Styling for the “Slantnose” 911 Turbo came from the legendary Porsche 935 race car. This factory option was executed on the raw body shell, allowing Porsche’s anti-corrosion warranty to be retained. Included in the price of $23,244 were sloped front fenders, retractable headlamps and air vents to ensure efficient cooling for the brakes and engine. Mechanicals, including the 3.3-liter engine and 4-speed transmission, are identical to regular production Turbos of the era.

Finished in Nougat Brown Metallic with a Mahogany leather interior, this Turbo comes with service records and a Certificate of Authenticity. The vehicle cannot be sold in California due to emission requirements. The title is noted as “in transit.”
