Porsche 944

Year: 1986|Miles: 74,600|Ext: Red|Int: Black|

This wonderful 1986 Porsche 944 coupe comes most recently from our own private collection, and is a fabulously original car that has had just three owners from new, including ourselves. With just 74,600 miles from new, it remains excellent throughout. The body is straight and free of corrosion, with the original Guards Red paint in remarkable condition, showing only a few very minor blemishes that are consistent with a cherished original car. The hood and hatch fit properly, and the doors shut with factory-fresh precision. Exterior trim is in very good order, the car never having been in an accident. Original Phone Dial alloy wheels wrapped in excellent Pirelli tires with plenty of tread life.
Mechanically, this 944 is completely standard and unmodified. The car was purchased from the original owner, a doctor, at 70,000 miles, and then thoroughly recommissioned with a fresh timing belt, balance shaft belts, drive belts, cam seals, engine mounts, assorted gaskets and seals, water pump, brake hoses, brake pads, transaxle fluid change, and a thorough inspection by water-cooled Porsche experts Provost Motorsports in New Jersey. Of course, full documentation of the work performed is included. It runs and drives beautifully, feeling very fresh, tight and every bit as one would expect from a low mileage and original 944. A pure sports car with sublime balance and hardly a squeak or rattle from the body.
Inside, black leather upholstery is in excellent order, showing no rips, tears or excessive wear. An aftermarket radio is the only deviation from standard, but incredibly, the original Blaupunkt radio is included and in fine order. Carpets, door panels and headlining are excellent and the dash is crack free. The original bag for the removable sunroof panel is included and the trunk includes the complete original tool kit which appears to be unused and excellent, down to the factory supplied vinyl gloves.
RB Collection is very pleased to offer this outstanding example of a highly desirable, collectible cult-classic. It is a very rare opportunity to acquire an unmodified, highly original 944 in impeccable condition. Please contact us for more information on this wonderful and collectible entry-level Porsche.

Following the demise of the mid-engine 914, the front-engine, water-cooled 924 was developed in conjunction with Volkswagen as Porsche?s next entry level sports car. As with the 914 before it, Volkswagen was to play a significant role in sales and distribution of the car, with Porsche doing the development work. Standard cars would be branded as VWs and the 924 Turbo would wear Porsche badges and be offered in Porsche dealers. And just like with the 914 before it, the deal with VW fell through and Porsche was left holding the whole bag for development costs. The standard 924 may have lacked somewhat in outright performance, but there was little doubt that the Audi-derived four-cylinder engine was paired with a brilliant chassis, the transaxle layout providing near perfect balance. Porsche took over the whole program, and further refined the car with a wider track, revised styling and most importantly, an in-house designed cylinder head. With that, the 944 was born, a true Porsche in its balance, performance and quality.
