Border Reivers are thrilled to be able to offer yet another genuine & rare Porsche to the market. This 1986, matching numbers Porsche is the rare Supersport. It comes with a full service history.
The 3.2 Carrera is regarded as the definitive development of the original 911 that first appeared in 1963 before the evolution to Type 964. These ‘last of cars’ were the most tractable and usable of Butzi Porsche’s original design.
The all-alloy, flat-6, fuel injected engine received a final displacement of 3.2 litres developing a torquey 231hp – enough to thrust the slippery new Carrera from 0-100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds.
One of the most collectable 911’s on the market is the 3.2 Carrera Supersport or factory optioned Widebody, produced from 1984 through to 1989.
Known as option code M491, the costly Supersport package wasn’t just cosmetic offering aggressive wider wheel arches, rear spoiler and wider Fuchs wheels, it also included cross-drilled discs with four-piston aluminium callipers and suspension taken directly from the 911 Turbo.
The option to upgrade to M491 didn’t come cheap with prices ranging from £10,000-£15,000 depending on the year of manufacture, which kept production numbers low making genuine M491 equipped models incredibly hard to find and very collectable today.
