M491 History
In 1984 Porsche began offering the M491 option on the 3.2 Carrera. It remained an option on the 3.2 from 84 to 89. The 87­89 models also have the G50 transmission just like the standard Carreras. Finally, direct from the Porsche factory, you could order your normally aspirated Carrera with just about everything the Turbo had, minus the actual turbo of course. This wasn't just a Carrera with stretched fenders. It included:

• wide­body
• turbo whale tail
• turbo wrap­around chin
• spoiler turbo suspension
• turbo brakes with 285 mm cross­drilled discs and four­piston aluminum calipers
• wheels and tires

A slight weight increase but a noticeable handling improvement over the standard Carrera
The M491 option didn't come cheap. This wasn't like deciding whether or not to splurge on the electric seats or the sport steering wheel. Prices for the M491 option ranged from $10K to $15K extra depending on the year. The high cost kept orders and production numbers low, making these genuine M491 equipped models very special, very rare and increasingly a good investment.
