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.
This manual Guards Red 944 was first registered on 1st January 1985 supplied by John Lamb Porsche in Chesterfield and is complemented by charcoal 944 trim with embossed Porsche logo. An incredibly low mileage example for the year and boasting just five owners from new we are informed that everything works as it should and is a fabulous drive. There is a good history file with a stamped service booklet in the book pack and this coupé has recently been treated to a cambelt change and full service as well as an MoT test certificate valid until November 2022 incidentally with no advisories. Owned and enjoyed by a Porsche club GB enthusiast this is a very nice example of an appreciating modern classic.
