Description

For the 1985 model year, Porsche introduced the 944 Turbo, known internally as the 951. This had a turbocharged and intercooled version of the standard car’s engine that produced 217 bhp at 6000 rpm. The turbo was the first car using a ceramic port liner to retain exhaust gas temperature and new forged pistons, and was also the first vehicle to produce identical power output with or without a catalytic converter. The Turbo also featured several other changes, such as improved aerodynamics, notably an integrated front bumper. This featured a strengthened gearbox with a different final drive ratio, standard external oil coolers for both the engine and transmission, standard 16 inch wheels, and a slightly stiffer suspension to handle the extra weight. The Turbo’s front and rear brakes were borrowed from the Porsche 911, with Brembo 4-piston fixed calipers and 12-inch discs as ABS also came standard.

This incredible example has benefitted from a huge amount of refurbishment works to the tune of c. £40,000, to produce one of the finest examples of this model that we have seen. The refurbishment included a full rebuild of the engine and running gear, a complete retrim and a bare metal repaint in Guards Red. Presented in as near to new condition as possible, and with receipts for all works completed, this is a truly exceptional example of one of the best driving classic Porsches you can buy.
