  • Desirable manual example offered in Guards Red with Black cloth interior

  • Just 89,203 miles from new with comprehensive service history

Porsche introduced the 944 in 1982 to replace the Porsche 924 as their entry-level model, although the 924 continued until 1988 as an even lower-priced alternative. Many Porsche enthusiasts considered the 944 to be the first real front engine Porsche, because it didn’t have the Audi sourced 2.0 litre engine from the 924. Instead, the 944 started life with a 2.5 litre straight-4 engine which was based on one-half of the Porsche 928's V8 engine. Based on the earlier 924 body, some noticeable changes included flared wings, flared quarter panel and a larger rear spoiler.

Presented in Guards Red with contrasting Black cloth interior, this 1984 Porsche 944 was purchased by its current owner in 2013 with the intention of undertaking some minor renovations, but unfortunately never found the time. The car has been stored in a dry barn, with the condition of the interior and plastics clearly showing this, but is now offered for sale due to relocation. Subject to a recommissioning service including oil filter and plugs on 03 May 2022, a new battery fitted and toad alarm/immobiliser removed due to lost fob, this particular example is offered with related registration ‘OIB 9442’, as well as a small number of spares including drive belts, replacement gear cover and more. The odometer currently displays only 89,203 miles.

Offered with the vehicle is a comprehensive history containing a Haynes repair manual, 2x 944 service information manuals, its original bookpack containing pocket guide to Porsche ownership, letter from Porsche GB, Porsche Possessions booklet, Porsche directory and service booklet and maintenance book containing 10 stamps. Also included is a large collection of previous MOTs dating back to 1989, with most years from 1989 to 2005. As well as this, an extensive collection of previous invoices dating back to 1990. The vendor rates the condition of the engine, electrical equipment, transmission and interior trim all as ‘Very Good’, the bodywork as ‘Good’ and the paintwork ‘Average’.
