1987 Porsche 944
Later oval-dash 2.5 example in uncommonly appealing order with useful recent works ready to be enjoyed
Supplied new in August 1987, this later model 2.5 litre ‘oval-dash’ 944 comes to us finished in classic Guards Red and sits on its original 15” Teledial alloy wheels finished in silver.
Under the bonnet, we find the popular 2.5 litre M44/40 inline four-cylinder petrol engine which developed 161bhp (when new) driving the rear wheels here via a traditional five-speed manual transmission.
Inside the cosy cockpit, we find half black vinyl and brown cloth interior with a partially electric driver’s seat, removable electric sunroof, electric windows, electric mirrors, digital clock, power steering, modern JVC face-off radio, heated rear screen and electric rear wiper.
The car shows 139,980 miles and has been in our vendor’s hands for the last 12 months after inheriting the car from a family member.
The history file includes the V5C recording 12 former keepers, a generic service book recording one stamp at 138,911 miles in November 2019 by CMS Porsche plus a second hand written entry at 139,003 miles in August 2020 including a timing belt service with water pump and balance shaft belt, PAS belt, and new coolant.
The file also includes a selection of bills for works undertaken including a £640 spend on refurbished callipers, replacement horn and other minor works in November 2022 at 139,924 miles by Welsh Porsche Specialist APS Automotive, a bill for a new DME relay in June 2021, supporting bills for the timing belt kit in 2020, clutch slave cylinder and four new tyres in 2019, new starter motor in 2017 plus a few older bills from the early 2000s.
We also find a spare set of keys, one old MOT and the current valid until November 2023 recording just two minor advisories for damage to the windscreen (see images) and corrosion to a fuel pipe.
Certainly one of the tidiest and well presented 2.5 litre 944’s we have seen for some time, the car looks and sounds well, evidently having been restored and/or very well cared for in recent years the car looks ready for some immediate use and enjoyment.
