Equipment Original Blaupunkt Toronto SQR 45 Radio+auto-reverse cassette, Electric Sunroof, electrically operated door mirrors, heated rear screen +wiper, central locking, electrically adjustable seats, headlight wash, front/rear fog lights, intermittent wipers, lockable glove box, vanity mirrors in sun visors, alarm/immobilizer, cruise control.

Interior A high point of this particular 911.
Spectacular Can-Can Red leather sets a dramatic and stylish contrast against the Grand Prix White exterior and black internal details.
Both driver and passenger seats show no more than a slight age related patina with no cuts, scratches or heavy creasing. Folding Rears are as new.
The perforated head-lining, door cards, carpets and over-mats are unmarked.
Black leather dash has no splits, tares or sun damage, commonly, just a few slight abrasions above steering wheel due to its close proximity and, no doubt, the fashion in the 80s for some owners to wear more jewelry than is now acceptable!
All dials and displays are clear and bright.
Inside the front bonnet, all carpets are superb, and when removed, the area looks clean and dry with no evidence of any previous damage.
Factory correct Space-Saver wheel, with Model-Specific Made in Norway stamp, and dated 03/85, still has its original brown paper label attached, a clear indication of, not only never having been used on the road, but also the lack of any moisture in the compartment over many years
Full tool roll, air compressor plus dial tyre gauge are all present.
(350mm Semi dished, black suede steering wheel included, actually much nicer to use than original horizontal 4 spoke now fitted).

Exterior The iconic shape of the 1980s, 930 Turbo body, must be one of the most enduring automotive images of all time.
Paintwork looks solid and even. Front and rear bumpers have been removed and re-finish at some point in the past to sustain the quality of the overall appearance.
All rubber seals, bellows, over-riders, lenses and glass are in fine order, as are wiper arms, blades and door handles.

Wheels and Tyres Original Fuchs 16Alloys are all bright, in very good condition with no kerbing what so ever.
Body coloured centres, locking, light-weight wheel nuts and new, genuine Porsche, billet centre caps. (Originals also present)
Quality Toyo Proxes T1R matching tyres all round, with consistent wear patterns. Detailed readings taken and available if required. All above 5mm+
245/45ZR16 94W Rear
205/55ZR16 91W Front

Service and History - This example presents extremely well having been under the care of its last knowledgeable, enthusiast owner for 15 years.
During which he has lavished, not only considerable expenditure, to the tune of £20k, which has included major mechanical overhauls, but much of his own time and attention to a rigorous maintenance regime. His professional expertise in this field has obviously paid dividends, addressing most common issues prior to their occurrence.
Originally supplied by Howells Motors Ltd, Cardiff to Mr, Albert White of South Witham on 25th October 1985 this M491 has been maintained by both Main Dealer and renowned Porsche Specialists.
Mileage intervals: 1124/2358/5883/9662/17,527/22,837/39,451/45,965/46,915/57,265/64,573/69,671/78,240/86,092.

This rare and striking 911 Supersport performs and handles superbly.
Anyone fortunate enough to experience these glorious air-cooled 930 Porsches cannot fail to be impressed with the eager surety this particular example provides.
Hustling through the well sorted five speed 915 gearbox, dipping into the higher rev ranges, rewards the experienced driver like no other car can. Well worth mastering.
