This is a 1986 944 Turbo with 137k miles. It is in very good condition for the mileage. The car runs and drives very well and starts right up. There is plenty of power and the transmission shifts great. The interior is in very good condition. I think that there may have even been some work done by a previous owner to replace worn interior parts. Seats and carpets look very good. The seats are Porsche script cloth with vinyl on the sides (I think that this is factory option). The tires are in good condition. The sun roof works great as do the electric windows. The lights work as they should. I’ve seen other nice cars with a cracked dash but this dash is very clean as can be seen in the photos. The A/C works as well.
The paint is in good condition but it’s not perfect. It was repainted at some point. There is a chip in the left from fender that can be seen in the photos, the front bumper has a few chips down low, and there is some fine cracking at the front of the roof. Regardless of all of that the paint overall is in great shape and shines nicely. It’s very presentable even with these blemishes. I didn’t find that the paint is worth fixing since the car in-general looks very good already. I have looked all over the car and could not find any rust at all. Even underneath the car I found no rust.
The car had a leak when I bought it but I replaced the main seal and I haven’t noticed a leak ever since. It may have a small drip every so often but I haven’t noticed anything leaking after that fix.
Recently there was an issue with the clutch linkage so I had a new clutch installed. While we were we also put in the new main oil seal, replaced all of the torque-tube bearings (this is well-beyond what most would have done), replaced two of the CV joints, cleaned and re-greased all CV joints, replaced all CV joint boots, replaced rear brake pads, replaced the throw-out bearing, and replaced the throw out guide tube (this was the worn part). Not all of this was needed but since the clutch was out I thought it best to do all of the service.
Things that need to be fixed are the mirrors don’t move electrically, the clock doesn’t work, and the hood doesn’t stay up. The radio works just okay but could use an updating. If I were to keep the car long-term then I’d have the timing belt replaced. There is no indication that it’s bad but I know that timing belts are always a good thing to replace even if you don’t drive the car very much.
The odometer states 136,500 miles but when I took the car out I saw that the odometer didn’t work. The speedometer and all other gauges work fine. The car is still titled as an “A” for actual miles so this isn’t a case where the odometer has been broken for a long time. I’d fix it if I were keeping it. I’ve owned the car a couple of years and I’m selling it because I haven’t driven this car very much. It’s one of several classics that I own and I just have too many cars. This car, and all my cars, are kept in an enclosed garage.
