The Turbo-Look 911s were built in limited numbers as an upscale option to the standard Carrera. The M491 package entailed a Turbo body, brakes and wheels, fitted with a naturally aspirated Carrera engine and suspension. As one of just 171 M491 Carrera Cabriolets produced for North America, this exceptional example was completed on April 20, 1988 as special ordered by Mr. Delauro of Lafayette, CA, with California Emissions (1 of 93), Steering Wheel with Raised Hub, Blaupunkt 'Reno' radio, Limited Slip Differential, Turbo Look without Spoilers ($12,799 option) and HiFi Sound Sytem, wearing Guards Red (G1) paint over Black Leather (LT) upholstery. Additionally the car is fitted with a more desirable manual (non-electric) soft top.

Mr. Delauro took delivery of WP0EB0912JS171723 on May 30th 1988 through the Porsche Tourist Program in Stuttgart, before coming home to California. Records of the Original Bill of Sale, Window Sticker and all tourist delivery pamphlets and paperwork accompany the vehicle's original manuals in folio. The Carrera eventually changed hands over a decade later, seeing residency in Texas and Tennessee, before making its way back to California. As presented, this 911 Cabriolet remains complete numbers-matching, in stock configuration, including trim, upholstery, paint and accessories. A later radio has been fitted. Matching identification tags are still adhered to the doors, door jambs, undercarriage and underside of the hood and luggage compartment. The undercarriage is nicely detailed, and preserved with original Cosmoline coatings, paring well to the engine bay with authentic coatings and stickers.

The motor, transmission and electronics, operate as expected from such a pampered car. The 911 received a December 2017 multi-point inspection, including all-new 205/55R16 and 245/45R16 tires. The Carrera is complemented by all original Owner's Manuals and booklets in folio, tool kit, jack, date stamped spare tire, European emergency triangle and convertible boot in bag.
The collectability of 3.2 Carreras with G50 Transmissions continue to develop as more enthusiasts value the model's everyday drivability and nostalgia paired with modern amenities. Known as the “High-top Speedster”, this already rare wide-bodied example is made even more scare with the addition, or rather factory subtraction of both the front and rear Turbo spoilers. Now available for Worldwide purchase and delivery, we offer this exceptional 1988 Porsche 911 Carrera Cabriolet.
