1985 Porsche 944 Coupe For Sale
|This advert viewed 690 times|
|The Porsche 944 was developed from the 924 series, a line of cars built at Audi's Neckarsulm factory and derided by enthusiasts as unworthy of the Porsche badge. Constant development had exhausted the potential of the 2.0-litre VW engine and the logical progression was to develop an engine in-house at Zuffenhausen. Unveiled at the 1981 Frankfurt Motor Show, the 944 was an instant hit. Utilising what was effectively half a 928 engine, the 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine developed 163bhp and was clothed in a body that was similar to a smoothed-out 924 Carrera GT Le Mans underlining the 944's more hardcore appeal. It went on sale in the UK at the tail end of 1982 badged as a Lux and soon garnered a loyal following and deservedly the 944 went on to outsell the 924 - keeping Porsche afloat during the tough years of the early 1980s.|
According to Porsche GB, this example - VIN No: WP0ZZZ94ZFN422299 and Engine No: 41F42142 is a 'matching numbers' car and was built in Germany on 25th January 1985 and was supplied new to its first owner by Porsche dealer Motortune Ltd on the Brompton Road in London, SW3 on 22nd February 1985 and registered with the private number plate UHH 1S.
The car is finished in its original specification of Guards Red with the lovely Pasha Brown/Fawn check cloth and vinyl trim, Rear Seats, Brown carpets, electric Windows, electric Mirrors, electric and removable Sun Roof, 2.5 Litre Engine, 5 Speed Manual Gearbox, new Stainless Steel Exhaust System, new tinted Windscreen, new Starter Motor, Power Assisted Steering, Front & Rear Disc Brakes, original Porsche 15" Teledial Alloy Wheels with relatively new Firestone Tyres.
It was maintained and serviced regularly by Motortune and latterly AFN and had covered 72,000 miles when it was sold and permanently exported to Jersey in the Channel Islands in 1991 and registered there with the Jersey number plate J61559.
The new Jersey owner only covered around 4,000 miles in the car and it was dry stored for a number of years before he eventually sold it in Jersey in 2014 with the mileage at 76,388 to the current owners brother. It was purchased from him in 2017 and imported to England and was re-registered here in February 2019 when it was MOT'd and remarkably, the DVLA issued the car with its original private number plate UH H1S.
The car was serviced in September 2017 @ 80,444 miles and had a new Cam Belt fitted and was last serviced by Porsche specialist Nine Excellence in Horley, Surrey in May 2019 @ 82,337 miles. It has also has just had new front Brake Discs and Pads, plugs and filters and it has now covered a genuine and relatively low 83,994 miles from new!
This car really is in exceptional condition throughout and the lovey pasha interior is in superb condition and gives you a real sense of how these cars left the factory! The body and paint are excellent with only the odd little mark and it really is beautiful to drive.
This is surely one of the nicest 944’s currently for sale and comes with its original and fully stamped Maintenance book, invoices and perhaps very importantly, its original Private Number Plate UHH 1S which was put on from new and which certainly adds to its value, as on its own it is worth £1,000+.
The car now has a new MOT valid until 19/01/2021 and upon sale it will come with our own 6 Month Mechanical Warranty which can be extended and upgraded at additional cost if required.
