Porsche introduced the luxurious and outrageously fast 911 Turbo Carrera to the U.S. for its 1975 model year and took the enthusiast world by storm. Its huge fender flares, wide alloy wheels, race car-like “Whale-tail” spoiler, and brilliant performance set a new benchmark for sports cars. Turbos have topped the list of every Porschephile’s want list ever since. For 1989, Porsche renamed the Turbo with Option M505 the “930 S” and raised the base list price by $29,555 to $100,530. The 1989 model was the first offered with the newly designed G50/50 five-speed transmission, an improved and stronger gearbox. Gear ratios had been altered to provide better acceleration and drivability. There was a new hydraulic clutch borrowed from the Carrera, and the center of the rear torsion bar tube was modified to accept the new gearbox and clutch. To improve handling, the rear torsion bars increased to 27 mm, while the rear swaybar was reduced to 18 mm, and Bilstein gas-filled shocks and struts were employed.
The “Slant Nose” (or Flat-nose) nick name comes from the option which was inspired by the 1979 Le Mans-winning 935 race car and its unique slanted front aerodynamic body kit. This 911 Turbo is only 1 of 60 built with the slant nose option for the 1989 production year and was also ordered with paint matched Fuchs alloy wheels direct from Porsche’s Special Wishes department. This very rare combination of options makes this vehicle a 1 of 1 produced for the 1989 production year. In 2010 the vehicle received a comprehensive overhaul from Canepa Design in Scotts Valley, California before being sold and moved to a collector in Ontario. Coachwerks purchased the vehicle in May of 2019 and performed a mechanical inspection along with routine maintenance to bring this vehicle ready for sale.
