In 1980 due to US emission regulations the 930 was pulled from the North American market and it didn’t return until 1986. This left a huge hole for any driver in North America that wanted the aggressive looks and increased performance of the Turbo. The aftermarket tuners jumped on this and started turning the 3.2 Carreras into turbo-look cars. The quality of the body work ranged from frighteningly bad bondo jobs to conversions so good they were almost indistinguishable from factory produced 930s. But even with the good onesit was hard and very expensive to go deeper than wide fenders and spaced wheels and tires. The 930s had a very different suspension setup to take full advantage of the wide-body, igger brakes, igger wheels, tc. and to replicate this was a massive undertaking. But people did it to varying degrees of success.

Porsche woke up to the fact that they were losingmoney to the tuner market and in 1984 they began offering theM491option on the 3.2 Carrera. It remained an option on the 3.2 from 84 to 89. The 87-89 models also have the G50 transmission just like the standard Carreras. Finally, irect from the Porsche factory, ou could order your normally aspirated Carrera with just about everything the Turbohad, inus the actual turbo of course. This wasn’t just aCarrera with stretched fenders. It included:

  • The wide-body
  • The turbo whale tail
  • The turbo wrap-around chin spoiler
  • The turbo suspension
  • The turbo brakes with 285 mm cross-drilled discs and four-piston aluminumcalipers
  • The wheels and tires
  • A slight weight increase but a noticeable handling improvement over the standard Carrera
The M491 option didn’t comecheap. This wasn’t like deciding whether or not to splurge on the electric seats or the sport steering wheel. Prices for the M491 option ranged from $10K to$15K extra depending on the year. The high cost kept orders and production numbers low, aking these genuine M491 equipped models very special, ery rare and increasingly a good investment.
