Porsche Crest Working on a factory slantnose book

I have started working on a detailed factory slantnose book. I plan on having it finished in 2 years. It will be my first book and have wanted to do one for over 10 years.

I am restoring one factory 87 930S and will take many detailed pictures one I have the car all apart. I have some new parts and some of the rarer parts to photograph.

I know I will also need to go to Porsche or have somebody there work with me on some information and factory pictures.

I have already written quite a few notes to incorporate into the book.

I may need some help with pictures of your cars too, with photo credit given.

What kinds of things would you like to see in the book?

Thanks for your suggestions.

Sound great.

Maybe a Myth vs Fact chapter...

I have a 100% original '89 factory slantnose cab with 9,000 miles. If you need any detailed pics just let me know.

Slantnose Publication

Quinn-
Contact me about borrowing the factory brochures from Sonderwunsche Programme. I have numerous photos as well.
Good luck with your research.

While shopping I really wanted a factory slant. It took me a long time to be able to differentiate between early factory slants, later 505 factory slants, post delivery sonderwunsch, Porsche dealer-wunsch, it's real because it's steel vs. fiberglass-wunsch and the "totaled '83 became a slant-wunsch. Oh and true 930S also.
I finally gave up. The murkiness cast a shadow on all slants to me with this question of "is that a "real" because they're all real to some extent. I still love the look and history of these special cars but if you can clear that up it would have really helped me communicate what I was looking for.
I still think about buying one from time to time so please work fast. . .

Thanks Sloane and thanks Bill.

Very true reachme. The water has been real murky on these cars for awhile. I believe if we have a good reference book it could clear up a lot of these issues and make all of our cars have a better value and to be better understood.

I will be also looking for good stories about factory slantnose cars.

I have been involved with slantnose 930S's for 25 years now and what a better way to celebrate.
