1985 Porsche 911 Carrera M491 Turbo-Look Coupe, Silver/Black, 75,567 miles – SOLD

1985 Porsche 911 Carrera M491 Turbo-Look Coupe, Silver/Black, 75,567 miles – SOLD

We’ve owned and sold numerous m491-optioned factory Turbo-Look 911′s, and this rare Carrera widebody is as nice as any on the market, finished in what many believe to be the best, most iconic color combination for a Porsche – Metallic silver w/ black interior.

A positively stunning 2-owner car, with the most recent caretaker having owned it for over 20 years – in the southeast – this beautiful 1985 Porsche 911 m491 Turbo-Look coupe shows and drives as if it has half of its 75k miles, and wears most of its original paint (no accidents, but the previous owner had the hood re-painted years ago and we had the driver’s front fender and door re-sprayed to correct clearcoat damage; color match is absolutely perfect, but a paint gauge will confirm this work). We lowered the car to the proper European ride height, but other than that, European H-4 headlights, and replacement Audiobahn speakers in the doors, this heavily-serviced m491 coupe is original.

In addition to the $10k+ m491 Turbo-Look/SuperSport option (1 of 391 built for the U.S. market in 1985, 213 of which were coupes), this particular 911′s option list includes a black headliner and dual 8-way power seats. The headliner is flawless, the seats, dash and carpet excellent, and the floormats new (Lloyd’s). No cracks, warps, rips or tears anywhere. Like most 911′s of this era, the heat will melt your eyes out, while A/C will not allow you to see your breath on a warm day. The original Blaupunkt Monterey works, as does everything else.

When we acquired the car a few months it was a nice, original piece that had clearly fallen from the top of its owner’s playlist; it had some “sitting disease,” every symptom and effect of which we had completely cured by CS Motorsports (262-256-0678) during a recent, ultra-extensive service less than 100 miles ago that included: major engine tune up w/ new plugs and wires, new oxygen sensor, new distributor cap and rotor; valve adjustment w/ new valve cover gaskets; new drive belts; replacement of both camshaft oil lines and the “s-tube”; new left CV joint and outer CV boot; new shift rod seal; new engine sound insulation mat; new right foglight; new driver’s door check; all new light bulbs inside and out; new fuel filter and air filter; all new fluids – brake, trans, engine. CS also lowered and aligned this m491 coupe to Euro-spec and installed new Toyo T1-S tires (205/55/16 and 245/45/16) on the near-perfect original Fuchs.

Obviously this 1985 Porsche 911 m491 Turbo-Look coupe is more than a quarter-century old and has traveled 75k miles in its life, so the expected chips and nicks are present, if minor, and thanks to the color, nearly imperceptible. This m491 911 looks, runs and drives wonderfully, with no leaks and great compression – 150+ on all cylinders – though for the record, it does release a single puff of smoke on start-up if it’s sat for more than a week or so.

Certificate of Authenticity, service records/receipts, toll roll, jack, original spare and compressor, and cover are present and included with this fully-serviced, turn-key, silver/black m491 Turbo-Look Carrera coupe that needs nothing but a new home.
