Lot 256 - 1990 Porsche 944 Turbo
|Odometer reading||50,980 miles|
|Result||Sold - £30,240|
- Comprehensive specification
- Long term collector ownership
- A pristine and unmarked example
With a not inconsiderable 250bhp available to your right foot, this fabulous example certainly has the bite to back up its good looks. The condition is also excellent, a point not wasted on the vendor or indeed the one before him. It was the personal property of a notable Porsche enthusiast and owner of independent specialist, Porsche Torque in Middlesex for over 15 years. Supplied originally by Lancaster Cambridge and presented in classic Guards Red with a white linen leather interior, it has formed a part of two private Porsche collections over the years, down to two important factors, its low mileage and its superb condition and history. It also benefits from just four previous owners over the last 32 years from new.
It came with 16” Turbo-style alloy wheels, limited slip differential, ABS and power steering. Internal comforts included electric sports seats, air conditioning and electric windows and mirrors. A rare and expensive addition also fitted was a completely removable sunroof. This could be stowed in the boot when not in use and allowed the occupants maximum sun and fresh air without the noise often associated with a convertible. New sparkplugs and cambelts were fitted at the last service some 800 miles ago and an MoT test certificate will accompany the car valid until March next year. Unusually available, a pristine and unmolested example with unmarked coachwork and an interior commensurate with careful ownership and very light use.
Four previous owners from new.
