Successor to the 924 front-engine sports car design, the Porsche 944 was introduced in Europe for the 1982 model year featuring improved suspension, brakes, and a new inline four-cylinder engine. This 1983 example is one of the earliest to have been sold in the United States and comes finished in black over a black partial leather interior. It equips a 5-speed manual transmission, a sunroof, a Blaupunkt stereo, and 15” Fuchs alloy wheels. Having spent time in Virginia and Maryland before making its way to Indiana, this 944 is now being offered for auction.
Finished in black, this 944 is said to have been repainted under a previous owner. Equipment includes pop-up headlights, body-color side moldings, a removable sunroof panel, a polished exhaust tip, a heated rear hatch window, and a black polyurethane rear spoiler. The 944 rides on factory 15” Fuchs alloy wheels dressed in Uniroyal tires. The seller notes some door dings and additional images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report.
The cabin is trimmed in black partial leather upholstery and includes a matching black carpet dashboard cover, power windows, a Blaupunkt stereo, black floor mats with Porsche lettering, and a driver's seat cover. The seller states that the clock, lighter, and power antenna are currently inoperable.
A naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four engine is paired with a 5-speed manual transaxle delivering up to 150 HP and 142 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels. Standard features include four-wheel independent suspension and power-assisted disc brakes. The CARFAX and a detailed list of service history are provided in the gallery and note regular oil and filter changes. Service since 2022 is said to include the installation of a new battery, a rebuilt A/C system, and an oil change.
This sale will include service records, owner’s manuals, a spare tire, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for visiting my auction. I have owned this car for over a year. I bought it to teach my son to drive a manual. We have driven this car at least once a week, in town and on the Highway. I keep it stored in a conditioned garage. The car is stock with a rebuilt AC in 2023 and new tires in 2022.”
