1 of 44 “Sonderwunsche” 911’s produced in 1985 by Porsche, this rare Special Wishes example drives as well as it presents and comes with an extensive service file, Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche and Affidavit of Factory Original Features from marque expert Jack Pfluegler
This incredibly rare and desirable “Sonderwunsche” (Special Wishes) Factory Slant Nose 85′ 930 Turbo was imported to the United States by Scottsdale Porsche & Audi on 12-26-84. Spending most of its early life in the greater Atlanta, Georgia area, the first owner of record is Wally Nissen of San Luis Obispo, Ca who bought the car in 1993 from Classic Auto Sales Inc. in Omaha, Nebraska. Nissen owned and cared for the car for 14 years and in 2007 the current owner purchased the car. At the time of purchase by the current owner the odometer reading was 24,000 miles.
“SONDERWUNSCHE FLACHBAU” WERK I factory slant noses were made before the official slant nose production option package was initiated by Porsche in 1987. The SONDERWUNSCHE cars were made to order examples for fastidious clients containing multiple customizations processed as “special work orders”. The issue with pre-1987 slant noses is that Porsche did not consider this a factory production model, but rather, it was invoiced as a work order by the Werk I in-house custom workshop in Zuffenhausen, Germany. Consequently these cars do not have a line item on the Kardex (Porsche factory build sheet) signifying that the car is a SONDERWUNSCHE FLACHBAU, translated as “Special Request Flat Construction”. Since the owners rarely kept the original invoices one must look at the body features and the telltale signs of Porsche craftsmanship, engineering, and parts to validate an authentic special wishes slant nose. Given his impeccable Porsche credentials and history dating back to the 1950’s with the Porsche Factory and his considerable knowledge of this vehicle in particular, Jack Pfluegler was willing to sign an affidavit testifying to the factory born nature of the features seen on this exceptional highly original 930 Porsche example (the three page document attested to by Pfluegler can be seen in the picture gallery below).
With only 37,181 original miles from new, this Special Wishes Porsche has seen the highest levels of service throughout its history. Over the years the car has been serviced regularly by VPA Auto Repair Inc of San Luis Obispo while owned by Nissen and later handled regularly for the current owner by well known Porsche expert mechanic Jack Pfleugler of San Miguel. When the present owner bought the car, he had Pfleugler go through the engine completely and sort it properly to run to a very high standard. In the last 3 years, Pfluegler replaced the injectors/fuel pumps and also redid the fuel regulator and fuel head for the car along with general servicing over the past decade. The car runs exceptionally well today and is fully serviced. It has new struts, fuel pumps, air regulator and injectors.
As a very well kept and exceptionally original example, this car has all the hallmarks and desirable features available at the time from new, including most prominently, being 1 of 44 factory slant nose 930 Turbo’s produced in 1985. Still in a highly original condition (sans a new set of tires, wheels, new radio) the car presents incredibly well in Garnet Red/S2 over 99 Light Tan Leather Interior. This “Special Wishes” Porsche came stock with and its 930S engine along with a bigger intercooler and SC cams.
This 1985 “Sonderwunsche” 930 Turbo Porsche comes with a robust service file with records spanning most of the 1990’s through to today. It is also accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche North America, Special Wishes Affidavit from factory trained Porsche expert Jack Pfluegler, period photos and hand written ownership correspondence, original books, tools and spare tire.
