What 930s came with the rear flare vents and boxed rockers?
 
... it seems I only see these on the slant nose and cabs, but not too often on the coupes. :confused:

elvision930 03-24-2010 09:22 AM

Not sure about the boxed rockers... but the 1989 930 LE (luxury edition??) model had the rear flare vents. Both cab and coupe versions. Yes they were rare.

The 930S with the slant nose delete option.

Maxx1 03-24-2010 06:16 PM

So, they didn't come on regular coupes or targas unless modified? Thats interesting, thanks.

I think during that time if you had the cash Porsche would build it for you.

kycarguy 935 03-24-2010 08:36 PM

Maxx1 I have seen them mostly on coupes.

In the Sonderwunsch program or Special Wishes they would do about anything you wanted to pay for.

That's what I was trying to find out, if they were standard on a particular model or a special order option? I've seen them on several cabs as well and it got me wondering why on some and not others? I guess the after market blurs the picture even more.

Thanks! :)

My 1988 has both boxed rockers and vents...seems original - not sure why someone would add them :).

Does this imply that its an "S?" How would one know if its an "LE?" Were LE's only from 89 onwards?

The "LE" Limited Edition were only built in 1989 to celebrate the rumours this was end of 911 production. I understand from reliable sources the total number built were in the order of 150 worldwide for that year, which included "SE" Slantnose Edition.

kycarguy 935 is correct, it was a question of how deep were your pockets.The team would roughly estimate the cost and work towards this price. This catered to the bespoke wishes of customers, excentric and otherwise....;) anything was possible. Hence the sonderwunch cars are so unique within this period 5 year period.

I can't comment on your own car, whether these were factory fitted or conversion later. I checked the cost of factory wide body kit with integrated oil cooler and fin rockers would set you back in (Germany currency) DM 40,000 incl. 14% VAT.

Hope this helps...Kenny

I have a '78 with boxed rockers, special ordered from the factory.

Kenny-
To my knowledge the LE pkg as available to customers in the UK in 1989 consisted of most of the Special Wishes options (engine upgrade, front spoiler/oil cooler, rear vents, interior appointments) but omitted the extended sills (boxed rockers) and the slant fenders/folding headlamps. I recall being offered in 1989 a brand new US model Speedster with factory boxed rockers and rear vents, the options were modest in cost but really set the silver/black car off. The only one I've ever seen.

Indeed, the UK LE package was very specific in content with additional options. There is a standard package and option list quoted on an earlier thread on slantnose link below. Whereas the earlier cars were essentially "special one off orders" and hence there are quite a few subtle differences, extended sills, quad muffler exit pipes were also different from mine. :rolleyes:

Reviving a very old thread, but need to gage opinions...

I'm starting to gather the parts to get my 930 slant back to stock body.. Was going to get a body shop to quote the work to redo the rear quarters, until I came across the photos in this thread... The LE photo above looks nice IMHO.... It could save me a bunch of money at the body shop. Has anyone else gone for this look?

JMGaston 01-22-2014 07:01 PM

Very nice.

JMGaston 01-22-2014 07:04 PM

I'm very much leaning for this approach. My car has the front Ruf nose with oil cooler, which I plan to keep, therefore just swapping the front fenders and the box rockers, keeping the rear vents.

Tt surgeon 01-22-2014 07:16 PM

I'd keep the boxed rockers too if I were you.
I remember when you got your car, very nice!

JMGaston 01-22-2014 07:58 PM

Thank you very much. It's been a great car, definitely a very good decision.
The good thing is that the rockers are easy to put on and off, so there will opportunities to try out both looks. The vent options are much harder decisions to make. The fenders and rocker covers I found are a different color, so the car may require a paint job. If that is the case, Depending on how much the body work cost will be, I might go back to stock rear quarters.

Tt surgeon 01-22-2014 09:09 PM

Usually the vents are functional adding brake cooling. A good body guy can match the fenders and rockers without much trouble, but I understand your point.
Curious, what makes you want to de-slant the car?

abboushi 01-22-2014 09:13 PM

I have an 87' 930 turbo with factory slant nose delete option. It's pretty rare I'm not sure how many are produced but mine is white.
