Personally, I love it. Looks of the 930 without the lag. To think I could've bought one, not even that long ag,o from Truspeed in the 15k range... sigh.

As an aside, if it has the wide body look, does that necessarily mean it's an M491?
I know of one such late 80's car, and am considering the purchase. Does the VIN tell you, or do you have to spot the rear brakes, POA etc?

FYI, my '84 (first year factory turbo-look) has option M-491 on the under hood sticker (also the turbo brakes, etc.)

I won't disclose the location or the asking price, but let's just say if you think a M491 with 35k miles can be purchased for less than $40k....you're never going to own one!

I agree 100%. Minimun value is 40k. I would say $45k is the price if it is in as good a shape as it looks in the picture.
