Porsche 930 Turbo Slant Nose Fenders and Hood

  Spotted in New Hampshire is a set of Porsche 930 Turbo Slant Nose Fenders and Hood for $800 USD.  The seller states these were taken off of a 1976 Porsche 911 after a fire.  The hood and fenders are made of metal and will need to be sandblasted.   They are not bent or twisted in anyway. Does anyone want a slant nose conversion these days?

1991 Porsche 964 Turbo

  Spotted in Tarzana, California is a 1991 Porsche 964 Turbo for $119,000 USD.  The seller states this 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo is an unmodified one-owner coupe finished in Slate Grey Metallic with color-to-sample grey leather sport seats.The car has covered just under 52k miles since. It retains matching numbers, which recently serviced and inspected the car at a Porsche restoration facility. It is offered with the window sticker, records from 1992-2014, and a clean title. The car was optioned without a Turbo script on the engine lid, and a power sunroof is equipped up top. The car was ordered with automatic climate control and an optional factory CD player, which has since been replaced by a more modern unit. The factory airbag steering wheel remains in place along with other stock controls and instruments. Just under 52k miles are shown on the 6-digit odometer. Grey leather powered sport seats were colored to sample according to the included window sticker. Carpets are protected by multiple floor mats and bear debossed Turbo scripts on the rear seat backs. The vehicle just went under a full paint correction and all wheels have been refinished in the original silver. What do you think of this car?

1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE

  Spotted in New Jersey is a 1989 Lotus Esprit Turbo SE for $24,900 USD.   This is my favorite color combination of white with tan leather interior.  The seller states the car was just serviced and is a nice driver.  It has 44,000 original miles.   The driver seat is showing more wear and tear as expected.  The passenger seat looks like it had very little use.  Overall the interior looks good or its age.   The Peter Stevens body style produced from 1987 to 1993  seem to be creeping up in price these days.   Recently a red 1989 Turbo SE sold for $29,700 USD. What do you think of these 80’s super cars?
