The word Sonderwunsch has a special meaning to many Porsche fans worldwide, with many gravitating towards cars that have passed through this elusive place. Translated, it means "Special Wishes", Porsche's special department where those with the wherewithal could personalize and upgrade to their hearts content. Located across the street from the main Porsche factory, Werks 1 was responsible for a limited number of special cars to wear the Porsche badge, with one type of car in particular that is now known worldwide: the 930 Turbo Flachbau "Slantnose".

Originally created for a particular client wanting a car that looked similar to Porsche's mega 935 racecar, it didn't take long until other clients were requesting the same type of upgrades for their future cars. In addition to the special slantnose, clients could request a number of upgrades both cosmetic and mechanical from the special department, anything from engine upgrades to full leather interiors in the wildest combinations imaginable. These options were not available from Porsche's normal production assembly line, which is why it was required for the special wishes department to perform the necessary modifications. From 1982 to 1986, less than 250 total examples were built in the special wishes department across the street. Porsche would send a factory car across the road to Sonderwunsch once completed, where the car would then be modified to the client's wishes. An unlimited choice of options also came with a hefty price tag, where it was not at all surprising that a completed slantnose would almost double the cost of a standard 930 Turbo.

In 1987 Porsche began building Slantnoses on the factory line, taking over the job that the Sonderwunsch originally had and producing these series of cars from 1987 to 1989. Finding an original Slantnose that was built by the Special Wishes department is a rare find, especially those that still retain their originality and period-correct upgrades. Between 1987 and 1989, there were reportedly around 600 slantnoses produced by Porsche's normal production assembly line, making these original 1982-1986 Special Wishes/Sonderwunsch slantnose cars incredibly rare.

This Porsche 911 Turbo Slantnose was ordered by an American, named William Blincoe. Located in Atlanta, Georgia, he ordered this Turbo Slantnose brand new from Hahn Sportwagen in Stuttgart, Germany. Unique to the Turbo Slantnoses were two different options list, one from the Porsche factory for the "base" car, and another for all of the upgrades performed by Sonderwunsch. The factory car was delivered as a 911 Turbo Coupe, optioned with: Special Color, Interior special color, Special shocks, Heavy duty battery, Limited slip differential, Electric outside mirror, Left sports seat, Right sports seat, Alarm, Front windshield with graduated tint, Electric sunroof, and Leather piping around seat covers. The car, before any upgrades began, had an MSRP of 102,382.86 DM. Once the car went across the street, the real fun began.

Werks 1 not only built the slantnoses, but they were the same place where RSRs, 934s, 935s, 936s, and cars of that caliber were built. Essentially the "race shop" and the skunkworks for Porsche, Werks 1 was where the special and secret projects often took place. Under the special works program, the Turbo received a host of upgrades as specified by William Blincoe. These options included the special 930S slantnose front spoiler with integrated oil cooler (not available on American versions), slantnose body with integrated louvers, Stage 2 engine performance package (which included a larger intercooler, upgraded turbocharger, high performance camshafts, and a 4-pipe exhaust) which boosted power to a conservatively-rated 330hp, upgraded suspension, 3-spoke leather steering wheel, custom center console with instrumentation, electronic digital boost gauge, upgraded leather options, side skirts, rear quarter panel brake cooling ducts, and an upgraded stereo system. For all of these upgrades the cost totaled in at 69,968.29 Deutschemarks (about 70% of the cost of a 930 Turbo), for a total of 172,351.15 Deutschemarks for the entire car!
