The 944 was to feature new styling based upon the Le Mans styled Porsche 924 Carrera GT, along with a brand new Porsche designed and developed 2.5 litre, four cylinder engine. Sales of the 168bhp coupé went through the roof with a massive 26,800 Porsche 944s being produced by the end of 1982. To put this figure into context, the entire Porsche company made just 28,000 cars in 1981.
The new Porsche owners were attracted by the stunning looks and presence of the model and in 1985, the ‘Lux’ coupé arrived with a completely new interior design dominated by a smooth, sweeping oval dashboard. This severed all ties with the 924 and completed the move upmarket for the 944. The dash provided improved ergonomics for the instruments with all useful components and buttons placed close at hand.
This impressive looking Porsche 944 was first registered in August 1987 and has had one owner from new. Accompanying the car is a comprehensive service book, this shows an impressive seven main dealer and five independent dealer service stamps, it also shows a cambelt change at 59,137 miles and again at 63,126. A recent VOSA check indicates a very limited use of the car in the last ten years. This car is presented with a V5C registration certificate and an MoT test certificate that is valid until the end of August 2018.
