I've owned my 944 for 3 years and over that time completed a full strip down restoration originally to replace fuel lines but became far more extensive! I'm based in Rainham Kent.

Porsche 944 Lux, oval dash 2.5 litre engine, 5 speed manual, registered 30 June 1986 with 187000 miles so under 6k per year. Most of this mileage was done by a PCGB member who owned the car for 20 years and took the mileage from 48k to 176k between 1991 and 2011. Depending on your age, insurance for a classic car like this can be incredibly cheap - for me it cost £75 this year.

I'm looking for £6495 but happy to chat once you've seen the car. All the reaction to the car at shows has been fantastic so it has to be seen to appreciate. Unlike many cars there is no cracking on the dash and newly retrimmed seats so no wear on those.

I’ve owned this since 2016 and carried out a major restoration project in that time. The car has done under 1000 miles since recommissioning with new MOT in 2017 and has only been used in the dry since then and is garage stored. The quantity and quality of parts replaced is shown by the last 2 MOTs with zero advisories.

Current MOT to 9th September 2019

Two massive history ring binder files of Service History with receipts for work done over the last 30 years and huge pile of receipts for parts and work I have done since owning the car which totals well over £8000. I have DVLA ownership history showing all owners of the car with copies of V5 transfers and purchase receipts dating back to 1989 when it was sold at 3 years old for £19000.
This is possibly one of the most sorted Porsche 944 cars out there. Since I’ve owned the car it has been subject to a full underbody strip down and rebuild with sills replaced and the whole car then resprayed in the original guards (India) red with glass out.

The front seats have been re-trimmed in black with soft perforated leather centres and leather effect outer panels and black rear leather seats
