2.) If I recall correctly, the 1982 Sonderwunsch 930's were not offered with vented front fenders. I think they were flat ventless types.

3.) I don't think the front fog lamps were ever offered as flush mounted. They were of the recess variety.

4.) The front valence looks right, but judging from the photo, there is no front mounted oil cooler. Don't know if the front valence was ever offered without the front mounted oil cooler.

Only until recently has Porsche been able to authenticate the Sonderwunsch Werks cars. Porsche Classic division has been able to authenticate through PCNA's Certificate of Authenticity group.

Without you doing an on-site inspection, you would be taking a risk with any online transaction.

Good luck in your search.
Greatly appreciate your reply. Its interesting that you mention the ventless front fenders as I just came across a yellow early slantnose here about midway through this thread on page 19 that had the headlamps in the bumper and that car was actually manufactured after this chiffon one so my suspicions are on ultra high alert right now. He claims that the COA references the slant nose which i'm suspicious of. He claims that it does have a front mount oil cooler
