- Low mileage example
- Stunning condition
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 1990s 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.
First registered on the 1st May 1986, this 944 Turbo is offered in possibly the best colour combination of black bodywork with a black interior. The immaculate condition of this car is a tribute to the cars fastidious, enthusiast owner. The file for this Porsche contains an impressive MoT test history that confirms the cars particularly low mileage. Examples of this quality are hard to find. The Turbo is the most collectible of the 944 family, giving vivid acceleration and surprising economy with ample luggage space, unlike some coupés, and useful rear seats for a young family. Offered with a V5c registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate this 944 certainly deserves consideration by any potential buyer.
