Sharing its engine with the prior model year's exclusive Turbo S version, the 1989 Porsche 944 Turbo features a 944 Turbo Cup racing power unit with an enlarged turbocharger, a 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 250 HP, a transmission oil cooler, a limited-slip differential, a 5-speed manual transmission, and more. This 1989 Porsche 944 Turbo comes finished in Guards Red over a black leather interior. It is now being offered by its seller out of Minnesota while showing just over 52k miles on the odometer.

This example came factory-optioned with a Guards Red (LM3A) finish. The 944 Turbo is characterized by its sleek and aerodynamic shape, featuring Turbo-specific body enhancements including front and rear spoilers, side skirts, and a rear diffuser. Equipment also includes iconic pop-up headlights and 16” alloy disc wheels dressed in new Pirelli P Zero tires. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The cabin sports black partial leather upholstery with a removable sunroof panel. Equipment includes a factory alarm system, Blaupunkt radio, power steering, a central locking system, automatic climate control, and a headlamp cleaning system. The seller notes very slight wear on the driver’s seat bolster and confirms all gauges, electronics, and accessories to be working properly.

Power is derived from a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine rated at 250 HP and 258 lb.-ft of torque. The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed manual transmission with a factory limited-slip differential, allowing for acceleration from 0-60 MPH in approximately 5.7 seconds stock. Performance features include a specially-tuned sport suspension, an uprated clutch to handle increased torque, larger brakes borrowed from the 928 S4, and a Bosch anti-lock braking system. The seller adds that a new timing belt and retention, water pump, radiator hoses, rollers and seals, rear shocks, and front brake pads & sensors have been installed and a transmission fluid change was carried out. Additionally, the R134 refrigerant is said to have been filled. No outstanding maintenance items have been reported at this time.

This sale will include a clean title, owner’s manuals, sales literature, a spare tire, a toolkit, and some documentation.

 

The seller would like you to know: “I have been around Porsches since I was 18. I am an active PCA member, past chapter President, Chapter chief driving instructor, and National PCA certified instructor. The car was a one-owner car until he passed away, I got the car from the estate and went thru and update what was needed. The car drivers like new. The car is completely unmolested and stock. This is a 34-year-old time capsule.”

    @rhmoritz it’s stock so goes to 1 3/4 bar. No starting or electrical issues. Have a new DME relay in my glove box also.

    Does the turbo spool up fully to 2 bar? Any starting or electrical issues? I always kept a spare DME relay in the glovebox. Very nice example!

    @rhmoritz you know your 944’s! 🥰 No delamanation and rear hatch switch works. Brake fluid clean.No power steering leaks.clutch pedal feels soft and works great! As you know clutch pedal hard is a bad thing. Motor mounts good as when you rev the rpm’s and let it drop on its own no vibration. Coolant was done at time of water pump 2021. I appreciate 944 gurus.

  • rhmoritz (registered bidder) 9 months, 3 weeksago

    Prior 1991 944S2 owner here. Any delamination present on the rear hatch glass? Does remote hatch release switch work? Any leaks from the power steering hoses or seals? Original clutch and motor mounts? Recent coolant and brake flush?
    Thanks!
