911 Cabriolet Turbo Look
1985 Porsche 911 Cabriolet "Turbo Look"
Porsche was not selling the 930 Turbo in the USA in 1984. In fact it had not been sold here since 1979. When Porsche updated the 911 for the 1984 model year by increasing displacement to 3.2 liters and reviving the Carrera name, the new 911 remained Porsche's flagship performer.
Porsche decided to offer a special option package that same year called "M491". It was known as 'Supersport' around the world. But here in the USA we nicknamed it "Turbo Look". Option code M491 included the wide fender flares, wider Fuchs wheels and the "tea tray" rear spoiler of the 930 Turbo. It also sported the Turbo's suspension and brakes. M491 was available on the 911 Carrera Coupe, Cabriolet and Targa.
The car we offer here is one of just 389 Cabriolets built in 1985 with factory option M491 for the US market. This is a very rare car. The car has belonged to a local Las Vegas resident who maintained a second home in the Northern California wine country where this car has been kept most of its life. Upon selling his home earlier this year, the gentleman decided to offer it to us. This car has benefited from an earlier respray in the correct factory Black paint. The paint has held up well for its age.
This Carrera has received a major service by us including fluids, filters, plugs, valve adjustment and brake flush. We have also installed a new black leather dash, changed the right rear wheel bearing, front and rear lid supports, new motor "sound pad", AC service, new tires and an alignment. This car is ready for its next enthusiastic owner. Contact Porsche Classic Manager, Michael Deeb, @702-330-4665 or firstname.lastname@example.org
