1984 Porsche 944 rust-free, 5-speed, manual. It has covered, roughly, 174k miles. The recent acquisition of a Panamera, another dream car of mine, has reluctantly forced the sale of my beloved 944.
Car runs great, idles smoothly, and does not overheat (aux fans come on right when they should, to keep the car cool). Air conditioning is ice cold, as well, as I just had the ac compressor and drier replaced and recharged.
Fresh tune up including air filter, spark plugs, all belts and wires were preformed with OEM parts. The DME relay, which is prone to failure on a drive, has been replaced with a solid state DME relay.
A lot of preventative maintenance and repairs have been preformed by my certified, Porsche independent. I also have service records dating back to the late 80s, and have recently spent more than 10k getting the car mechanically sorted.
The whole cooling system, including the water pump, thermostat, radiator and hoses were recently replaced. Of course the timing belt and balance belt has also been replaced and rechecked for tension within OEM spec.
The transmission shifts smoothly, and the clutch feels good. This is probably on account of having installed the Only944 short shifter, and the Only944 linkage arm.
The car hasn't been driven in the winter, and having come from a warm climate, there is no rust at all!
(watch the video in the link, below).
It comes equipped with Porsche sport seats, with no tears in the leather. There is, however, slight wear on the driver’s side seat piping. Bolster looks great. In the condition these seats are in.
The paint is in good condition, but it has its share of road chips and a couple of areas with clear coat issues.
Suspension feels very nice and the car handles like its on rails, since I replaced the original Koni's on the car with new ones. It also has 50/50 weight distribution and is tons of fun in the corners.
