Vehicle Description

1984 Porsche 944

In model year 1982, a fourth Porsche model line came onto the market. The 944 bridged the price and performance gap between the 924 and the 911 SC. Although the body of the 944 was based on the 924, it had considerably more striking contours. The 944 also featured a 2.5-litre in-line four-cylinder engine developed by Porsche. Unlike the 924, the 944 was viewed as a "true" Porsche in the eyes of customers. This transaxle model was also produced by Audi in Neckarsulm.

For consignment, the front engine version venture of the Porsche 944. This car is sporting a respray of the original Garnet Red with a sporty tan leather interior. Well-kept and the beneficiary of a new timing belt and water pump we proudly offer to you on consignment this ready to rock and roll 944 right out of 1984.

Exterior
Darker than Guards Red, bordering on maroon, the Garnet Red Accentuates the sculpted muscular lines of the 944. All surfaces are deep and shiny, and paint is original. The red covers most surfaces of this car handout sports some black accenting for the rubber bumper guards, window trimmings and rear spoiler. On the back we note flush mounted wrap around segmented taillights that incorporate the tail lights, reverse and signal markers. The gaps are well minded, and 15-inch Porsche Turbo Fuchs wheels with polished lips are on all 4 corners.

Interior
Tan leather greets us on the door panels and is accentuated with a chocolate brown upper molded plastic, and a carpeted (tan) lower. Nice high back buckets are in front, and show with integrated headrests, tuck and roll inserts and smooth bolsters with power controls for the seats. In back some tight but comfortable 2 plus 2 buckets which form a bench stretches across to the B pillars. These seats present very well with minimal wear on the buckets but loose material on the rear 2 plus 2 has caused some very notable wrinkling. An integrated armrest and headrest melts into a center console at the carpeted hump, which races forward to the dash. This presents in chocolate brown with tan carpeting. The rounded design original dash is in black and houses all the essential gauges, air controls and Blaupunkt AM/FM/Cassette stereo. A Blaupunkt remote EQ is also on, mounted high up on the passenger's side. Tan carpeting is on all floors, and Porsche embroidered floor mats in carpet protect the carpeting.

Drivetrain
Under the hood a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder power plant is tucked inside a clean engine bay. This is fed by EFI and has a 5-speed manual transmission with a 3.889 ratio rear axle. All is looking sporty under this front engined 944.

Undercarriage
Showing in patina, and slight surface rust, the construction remains solid with just some road dirt accumulation from over the miles. Mostly simple designed aero ground effects panels we can note independent coil springs upfront, and independent diagonal arm one torsion bar per side rear suspension. Power disc brakes are on all 4 corners.

Drive-Ability
A quick starter, and good driver with a comfortable RPM cruise, some snappy acceleration, and smooth shifting. Braking was bias free on the panic stop test.

Porschephiles may pooh pooh the water-cooled front engine variants, but these sporty cars never last long on our showroom floors here at Classic Auto Mall. Nice original condition, smooth driver and sporty runner. Steigen Sie in die Riege der Elite ein, werden Sie Porsche-Besitzer!
