Chassis no. WP0ZZZ93ZHS000246. Guards Red over Champagne leather. Factory power kit, gold BBS wheels, Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, sunroof, snorkely brake light, Sony cassette stereo, wood-trimmed dash, special steering wheel, two extra under dash glove boxes, heated seats.

Evaluation: Documented genuine Sonderwunsch (Special Wish) Slantnose car. A few chips throughout and some odd discoloration on the whale tail but mostly good paint. Clean wheels. Tidy engine bay. Lightly worn seats that match the 46,135 miles on the odometer, but the interior looks quite good. A neat 930 packed with special features and well-maintained.

Bottom Line: Real Slantnose 930s can command a 30 percent premium over standard cars. They don’t often come to market and this one’s extra special features make it even more of a standout. It was a $210,000 no-sale on Bring a Trailer in 2018 and a $207,000 no-sale on the Porsche focused Pcarmarket online platform just this May but, surprisingly, it had much better luck with Mecum. This is a reasonable number, around twice what a “normal” 1987 930 in this condition typically sells for these days.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
