The vehicle in detail

This UK-supplied, right-hand-drive Porsche 944 Turbo ‘S’ is classically finished in Guards Red and was first registered on 1st August 1988. The smart interior is in black leatherette with a black and white, ‘pin-stripe’ velour and interestingly, the ‘Sport’ seats were deleted in favour of electric, heated comfort seats. Another interesting option on this Turbo S is that the car was ordered with a request for the M44.51 engine as opposed to the M44.52 that would normally have been fitted to this model year, perhaps opting for the earlier unit without the spring-loaded cam-belt tensioner. Today, this special and rare 944 Turbo S presents beautifully with a detailed maintenance record. Indicating just 89,186 miles (at the time of cataloguing) with just four previous owners, it’s clear to see by looking through the history folder that this example has been very well maintained over the years. Indeed, the previous fastidious owner, bought the 944 in 2017 and sent the car to the local Porsche main dealer in Wolverhampton for a full check over and the subsequent work included fitting the correct M030 sports shock absorbers, a full brake service, a short shift gear lever kit and an uprated gear linkage with a final invoice for £2,700.00.

A little later, the car was taken to the Porsche specialist CMS in Telford for further maintenance and this included a new throttle position sensor, cable and fuel pump. To enhance the car’s performance, a refurbished KKK turbocharger was fitted along with an ECU update taking the power output up to a claimed 290bhp.

In May 2021, the current owner sent the 944 to Midland Classic Restorations and spent £1,400 on new oil, filters, routine maintenance etc (invoice and details on file) ensuring that the car is ready for its next owner to use and enjoy. Offered with its original book pack including the stamped service record, the tool kit, tyre inflator, a large folder of invoices, old MOT Certificates, its current MOT valid until 28th January 2022 and other related documents. Only 1,000 examples of the Turbo ‘S’ were built in total with just 77 in RHD and only a handful in Guards Red so this is a very good opportunity to take ownership of an interesting and rare Porsche from the late 1980s. Revered for excellent handling, these transaxle models are becoming increasingly collectable and are difficult to source in such fine condition.
