2008 turbo

I just saw a 2008 cabrio just like mine but the salesman said it was a factory turbo. I thought that there was no factory turbo 451 in 2008. The salesman swore it was factory but it was a Passion Cabrio with the rear valence cut to accommodate the center exhaust and it has a turbo but I think it's an aftermarket set-up. They first said they wanted 12995 for it (26xxxmiles) and I told him he was nuts. When I got home I got a call and he said he made a mistake and it was $5995. Was there a 2008 made with a factory turbo and shipped to the U.S. or not?

There are no factory US spec 451 turbos of any year. The car you saw was most likely an after market conversion.

That's what I thought, the one salesman admitted he didn't know and another gave me the impression that he knew better than anybody else.
