Anyone who knows Porsches will get why this car is so special.

While everyone loves the Porsche 911 Turbo, many don’t know that after 1979 there was no Turbo model sold in the United States for many years. That’s why this 1985 Porsche 911 Cabriolet Turbo Look is a little different, but it represented the best of what you could get from a dealer at the time. This timeless German vehicle is available for purchase through Gaudin Classic.

Since the 930 Turbo wasn’t an option to US consumers for the 1985 model year, the person who bought this car ordered a special option package officially called M491. Around the world, M491 was known as “Supersport” but here it was nicknamed “Turbo Look.” It’s easy to see why, considering M491 added the rear spoiler from the 930 Turbo, plus wide fender flares, wider Fuchs wheels, as well as the brakes and suspension from the Turbo. Put together, this package dials your 911 Carrera up a few notches, like you’re strutting down the street.

Not many people went for the Turbo Look option on their Porsche 911, with only 389 Cabriolets sporting the upgrades for the 1985 model year in this market. That makes it rare, desirable, and therefore collectible.

For its age this Porsche is in good condition. The black paint has been resprayed and is factory-correct, so you’re getting an authentic look. You’ll also note the tan interior has been well-preserved, showing the previous owner took great care with this car. Because Gaudin Classic does classic car restorations, it installed a new black leather dash, which really presents well.

Gaudin Classic also offers classic car maintenance, which this Turbo Look has benefitted from. Among the items addressed by technicians is valve adjustment, fluids, alignment, new tires, and spark plugs. This is a vehicle you can buy today and immediately begin to enjoy.

If you have questions about this Porsche or want to make an offer, contact Gaudin Classic.
