1986 PORSCHE 911 CARRERA FACTORY - WIDE BODY M491- AUSTRALIAN DELIVERY
A rare offering and in exceptional condition with original books and service history.
Midnight blue with midnight blue leather, delivered new by the Sydney Porsche dealer of the time, John Newell Motors in Darlinghurst.
Powered by a 3.2 Litre air cooled 6 cylinder engine, it produces 149Kw and 251Nm of power and torque and delivers it via a 5 speed manual gearbox. Performance figures of 0-100kph in 6.7 secs and a top of 235kph were highly respectable in the 80's and certainly still very satisfying today. Just a beautiful driver's car.
The M491 option was essentially a 911 Turbo without the turbocharger. M491 features include the wider body, larger cross-drilled brake discs, wider front and rear wheels, factory lowered with stiffer springs and shock absorbers. It was a very expensive option in 1986. The result is a very pleasant coupe to drive with a great look. These are collectable as very few were sold new in Australia.
This example has had a recent bare metal repaint in the original colour. The engine top-end has been overhauled and leak-down results are at 4%. It is tight to drive.
