My Slant Nose was converted in the U.S. by a company called UltraSmith in NY. They did RUF conversions in the 80s. It has the single motor set up but is not a Factory Slant Nose. So the only thing that you can surmise from the single headlight motor is that it was done with factory parts but may not be a Factory Slant Nose 930S. Mine has the RUF Valence. The Duel Exhaust that appears in the pics above appear to be the RUF Duel Exhaust as well.







edit: The conversion was done by Exclusive Motorwerks, a RUF Distibuter, in NY. Ultra-Smith did electronics, stereo's and stuff like that and used this car as a demonstrator.

Another give away here is that the boxed rockers do not have the extension for the jack point. I have only seen them absent on the earliest examples of the factory cars.

May also be worth pointing out that the only factory slants designated for sale in the US market were manufactured from '87 thru '89 and carry the M505 option code....

Here's the other car designated by the factory as a Turbo S. Only 81 units were built in 1993:

Kilowdawg, I think you are right. It looks the same to me too.

FYI, I had that same front valence in 1988 on the aftermarket Golden Coachworks slantnose I built back then.

I don't of that valence that came on any factory slantnose car.

Bill's white car picture that you posted is a M506 slantnose valence. If I remember right. Maybe Bill will see this and answer back.

ok I was out for a while... guys look closely at the front valance. look at thickness of the line that separates the front intercooler in half from top to bottom. in Kilodawgs pic the thickness of that line is the same thickness as the space between the foglight as well. if you look at the 930 this guys wants to buy the space between the fog light and the valance is a lot greater. probably twice as thick. or maybe I am going crazy?

they are fun to drive. price seems reasonable for what it is? if the engine overhaul was done i would imagine you would get many many years of enjoyment. I bought my 930 almost a year ago to the day and i have had the engine basically completely rebuilt, the tranny gone through, the dash fixed tires etc etc and i have about the same into the car out of pocket in the last year that you are spending on this one. If you ever get rid of the exhaust on that car call me up. I think its the one i have been looking for.

911nut,

There have been numerous officially badged Turbo S versions over the years but none badged as such on the "G" series platform.

The one most closely applicable to our discussion is the '94 Turbo S Flachbau of which only 76 were built worldwide

J930,

I see what you are talking about now on the valence. However, I was thinking that the one on the car in question was likely a knock-off and not a factory part. As such it was trying to recreate the same design. I just had never even noticed that design as a factory option before though in further looking I have run across it on a couple other euro cars...

Since you brought it up, here's a picture so everyone will know what your talking about.
I don't recall mentioning anything about the G platform but the 3.0 RS was the baddest of those.

I would trade Kilodawg's left testicle for that car... if it were any other color than red. I would throw in his right testicle if it were white. (Sorry Ralph, but that is a true statement)

Correct..
Exclusive Motorwerks was The authorized RUF distributor in the during the 80's.. & Ultrasmith (in NY) did amazing and carefully executed sound systems.. they also did the remote Escort radar detector installs. had one in one of my cars.

Judging by what you describe regarding the single motor set-up on your slant nose conversion, the parts may have been sourced through Alan Johnson Racing as they offered conversions using factory parts..

Note that niether your valnce nor your exhaust appear to be Ruf items.. any interior or engine shots?

Nice looking car btw!

Paul

Hey Kilo, how can you tell the extension isn't there? The hole and the plug ae not there but I have actually seen some where the hole in the rocker had actually been welded and filled, yet the extension was there under the boxed section. Go figure.

onboost,

Just an assumption on my part. if they were going to go to the trouble of welding on the extension why not add the plug so it could be used? In fact why go to the extra trouble of welding and filling the hole? I believe you if you've seen them that way but makes no sense to me.....I'll look for them from now on....Perhaps they were done that way at customer request based on aesthetics or even done after purchase?

I base most of my data on the '87-'89 M505 cars and I know it's risky extrapolating back to the prior years since things seemed to be a lot more fluid before '87.
