1986 Porsche 944 Turbo

Up for auction is this 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo presented in Garnet Red Metallic over a Grey-Beige interior.  Currently under the care of its 3rd owner in Pennsylvania, this 1986 example is said to have been garage kept throughout its entire life while receiving all scheduled maintenance.  Highlighting some tasteful modifications and recent service items including the replacement of the timing belt and water pump, this 944 Turbo is said to be in exceptional condition with approximately 78k miles showing on the odometer.

The rarely seen Garnet Red Metallic finish is said to be in very nice shape with a few minor dings and some scratches located underneath the passenger side rear stone guard (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery).  This 944 Turbo can be distinguished by its aero front fascia and body-colored diffuser situated beneath the rear bumper.  Modifications include rolled rear fenders, 968 aero mirrors and aftermarket 17” Turbo Twist-style wheels which have been recently refinished and preserved under gunmetal Plastidip coating.  These wheels are currently dressed in R compound tires bearing less than 2k miles of use and the seller indicates that an additional set of correct factory 951 Fuchs wheels will also accompany the sale.

The Grey-Beige interior is reported to be in excellent condition with some minor wear on the driver’s seat bolster.  An aftermarket radio has been installed which is currently inoperable, however, the seller will also be including a brand-new Sony stereo.  The air conditioning is said to be nonfunctional along with the inner rear hatch release, power window switches and sunroof tilt feature.  The gas gauge is also reported to be a little sticky, although the seller has confirmed all other gauges and accessories to be working properly. Factory option codes listed on this car include:

  • 425- Rear Window Wiper
  • 431- 4-Spoke Leather Steering Wheel
  • 454- Cruise Control
  • 533- Anti-Theft Device
  • 650- Removable Sunroof

This 944 is equipped with a 2.5 L turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine which is rated at 220 HP stock.  Power is distributed to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission which had a new clutch installed at 69k miles.  An engine performance chip has been installed along with a K&N air filter, and the seller indicates that all new belts have been recently installed along with a new water pump, battery (2020) and starter motor.  This Turbo is noted to be in fantastic driving order.

The sale of this 951 will include a set of 2 keys, a clear title, original owner’s books and factory workshop manuals, some service records, a toolkit and air compressor. Do not miss out on this ideal opportunity to own a nicely configured 944 Turbo.

    @Tombo62 he believes the rear hatch is probably the switch.

  • PCARMARKET 5 daysago

    @Tombo62 hi. The windows do work intermittently. Most likely contacts on the switch or switch itself is the cause.

  • Tombo62 (registered bidder) 5 days, 1 hourago

    Do the power windows work? I know you mentioned the switches are inoperable!? Is the rear hatch just a broken cable?

    @lowendgarage I do not have the flag mirrors.

  • looneywi (seller) 5 days, 20 hoursago

    @lowendgarage if you own a garnet red you know that the color has more of a browner hue. The pictures came out more red looking on a cloudy day. In the sun, the color looks more like that color adjacent to the engine compartment shots.

    Do you have the flag mirrors?

  • lowendgarage 6 days, 4 hoursago

    @lowendgarage Maybe it is just the filter on the wide shots. The detail pictures represent the color correctly.

  • lowendgarage 6 days, 4 hoursago

    Take a look at the pic with the build tag. You can see garnet red behind it. Certainly not the exterior paint.

  • lowendgarage 6 days, 4 hoursago

    Does anyone know the deal with this paint? I own a Garnet Red 3.2 and this car is not garnet red. And I don't think it's the filter on the photos.

  • looneywi (seller) 6 days, 6 hoursago

    The accompanying 951 Fuchs are worth about $2000.

    @tff No coolant leak. I caught this too in the picture and it was about 1/4 gallon low after completing the water pump replacement. Cheers!

  • tff 1 week, 3 daysago

    Nice looking Turbo... The coolant level looks way low. Is that an illusion or is it? Any coolant leaks?

  • looneywi (seller) 1 week, 3 daysago

    @fehrevilo duly noted! Cheers.

  • supercarrera911R (registered bidder) 1 week, 3 daysago

    Love the color, wish it had black interior.

  • fehrevilo (registered bidder) 1 week, 4 daysago

    How difficult is it to run a vacuum prior to assembling what is an otherwise great presentation?
