1989 Porsche 911 Targa M491

I recently acquired this 1989 Porsche 911 Carrera Targa 'M491' option from a fellow PCA member. I am considering selling the car only to purchase a newly available limited edition 997.2 Turbo S. This is #2 of 15"Turbo Look" examples built for the '89 model year, and only 1 of 6 with CA Emissions. It is the only one in this color on the register. The M491 package featured theTurbo's widened body, larger brakes, and wheels while retaining the Carrera'snaturally-aspirated 3.2 liter flat six-cylinder engine, G50 5-speed manual transmission, and suspension. This particular car is a number-matching example withonly 43,300 miles thatwas originally in CA and spent the last 5 years in Arizona. Verified with a Porsche CoA, factory books, tools, spare, jack, and accessories, a cleanCarfax report, and a clean title.

Optional equipment included California emissions, Shorter Gear Shifter, Blaupunkt 'Reno' radio, central locking system, 4-way power seats, cruise control.

The car has had 1 windows out repaint in its factory 'Silver Salmon Metallic L81K' in 2013, and shows excellently. At this time rubber seals were replaced. Matching identification tags are adhered to the door jambs, underside of the hood including the original options sticker.

The 'Mahogany' partial leather (code SY) interior is believed to remain original. There are no rips or tears in the seats. The seat bolsters show some wear consistent with age. The original Blaupunkt Reno radio has been replaced with a single CD player consistent with the period of the car.

Thenaturally-aspirated 3.2 liter flat six-cylinder engine and G50 5-speed manual transmission are numbers-matching according to the Porsche CoA and remain mechanically stock.

This M491 is complemented by its original manuals and booklets in a vinyl sleeve, 2 keys, and recent servicing receipts. The car has recently had 4 new Michelin tires, and oil return tubes replaced.

The Porsche CoA confirms original specification, colors, and drivetrain. Note"Turbo Look" under Optional Equipment.

The Carfax report is accident-free andconfirms the mileage as original.
