36K-Mile 1987 Porsche 944 Turbo 5-Speed

Up for auction is this 1987 Porsche 944 Turbo finished in Black over a Black interior.  Produced as the top-of-the line Porsche 944 model of its day, this 1987 Turbo comes with desirable factory options including a limited slip differential, Sport Seats and Sport Shock Absorbers.  This 944 also showcases aftermarket performance upgrades including a custom exhaust with B&B headers, upgraded sway bars and a Lindsey Racing fuel system with performance ECU chip.  Reported to be in fantastic overall condition with original paint while showing just over 36k miles on the odometer, this tastefully equipped 944 Turbo is just waiting to be driven by a new owner.

The Black paint on this 944 is reported to be entirely original and in excellent condition with clear protective film applied over the front end and mirror covers.  A few small rock chips have been indicated as well as a couple of very small dings on the driver’s side rear quarter panel (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with paint meter readings).  As a Turbo model, this 944 can be distinguished by its aerodynamically improved nose and body colored rear diffuser.  A factory optioned sunroof is equipped along with genuine Porsche “Phone Dial” wheels which were recently refinished and dressed in Continental Extreme Contact Sport tires.

Inside, this 944 features a well-presented Black interior with factory Sport Seats.  Minor signs of wear are present on the driver’s seat bolster as well as 2 very small cracks in the dashboard near the glovebox.  The factory Blaupunkt radio has been retained and the cabin is said to be highly original with all gauges and accessories working properly.  A small non-functional LED light has been pointed out which is believed to be a remnant from a previously installed alarm system.

This 944 is powered by a turbocharged 2.5 L inline 4-cylinder engine which sends 220 HP stock to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transaxle with limited slip differential.  Factory optional Koni Sport Shocks are equipped in addition to the following aftermarket performance upgrades:

  • B&B Headers
  • Lindsey Racing Mid-Pipe
  • Borla 4" Muffler
  • Magnaflow Resonator
  • Lowering Springs
  • 30mm Front Sway Bar
  • Adjustable Rear Sway Bar
  • Lindsey Racing ECU Chip
  • Lindsey Racing Fuel Rail
  • Lindsey Racing Fuel Pump and Lines
  • Tubular Chromoly Lower Control Arms,
  • Cryo Brake Rotors

Although this 944 was set up for performance driving, the seller assures that it was never raced and only tracked sparingly on a few occasions.  All necessary maintenance has been kept up to date including a timing belt replacement in June of 2018.  The seller confirms this Turbo to be in fantastic running order while achieving a claimed output of approximately 300 HP on the dyno at 15psi of boost.

This sale will include a set of 3 keys, all service records dating back to 1999, the original books, manuals and window sticker, a complete toolkit, spare tire, Porsche touch-up paint and a car cover.  Factory components will also be included such as the original front springs, ECU chip and exhaust manifold.  Offered in very good overall condition while showcasing tasteful options and high-end upgrades, this 944 Turbo presents an incredible value.

    @991.1GT3 The previous owner was a certified Porsche driving instructor and had other designated track cars. During his ownership, between 2013 and 2018, he installed the chassis upgrades but then decided the car was too nice for racing. He only took the car out on the track for a couple of porsche club DE events, no actual racing was done with the car. Stock brake pads were installed at 33k miles and the rotors were in excellent condition which is a good indicator that the car was driven gently. The water pump was replaced in 2013 at 27k miles.

    Can you confirm how much track time this has? I see track alignment and track brake pads.

    Also, I don’t see any the water pump replacement, can you confirm if this has been recently changed out?

    @mdavidson The paint is all original. I was trying to show that there was plenty of orange peel still left and that the car had not been buffed to death. The pop up headlights and sunroof work perfectly

    And the pop up headlights operate as they should? Thanks again

  • mdavidson (registered bidder) 3 days, 13 hoursago

    @jnewhall It’s a bit difficult to tell what Photo #30 and #31 are showing. Has that area of the fender been touched up or respirated? Thanks again.

    @mdavidson The tires have 1200 miles on them and we're installed less then a year ago. Dates on tires put rear manufactured late 2018 and front date codes of early 2019. Pads were replaced at 33k miles and rotors are in good shape with very little wear. Car has been stored in climate controlled garage since 1999 and based on condition of paint I would say most of its life. Cover was only used for indoor storage to keep any dust off of the paint.

  • mdavidson (registered bidder) 4 days, 13 hoursago

    @jnewhall Hi @jnewhall
    A few questions please:

    1) What is the condition of the tires, and what year date do they have?
    2) What is the condition of the rotors and pads?
    3) Has the car been stored indoors under cover, or is the car cover for outdoors?

    Thank you

    @911or968 Sorry, I just re read your question and what you see in those pictures is a light scuff in the clear protective film only. The paint underneath is still in good shape.

    @911or968 It looks like it was a rock chip that was nicely touched up.

  • 911or968 (registered bidder) 5 days, 16 hoursago

    Hi @jnewhall, nice new pics, appreciate the transparency on pics #33-35. It’s a bit hard to tell with shadows, how would you describe the paint blemish - has the black top coat been pierced or is it a stain? Thanks!

  • jnewhall (seller) 5 days, 16 hoursago

    @job The a/c has been converted to R134a, works properly, and blows super cold. There are no other issue with this 944 other then needing a new owner to enjoy her.

  • job (registered bidder) 5 days, 17 hoursago

    Hi @jnewhall,
    Beautiful Turbo here.
    Does the AC work properly ?
    Anything wrong with this car which is not written in the description ?
    Thanks

  • jnewhall (seller) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @911or968 I have looked under dash and underhood and cowl area. Also checked center console area behind radio. The led is unhooked and I see no traces of alarm system anywhere. Looks to have been a clean removal except for the LED. Battery tray is in great shape, no rust, just 2 paint chips on hold down itself

  • 911or968 (registered bidder) 1 week, 1 dayago

    @jnewhall: nice looking Turbo! Has the alarm system been removed except for the indicator light? Also, how’s the battery pan area, is it free of rust/corrosion? Thanks!

  • jnewhall (seller) 1 week, 2 daysago

    Thank you for looking at the 944 turbo and getting bidding started. I apologize for some of the pictures being low quality. I have a photographer coming this afternoon to do a photo shoot and will get the new pictures posted as soon as possible. If you have any questions or requests for specific photos please let me know.
