The vehicle in detail

The 944 Turbo was launched in January 1985, with production ending in 1989. It is the top-of-the-line model in the 944 family. With a near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution, the 944 proved to be a competent entry-level GT that was just as exciting to drive as it was to admire. These were fast cars for the era, with 0-60 times in the six-second range and a top speed in excess of 150 mph.

The first owner was from Ballwin, Missouri, who purchased the Turbo on November 9, 1987, and the title was issued on December 28, 1987. Over 16 years, the Turbo was only driven 41,000 miles before it was stored in a climate-controlled garage from 2003 to 2017.

On April 27, 2017, the second owner had a full service done by Reid Vann Import Specialist in Rock Hill, Missouri. This included a new fuel pump, fuel filter, DME relay, fuel tank sending unit, and changed oil and oil filter. The timing belt was replaced, along with the camshaft belt roller, balance shaft roller, flange gasket, timing belt rollers, thermostat kit, seal, balance shaft tensioner, crankshaft seal, and drive belt.

The third owner from Newport Beach, California, was on a business trip in St. Louis, Missouri, just before the 4th of July in 2017. He had dinner with the second owner (a personal friend), not knowing that he had the 944 Turbo that he was getting ready to sell. After seeing the 944 Turbo the next day, after a month, the third owner decided to purchase the Turbo in September of 2017.

Over the past seven years, the third owner has meticulously maintained the Turbo, and it has always been garage-kept. The air conditioning was completely gone through by D&S Auto Air, including a new compressor, drier, and pressure switch, and the climate control unit was rebuilt. A new radiator and thermostat were installed while the air conditioning was being repaired. In 2019, new Koni adjustable front sport struts and rear sport shocks were installed. In June of 2023, Comeau Racing Enterprises in San Diego, California, performed a major service, including the replacement of the timing belt, counterbalance shaft belt, 4 rollers, auto tensioner, front main seal, oil pump O-ring, oil pump drive sleeve, the cam housing, engine mounts, and sway bar bushings. New spark plugs, spark plug wires, air filter, engine oil, and oil filter were also replaced, and $4,838 was spent. Recently, in 2024, a new Porsche windscreen, Interstate battery, speakers, an O2 sensor, and four new Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 tires were installed.

The 1988 944 Turbo is powered by a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 220 horsepower with 243 lb-ft of torque @ 3500 rpm. The transmission is a manual 5-speed that goes through all the gears perfectly, and it has a four-wheel disc braking system. Acceleration is 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds, and a top speed is 152 mph.

Complete with extensive service records dating back to 2017, owner’s manual, Blaupunkt radio manual, wheel lock keys, air compressor, jack, tool kit, removable sunroof bag, rear sunshade, and clean Carfax. The Turbo is up to date on all scheduled maintenance and is in fantastic driving condition. Incredible opportunity to buy the end-of-an-era and increasingly collectible Porsche 944 Turbo.
