1987 Porsche 944

Targa Roof


The model history can be split in to two distinct periods: 1982 to 1989 (S1 cars with 2.5 & 2.7 litre engines) and 1989 to 1991 (S2 cars with 3.0 litre engines).

In mid-1985, the 944 underwent its first significant changes, including a new dash and door panels, embedded radio antenna, upgraded alternator, increased oil sump capacity, new front & rear cast alloy control and semi-trailing arms, larger fuel tank, optional heated and powered seats, Porsche HiFi sound system, and revisions in the mounting of the transaxle to reduce noise and vibration. The ‘cookie cutter’ style wheels used in the early 944s were upgraded to new ‘phone dial’ style wheels.

For the 1987 model year, the 944 Motronic DME (digital engine control unit) was updated, a newly incorporated anti-lock braking system became standard as did air-bags.

The car presented here is a 1987 944 2.5-litre, with a desirable detachable sunroof. The sheer state of preservation of this car is remarkable. This is not a restored car, just one that has been used and maintained to the highest standards with a good service history.

The 1987 S1 is the 944 in its purest and most unspoilt form. The 944, the 968 and even the 928 are seeing their values rise in the wake of the ‘911 explosion’ and the smooth and nimble 944 is now happily being recognised as a very desirable classic car.

La voiture présentée ici est une 944  2.5 litres de 1987 dans un excellent état d’origine. L’état de conservation de ce véhicule est remarquable. Ce n’est pas une voiture qui a été restaurée mais juste une voiture qui a été utilisée et entretenue avec des services de haute qualité. Elle est equipee d’un toit detachable qui se range dans une housse special dans le coffre.

En 1987 la S1 est la 944 dans sa forme la plus pure. La 944, la 968 et même la 928 ont vu leur valeur exploser avec l’arrivée de la 911 et la douce  et agile 944 est maintenant reconnue  comme une voiture classique très désirable.
