THE PORSCHE 944
Announced in 1981, the 944 was the third of Porsche’s new family of front-engined sports cars. Beneath the bodywork (which was 50mm wider than the 924 predecessor) was a 2.5-liter, overhead-camshaft ‘four’ – in effect half of the 928’s V8 bored out – fitted with twin balancer shafts to counter the vibration often encountered in such units. The rear transaxle (a five-speed affair this time) was retained, while the 924-type running gear was suitably up-rated to cope with the 944’s superior performance. Subsequent developments included a Turbo, 16-valve 944S/S2 and a cabriolet.
Porsche has not made anything like it since and today this appreciating modern classic enjoys an enthusiastic following worldwide.
THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
Offered here is what must be one of the best-kept 944 S Coupes available anywhere. Completed at the Neckarsulm-based Porsche factory in the initial production year, the 944 S was equipped for and delivered to the American market, accompanied by a long list of options and extras. According to the CARFAX report, the 944 S has remained in New Jersey since new, and has had just one previous owner.
Today, this sporting Porsche remains in highly original and extremely well-preserved condition, covering just 15,005 miles since new. Recently serviced, this 944 S continues to impress in the factory original livery of Zermatt Silver Metallic over a black interior. All compartments are clean with the factory applied decals in place and the car’s original owner’s manual is still present. These very usable Porsches offer sprite performance in a well-balanced sports car and should be recognized as some of the all-time greats from the Stuttgart manufacturer. This extremely well-presented, low mileage 5-speed example deserves serious consideration.
