Sold for $285,500 at 2021 RM Sothebys : Monterey.
This 'Flat-Nose' 911 Turbo Cabriolet is powered by a numbers-matching engine with 3,501 on the odometer. It wears the unique, factory 'Flat-Nose' design and is equipped with a turbocharged engine. Porsche was unable to export its Type 930 Turbocharged version of the 911 into the United States after 1979, as it could not comply with emissions regulations. Six years later, a new electronic engine management system was installed to control exhaust emissions, allowing it to re-enter the U.S. market.

During the six-year hiatus, wealthy U.S. clients asked the factory to create a street-legal version of the 935 Group 5 race car under its Special Wishes Program (Sonderwunsch Programm), now called Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. The result was a highly modified 911 with retractable headlights built into a flat, aerodynamic nose, louvered front fenders, air intakes built into the muscular rear quarter, and a larger rear spoiler that housed an intercooler atop the engine lid.

In 1987, this optional became formalized by the factory with option number 505, also known as the 930S, for the U.S. market, and option 506 for the 'Rest of the World,' as Porsche called it. For the U.S.-market, the 505 option added $23,244 to the base price.

This Porsche 911 'Flat-Nose' Turbo Cabriolet was completed on June 15th of 1988 and left the factory wearing a Guards Red exterior over a black leather interior. It rode on Fuchs wheels that were color mated to the exterior paintwork. Additional options included a power-operated soft top, limited-slip differential, an alarm system, and a Blaupunkt radio cassette player.
