Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Supersport (M491) cabriolet 1988

Porsche 911 Carrera 3.2 Supersport (M491) cabriolet 1988


73,820 miles

A classic 80’s icon, this 911 is 1 of only 39 UK supplied C16 RHD Supersport cabriolets.

Supplied to its first owner by Lancaster Porsche during January 1988. It’s finished in the classic eighties Porsche colour of Guards Red but the interior is unusual having been selected from the factory ‘Special Wishes Program’. It looks fabulous in Linen leather and features a black leather dash top, leather knee rolls, leather to the door panels, armrests and rear seats, full leather front seats piped in red with eight-way electric adjustment all topped off with a Special Wishes gold-embellished gear lever knob. To differentiate the car a little further it was dealer-fitted with the front air dam and side-skirts from the 930 SE.

The Supersport models cost an additional £10,000 to what was already a very expensive car, this could explain why so few were ever made? With the wide arches and big spoiler plus the suspension and brakes from the Turbo, the Supersport also benefited from the manual G50 gearbox, Fuchs alloy wheels, electric door mirrors, power steering, air conditioning, CD Player, central locking, electric windows, 8-way electrically adjustable seats (including lumbar support) and an alarm.

This 911 has a comprehensive maintenance record supporting the indicated mileage of 73,820 which includes a documented engine refresh carried out by Porsche Cambridge in 2010 at 67,542 miles. The car has covered a little over 6,000 miles in the last nine years and has recently been serviced (at 73,714, less than 100 miles ago) and the MOT is valid until August 2020. It will be accompanied by its original tool roll, aluminium spare wheel (correct for a Supersport), a second key, the Certificate of Authenticity, handbooks, service book and the history file.

We would class this Supersport as a Grade 4; a great example without any issues for the near future. Ready to use with confidence, drive and enjoy…..

As one of only thirty-nine, UK Supersport Cabriolets are rare, however, with its SE aerodynamics and the bespoke Special Wishes interior, this lovely 911 is undoubtedly unique.
