BaT Auction: 38K-Mile 1987 Porsche 944 Turbo

This post was originally published on this site

This 1987 Porsche 944 Turbo shows just under 38k indicated miles and is finished in India Red over black partial leather. The car reportedly remained with its original owner in New Jersey until 2011, when it was acquired by the seller in Illinois. Power is provided by a turbocharged 2.5L inline-four linked to a rear-mounted 5-speed manual transaxle, and modifications include an aftermarket exhaust system and speakers. Approximately 4,200 miles have been added in the past seven years, and a timing belt and water pump replacement was performed less than 2k miles ago in 2014. This 951 is offered with receipts from current ownership, a clean Carfax report, and a clean Illinois title in the seller’s name.

Sheet metal wears India Red (LM3A) paint and no accidents are listed on the included Carfax report. The vehicle reportedly has not been driven in inclement weather and has been stored during winter months throughout the seller’s ownership.

The turbocharged 2.5L inline-four sends power through a rear-mounted 5-speed manual transaxle and was factory rated at 217 horsepower when new. A 2014 service at Semeria Imports of Wheeling, Illinois included replacement of the timing belt, water pump, thermostat, crankshaft seal, washer pump, drive belt, and engine mounts. An inspection was performed in April 2018, and the seller notes frequent oil changes as well as a new battery in summer 2017.
