DEAL TANK: 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo

Up for auction is this 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo. The 944 is one of Porsche's most popular sports cars ever produced. Specifically, the Turbo was considered the top-of-the-line model, providing increased performance and bespoke styling. This example is being offered in excellent driver-grade condition with 118k miles on the odometer. Finished in rarely-seen Maraschino Red Metallic and fitted with many tasteful upgrades, it is sure to grab the attention of sports car enthusiasts. 

The current owner states that the paint had been professionally refinished prior to his purchase in 2006. The car now shows to be in great condition. The seller also states that he did have the front bumper resprayed under his ownership to correct rock chips. The only noted flaws are minor fading near the hatch and body side molding, and a slightly loose bumper pad.

Bespoke to the 944 Turbo, the exterior features upgraded rear side diffusers, streamlined front bumper and fenders, and upgraded under trays. Complementing this unique exterior are a set of black painted 18” Turbo Twist wheels that are in excellent condition.

The Black and Tan leather is stated to be in great condition for its age and mileage.  Only a few cracks are noted on the dashboard of this otherwise completely intact interior. A few noteworthy performance upgrades include: Autopower bolt in rollbar, Momo Millenium Evo steering wheel, aluminum non-slip pedals, UEGO wideband O2 display, and a VDO boost gauge. All components are stated to be in working order including the factory sunroof, windows, and air conditioning.
