Since the 930 Turbo had been discontinued in the US since 1980, orsche sought to develop a car that had all of the suspension and cosmetic goodies from the Turbo but with the already regulated engine. The M491 option code, enoting the “Turbo-Look” option costing around $12,000, ncluded the following Turbo options: whale tail, hin spoiler, idened fenders, uspension, 2” brakes and widened wheels.
