DT-Direct 1985 Porsche 911 M491 Carrera Cabriolet

Now available in Deal Tank Direct is this 1985 Porsche Carrera Cabriolet Turbo Look presented in Guard’s Red over a black leather interior.  First offered in 1984, the M491 “Turbo Look” package gave customers the option to add the widened body styling, suspension and brakes of the Turbo model to a standard naturally aspirated Carrera.  Originally sold in Florida, this 1985 example was purchased by its current owner in 2006 with only a few thousand miles added since that time.  Reported to be in outstanding highly original condition, this factory Turbo Look Carrera is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner with approximately 72k miles showing on the odometer.

The Guard’s Red finish is noted to be in excellent condition and the black cabriolet top is also said to be in great shape.  A collection of detailed images has been provided in the photo gallery.  The optional M491 Turbo Look package adds widened front and rear fenders, a front spoiler extension and a distinctive tea-tray rear wing.  This Carrera features black stone guards and factory Fuchs wheels which have been professionally refinished to as-new standards.

Inside, you will find a black leather interior with an upgraded Alpine radio.  The cabin is noted to be in fantastic condition and the seller confirms that the original radio will also be included in-sale.  All gauges, electrical components and accessories are reported to be fully functional.

This Carrera is equipped with its original air-cooled 3.2 L flat-six engine which sends 207 HP to the rear wheels by way of a number’s matching 5-speed manual transmission.  The M491 package also adds Turbo-spec brakes and suspension providing for improved cornering and stopping power.  A straight pipe exhaust system and cat-delete have been installed for enhanced sound, although the original exhaust will be also included in-sale.  Routine maintenance has been performed and this 911 is stated to be in excellent running order.   The seller indicates that a fresh oil and filter change will be carried out prior to delivery.

The sale of this 911 will include the original books, tools and a set of two keys.  Do not miss out on your chance to own this factory Turbo Look Carrera Cabriolet.

    @c2silver the seller called in and asked us to respond on his behalf.

    He is happy to accommodate a PPI. There are several independent Porsche shops in the Huntington, NY area.

    Would you agree to a PPI at my expense ?
    If there is a shop near by (I am not local to you), let me know, and I will check in with them.

    Thank you for the update.
    Will wait for your new photo(s) and tire dates.

    @c2silver Hi , I’m the seller ,tried to respond to you more than once but ran into glitches . Don’t really have maintainable records because I do it myself . Don’t know date on the tires but they are close to new and in mint condition . I do believe paint is original because there is no clear coat , however I believe that one rear fender may have had tiny paint work . Top is in great condition for an original , will try to get photo and tire date on Monday . Please bear with me because my house is being renovated and I have everyone’s tools and materials in my garage . The car is safe and sound in a garage one town over , haven’t had a chance to get over there . Thanks for your patience . Mike

    @c2silver hello. We had a phone call with the seller today as he is unable to get to a computer.

    He will attempt to get a picture of the top by Mon. It is in good condition with wear as expected with an original top.

    He said never any accidents, one fender may have been resprayed prior to his ownership. He said the paint shows beautifully and notes that all rubber trim on the car is in exceptional condition.

    He has owned the car since 2006 and has put new tires since his ownership but he’s not certain of the dates. We will try to get the exact dates when he gets the photo of the top. We apologize for the delay and please let us know if there’s anything else we can assist with.

    3.Evidence to support recent history of maintenance would be appreciated.

    4. Is it all original paint work?

    Sweet car,
    I had a perfect white one of these a few years ago, and regretted selling it,
    hard to evaluate with so little information about the car.
    Is there a price?
    If the Auction is over, the seller could post a buy it now price which would help.

  • MikeC (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @Coachmule I’d love to tell you asking price because I believe that’s how it should be done , however my rep says that offers should be submitted . I left you my number in a previous email if you want to talk about the car

  • MikeC (seller) 2 weeks, 3 daysago

    @Coachmule No underside rust or leaks

  • Coachmule (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 4 daysago

    I'm curious why people post vehicles for sale and never respond? Exactly why I almost never look at this web site. BAT is much better sorry but the facts are out there. I've tried to talk to two different people zero response.

  • eric123406109 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    What is your asking price?

  • Coachmule (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    Can you send me your number to chat about car? No underside pics? Any rust? Where are you at price ?
