VERY CLEAN 1 OWNER CAR, RUNS GREAT, COLD A/C, PROFESSIONAL REPAINT, LOADED!
The Porsche 944 is quite possibly the biggest bang for the buck in sports cars, and this ultra-clean 1986 944 has a lot going for it, not the least of which is its outrageously affordable price tag. With just one owner and a look that still turns heads, you probably can't have much more fun than this for so little cash.
Everyone has a red Porsche, which is why this Stone Gray 944 stands out in a crowd. The 944 represented a distinct change from the rear-engined, air-cooled 911, yet it still carries all the Porsche hallmarks: impressive performance, great build quality, and iconic looks. The wedge shape has aged well and thanks to Porsche's attention to detail, it still looks great. Thanks to excellent maintenance and perhaps a repaint at some point, it looks fantastic and people are still going to think you inherited some cash when you show up in this car. Body gaps are excellent, as is typical with these cars, and things like the urethane bumpers and deep front air dam are still in good shape. Details like the black bumper overriders, door handles, and rear spoiler are likewise in great condition, showing none of the usual issues that these cars get over time. There's no evidence that it's been raced or abused, and even the chin spoiler suggests that someone was always careful to avoid parking curbs and steep driveways. 30-year-old cars NEVER look this good!
The awesome oxblood leather interior has an inviting, almost artistic look that's a hallmark of Porsche design. If it didn't make the car work better, they didn't bother, but there's no reason it can't be beautiful at the same time. As a result, you get supportive high-back bucket seats, well-positioned controls and arguably the best 5-speed shifter ever built. Big, clear gauges are easy to read at a glance, although in typical Porsche fashion, many of the secondary controls are kind of cryptic. No worries, though, because once you figure it out, you'll discover that the A/C still blows cold, the power windows go up and down, and the sunroof lets in plenty of light. The stereo is a decent-sounding Sony AM/FM/cassette head unit that's probably been there since this car was almost new. The back seat is reasonably sized for a Porsche, and you can always drop the seats to make the trunk area truly cavernous.
The 944's naturally aspirated 2.5 liter inline-four doesn't make big horsepower numbers, but it's plenty potent enough to make the lightweight 944 a ton of fun when the road starts to twist. This car isn't about sheer speed (although it's plenty quick), but rather the balance between acceleration, handling, and braking that make it one of the most consistently beloved cars of all time. The engine has been properly maintained, which is obviously critical on a Porsche, and if you do it right, it'll last almost forever. It's shockingly clean under the hood, but better still, it's fully functional, and the same is true underneath, where there are no nasty surprises awaiting you. Obviously it lived in a warm climate, because the bare aluminum and cadmium plated parts all remain bright and clean, not chalky with corrosion. Nice! The brakes remain powerful and confidence-inspiring and the handsome Porsche "phone dial" wheels carry 215/60/15 Nexen performance radials all around.
Great colors, a bulletproof drivetrain, and a clean bill of health, you can drive this 944 with confidence and nobody will ever guess how little you actually paid. Call today!
