Porsche revived the Carrera name - previously used for the competition orientated versions of the preceding 356 - for its luxuriously equipped, top-of-the-range 911 in 1973, applying the evocative title to all 911 models, co-incidentally with the introduction of the 3.2-litre engine, from 1984. Not merely enlarged, the new engine was also extensively revised and produced 231bhp, 27 horsepower up on its predecessor. The 911 Carrera's top speed was now 152mph, with 100mph reachable in a breathtaking 13.6 seconds. Known as the 'Type 930', this new Carrera exemplified the original 911 concept in its final form, the subsequent Carrera 2/Carrera 4 models being almost entirely different.
Recognising that many customers admired the Turbo model's aggressive 'wide body' appearance but had no need of its enhanced performance, Porsche offered the 'Sport Equipment' package. Also known as the 'Turbo-Look', it not only consisted of the Turbo's distinctive extended wheelarches and front/rear spoilers but also its upgraded brakes, suspension, wheels and tyres. This option had been introduced in response to the many independent specialists offering such conversions, and also enabled Porsche to offer a Turbo look-alike in the United States market where emissions legislation had forced the Turbo's (temporary) withdrawal from sale. In Porsche nomenclature the Sport Equipment package was known as option 'M491', though factory records do not provide a breakdown of how many cars were completed with it. In September 1986 the UK-market designation of these wide-body cars changed to 'Carrera Super Sport'.
We are advised that only 16 right-hand drive Carrera Super Sport Cabriolets were sold in the UK, making this example a rare beast indeed. Special original specification features include the following:
Recoil bumpers
Blaupunkt Toronto radio/cassette
Sport seats with electric height adjustment
Power operated hood
High Fidelity Package (8 speaker system with amplifier)
Super Sport equipment
Deletion of model designation
Top-tinted windscreen
Luggage compartment trimmed in black velour carpet
This comes with its original service booklet listing three owners and stamped on 13 occasions by Porsche main dealers and other specialists, the last stamp being dated 15th October 2018 at 24,430 miles. Finished in silver with black interior, this rare 911 variant is offered with the aforementioned history, factory build details, MoT to January 2019, and a V5C document.
