Auction Block: 1988 Porsche 911 Turbo ‘Flat Nose’

It is always nice when racing design and engineering trickles down to street ready vehicles, and Porsche’s special order program of the early 80’s was charged with making that happen as customers squawked for the track ready styling of the 935 for their street machines.

It was too bad though as US auto regulators banned the import of the 911 Turbo Flachbau for safety concerns until Porsche was able to appease lawmakers with modifications to the headlights. First brought on shore in 1988, each of the 145 produced 911 Turbo ‘Flat Nose’ coupes delivered to America was a hand fabricated factory one off, causing a sticker price one and a half times that of the standard model. This particular example has been cared for by a handful of US owners while only racking 29,000 original miles, so it still has plenty of road life left.

Purchase: $200,000+
