It's not a factory slant, but it's a steel nose done at the dealership when it was a few months old.
Its got a modest list of upgrades done by Tom Amon over the years, and was treated very well by both previous owners. It has led a very gentle life, and looks and drives like new.
This car has been brought up here before, and is truly a very nice example. I personally spent at least 3 hours underneath, inside and inside every nook looking at every detail, then had Tom Amon do a full PPI on it. All in all an excellent car.
Some here won't like the fact that it is not a factory 505 car, but no one can deny that it is a great looking and well done car.
Here's aside view from the day I test drove it. I'll post more photos once I get it home.

Factory or not. It looks like a very very nice car.

Really clean looks. If it drives as good as it looks you are in for ride.

Congratulations and best of luck.

More pictures of interior etc

Fuchs and OEM side mirrors would look good.

IMO the BBS wheels and 935 mirrors look great on that car the only thing I would change is putting the rear quarter slats back to black and not body color..then again if the owner likes it that way I support that too..

JMGaston,

Nice buy.. beautiful car! I've been keeping abreast of cars that have been out there while watching your search.. and I thought this would be the one to buy as well.

Besides, I guess I'm a little partial to this one considering I own her year older twin sister!! Congrats on your purchase and enjoy!!

Thank you all for the compliments. I love the way it looks. I would prefer the OEM mirrors, primarily because the 935 units are useless.

Onboost, I LOVE your car.
