Cool Low mileage Turbo Cab

If anyone is interested I found a low mileage Turbo Cab at an auto museum in Minnesota. Here are the stats.

1986 PORSCHE 930

CABRIOLET CONVERTIBLE

DELIVERED OCT. 1987 - GERMAN MOTOR SALES - CINCINNATI, OHIO



BUILT IN SPECIAL WISH PLANT
3.3 TURBOCHARGED ENGINE
930/36 - 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION (TURBO ONLY)
M491 - WIDE BODY OPTION
GARNET RED METALLIC PAINT (822)
CHAMPAGNE LEATHER AND CARPET INTERIOR
BURGUNDY CLOTH TOP
ONLY 6,700 ACTUAL MILES

I think they want 44,000 for the car.

It's sorta strange that there is no boost indicator on the tach.

I am thinking that this is not a original 930 cuz of the "M491" option - 930s are standard wide body. If someone asks for the VIN my bet it will be a 911 VIN code. Interesting enough, I saw a similar car offered for sale a while back ....
the story was that the original owner bought the WideBody Cab and then later wanted more power so they paid a porsche dealership to put a turbo motor in it (and the seller therefore called it a 'factory' 930). The car had no boost gauge and a 911 VIN.

Correct - the M491 optioned cars were 3.2 Carrera's with the factory turbo body & turbo brakes. I know! I have one!

This cars P.O must have had the 930 engine/g'box conversion done as an aftermarket transplant, like mic suggested.
