John Congratulations for owning such a special car. I love everything about your car. I have owned a euro flat nose in the past as well and to be honest I have missed it dearly. I missed that car more than my ex-wife LOL. I thank you for sharing her with us.

Love the car and the paint; the interior not so much. Too, too much white.

Hi Johan,

Welcome and what a nice car. Great to have all that history on the car as well.
Very special for sure. You have a great piece of history there 😀

its rare.. and that's the important thing..

during a year I would have several opps globally to buy a red black white etc flatnose... rare as these are.. I may never have an opp to buy this car, a non flatnose flatnose! ;-)

The world is a far better place for it!

What a unique find. So period correct. A time when anything was possible with Porsche. Enjoy it in great health.

Can't Begin to Compete

Guys,Good Evening. This is my first post on the forum so If I've got it all wrong,forgive me!
I can't begin to compete with this 930 but thought I might post a couple of pics of my '88 930 Turrbo Targa which might be of interest.



Porsche tell me that only 55 RHD examples of this model were made. Currently there are only 14 on the road in the UK.



Now,before any purists throw up their hands in horror at the "warts on the bonnet,"may I say 2 things. I saw these Cibies on 911s in France in the '80s and loved them. Also,I consulted The Pelican Forum before fitting them and followed a suggestion there and acquired a spare bonnet on eBay so that originality could be restored!

I bought the car in 1991 and for its 21st birthday in my charge,decided that I had had enough of "the lorry gear change!" Homework brought me to Pelican Parts and after discussions with the laconic Rob went for a Wevo Shifter and a Stromski SR010 coupler.
Because of the shipping charge and the horrendous UK import taxes,a friend in California brought it over to Europe as a presant for me! Fitting it was not quite as straight forward as the instructions led me to believe.

However,it all went back in the end!


Other mods? I did fit a Rennline tower brace strut which might be considered a bit effete but I only use the car on the road and I need to put the targa top somewhere courtesy of the British weather!

Current struggles. Just had to fit a new dashboard steering column bearing and now struggling with the vagaries of the 911 heating system.(Once again,many thanks to Forum members for their posts.)

Otherwise,it's pretty much as God made it.

And a huge thank you to all the Forum members for their amazing advice and know how.

The overall price after werk 1 modifications is certainly in the ball park and the car looks period correct from front spoiler onwards with the vast majority of 1982-1983 customers chosing the flatnose version. Including myself, I used to have a 1982 flatnose 930 S turbo through sonderwunschprogramm.

To be honest, its very unusual to see one with normal fenders and headlamps. Have noticed a few items on photos, but then again it was down to the customers wishes. The centre consule looks similar to Gembella model and to the best of my knowledge, this wasn't available from the choice of 3 consoles available at the time. The radio is also one that I've never seen, so its a very special car and low milage.

Best regards

Ken
Sonderwunsch = Special Wishes.. get it the way you want it!

Also, if you look at the bumper trim on these early special wishes cars, that trim is reminiscent of the bumper deco trim used on the long-hood 911S. Its the same width, shape etc.. but without the aluminum under-trim.

This would not be considered a slantnose delete. There was no such thing until after late 86-87 when slantnose became an option. When this car was built, the pieces were basically ale cart.

That style washer nozzle was actually available in late 78. There is a serial# cut-off as to when the factory stopped using the snorkels.. cars produced after that # had the flush style washers. This car was produced in 80 -81

And there you have it, produced at "A time when anything was possible with Porsche."
Remember, this car was built in the "go-go 80's and if you had wanted a car in paint to sample Mary Kay Pink with this style bumper and a duck tail.. and you had the means to pay for it, you'd get it. That's what the Special Wishes/Sonderwunsch dept. was all about. Whatever level of trim, body styling, and/or level of engine mods you could afford, they were available to you.

Beautiful car and thanks for sharing!

^^^^thats funny you mention pink, growing up in Jersey City I remember seeing a metallic pink 911. Which was confiscated by the Police and used as an undercover police car. Pretty cool car....perfect for those times.

Bump anyone have more pictures on this very special sonderwunsch 930?

This is by far the most impressive special special wishes porsche I have ever seen.

What is most interesting is this is a very early sonderwunsch program 930 circa 1982.

Seeing these cars and the fabulous 80s makes me want to get a mirror tile and a razor blade.

Now how does their asking price look to you? This auction was merely weeks ago.

https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/po18/the-porsche-70th-anniversary-auction/lots/r0043-1985-porsche-911-turbo-flat-nose-coupe/722647

Itís a flip, they just paid 246k for it. Gonna take a long time for someone willing to pay them that kind of profit for it.
