Currently for sale at Code.9 International, a Porsche dealer just outside of Tokyo.. for near-enough-makes-no-difference 22million yen. Which for additionally dramatic effect thanks to todays not particularly flash Australian dollar, is the equivalent of $260,000 to me. Ouch.
1988 930 Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet Flatnose.
Absolutely top-of-the-line as far as factory efforts went. Its a turbo, its a cab... and then has the Porsche Sonderwunsch-programm (special order program) flatnose bodywork? Deluxe.
Aerodynamic in the daytime, while front-mounted air-brakes at night... you lose the signature Porsche front.. whatever, I dont care. It's different, its iconic of an era, and it looks great!
As along with those sleek front fenders and pop-up light units; there's the lower and side skirting, and huge side strakes before the rear wheels. From any angle other than looking directly at the rear, you could tell its something special.
At this point its worth mentioning how good this looks in the dealers spotlight-lit photoset. Cant help but imagine cruising through a city on a nice night.. it just looks so sinister..
So there we have it.
When everything Porsche these days is Singer Reimagined, Magnus Walker, or wild RWB conversions.. here's a little Gembella or Rinspeed-esque factory cool. I love it.
So yeah - who wants to help me rob that bank?
