Video: Rare "flat-nosed" Porsche 911 Turbo Was Rated More Expensive Than Two New
Beverly Hills-based Marshall Goldman, a rare car dealership, has put up for sale a 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo convertible in an unusual Flachbau (or Slantnose) modification - less than a thousand of them. The sports car is priced at $ 398,900 (30.3 million rubles), while the new Porsche 911 Turbo convertible costs $ 183,600 in the US.
Porsche has been offering the Flachbau version since the early eighties as an optional package for the Porsche 911. This included a redesigned front end with different bumper, bonnet and fenders, and pop-up headlights. The work was carried out mostly by hand and was quite expensive (about 50 thousand dollars), which explains the rarity of such specimens.
- The sports car put up for sale can be considered even rarer, since about one and a half hundred 911 Flachbau were officially imported into the United States. Another factor influencing the price is the extremely modest mileage of the sports car: for 33 years of its existence, it covered only 5558 kilometers and, accordingly, is in excellent condition.
- The convertible is equipped with a 3.3-liter boxer turbo engine paired with a four-speed "mechanics". The seller does not name the engine output, but on this generation of the Porshe 911, such engines developed from 300 to 330 hp, and the acceleration time to 100 km / h was just over 5 seconds.
In early March, an even rarer Porsche was put up for sale - the tracked 911 RSR from 1974, valued at $ 2.2 million. It is alleged that it once belonged to the famous drug lord Pablo Escobar, and the equally famous racer Emerson Fittipaldi drove the car on the race tracks.
