This is two-owner car, not three owners as previously stated. The first owner was a company, before it was transferred to private ownership - to the chap that worked at said company.

  • A C16 UK-supplied right-hand drive Supersport Cabriolet

  • Finished in black with a cream leather interior piped black, black hood and tonneau cover

  • Recent recipient of a service totalling £5,500 at a marque specialist to include; a new clutch, exhaust, fuel tank and fuel pump

  • Supplied with a UK V5c, tools and service book, this two-owner car is now showing just 50,435 miles


Introduced in 1984 and possibly the ultimate version of the 3.2 Carrera was the ‘Option M491-Turbo-look’ or ‘Supersport’ as it later became known in the UK. Initially, Option M491 was only available on a Coupé and had to be ordered through the 'Special Wishes' program, but was later extended to include the Targa and Cabriolet in 1985, before becoming an official model available from dealers in 1986.

'M491' was not just a sop to the excesses of the 1980s, with flared arches evoking the appearance of some dramatic Porsche models from the past, but was a popular option offering the 'macho' good looks of the Turbo without the mechanical complexities. However, it was not cheap adding over £10,000 to the cost of a standard variant by the end of the model’s life in 1989, possibly explaining the relatively small build numbers. The Supersport spec also included a limited-slip differential, the stiffer suspension and superior braking system from the 930 Turbo, a wrap-around deep chin-spoiler, the famous ‘tea-tray’ rear spoiler, and wider Fuchs alloy wheels. The rarity of Supersport models is undeniable, especially in right-hand drive, but official figures are hard to come by as technically the 'Turbo-look' option was, just that, an option and not a type so records do not exist but a respected source quotes that just 651 M491 cars (including all Coupés, Targas and Cabriolets) were manufactured between 1984 and 1989 with only 75 of those being in C16 UK-spec and half of those were Cabriolets.  According to the 'Turbo-look Register', there are currently 27 UK-owned Supersport Cabs of which only five are finished in black.

Offered here is a beautiful UK-supplied, right-hand drive (C16) Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Supersport registered to it first owner on 1 st March 1986. Finished in black with a cream leather interior piped in black, the hood is black mohair with a matching tonneau cover. Featuring the 4-speed manual gearbox, the car rides on black Fuchs alloys wheels, has electric door mirrors, power steering and air-conditioning.

Having covered just 50,435 miles this example has been enjoyed by just three keepers and, as a result, appears in superb order. It’s clear that each owner has cosseted the car, and most recently it has been fitted with a new fuel tank and pump, exhaust and clutch resulting in an invoice for £5,500 from a Porsche marque specialist.

Supplied with a UK V5c, its tools, invoices and original service book, low-owner examples like this rarely come to market especially one of only reportedly five in black – viewing is highly recommended.


A three-owner example of a rare model in stunning order
