installed the OE BBS wheels on my '83 slant. Not sure which I like better...should I keep the 16" BBS or put the Kinesis 17" Speedline RS replicas back on?
