A member of the L4P forums photographed a classic example of overkill, featuring a rare Porsche which received a bad make over.
The Porsche 930 is a 911 Turbo produced between 1975 and 1989. In total 21,589 cars were produced, but only 948 of those were built as a slantnose.
Porsche offered a Flachbau (slantnose) 930 under the Sonderwunschprogramm (special order program) beginning in 1981. It was basically a 930 but with a 935 style slantnose instead of the regular 911 front end. Each Flachbau unit was handcrafted by remodeling the front fenders. The slantnose design of the Porsche 930 was employed to provide greater aerodynamics.
Despite the rarity of this car, the owner added another wing on top of the rear wing. Furthermore some chrome details have been added. The Porsche also received some new rims and a diamond-styled 20 inch emblem.
What do you think, is this overkill or not? Should a rare car like the Porsche 930 Slantnose kept original? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.
Totally fits the 80’s style.
the car possibly started as a salvage replica to begin with the slantnose project…
It’s not overkill, it’s a 935 replica. If you can’t tell a Group 5 replica from ricer faggotry, close your blog.
Slightly overkill. I still think the Slantnose Turbo was one of Porsche’s best looking machines.
