We are pleased to offer this 1984 Porsche 911 Carrera M491 Coupe finished in Quartz Grey Metallic over a Burgundy leather interior. Featuring the optional M491 package, this “Turbo Look” 911 is factory configured with the widebody, front and rear spoilers, brakes, and suspension of the Turbo model. Reported to have been maintained by its current owner since 1994, this lifelong west-coast example has undergone some major service including the rebuild and re-gearing of the 5-speed manual transmission by Rothsport Racing. It is now being offered by its seller in Oregon with approximately 136k miles shown on the odometer.
In 2004, this Carrera is said to have undergone a professional glass-out respray in its uncommon factory color of Quartz Grey Metallic (662/X5). During this time, all new body seals and exterior trim were installed and the seller indicates the finish to remain in very good overall condition (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). The factory M491 package includes the widebody, front spoiler, and Tea Tray rear decklid seen on the Turbo model. 16” Turbo-spec Fuchs wheels are equipped and dressed in new Bridgestone Potenza tires.
Inside, this 911 is appointed with an attractive Burgundy leather interior with factory Sport Seats. Other options include a sunroof, automatic speed control, and a Blaupunkt radio which is said to remain functional along with all other gauges and accessories.
This Carrera is powered by an air-cooled 3.2 L flat-six engine upgraded with SSI heat exchangers. 207 HP stock is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission which has been rebuilt and re-geared by Rothsport in 2008 at 130k miles. As an M491 example, this 911 features the upgraded Brembo brakes and wide suspension setup from the 930 Turbo model. Upgraded torsion bars have been installed as well. The following items are said to have been carried out under the current ownership at the corresponding intervals.
130K Miles (2008)
132K Miles (2011)
133K Miles (2015)
134K Miles (2016)
135K Miles (2018)

This sale will include a set of 2 keys, an owner’s manual, tools, and a spare tire. This well-maintained M491 Carrera offers the perfect opportunity for any air-cooled driving enthusiast, do not miss out.
