EQUIPMENT
Cherished “944” number plate, LSD, door panel inserts, automatic speed control, alarm system, graduated top tint screen, leather steering wheel, gear selector and gaiter, desirable and rare, period Panasonic Hi Fi radio / cassette, LW/MW/FM, electric sports seats, windows and door mirrors, cruise control, headlight wash system, intermittent wipers, front and rear fog lights, fully operational pop-up headlights, heated rear screen with wiper, boost gauge, perfect digital clock with fully visible display (a rarity for anyone who knows their 944’s!!), removable panoramic roof panel, original, and again super rare, stowage bag with zip fastener, all colour co-ordinated, 16”inch spare wheel, complete tool-roll, original Porsche over-mats, A/C.

EXTERIOR
Alpine White, factory code L90E, just benefited from a full machine polish and topcoat treatment. Now presenting in tremendous condition, with no scratches, dents or any evidence of corrosion. All wheels have been removed and arches fully cleaned and inspected. We found no deterioration what so ever, and have detailed photographic evidence, should this be of interest to any potential buyers. Wiper arms and all blades appear new. All trim and rubber seals remain in fine order.
All glass is original, and has been security etched by Ring-Mark from Autoglass, with the original and remaining, personal “944” registration number, another reassuring sign of careful ownership. Supplying Main Dealer, rear window sticker, has been left to respect authenticity. Lenses are all free from any cracks or crazing. Panel gaps, as expected, appear within factory tolerances.

INTERIOR
Belies its 33 years of service, and could easily pass for a vehicle covering minimal mileage. The desirable Burgundy/Oxblood leather makes a refreshing change from the more mundane black or grey, while adding a level or refinement and quality. In superb condition, with no scratches or tares, but just the correct amount of pleasing patination. The high back Sport Seats offer superb lateral support by incorporating proud side bolsters. The dashboard, centre console, door-cards and headlining are all un-marked, with the rear seats totally as new, appearing to have never carried a passenger. Dials are clear and bright, and the Boost Gauge, a wonderful retro nod to the 80’s. Original Porsche over-mats have preserved the carpeting throughout.

WHEELS & TYRES
16” inch Tele-dials, with black over silver Porsche crest centre caps, all in a top order having been recently refurbished and lightweight alloy wheel nuts.
All tyres are matching Continental Conti Sport Contacts, 225/50 R16’s at the rear, 205/55ZR16 at the front, N-rated with substantial tread depths all around and even wear having covered only approx two thousand miles.

THE DRIVE & ENGINE
The factory designation 951, known as the 944, utilises the well trialed M44/51, 2.5 litre in-line four cylinder Turbo charged engine with forged pistons. Developing approx 220 bhp, front/mid mounted and capable of reaching 0-60 mph in approx 5.5 /5.9sec (depending on sources) and a top speed around 152 mph. With pioneering use of turbo ceramic port liners, this helped to retain gas temperature, reliability any efficiency. Audi designed, rear mounted transaxle, provide a near perfect weigh distribution. Braking is extremely effective due to Brembo 4 piston fixed calipers with 12” discs all round. This model benefits from the later revised, and slightly stiffer, suspension, flush mounted windscreen, and of course those Tele-Dial 16”inch alloys.
There is no smoke upon start up, engine runs and idles smoothly, as to be expected from such a well cared for example. Performance is brisk, even by today’s standards, easily holding its own against more modern competitors, with legendary, lithe handling resulting in a true driver’s car. Certainly a rare and unmissable opportunity to acquire a one owner from new Porsche 944 Turbo Coupe.
