We are pleased to present this stunning 1987 Porsche 911 Carrera M491 Coupe finished in special order Granite Green Metallic over a Grey-Green interior. Marking the first year of the desirable G50 5-speed manual gearbox, this 1987 example represents one of the few M491 Turbo-Look Coupes reported to have been delivered to the U.S. in 1987. In addition to its wide Turbo-derived body, suspension, and brakes, this Coupe was factory optioned with Sports Seats and a limited-slip differential. Easily one of the most well-configured M491 examples on the market, this 1987 Carrera is now being offered for auction by its seller in Missouri while showing just over 36k miles on the odometer.
This Coupe is finished in the rare special-order color of Granite Green Metallic, and the paint is noted by the seller to be in excellent condition throughout (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). The M491 specification adds the wide fenders, front spoiler, and Tea Tray rear decklid of the 911 Turbo model. This particular example retains factory Fuchs wheels dressed in Toyo Proxes tires dated from 2017.
Inside, this 911 showcases a Grey-Green partial leather interior with highly desirable factory leather Sport Seats. Other original specifications include front seat heating and height adjustment, an intensified windscreen washer, headlamp washers, a central locking and alarm system, automatic heating control, automatic speed control, a luggage compartment with velour carpet, and a rear window wiper. An upgraded Porsche Classic Radio has been installed, and the seller describes the cabin to be in fantastic shape.
This Carrera derives 217 HP from an air-cooled 3.2 L flat-six engine paired with a 5-speed G50 manual gearbox featuring a factory optioned limited-slip differential. As an M491 example, this 911 also shares the widened suspension setup and larger brakes of the 911 Turbo. All available service history is provided on CARFAX and the seller reports no mechanical issues at this time.
This sale will include a toolkit, spare tire, and a clean title. Offering a truly outstanding configuration, this rare M491 Coupe is a clear choice for any air-cooled Porsche collector.
