Vehicle Description

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 since completion.

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
- Gaskets
- Clutch
- 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 keys.
