After 2 years of great ownership i'm selling my 1986 Porsche 944 Lux
Just MOT'd (18/7/17) and it passed with no advisories
179,000 miles
Comprehensive service history and original service books all filled out
Absolutely brilliant to drive whether used daily or as a weekend car.

Work/maintenance completed in the last 2 years:

New spring plate clutch
New meyle engine mounts
All the belts including timing and balance shaft.
Discs and pads all round
Performance ECU chip
Oil cooler seals
Stainless Dansk exhaust
GAZ GHA Coilover suspension (which can go from very soft to very firm)
Borbet Cup 2 wheels refurbished with new Uniroyal Rainsport 3 Tyres (all 6-7mm tread)
Oil change done 3 times with genuine porsche filters always used
Fuel and air filters
Brake and clutch fluid
New brake master cylinder
New coolant and transaxle oil
Front anti roll bar bushes (for the larger 23mm anti roll bar) It also has a 14mm rear anti roll bar.
Front ARB stiffener brackets
New hatch and sunroof seal
Momo steering wheel boss and Momo Mod7 steering wheel
Odometer gear replaced and gauges overhauled
Shift linkage overhauled and modified for tighter shifting.
'RS' door cards

All work completed by me unless otherwise stated on a receipt in the service history folder. I'm sure there are other things that i've forgotten about. It has wanted for nothing. There are receipts for everything in the folder. I have many original bits to go with the car such as a black sunroof trim, original perfect condition steering wheel as well as other spares I have amassed.

The car has been Dyno'd (purely as a health check) at 165hp at the crank and 123hp at the wheels. These are pretty much standard figures for a 944 in 1986 so the engine is incredibly healthy.

The most recent major bit of work completed was a full front end respray. I had all of the unsightly plastic from the front end removed and smoothed it over before the respray and also had painted and fitted and 944 Turbo rear valance. During the front end overhaul EVERY nut and bolt was replaced with stainless. I have all the all of the usable original bits that I removed to be included in the sale.

During the last few years of the previous owners stint with the car it had:

Full black leather interior
Inner and outer sills replaced
Complete respray in Mitsubishi Medium Blue Pearl Metallic (which it is now)


Problems with the car? I'm happy to be open and honest:

Boot release button works but doesnt 'return' automatically. I use the key
I've converted the sunroof to manual latches out of preference, so the sunroof buttons dont do anything.
There are a couple of blebs along the drivers sill and some towards the back of the passengers side which were microblisters due to having a cover over the car for 2 winters. Both sills are solid inside and out however, just thought I should mention.
One of the wheels has some lacquer peel from a couple of stone chips.


Overall this 944 is fantastic. Everyone who sees it comments on how nice it is and how lovely the colour is, especially with the respray. I have done around 7,000 miles in 2 years and she hasn't missed a beat. I'd drive it anywhere and it performs brilliantly. The coilover suspension set at the softest is very comfortable, and can be stiffened up if so desired.

I will truly regret selling this car as i've spent a fortune and lots of my time tinkering and fiddling to get it how it is, but needs must. I just hope whoever buys it treats it like I have!

I'm after £4500 ONO. Im in Aberdeen but have no issue picking someone up from the airport or train station. You could quite happily drive this down to Cornwall if you wanted to. It returns around 35mpg on a run and a tank will last 450 or so miles at that.
