GR Auto Gallery is proud to offer another fascinating air cooled Porsche 911. The one owner, 1985 Porsche 911 factory “Turbo Look” offered here was ordered via Porsche's “Sonderwunsche” or Special wishes program. The “Sonderwunsche” allowed Porsches clients, for a price, to personalize their cars from the factory with one off options and modifications to their desire. The extensive documentation indicates that this M491 Wide Body Carrera was special ordered by importer, Prototype Imports, Inc., New York, NY for a Hollywood writer, actor, producer, executive client of theirs. The car was ordered in black over champagne / black leather interior. It came equipped with the Turbo Look Package, Sport Seats with Electric Height Adjustment, Higher Amperage Battery, Limited Slip Differential, Passenger Side Mirror, Blaupunkt Radio 'Koln', Cruise Control, Air Conditioner, Green Graduated Tint Windshield, Electric Sunroof, Equipment for Germany, polished Fuchs and Dunlop Tires. Also, courtesy of Porsches “Sonderwunche” Program, the car was factory modified with Rear Wheel Vents and Side Skirts on the Rocker Panels.

According to the importation documentation, the deal was facilitated by Hans Schroder Porsche of Durin, W. Germany as original selling dealer and the importation and final sale of the car was handled by prototype imports of New York. The Porsche was checked in at Hans Schroeder Porsche 2-27-85, then transported to port in Bemerhanven, W. Germany. The vehicle was loaded on the vessel “Spica” March 17th, 1985, and shipped via the Panama Canal to the Port of Los Angeles on which it arrived April 11, 1985. Richard Garcia CHB was the customs broker from where the car was delivered to the owners agent on May 2 1985. On June 19, 1985, the vehicle was issued its original and still valid California Pink Slip. The vehicle remained in the hands of the original owner, where it received consistent care and maintenance until our recent acquisition. Today, the car remains in excellent condition, and aside from some tasteful upgrades which includes an upgraded stereo, A.I.R. side view mirrors, and a lower, more aggressive stance, still remains in the same factory configuration.

The Mid 80's Porsche Wide Body cars are arguably the best and most aggressive body styled 911 to this day. With surging demand for vintage Porsche's, and one of the few marquee's gaining value, well sorted cars with excellent owner history such as this will always have a demand. The M491 non-turbo cars have gained much respect among collectors and enthusiasts alike as they are a much more balanced than is turbo charged cousin, and possess the pure drivability that Porsche has long been famous for. This one off, special order Carrera possesses excellent owner history and provenance. Documentation includes COA, Original and valid pink slip, original order, correspondence between all parties encompassing: vehicle order, order changes, original dealer invoice, importation, transportation, and delivery. The car was recently converted from kilometers to miles for us by Palo Alto Speedometer and documentation verifies the mileage as accurate. The car still has its original owners book in German, original factory stickers, and extensive service history. Call or email for details.
