This example of the 1987 Porsche 911 Turbo now converted into a 935DP Lightweight Flat Nose Turbo has Covered only 20,729 Miles from new and was Sold to the Current owner in February 2017.
This Stunning example was Originally supplied in 1987 by Porsche dealer Auto Zeitz in Bergish Gladbach in Germany. It was then an American, Fred Opert who was a renowned Racing Driver and Team Owner that first Purchased this Turbo to be consigned to DP Motorsport to be Converted into a 935DP Lightweight Slant Nose Turbo. The DP Motorsport Conversion included a Special Interior, Adjustable Turbo Boost, A Large Supercharging Pressure Gauge and the Full 935 Street Conversion known as DP935-1. The DP Conversion took 8 weeks to complete and the only original bodywork that remained original on the car was the roof panel.
From 1979 to 1988 DP Motorsport carried out 22 conversions in their factory and supplied a further 26 kits to dealers. However, these kits did not include the full factory treatment the in-house cars received, and some were used for competition (DP935-2).
The reason a Porsche Customer would order a top of the range Turbo and have it converted to a 935 by DP Motorsport lies deep in Porsche Motorsport History. The fact that the DP935 was also 80 to 190kgs lighter (depending on options) than a factory converted Slant Nose Turbo and was the only Slant Nose version available with and adjustable Turbo Boost Control.
Fred Opert took delivery of the car in December 1987; however, the car was exported two years later back to Europe in 1989 but this time to the UK. Since its arrival in the UK, it has been owned by a succession of investor/collectors.
