I asked my wife to transfer a five figure sum from our joint savings so I could fulfil a childhood dream 30 years in the making. She gave me a strange look. Plans have changed and we need more house space so building works it is and my dream comes to an abrupt halt.

Up for sale is my much loved and treasured 1989 Porsche 944 Turbo with the uprated 'S' specification with M030 handling package and limited slip differential. It has the M44 / 52 engine which is the uprated 250BHP motor all 944 Turbos received from 1989 - the very same engine in the Silver Rose 944 Turbo S. What makes this one special is the M030 option with the lowered suspension, limited slip differential and the handling package, delivering the same experience as the 1988 Silver Rose Turbo S. This one is trimmed with the classic Porsche 'pin stripe' blue interior with sport seats (deep bolsters for spirited cornering).

The person I bought from was a collector and was trimming down said collection.

Work carried out previous to my 5 minutes of ownership:

Full re-spray in glacier blue (I looked high and low for this colour for YEARS!)

New front brakes and pads

Door sills done

MOT to May 2021

18" turbo 'twist' 911 allow wheels with lots of tread

Service and maintenance as required including cam belts

New battery

Big history box file with receipts, owners manual and spare keys

Apparently this car was nicknamed "Fritz" by a previous owner

*MOT advisory states brake lines slightly corroded (this is a typical malady for the 944s)

It's a 31 year old car but things like the electric roof pop up, clock, Hi-Fi, pop up lights, part electric seats, power windows all work.

Interior is tidy with usual dash cracks (they can likely be repaired without replacing the dash, they don't look too bad).

Drivers bolster is worn where you enter and exit the car, again typical for the age and because the bolsters are huge for cornering efficiency. A trim shop can sort this out.

Aircon needs a re-charge

I had this inspected at a Porsche specialist and they picked up the brake line corrosion per the MOT, a slight leak in the AC (hence needing a recharge), crack in the fog lens. I have taken this into consideration as I would be doing all this if I was going to keep it. I'm getting a loft dormer instead (doesn't drive as nice as the Porsche)

Speaking of which - it drives like a Porsche should, tight, excellent responsive handling, and the turbo rush is to die for. Feels like the day I drove the Turbo S in my 20s.

The anti-lock light is on but the car brakes fine, it's just come on and after speaking to some Porsche enthusiasts and experts, I'm told it's likely a wheel speed sensor as it only comes on after you set off. Even if it is the ABS pump, parts are readily available and I have priced this lower than ALL equivalent card in the UK at the time of writing.

The headlining near the rear hatch is coming away slightly from the roof but it's not sagging at all.

The boot carpet is good and under that looks clean and corrosion free (see photo)

17" Cup 1 replica wheels for sale separately with Continental N rated specific Porsche tyres on the rear and normal continentals on the front.

Aftermarket steering wheel (I've bought the correct Porsche steering wheel which I will include in the sale as I wanted everything period correct). I've even sourced the correct 944 Turbo forged 16 x 9 alloys from Germany but I will leave the new owner to decide on wheels. It drives great on the 18s. Also the chrome exhaust tip isn't for me but I'll leave than in place for the future lucky owner to decide if it stays or goes.

These are very rare, there are two on auto trader both higher priced than this and one over £22k. Even a much lower spec 1987 car on Trader is more than this better spec '89. I have priced this aggressively to sell, one of the nicest out there with fresh paint, unmarked alloys, decent interior. Barn finds and incomplete cars are selling for £10k plus because they are so rare. This is a slice of motoring history and the most sought after 944 model out there. The cherry on top is the M030 spec with limited slip diff and handling package. The 944 to have. I will deeply regret selling this car as some are near £30,000 now (granted with lower mileage). 7-8 years ago these could be bought as low as £2,500 in road worth condition. Gives you an idea of how fast they are appreciating and how rare they are becoming.

So, put me out of my misery, come and see the car, hand over some cash and I can get my stupid house extension instead...
