1987 Porsche 944

Hello, am offering up for bid my partially restored red 1987 Porsche 944 951 Turbo. I was restoring this car for one of my sons and he decided to go in another direction; so we stopped. I have receipts for the rebuild plus the Lindsey kits, tc. that total over $10,000 not counting the car itself. I don't know when, ut I believe the 944 Turbo will have its day to rise in value as other older Porsche's have. You can finish this project or it would be a great parts car with all the new parts that have been installed and the overall mechanical condition.

Please feel free to ask me any questions.

Note: This Porsche has less than 100 verifiable miles on it since all the work below was completed.


  • We dropped the entire lower chassis to view what was necessary and worked on what was needed (See pictures)

Powder Coating:

  • I powder coated everything that I could (see the pictures)

  • I had an 89 944 Turbo S that I rebuilt and put a larger HP kit on. I took the “S” turbo off of that car and put it on this one. It is the original or OEM “S” turbo.
  • Adjustable Boost Controller and Gauge

  • The powered front bucket seats were re-upholstered.
  • The carpet is in good condition with two front mats
  • The dashboard has cracks
  • The power windows and mirrors work
  • The speedometer is original and is fully functional. The trip-meter even works.


  • 18” Turbo Look Rims are shown
  • An original set of the “cookie cutters” comes with the car. (See pictures)
  • Spare tire and tool kit are there

Sellers Notes: You can see a lot was put into the car to this point; no expense was spared for the above listed work. What I write below is what was on my list to do but has not been done.

  • The AC compressor is there but needs to be replaced
  • The motor works for the sunroof but does not open
  • Most of the body looks really good but there are several areas that need help. The clear coat is coming off on the roof area, couple of dents shown and there is an area of rust behind the front left tire (See pictures)
  • The alternator was not replaced but did work when the rebuild was done
  • The shifter linkage needs to be tightened up. It works and shifts but it is sloppy and loose.
  • Window tinting is all the way around, ut the back rear glass needs to be redone.
  • The arm rest is there but is broken/detached
  • Although the electric adjustable bucket seats have been professionally re-upholstered, n some areas the interior would still need attention
