A 'C16' UK-supplied right-hand drive Targa Super Sport and only 13,874 miles from new
Details Specification
  • UK supplied 'C16', right-hand drive 911 Targa SuperSport (M491) with just 13,874 miles 
  • Presented in outstanding condition with gleaming black paintwork and black piped red sports leather seats
  • Specified with options including a Blaupunkt cassette-radio, electric sports seats and top-tint screen
  • Detailed history file including Porsche book pack with original service book, a wealth of invoices, COA and old MOTs
  • Carefully sourced for a significant collection, perhaps the best remaining UK SuperSport and a very rare opportunity

Initially registered on the 1st January 1989 and supplied new by official Porsche Centre JCT600, Leeds, this 911 Carrera Targa had been specified in black paint with black electric leather sports. Options also included M491 Turbo-Look wide body( also known as SuperSport Equipment), recoil bumpers, Blaupunkt Toronto radio cassette, electric leather sports seats, rear wiper, 8-speaker system with amp, and top tint screen, an impressive list. The M491 SSE (Turbo-look) option offered wider wheel arches, rear spoiler and wider Fuchs wheels in addition to cross-drilled discs with four-piston aluminium callipers and suspension taken directly from the 930 Turbo.

Today, this rare 911 variant still presents in showroom condition, having covered a mere 13,874 miles and it's evident that this example has been correctly maintained and stored over the years. Accompanied by a detailed history folder including its Porsche book pack containing the original service book with regular entries from main agents and marque specialists. The file also contains a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a wealth of invoices and old MOT Certificates all supporting the very low mileage.

The SSE option was an expensive box to tick back in the 80s and, as a result, few cars left the factory with this upgrade so consequently this variant is highly sought after. Offered here is an example that should, and probably will become part of another collection, preserved and maintained for future generations to see and admire.   

This car has formed part of a significant collection for the past few years. In preparation for the sale, the engine will be flushed, filled with fresh oil and a new filter fitted, the fuel tank drained, flushed and filled with 20 litres of fuel, fitted with a new battery and issued with a fresh MOT Certificate. A safety check will also be carried out along with an inspection report included in the history file.
