1986 Porsche 944 TURBOUp for sale is my 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo street legal track toy. I am a 56 year old Porsche Club of America driving instructor and this car has been my toy for over 10 years. It is now time to sell as I am working on an early retirementgoal and the car simply does not fit in to this plan. I am the third owner - the original owner was a pilot who bought the car new in Idaho. He kept excellent maintenance records (included with sale). The second owner was friend of mine ( 50 year old pharmacist) who sold me the car with approx. 50 k miles on it. The car has been garaged its entire life and currently lives in my garage under a custom fit car cover. The car has always been owned by mature adults with the means to care for it. This car has been driven so please do not expect a showroom car or garage queen. It does have the minor scuffs and flaws you would expect of a car with 113k miles on it.The engine is 100% stock other than the addition of an auxiliary oil cooler.The suspension has been tastefully modified to enhance the cars performance on track days with the Porsche Club of America and similar organizations yet retains its suitability for street use.
details:-factory limited slip differential-fiberglass brake cooling ducts with fog light delete-5 point race harness-adjustable Koni shocks-400 lb front springs-adjustable front sway bar-synthetic oil during my ownership Mobil 1-roll bar-seat back brace-new clutch at 80k mikes-new timing belt and balance shaft belt and rollers at 100k-emergency battery shutoff switch-excellent street tires-Momo race seat and seat rails-track day wheels and tires-window net-original factory Guards Red paint job - - no dash cracks - leather seats in very good condition -no rips or tears. Overall interior condition very good.
a few issues:- crack in lower passenger side windshield. Car is exempt from Utah safety inspection so not an issue for me. Also not in my line of sight. A new windshield cost approx $275 locally installed.- has aftermarket cruise control - system works but needs final connection to throttle cable.-a/c system needs attention -compressor cycles on but does not blow as cold as it used to. Needs refrigerant top off . When at 100% it will blow very cold.- car has normal paint chips on front nose of car and normal flaws expected of an older car- again remember this is a 31 year old car. It is not perfect - It will require more ongoing attention than your new Honda.
I have not used the car for two years now. I start in a few times a year and drive it around the neighborhood. This car needs to be used! With the track suspension modifications it has a VERY hard ride on the street.WhenI was 45 years oldI did not mind. In myold age itisok for shorter trips but longer rides are hard. To restore most of the factory ride for street only use it would take about 4 hours of home garage time to swap out the springs for something closer to stock -this is a cheap and easy procedure.
