Description:

1985 Porsche 944 RENEGADE HYBRID

THE OVERVIEW
Offered for an appreciating new owner at NO RESERVE is my custom classic 1985 Porsche 944 coupewith Renegade Hybrids conversion!
Finished in factory original color Rubinrot metallic over light tan leather, this 99.9% rust-free "Porschevette" is certainly NOT your basic 944 or even a 944 turbo! Nearly $20,000 later, after a conversion by Renegade Hybrids of Las Vegas to a Chevrolet Corvette 5.7 liter 350 cubic inch LT1 V8 engine with 300 horsepower and 340 foot pounds of torque, this 35 year-old Porsche has been transformed into a true sleeper! It sports the cool removeable hardtop, electric windows and reclining leather seats. A few of the DRIVELINE HIGHLIGHTS include a 10.4:1 compression, 1.5" rockers, 24 lb injectors, oem OBll computer harness, LT1 camshaft, 205/207 duration @ 50*, .447/.459 lift and 117 Lobe separation angle, MSD ignition, cold air intake, Shorty ceramic coated headers, Magnaflow exhaust, Porsche OEM 5 speed manual transmission with Renegade LT1 to Porsche transmission bell housing, Porsche oem transaxle, Ron Davis radiator and more. THE SUSPENSION AND OTHER PARTS include H&R lowering springs,Wildwood four-piston brake calipers, stainless steel brake lines, 17" oem Porsche Cup wheels with very good Pirelli rubber, 944 Turbo rear valance, Autogage tachometer and more! The recently stopped odometer showsjust over 23k miles but the true mileage is unknown ["TMU"].
It is being sold with clear and clean California title in my name. RELISTED AT NO RESERVE, this is a fabulous find, for about the cost of THE SALES TAX ALONE ON A NEW base Boxster!

THE BODY AND TRIM
This exterior of this 1985 Porsche is in fair to good rust-free condition overall with a decent overall shine to the paint finish.It is far from a perfect concourse show-quality car but more of a cool, Sunday morning "cars and coffee" driver-quality hot rod.The lights pop up but the bulbs are currently not lighting, there is also a bit of curb rash on the 17" cup wheels.The body has many nicks, scratches, faded and touched up spots. I would call it a presentable ten-footer with a great presence!


THE INTERIOR
As I hope is articulated in the photos, the interior of 944 is in fair/mediocre condition overall. The dash lights work as does the horn and blinkers, the driver side window works, the gauges light up. The odometer, temp gauge, passenger side window and A/C are not working, there are dash cracks under the carpet cover, worn upholstery with a patch on the driver side panel, missing radio face plate and other wear spots. Overall it is still a comfortable cockpit to pilot this German American rocket!

THE DRIVING EXPERIENCE
This 1985 starts easily with excellent running LT1 engine with excellent instant power delivery, smooth shifting transmission along with light responsive steering and solid suspension.As noted in the video the brake pedal is somehow lacking hydraulic boost, there is an annoying rattle inside the passenger side door. This is one cool sleeper that still that gleans much attention from fellow motorists...especially when you put your foot into the throttle!
