Description

History

Since its introduction in 1964, the Porsche 911 has continued to evolve and become more powerful. In 1975, a turbocharger was added to the flat-six engine, giving rise to the 930. With 300 bhp, it became one of the most iconic versions of the model which also served as the basis for the development of the 934 competition car. The Group 5 (Silhouette) regulations allowed Porsche to go even further with the 935. The 935 was distinguished by its long, plunging bonnet (hence the name "flat nose"), a very imposing rear spoiler and an engine whose initial power of 600 bhp was to exceed 800 bhp when a second turbo was fitted. With no less than 123 victories (including the 1979 Le Mans 24 Hours), the Porsche 935 became a legendary racing car.
Such a spectacular body could not leave some of the brand's customers unmoved, so the Porsche Exclusive department came up with the idea of offering a road-going model derived from the racing 935, called the SE. In fact, it is a Porsche 930 with a sloping bonnet, retractable headlights (from the 944) and a large air intake in the rear wings. Power was increased to 330 bhp and the car was fitted with the G50 5-speed gearbox. Sold at the time at almost double the price of the 930, this SE version (code M506, or M505 for the US) was produced in only 948 units.
The car on offer comes from the USA, where it was delivered on 12 January 1989. It is one of the 250 examples of the last series produced. It has had only three owners. The odometer shows only 22600 miles (36500 km), certified, of which 500 have been driven with its current owner who acquired it in August 2020 and holds the registration certificate in his name.
This Porsche benefits from many factory options including sunroof, air conditioning, short shifter and auto-lock axle. It has always had the benefit of a garage. It is not pledged and comes with the manufacturer's manuals, service book and 2 sets of keys. The car was appraised in October 2020 and valued at 220,000 euros. It has just passed the technical inspection.

Exterior

The bodywork, as confirmed by the expert's report, is in very good condition and shows no traces of rust (photo 032). The paint (pearly white) is original. The expert report mentions a layer of paint over the entire front end (wings, bonnet, bumper) which can be explained by the fact that these cars were taken off the assembly line and then assembled entirely by hand. According to the owner, it has never been damaged. It is equipped with the large rubber bumpers typical of cars sold on the American market (photo 021). The retractable headlights are in good condition (photo 019). The fuel filler flap has its leather protection (photo 023). All seals are in good condition. The windows are engraved. The 16-inch steel wheels are equipped with Toyo 205/55 R16 front tyres and 245/45 ZR16 rear tyres fitted in 2018 (photo 029). Since then, the car has been driven very little. We note the presence of anti-theft nuts. The spare wheel is of the space saver type.

Interior

The interior is in light grey leather. The seats are fully electric (photo 049), and in very good condition (photos 037 and 038). The steering wheel is of the Sport type. The speakers on the rear deck are an original option, as well as the Porsche car radio with CD player. All instrumentation is in working order, including the watch. The expertise report mentions that the air conditioning does not work. The seller tells us that it only needs a gas refill. The original tool kit, complete with compressor for the spare wheel, comes with the car (photo 028). The velour carpet in the boot, another option, is in very good condition. The audible alarm is original.

Mechanical

The matching numbers engine (68K00280) shows no oil leaks. A catalytic converter is fitted. The logbook shows that the car was serviced in the brand's workshops until 2001, but there is no traceability from this date (14133 miles). There are no maintenance invoices. According to the seller, the car was recently checked by RS Motors in Ingelmunster, a specialist workshop in Belgium. The technical inspection of 16 September 2021 does not mention any anomalies.
