History of the slant nose Porsche 911:
Porsche offered a "Flachbau" ("flatnose" or "slantnose") 930 under the "Sonderwunschprogramm" (special order program) beginning in 1981, an otherwise normal 930 with a 935-style slantnose instead of the normal 911 front end. Each Flachbau unit was handcrafted by remodeling the front fenders (option code M505). So few were built that the slantnose units often commanded a high premium price, and an initial premium of up to 60 per cent (highly individualized cars even more) over the standard price.
Nine hundred forty-eight units were built. The Flachbau units delivered in Europe usually featured the 330 hp (246 kW) performance kit. In the late 1970s Porsche tuners such as Ruf and Kremer (and others) began modifying customer cars with the “slant nose” front ends popularized by the factory racing 935s. Not a company to miss an obvious opportunity, in 1981 Porsche announced its own special-order slant nose front-end treatment.
Originally available only in Europe, the 930S was then included as part of Porsche’s 1985 program to make its full range of cars and accessories available worldwide.
