Lot 211 - 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo Coupé
|Odometer reading||79,718 miles|
|Estimate||£12,000 - £15,000|
|Result||Sold - £12,320|
The Porsche 944 was built from 1982 to 1991 and was built on the same platform as the 924. It was intended to last into the 1990's but major revisions planned for a 944 S3 model were eventually rolled into the 968 instead which replaced the 944. The 944 was a successful model and was available as both a coupé and cabriolet in naturally aspirated and turbocharged forms. In mid-1985, the Porsche 944 underwent significant changes. The post-1985 cars, turbos, and S variants are considered more desirable than the earlier cars, having improved interiors, suspensions and engines.
This Porsche 944 is in splendid condition throughout and is a credit to the vendor. Our inspection showed no areas for concern; however, we are advised the car will have a service prior to the auction, work which is scheduled to be carried out by Porsche in Reading. Finished in white with black half leather trim, this Turbo coupé is supplied with a V5 registration document and an MoT test certificate valid until 22nd September 2016 and a history file. Having been identified as a Porsche that offers great value for money and despite the fact that 944 prices have increased of late, this Turbo coupé is very realistically estimated given the condition and service history.
