One of only fifty genuine factory-produced 930 SE low-build cars.

  • A fine example of a build under the Porsche Special Wishes Program

  • Very low ownership and only 21,075 miles

  • Authenticated by numerous Flachbau specialists

  • A comprehensive history file corroborating its provenance

  • Stunning colour combination of Grand Prix White and a blue/black interior

The SE ‘Flachbau’ was a fully bespoke, hand-built option for buyers of Porsche's 930 Turbo in the mid-eighties, and was over twice as expensive as a standard 930 Turbo when new. Built by the Special Wishes Department, the Flachbau cars were essentially normal 930s with the dramatic, 935-style, sloping front end, and were equipped with an uprated engine of 330bhp (from 300), Dual Exit exhaust and an upgraded interior featuring pockets under both sides of the dashboard, a unique centre console, steering wheel and gear lever knob with a gold insert. It also benefited from a limited-slip differential, heated front seats, and a sunroof.

The term “Flachbau" literally translates as “Low build” however in the UK they have become known as Flatnose, Slantnose or SE cars. In later years Porsche supplied a works “Flachbau kit” designed to be retro-fitted to 930 Turbos, however, the 911 here is one of only 50 genuine Factory-produced Porsche 930SE Flachbaus and was built in the summer of 1986 under the ‘Sonderwunchprogramm' (Special Wishes Program) and supplied by Motortune to its first owner, Ronald Boardman, on the 1st of August 1986. We understand from the previous owner that technically he became the car's second owner when, on the 3rd. of February 2001, he transferred title to his company, Sutton Oil. The car was then bought on 7 December 2005 by Simon Mackriel who is a Flatnose enthusiast inspired by the Porsche 935 racers that dominated the 'World Championship of Makes'. A fellow Flatnose owner and enthusiast had spotted the car for sale at Slades Garage and told Simon about it. Simon engaged Phil Clark of TPC 300 to PDA the car along with Barry Smith the ex-Chairman of the Porsche Club, both recognised as experts in these rare and distinctive cars. They spent hours examining the car including looking underneath the headlamp covers to see the tag numbers which are unique to these cars and they were still there! Also, there are small square labels with the initials of the craftsman at the 'special wishes' factory who did the leather stitching on the hand-built Flatnose cars, and they are still on the car today! They also did a full PDA, listing anything that needed to be done to the car to bring it to a state of perfection.

After purchase by Simon, the car went up to Wigan to TPC 300 where Phil Clark started to do all the work suggested in his report including special paintwork with the original correct unique paint. To keep costs down he did this around other work and the car ended up being there for five years in dry storage! During this time it also had a full wheel alignment and suspension set up by 'Centre Gravity'. The TPC 300 bill on 3/04/11 came to £7,193.40 with the mileage at 19,520. In 2015 it was taken to Dave Griffiths Racing Ltd. for additional work, including a rebuilt warm-up regulator, new plugs, all new exhaust gaskets (important with 911 Turbos), brake calipers overhauled with new Flexi-pipes, and fresh fluids. The MOT at this point (8/09/15) indicated mileage of 20,724.

The car is accompanied by an astonishing amount of history and provenance. There are 8 service stamps in the book and 2 brake fluid notifications with work having been carried out by Motortune, AFN Brompton Road, AFN Reading, TPC 300, Dave Griffiths Racing, and Loe Bank Motors. There are a number of invoices in the file along with 11 earlier MOT certificates which corroborate the car's low mileage. The obligatory book pack contains the red Porsche service book wallet, owners guide to Porsche ownership, service book listing all the dealerships, an original Porsche accessory brochure/booklet,
