Now available for auction is this 1985 Porsche 944 presented in Guards Red over a black interior. This 1985 example is said to have been kept in outstanding condition over the years while remaining highly original. With approximately 40k miles shown on the odometer, this 2-owner 944 Coupe is now being offered by its seller in Texas backed by a clean Carfax report.
Said to have been garage-kept and barely driven under the current ownership, the Guards Red finish is noted to be in excellent overall condition with the exception of a small chip on the lower driver’s side rocker panel. Full ceramic coating was applied within the last 6 months and the paint is reported to be all original (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). A removable vinyl racing stripe has been installed along the top of the car and a genuine 944 Turbo lower valence has been added, although this Coupe remains otherwise stock in its appearance with factory 15” “Cookie Cutter” wheels.
Inside, this 944 is appointed with a black leather interior featuring Porsche logo upholstery on the front and rear seats. The cabin is reported to be in very good condition with some minor hairline cracks on the dashboard. Aside from a carpet dashboard cover, the interior is said to be highly original with the factory Blaupunkt radio remaining fully functional along with all other gauges and accessories.
Representing the final iteration of the 944 Series 1, this Coupe is equipped with a naturally aspirated 2.5 L inline 4-cylinder engine which sends 150 HP to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transaxle. All routine service is reported to be up to date and the seller confirms this 944 to be in excellent driving condition.
This sale will be accompanied by 1 master key, owner’s books, service records from the current ownership, tools, a spare tire and car cover. This impeccably well maintained 1985 example makes the perfect transaxle Porsche for any discerning enthusiast, do not let this opportunity pass you by.
