Lot 271 - 1989 Porsche 944 Lux
|Odometer reading||104,285 miles|
|Result||Sold - £6,160|
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 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.
Originally registered on 17th April 1986, this Porsche 944 is a low ownership vehicle with just two former keepers; the current vendor has owned C812 CNG since 1st May 1993. Presenting well in Arctic White and with the original service books, we are advised this 944, with automatic transmission, drives with no known faults. At one stage they were a familiar sight on UK roads however, it is fair to say that relatively few good examples still exist. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate, this Porsche 944 Lux is offered for sale without reserve.
