Description

Announced in 1981, the 944 was the third of Porsche’s new family of front-engined sports cars. Beneath the bodywork (which was 50mm wider than the 924 predecessor) was a 2.5-litre, overhead-camshaft ‘four’ – in effect half of the 928’s V8 bored out – fitted with twin balancer shafts to counter the vibration often encountered in such units. The rear transaxle (a five-speed affair this time) was retained, while the 924-type running gear was suitably up-rated to cope with the 944’s superior performance. Subsequent developments included a Turbo, 16-valve 944S/S2 and a cabriolet. Porsche has not made anything like it since and today this appreciating modern classic enjoys an enthusiastic following worldwide.

 

Rolling off the production line in October 1988, finished in a very fashionable shade of Grand Prix White, this astonishingly well preserved example is showing just 61,000 miles recorded from new. The panels are new and rust-free, and the paint is gleaming following a repaint in its original shade. The underside of the car has been cleaned and coated in wax oil. The interior is in excellent order as befits a 944 of this mileage and careful storage,

 

Offered with thick history file to support its history, this is a very nice example of a modern and highly usable GT car.
