NOTES: The easiest way to verify a real M491 (besides turbo fenders) is to look at the rear brake calipers. If they are mounted toward the rear of the car and have "PORSCHE" lettering on them, they are the 930 brakes that come on the M491. the front brakes have the same lettering as well, and there will be cross-drilled brake rotors front and rear present as well.
It's essentially a 930 car with a non-turbo motor. Porsche made very few of these special examples presumably for marketing reasons for their customers who wanted the look of a 930 Turbo but not the expense of the turbo engine, hence known as the "Turbo Look" cars.
Under the hood, there was originally a sticker near the latch on the underside of the lid that list the VIN, paint and trim codes and the option codes. Look for "491" that is your verification. There will not be an "M" btw. This is the real deal.
Today, with 911 values skyrocketing, and this M491 factory widebody turbo-look Porsche representsa verysmart investment that still delivers thrilling performance that made the 911 an icon.The factory didn't build many widebody 911s, mostly because it was astronomically expensive even in Porsche terms. However, if you're going to own an '80s Carrera, you may as well get the full setup, which gives you the look of the legendary Turbo with a bit more user-friendly nature. Thisred coupe looks great blasting down the highway at supra-legal speeds!
