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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
