An iconic car and one of only 144 models delivered to the US market in 1987.
Originally provided in 1981 through Porsche’s special order program, the ‘Flat Nose’ option added a few distinctive features to the iconic 911 Turbo models. The sloped fenders at the front as well as the retractable headlights and air vents improved the car’s brakes and engine air-cooling. The design also took inspiration from the Porsche 935 racing car, giving the model an even more dynamic look. In 1987, only 144 cars with this option reached the US market. This gem is one of them. The car boasts the original bar code stickers on the doors, under the decklid, and on the hood. Owned by one collector for all of its life, this Porsche 911 slant nose car is in pristine condition and it has only 25,000 miles on board.
A powerful 3.3-liter, 282-hp turbocharged flat six-cylinder air-cooled engine combines with a four-speed manual transmission. Fuchs wheels add a touch of contrast to the Grand Prix White paint finish, while burgundy leather gives the cabin a refined look and feel. Other features include a sunroof, limited-slip differential, multi-position driver’s seat and air conditioning as well as a radio mounted on the dash. The car also comes with tools, books, and an extra steering wheel. The Porsche COA and comprehensive paperwork are also included. If you feel in love with this Porsche 911 slant nose vehicle, keep in mind that it will go up for auction in 2018 through the RM Sotheby’s auction house. Photographs© Robin Adams and RM Sotheby’s.
