IIRC it had 36 pages of options and started off as a simple special wishes project that escalated into this beast.

I have a bunch of pictures someplace of the cars in their storage facility here in Jersey but can't locate them right now really is a marvel although I still don't like the BBS's even though it came that way from the factory.

Anthony,
- thanks for adding that info and pic.. I knew that I knew this car but just couldn't place it at the time of posting. I have seen Robert's cars on a couple of occasions and they are probably the heaviest optioned cars produced by Porsche Exclusive.. they are amazing and well cared for.

Regards,

Paul

I know you have met Robert. Nice guy too bad he has health issues. I still think the America GS is one one the nicest colors of any Porsche I have seen. If you don't like green than it is not for you as they say. But a stunning color the interior is definitely an acquired taste. In some ways it is a shame he used the car for a test bed for his products it was such a unique car by itself and any car could have been used for the same purpose. In either case I can only imagine what value these cars have today the slope being the last delivered and most heavily optioned Porsche ever has to make it well over a million by itself.

I have been checking in on here put not posting because school was keeping me really busy. I have also been working on my factory slantnose book and always looking for more information.

I have had a few phone calls from guys buying factory slantnose cars and you know who are are. It is great to hear from you.

I have a pair of factory slantnose front fenders that are used and going to sell. I will post here for a couple of days before I post in the main parts forum.
Quinn,
Will you be able to give a us preview of your book sometime soon?
Steve

Steve, I am nowhere close to being finished with the book. I am working on it in my spare time which is limited these days. I will for sure give a preview when I get close to the end.
Thanks, Quinn.

This information was given to me by Mr Amann's widow when I was researching the cars provenence after I had bought it. Hope the new owner is enjoying it as much as I did. I still believe the original 935 spoiler should have left in situ. Mrs Amann told me that her husband was very good friends with the head honchos at Porsche and had requested his car to look like the Le Mans 935.
Best Regards
Sorry to bring back a post from all the way in the beginning of this thread....but I figured it would be great to post an update on this very special car

Your old car is still in good hands, after exchanging a few hands across the US she now resides in Brentwood, TN. She continues to be driven on nice Tennessee backroads and enjoyed by many at local car events. I always love working on this car when it comes in the shop, a nice piece of Porsche history.




I'll post up some more pictures tonight!

Thanks for posting/sharing the pictures Track.One. I think you emailed me about this car a year or so ago. I am glad that it is so close to me. Maybe I will see it again.

I just posted this info on a Rennlist thread regarding a beautiful 930 "S" in France. Thought I would share my experiences.....

Regarding the certification of 911's modified by the Werk I facility in Zuffenhausen, I had been corresponding with the Porsche Cars North America (PCNA) Certificate of Authenticty Group (CoA). The way the CoA works is the vehicle in question is certified as such as it leaves the assembly line. The CoA will only show the options installed on the assembly line. It will not show any additional modifications performed by the Zuffenhausen facility. In my correspondence with PCNA, I requested they investigate with Porsche AG to find records showing my car was modified with Sonderwunsch Programme options. They did indeed find records showing it is a Sonderwunsch Flachbau and they sent me a letter stating so. However, there is a catch....they could not or would not declare it had the 330 BHP engine. When I rebuilt the engine some years back, I took photos of the engine internals, exhaust, turbocharger, front mounted oil cooler and plumbing which pointed to it being the 330 BHP engine. Whether the itemized list of option paperwork at Zuffenhausen exists to document these Sonderwunsch vehicles, I don't know. Hopefully, over time, more info will be provided to us. So, if anyone wishes to get their factory modified cars certified, I strongly recommend that you pony-up for a CoA, AND request at that time, that you believe it is a Werk I modified car. Be patient, the process may take a while.

^^^^ Thanks

It's definitely been a learning experience. I don't know if any of you have noticed over the past few years there has been some early slantnoses (1981-1986) on eBay claiming to be Sonderwunsch Programme vehicles. The seller posts a pic of the CoA that shows a line entry of it being a slantnose optioned vehicle. I wondered how THEY were able obtain that valuable information when no one else could. However, in my discussions with the PCNA CoA Group, they have NEVER entered the Sonderwunsch Programme or the Exclusive Programme options on the CoA. It has always been separate letter stating slantnose authenticity from PCNA.
I've only seen a couple of ads with a CoA looking like that, but anyone should question the validity of such a document when they see it.

Buyer Beware!

Updated Porsche 911 Red book - production number

I just saw read this. Please see link.

What Happened to the Embarrassment of Riches? - Road Scholars

If you scroll down to 1987 930 Turbo M505, it states the following:

It continues to amaze long-time Porsche observers that lately these G-series Turbos rack up such high sales prices. As one individual asked, “How can something of which Porsche manufactured nearly 24,000 examples over the car’s run possibly be considered rare? In fact, according to the updated Porsche 911 Red Book, Turbo slant nose production for model year 1987 came to 591 examples. Yes, this was purported to be the New York auto show car, but it sold for $134,750, including fees.

Did I miss something? There were 591 factory slantnose produced in 1987? I thought there was 195 in 1987 and 609 in total for the 505 cars. Thoughts? BTW: I have not read the updated 911 Red book. Does anybody have a copy?

I have a passenger front factory slant nose fender and headlight for sell if anyone needs one. The fender needs some work but the price is right.

Does anyone know or have pictures of an original 930 SE quad exhaust? I am trying to figure out what color the original muffler was. It's time to get mine restored...

I don't know. That pic and the one below were the only two I could find. I wonder if that area is oxidized.

I'm beginning to think that the wrap around the muffler is galvanized steel. If it's buffed and a protectant, like Sharkhide is applied, it might retain its original finish longer. Are these Bischoff pieces?
