I saw a M491 car posted either here or on eBay with that badging and I don't think it's correct either. Should be Carrera.

That would be sacriligeous, misleading and downright offensive. Or perhaps someone had the bright idea of dropping a NA engine into a turbo chassis.

"That would be sacrilegious, misleading and downright offensive."

I debated whether to add the badge to my true turbo or not.

When I take people for a ride, I don't tell them its a turbo unless they ask. After the first pull, I get the "wholly crap!" comment and I'm comfortable they know. Then I introduce them to 993tt brakes...

Priceless.

I put the "Turbo" badge on my car. It is not an original turbo but it is a wide body and does have a turbo motor. Is that ok?

Factory M491 cars are badged "Carrera".

I've badged mine "911GTS" which gets a lot of questions as well. Nothing stock about it so figure the badge can be about whatever I want. "Is it a turbo?" "Let's go for a ride and you tell me." Hehe.

Is this the car? Turbo Look FS

$39995? Don't think so, IMO.

yes. It looks like a really nice car to me, i think the owner/seller is an honorable and honest person. the "turbo" badge jumped out at me.
didn't feel right. i am not a fanatic purist. i'm installing swing-out rear
windows on my '78 930 as we speak. ripped out all air cond. stuff. i expect
both myself and the engine will do well, southern california, this summer.
