Description

1987 PORSCHE 911 CARRERA 3.2 TURBO LOOK CABRIOLET:
--Marine Blue metallic with Champagne and Marine Blue leather interior, Beige carpeting, Blue convertible top, Rare M491 Factory Turbo Look, 3.2 Liter Flat 6-cylinder engine, 5-speed manual gearbox, Matching Numbers, Air conditioning, Well serviced.

The Carrera 3.2 is admired as the pinnacle development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963. These final G-Series cars replaced the SC Series cars in 1984. They were the last of the original Porsche 911 design before the 964 bodies launched in 1990. All Carrera 3.2’s feature galvanized bodies, which ensured these classics would be far less prone to rust than their early models which were non-galvanized.

This original factory optioned M491 Turbo-Look Carrera Cabriolet is rare with only 1,684 produced worldwide. Due to emissions restrictions during the early to mid-1980's, the 911 Turbo cars were not legal for US importation. In 1984, Porsche resurrected the M491 option giving these cars everything the Turbo cars had but with a normally aspirated 3.2 Liter engines. This extremely rare option cost about $12,000 at the time. This cabriolet was also fitted with desirable options including air conditioning, cruise control and an electric soft top.

This M491 Cabriolet has benefited from proper maintenance and care throughout its entire life. Originally sold in Texas, it remained there until its recent ownership in France. The 911 has recently received a full repaint in its original Marine Blue metallic color. This rare cabriolet feels tight and drives exceptionally well. With a large service history file, it was most recently serviced with new tires and a new clutch slave cylinder.

This rare M491 Cab is complete with its original books, tire kit, spare wheel, jack and large service history file. It is excellent throughout and ready for immediate enjoyment.
