1987 Porsche Carrera Cabriolet Slantnose Conversion
VIN WP0EB0913HS170350
Black with Black Interior

The ‘flachbau’ version of the 930 (known also as the 930S or ‘slantnose’ in English) was a factory produced version of the Turbo that evoked the revised front fenders featured on Porsche`s tremendously successful 935 race cars. To improve the aerodynamics of the venerable 911, the 935 featured flat fenders that became the car’s trademark, in addition to some other outlandish aerodynamic aids. The cars were ludicrously fast, winning Le Mans in 1979. Wanting to capture this unique look for their street cars, many aftermarket tuners produced their own versions of this bodywork for standard production street 930 Turbos starting in the early 1980s, though the quality of conversions varied tremendously, with some kits even being completed in fiberglass instead of steel. Porsche offered its own version of this bodywork for street cars as early as 1981, but only through its special order sonderwunsch (‘special wish’) program, and it was not until several years later that the slantnose became a regularly available albeit expensive option. In fact, by 1989, the M505 slantnose option cost about $25,000, above and beyond the already substantial $65,000 price tag of the standard 930. In addition to the revised front fenders, these cars also featured boxed rocker sill extensions and large vents let into the rear fenders, which admit air for the auxiliary oil cooler on the right side.

This particular car has 30,000 miles from new and is a naturally aspirated Carrera 3.2 Cabriolet equipped with desirable much-improved G50 transmission. The car has had three owners from new, although the first owner kept the car for just 700 miles. The second owner purchased the car in 1989 and had the slant nose conversion performed shortly after buying the car. The conversion was done to high standards using OEM parts, including front fenders, rear fenders with vents, boxed rockers, Turbo tail, and correct 7” and 9” fuchs.

The car was continuously maintained by Alpina Car Center in Napa, California and has records back to 1994. The car’s current owner purchased it in 2004 and continued to maintain it Alpina, with regular servicing with fluids, belts, complete AC rebuild including new drier and compressor, and valve adjustment.
