M491 History
in 1984 Porsche 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, direct from the Porsche factory, you could order your normally aspirated Carrera with just about everything the Turbohad, minus 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, making these genuine M491 equipped models very special, very rare and increasingly a good investment.
