1984 Porsche 911 Carrera M491 RSR Backdate
Offered for sale by K2 Motorcars is this stunning 1984 Porsche 911
Carerra M491 RSR Backdate finished in the classic Guards Red over a
Black Partial Leather interior.
Starting life as a solid 1984 Carerra M491, the builder Kealoha
Autosport purchased the car from a friend who had three M491 models
at the time. Kealoha Autosport took possession of this Carrera when
it showed just 88k miles, at which point they began transforming it
into the incredible backdate you see today. Their goal was to
complete a high-quality backdate without disrupting the soul of the
original car. It now features high-quality upgrades, raw air-cooled
performance, and an all-around world-class build quality.
In 2017, this backdate received a professional glass-out respray in
its original color of Guards Red. The vehicle's paint is in
exceptional condition and fits the build extremely well. Suntek
clear paint protection film has been installed on the bumpers,
lower doors, rocker panels, front fenders, and rear quarter panels
Initial bodywork on this backdate included the deletion of the
factory sunroof, a long hood conversion, installation of
light-weight fiberglass bumpers, and a polished rear-hatch grille.
All-new rubber seals/felts were installed along with a single
drivers-side mirror, front and rear signal lenses, and silver
Porsche decals along the side rockers. It's safe to say that this
is one eye-catching 911! This car comes with both clear and
yellow-tinted headlights. Currently installed are Braid 15
Fuchs-style wheels that wear Michelin TB15 tires.
The spectacular yet minimalist black partial leather interior is in
excellent cosmetic condition. Upon opening the door, you will find
bespoke features such as leather sport seats and RS-style perlon
carpeting with custom sound deadening material installed by
Autobahn Interiors. This build was also tastefully finished with
leather basketweave door panels, leather door-pulls, a 4-spoke
OEM-style leather steering wheel, wooden shift knob, custom gauges
with silver centers, and an air-conditioning system. The A/C system
was recently serviced, and a new receiver/drier was installed. Both
the stock shift and custom wooden shift knob will be included in
the sale as well.
Power comes from a 3.2L flat-six engine that is paired to a
completely rebuilt 5-speed manual transmission. Boosting both the
sound and performance of this backdate is a Steve Wong chip, K
amp;N air intake, Fabspeed RSR exhaust, Elephant Racing, and Tarett
Engineering sway bars, bushings, and adjustable spring plates with
quick-change torsion bars. The car has been fitted with new spark
plugs, gaskets, and oil return tubes. A valve adjustment was also
performed, as well as a leakdown test that showed under a 7% loss
across all six cylinders. The 5-speed manual transaxle was rebuilt
roughly 10k miles ago and recently received a new clutch, pressure
plate, throwout bearing, and Wavetrac limited-slip differential.
The car is in excellent running condition!
The following items were replaced during the time of build with
only approximately 2k miles driven since:
- Spark plugs
- Oil return tubes
- Pressure plate
- Throwout bearing
- Brake rotors and pads
The sale will include service records, receipts from the whole
build, books, documentation, a certificate of authenticity, and
