THE PORSCHE 930S-N

By combining a turbocharged engine with open coachwork, modified in competition style, Porsche created what is considered today to be one of the most desirable late model 911s - the 911 Turbo SE ('Flat Nose' or 'Slant Nose') cabriolet. Group 4 homologation rules, requiring 400 road cars to be built, had spurred the development of 'Project 930' - the original 911 Turbo. In October of 1974, Ernst Fuhrmann officially unveiled the first Turbo production model. The Turbo married a KKK turbocharger to a completely reworked 3.0-litre engine, in road trim a combination that delivered 260bhp for a top speed of 153mph. The Turbo's characteristic flared wheel arches and 'tea tray' rear spoiler were carried over from the Carrera model, while the interior was the most luxurious yet seen in a 911. The engine was enlarged to 3.3 liters for 1978, gaining an inter-cooler in the process; power increased to 300bhp (265bhp for US models) and the top speed of what was the fastest-accelerating road car of its day went up to 160mph.

The 911 Turbo's raison d'être - the racing 935 - had pioneered what would come to be known as the 'slant' or 'flat' nose, and this new look was soon in high demand from 911 customers. Early on, Kremer Racing offered a conversion service that was later taken up by the factory's own Customer Department for special order (Sunderwunschen) in 1981. The race inspired slant nose body work would not become an official Porsche option until 1986. 930s equipped with the rare modified panels were modeled after the 935 race car. The converted front wings were steel, incorporating cooling vents and pop-up headlamps (early examples had them in the air dam). The car's side skirts lead to the rear which had extra cooling intakes ahead of the rear wheels. Along with the body modifications came an even more luxurious full leather interior. The interior was graced with luxuries such as air conditioning and special electrically adjustable and heated Recaro seats. Production of these modified 930s remained quite low due to the very high cost that they carried.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

1 of just 147 US 1989 Slant Nose Turbos and 1 of the less than 30 ultra-rare/desirable cabrio models, this car is very special indeed. In 1989 it was purchased new in Las Vegas, NV by tennis legend Andre Agassi. When ordering new, Mr. Agassi checked all the right boxes, including the $30,000 Slant Nose body option. The original window sticker shows the car's cost totaling over $116,000, an astounding figure for the time. It was delivered in gorgeous Grand Prix White (or perhaps "Tennis White" to Mr. Agassi) over black leather, the latter of which has been professionally converted to red. Andre Agassi would lovingly care for the car until 1996, when he then passed it on to the next owner at one of his famous charity auctions, benefiting The Andre Agassi Charitable Foundation.

The 930S is believed to have been sold through a Connecticut dealer and eventually found its way to Canada in 2007. From 2007 to 2015 it was primarily used as a show car, covering approximately 1,000 miles in the 9 year span, prior to being acquired by the current owner. Having covered less than 35,000 miles from new, it presents beautifully. Since taking ownership, the consignor has had a wonderful time taking the rarely seen Turbo to concours events, winning multiple awards including, Best in Class and Best in Show. This magnificent piece of Porsche history is reported by its owner to run and drive like new and will surely provide its next owner with years of enjoyment. The car currently wears a European front bumper/spoiler and a set of custom CCW wheels but also includes the original factory, American bumper/spoiler and black Fuchs wheels. Along with the original wheels, the car will be accompanied by its toolkit, compressor, manuals, a copy of the build sheet, and Andre Agassi title. This special, final year 930 turbo is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire one of Porsche's lowest production models.
