 Introduced in 1984 and possibly the ultimate version of the 3.2 Carrera was the ‘Option M491-Turbo-look’ or ‘Supersport’ as it later became known in the UK. Initially, Option M491 was only available on a Coupé and had to be ordered through the "Special Wishes" program, but was later extended to include the Targa and Cabriolet in 1985, before becoming an official model available from dealers in 1986. From 1987 onwards these dramatic versions were officially known as SSE (Supersport Equipment), and the cars in this final three-year run up until 1989 were fitted with the more user-friendly G50 Getrag gearbox and a hydraulic clutch.'M491' was not just a sop to the excesses of the 1980s, with flared arches evoking the appearance of some dramatic Porsche models from the past, but was a popular option offering the 'macho' good looks of the Turbo without the mechanical complexities. However, it was not cheap adding over £10,000 to the cost of a standard variant by the end of the model’s life in 1989, possibly explaining the relatively small build numbers.  The SSE spec also included a limited slip differential, the stiffer suspension and superior braking system from the 930 Turbo, a wrap-around deep chin-spoiler, the famous ‘tea-tray’ rear spoiler, and wider Fuchs alloy wheels.  The rarity of Supersport models is undeniable, especially in right-hand drive, but official figures are hard to come by as technically the 'Turbo-look' option was, just that, an option and not a type so records do not exist but a respected source quotes that just 651 M491 cars (including all Coupés, Targas and Cabriolets) were manufactured between 1984 and 1989 with only 75 of those being in C16 UK-spec and half of those were Cabriolets.  According to the 'Turbo-look Register', there are currently 27 UK-owned Supersport Cabs of which only five are finished in black.This lovely Supersport Cabriolet is a C16, UK, right-hand drive car supplied through A.F.N Porsche in Guildford and first registered on the 03/03/89. It's finished in black with a white interior and features, as standard, a manual G50 gearbox, Fuchs alloy wheels, electric door mirrors, power steering, air conditioning, CD Player, central locking, electric windows, leather seats, lumbar support, and an alarm. In addition, it was ordered with a number of factory options including heated front sport seats, graduated tinted windscreen, Turbo-look body style (Factory M491), Harmann analogue sound system, Porsche Script door entry guards (black) and a white full-leather interior.It has been enjoyed by only three owners, covered just 75,282 miles, has a great service history, and has recently benefited from various OEM replacement parts including new power window switches, brake pads and hoses, new thermostat, heating box and headlight seals. A brand new full exhaust system has been fitted at a cost of £5,000, and the tonneau cover has been replaced as have the door cards and locking wheel nuts.The gleaming black coachwork remains in excellent condition as does the crisp black and white interior and the smart alloy wheels and there is plenty of life left in the tyres. The car is accompanied by a large history folder detailing the mileage, previous owners, old MOTs (16), service invoices, a number of dealer booklets, and its original service book. The service record is up to date, most recently in the hands of Porsche specialists, Export 56. It's currently in professional dry storage but has been fastidiously maintained and very lightly used over the last two years. This is simply a lovely and genuine example of one of the most sought-after models from a classic period in the history of the 911 and viewing is highly recommended.
