The 944 was an evolutionary development of the super successful 924 that transformed a recession-hit Porsche sales during the late 1970s. The 924's main driving asset was its well balanced handling and this transferred to the 944. What the 924 needed - badly - was more power and this came with the 944's new, all aluminium, 2.5-litre 4-cylinder engine. 2.5-litres is big for a 4 cylinder, but clever balance shafts either side of the crankcase gave the overhead camshaft engine a silky smoothness. The interior came from the Gen 2 924 Turbo and the appearance, perhaps the 944's greatest attraction, was an aggressive makeover in the style of the limited edition 924 Carrera GT. The bottom line was a thoroughbred Porsche that was easy to drive around town, yet had agile overtaking and cruising ability combined with interior refinement. A new 5-speed gearbox gave the model long legs for easy cruising (a 3-speed auto was also available but rarely chosen). Another asset inherited from the 924 was the staggering versatility of its design. The opening tailgate brought unheard of practicality to owning a Porsche. With the rear seats folded flat, this was a car into which you could get most medium sized domestic appliances!

This superb Porsche 944 Lux is finished in Guards red with a pinstripe cloth/vinyl interior. It is fitted with the following options taken from it's original sticker:

  • 15" Teledial alloy wheels

  • Passenger door mirror (261)

  • Anti roll bars front and rear (404)

  • Top tinted windscreen (567)

  • Electric windows (651)

  • Power steering (657)

Over the years that we have stored the car we have carried out minor oil changes and we will complete an oil and brake fluid service at point of sale. The car has it's original and complete book pack and a full set of keys and is ready to enjoy or show. As far as we are aware the paint is all original and it is as it left the factory. It has all of the previous MoT test certificates to back up it's mileage but the condition shows this too!
