Looks like it would cost approx. $200 to commercially scan the negatives to digital format @ 4000DPI, TIFF format. This would give the best results for those who would want to create their own personalized posters.
Hugo, are you selling the negatives or loaning/donating to the group?
Ideas anyone? GoFundMe?

Yes, I want to sell it. Make me a generous offer...

For you the photos should probably be of more use.

Do the negatives have a date on them? Would be interesting to know what year is being represented. Looks like post M505 as an option... so my guess is 1986+

sorry, there are no date stamps at all... My guess was in the middle of the 80's. You are the expert. I would part with this set for 550 $, incl. shipping worldwide. Just let me know via pm.

I'm probably the well-intentioned pest Dave was referring to .

Bill, are you the one who used to run the 930S.com website? I spent hours saving off pages from that old site at the internet archive:

https://web.archive.org/web/20051222185902/http://www.930s.com/service.htm

Like Dave said, websites fade away, and I'm skeptical if PCA will start a database for us as I don't think they do that for any other models.

So I've been organizing photos and data into a .pdf file that is searchable and divided into chapters. If you would be willing to contribute what you have I promise to make the .pdf available for free to anyone who wants it. This way when enthusiasts ask questions you can email them the .pdf from your hard drive if it's not available online anymore. I will also keep an updated .pdf on my Google Drive so you can get the latest version.

What do you think?

Slant Nose parts listed in for sale section

I have listed some parts obtained in a trade a few years back. Fiberglass and aluminum covers for the headlamp mechanism inside the trunk. Parts are covered in black leather.

Converting from slant to standard turbo.

I am thinking about converting my slant nose to a traditional 930 turbo look and am presently looking to find some 930 front fenders.

If anybody is thinking about doing a slant nose conversion this front end is in excellent shape, as you can see from the photo in the post I just placed looking for stock fenders.

WTB - 930 front fenders

Let me know if you need my slant fender assemblies complete with headlight assemblies and boxed rockers. I can't part with them until I find the stock fenders though.

Thanks.

Hi. I have been aproched by someone in regards to buy from him a 85 Carrera that supposedly is a factory conversion. I have checked the VIN, and this being a 85, there is no option code. IT is a US car, and I did find that it has the 491 Turbo Look code. By the (Bad) pictures I have seen of the car it can look like a factory conversion. This being a Carrera, do anyone have a shortlist of things that need to be present for the car being factory?

Slant nose conversion was expensive and not likely to be done on a non-turbo car.
Can you post some pictures?

Hi all,

I've spent a lot of time on this tread researching my 87 Special Wish Slant. I recently listed it on Bring-a-Trailer. The comment section took on a life of it's own during the sale. A lot of great information was shared. I'll come back later and summarize the information later. In the meantime, here is a link:

I watched that auction down to the wire. That was pretty good money for a 505 car. Your pictures were excellent.

Technically, it wasn't a 505 car. If it was, I would have sold it.

Not sure what you mean by not a 505 car. Isn't it a 505 car with Special Wishes options?

In 1987, Porsche started offering the Slant Nose option. The option code for this was 505 (506 on European models). These were ordered like any other option, such as sunroof, sport seats, etc.

My car pre-dates this. When it was made, there was no Slant nose option. If you wanted one, it had to be customized at Werks1. So technically, it does not have the 505 option. The Slant Nose was one of the Special Wish options. These were rarer then the 505 cars (30/year as opposed to 250/year) and usually more unique.
