BaT Auction: 1987 Porsche 944 Turbo at No Reserve

This post was originally published on this site

This 1987 Porsche 944 Turbo is finished in black over black leather, and was delivered new through Autohaus Porsche. Factory options include a rear wiper, cruise control, an alarm, and an electric sunroof. Its previous owner purchased the car in 2010 with 119k miles, and recently traded it in to the selling dealer on another Porsche. The odometer now shows 127,700 miles, and power comes from a turbocharged 2.5L I4 paired with a 5-speed transaxle. Service records are included, and reportedly indicate over $20k spent since 2010, including a rebuilt top-end and major service at 119k miles as detailed below. Modifications include a performance ECU chip and an aftermarket CD player. This 951 is now being offered at no reserve with the service file, a clear Carfax, and a clean Pennsylvania title.

According to the seller, the hood and nose of this 944 Turbo were previously repainted to correct road wear. Current imperfections include a ding near the driver’s door handle, a touched-up 3″ scratch on the driver’s rear fender, stone chips on the side-view mirrors and lower front bumper, faded door edge guards, and some checking on the 3M stone guards.

The black leather upholstery shows some wear and waviness, along with loose stitching around the middle inserts. A few cracks are present in the dashboard near the defroster vents, and the shift knob is also worn.

An aftermarket CD player is fitted, and the mechanical odometer currently shows just under 127,700 miles, which is backed up by the Carfax and included maintenance records.

The turbocharged 2.5L I4 developed 220 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 243 lb-ft of torque at 3,500 rpm when new, and the ECU has been fitted with a performance (1.5 bar max) chip. The stamped maintenance booklet records servicing at Autohaus Porsche through 67k miles in 1992, and the previous owner serviced the car at Translog in York, Pennsylvania.
