If you’re reading this, ou probably know exactly what you’re looking at. 46K original miles VIN = WPOAA2955KN150378 99.9% original : No rust, o accidents, o smoke, o door dings, o cracks on dash, o tears on the seats, o leaks, lways garage kept. VERY few ‘89 Turbos remain that are in this condition. I am the third owner of this car. I use it for long trips between Houston and Dallas. It is very reliable; it consistently gets about 25 miles per gallon on Texas highways, nd all the accessories function. Where most 89 Turbos are converted into race cars, his Porsche has no significant modifications. As is, t seems to have the perfect balance of power and handling performance for how I drive and I have been very happy with it. In 2003 the turbo bypass valve was failed, o it was replaced with a modern equivalent. Between 2005 and 2008 the previous owner replaced many of the detail components throughout the car to keep it looking new (floor mats, uttons, ials, oor seals, as cap, il cap, heel lugs, oolant reservoir, aster cylinder, tc.), have some of those record. In 2008 the air conditioning system was replaced with a modern R134 system. It cools ok during the Texas summers, ut I think it could use a recharge (The interior of the car is black so it heats up quickly through the rear glass). While the AC conversion was being performed, hey replace the engine mounts also. The original factory stereo head unit was replaced with a more modern version. I don’t know anything about stereos so all I can tell you is that the FM radio works. I have the original head unit also, ut the documentation seems to indicate that the CD player was not working when it was removed. Recommendations: In 2013 I was driving through Oklahoma City, o I stopped at the famous Dumont Porsche shop to have a complete inspection and maintenance performed. I had them replace the timing belt. I have driven it 2K miles since then, o I would recommend having the timing belt inspected for tension. The tires still LOOK new, ut they are at least 10 years old; it needs new tires, s you know 944s don’t have a real spare. The inflatable donut in the trunk is 25 years old (although it also looks brand new). The Die Hard battery still performs very well, ut it is also 10 years old and should be replaced. I keep it connected to a trickle charger while it’s in storage. The hood has a few of the standard 944 paint chips, bout 1mm or less in diameter. The previous owner had some of them refinished, ut they are still visible in the right lighting. He didn’t want to repaint the entire hood and run the risk of it not matching the rest of the car. I agree. They are not very noticeable. I know “it’s just a car”, ut it would be nice if it was purchased by a mature person who would continue to take care of it. NOTICE! I travel very much now and I only fly into Houston about every 10 days. The car is in a storage facility about 6 miles from the airport in Humble TX, o if you want to visit the car you must be willing to meet me there. I will try to answer questions to the best of my ability.I will assist as much as possible, ut the winner must make the shipping arrangements and pay all shipping costs.
