nice car, my 84 is very similar. I recently got some line corse fuchs in the 17 inch size as the 15 inch rims that came with the car were getting impossible to find rear tires for.

now with the Linea Corse Fuchs

John, I love the way your car sits on those new 17's. I need to upgrade from the 19 inch wheels the PO put on my car and want to achieve your stance.




Do you recall the widths and offsets you chose for your car? Also what size tires did you end up with?

Thanks so much for your time. Rob

WerkI, not sure what you were told about the PCA by PCNA but I indeed have a certificate that states "Slant nose body". There is documentation that this was a Werks build. It is a 82 911SC Turbo that was slanted in Zuffhausen prior to delivery. RoW specs, brought to US under racing only title. I should add that it took the original and 2nd owner nearly 2 years and multiple letters and phone calls to get the certificate. The first certificate did not state slant nose body, but after much back and forth a correct certificate WAS issued. I'll be at Rennsport Reunion if you would like to visit and see the car.

Congratulations on your find. In my statement, regarding Porsche North America, I was merely stating the current policy. When I purchased my slant back in '98, the CoA I purchased stated it was a standard production 930. Like your car, many exchanges of correspondence by myself finally got the issue resolved. What may have happened in your case earlier, Porsche had a different policy in what is to be contained on the CoA. Personally, I think the current policy is a mistake. The Sonderwunsch Programme had a catalog of options available. Why should they be omitted on the CoA? From what the the Porsche rep told me, the Exclusive Program options has the same type of restrictions on the CoA. Does anybody have a more modern Porsche (1987 - and up) that has gone through the Exclusive Program with options that are not on their CoA?

WerkI, certainly not looking for a fight! I VERY much agree that PCNA needs to be less "mysterious" and set a single policy. I am sometimes stunned with the reluctance to release information! When speaking with the previous owners, PCNA stated the new owner couldn't have the info as it was "private" info of the first owner. When the first owner contacted PCNA he was told he couldn't have the info as he no longer owned the vehicle!! It took both being on the phone for an extended time to get the release! GEEZ!! I wish you the best in getting your info cleared up. Please let us know how it works for you.

Tell us more about your slantnose. Does it have the 930 suspension, brakes and 4 spd?

Awsome thread!

Slantnose cars should have there own section. I've learned so much from this thread. There are many of us who love the slantnose look. I've had mine for 30 years and still love it.

Does anyone know what the 930s of the era came with for standard tires. Mine has BF Goodrich Comp T/As and we are not sure whether that was an original tire or not?

Any help would be appreciated.

Andrew

Can't say with absolute certainty, but my guess would be Perelli. They were THE performance tire back then.

WerkI, sent PM, please take a look. Yes, the car is for all intents a 930 but badged a 911SC, turbo. It has the same braking and suspension packages that can be found on the "Euro" (RoW) version of the 930. The numbering system during the early 80's doesn't seem to make a whole lot of sense from what I have researched. Also, labeling was somewhat odd between US and RoW models. Also carries the 3.3 turbo but is upgraded (?) with the RoW improvements giving 330hp, not the 300hp that was "standard" for the car with US specs? Still trying to work it out as this car is a RoW and my German is terrible!

hindsight: my 82 911SC has Pirelli listed on the CoA, but not sure on your year. I'm going with Werk I and guess it was Pirelli also.

Kind of an exciting day....we got the 930 up on the lift to take a look underneath for the first time since getting it to Stall-tech.

I thought you may enjoy looking too.





Cosmoline still coating parts



Inspection points (Lee was particularly excited about these...so I am sharing).



In good company





Dire warning!
