I cannot stress how much I like the M491 911’s. You get all of the looks and stopping power of the turbo cars with exponentially fewer headaches. What makes this example so special is the hue, Metallic Rose is not only a rare color it is absolutely stunning in person if it has been well cared for.
Typically, people that buy a vehicle based on color make me nuts. But, for me, this hue defies my normally ambivalent feelings regarding color.
From the seller –
“Beautiful Option color Metallic Rose, Sport Seats. Mechanically excellent, perfect interior. Receipts back to 2002. One of 431 made in 1984, real collector value for the future. The best 3.2 engine with all of the Turbo body, suspension and brakes! “
Short but sweet. In the few pictures provided this Carrera looks to be in good enough shape. I wonder where the center caps are and why the RS door panels but these are nits. These cars are getting on in years and have passed through quite a few owners. Some of which may not me so concerned about keeping the stock nature of their car(s).
What I can tell you is the seller is a very straightforward dealer who has been doing this for close to 40 years. You don’t sell Posrche’s for that long if you are not doing so with integrity. If you ever find yourself in Oregon I encourage you to take the drive, it will be worth your time.
I have seen these M491 cars range in price from $25k-$32.5k, since there is no mention of mileage I would gather this car has somewhere in the 120-150k range. If my assumptions are correct the asking price of $26k seems reasonable, a final tally of $25k seems even better. Either way it is a beautiful car sure to make the next owner very happy.
