Possibly the ultimate version of the 3.2 Carrera was the Option M491-Turbo-look or Supersport as it later became known in the UK. Initially, Option 'M491' was not just a sop to the excesses of the 1980s, with flared arches evoking the appearance of some dramatic Porsche models from the past, but was a popular option offering the 'macho' good looks of the Turbo without the mechanical complexities and were fitted with the more user-friendly G50 Getrag gearbox. However, it was not cheap adding over 10,000 to the cost of a standard variant,possibly explaining the relatively small build numbers. The SSE included a limited slip differential, the stiffer suspension and superior braking system from the 930 Turbo, a wrap-around deep chin-spoiler, the famous tea-tray rear spoiler, and wider Fuchs alloy wheels. The rarity of Supersport models is undeniable, especially in right-hand drive, but official figures are hard to come by. A respected source quotes that just 651 C16 (UK-supplied) M491 cars (including all Coups, Targas and Cabriolets) were manufactured between 1984 and 1989. The sparkling Porsche presented here has to be seen to be believed. It is a privilege to be able to offer for sale a car of this standard - it is simply one of the most well-preserved cars we have ever seen. It's an original C16, right-hand drive, 1988 Porsche 911 Sportsport (SSE) 3.2 Carrera Targa, which has remarkably accrued just 20,000 genuine and verifiable miles. It's believed to be one of just 33 C16 RHD Targas produced in 1988 and possibly the only one in Grand Prix White paintwork with a corresponding white leather interior, including the option of the desirable 'Sport' seats. The car's condition is commensurate with its very low mileage and meticulous upkeep over almost 30 years. The mileage is supported by the fully stamped service book and an impressive history file including many MOT certificates and a wealth of invoices. The car has been enjoyed and has not been offered for sale in almost 10 years. During his tenure, our fastidious vendor has kept and maintained the 911 to an exacting standard, entrusting it to his local Porsche Centre for regular servicing, with the technicians there regularly pointing out that they have never seen a better example! Indeed, the car is so good, it won a Porsche Club GB Concours d'Elegance event without even trying, merely being parked in the car-park as on attending the event as a spectator, returning to his car to find a trophy ador
