Power comes from a naturally aspirated 2.5 L inline 4-cylinder engine which is mated to a number’s matching 5-speed manual transmission.  150 HP is sent to the rear wheels providing for a 0-60 time of approximately 8 seconds.  There have been no modifications made and the seller notes that a major service was carried out at 30k miles which included a new water pump and timing belt.  Included service records show routine maintenance with a complete fluid and filter service performed at 34k miles,  this 944 is said to be in exceptional running order.

The sale of this 944 will include a set of two keys, service records and the original books, window sticker and spare tire.  For any enthusiast in search of a well-preserved Porsche 944, this 1-owner 1985 example represents the perfect opportunity.

    @gunnr52 Hi
    Yes I had one of the headlights painted to remove the only stone chip. It was done so well you can’t tell it was done or which one was done. I think this is shown when looking at photos. It doesn’t show.

    Impressively immaculate and incredibly low mileage!!!

  • Myporsche944 (seller) 2 months, 2 weeksago

    This is a 1985 .5 model. That means it has the updated dash and air conditioning that runs very cold. As you can tell by the pictures, there are no scratches or stone chips. Looking for someone else to love it.
