A multiple Porsche Club GB Concours winning 944 Turbo S with 47,189 miles.
Initially there were 1000 Porsche 944 Turbo S cars introduced in 1988 and all built in the Silberrosa or Silver Rose metallic paint of which just 77 cars were sold in the UK. Following the initial run of Silver Rose cars customers were offered the choice of interior and exterior colours for their Turbo S and a subsequent 635 cars were made. Improvements included the M44/52 engine (with a new turbocharger, modified turbine vanes, larger exhaust valves and enhanced DME mapping), a stronger clutch, transmission with an oil cooler and limited slip differential, plus larger 12" front disc brakes (similar to the 928 S4), adjustable Koni suspension (via the M030 option package) and special 'Club Sport' alloy wheels. At £41,249 when new is was more expensive than the 911 Club Sport.
Zinc galvanised steel body, integral front air dam, rear spoiler, Rear under-lip spoiler, pop-up halogen headlamps, headlamp cleaning system, securiflex windscreen, 8-way electrically adjustable seats, electric hatch release, power windows, digital quartz clock, boost pressure gauge, air conditioning, Panasonic cassette player.
The muscular lines of this sought-after variant still look amazing today finished in Guards Red, (Code L3MA). The unique Turbo decal on the offside front wing is ostentatious and acts as a reminder of the original homologation Porsche 924 Carrera GT Turbo and the exclusivity this car enjoys. Subject to a documented windows out repaint by the fastidious previous owner whose ambitions were to compete in Concours, the finish can be described as stunning, with noteworthy awards in this class acting as a testament to the appearance. All trim, rubbers, glass and lenses are perfect with a slight ding to the bonnet front centre. Truly outstanding.
Finished in the optional Black Leatherette material, (Code LT), the orthopedically designed sports seats are pristine along with the rest of the gorgeous interior. The sense of occasion is maintained once settled in the commanding cockpit with a wealth of working crystal clear instrumentation such as boost pressure gauge. There are no cracks to the dash and the carpets are spotlessly clean having been protected by genuine Porsche carpet mats. The car comes complete with its original space saver wheel, full tool kit (unused), aluminium brace, jack and the often missing tyre compressor! The boot option sticker remains attached. The perfect blend of comfort and performance.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 944 Turbo S four cylinder inline M44/52 engine produces 250bhp at 6000rpm to propel this car to 62mph in 5.7 seconds and a top speed of 162mph. This more powerful engine is developed from the specification used in the Porsche 944 Turbo Cup race series with factory enhancements such as a new turbocharger with modified turbine vanes, slightly larger exhaust valves and modified DME mapping. The engine area is detailed to virtual perfection and a free-flowing exhaust system is fitted. The modified transmission changes include hardening of 1st and 2nd gears and the transmission oil is externally cooled allowing precise and solid gear changes.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Special flat forged Club Sport alloy 16inch wheel design with an anodized surface and seven spokes are as new shod in correctly sized and premium Continental ContiSportContact tyres. One centre cap is slightly marked. Massive ventilated disc brakes from the 928 S4 as factory supplied combined with Bosch ABS system to provide quick, stable and fade free stops. There is a slight unobtrusive pulse on the brake pedal from high speeds.
Supplied new on the 1st October 1988 by Glen Henderson official Porsche Centre and registered to them as the first owner. A further three former keepers have enjoyed this low mileage example with servicing records from 1988 with 733 miles travelled right up until March 2016. The Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms the chassis and engine numbers conform to the specific ranges for these limited-run cars. A box full of trophies with PCGB Concours judging sheets is also included in the thick history file. To complete the appearance of this show-standard Porsche is the number plate A944 TBO
A complete set of keys, and all Porsche handbooks including the 944 Turbo S Supplement is included in the burgundy wallet. A very rare limited edition model and much sought-after by Porsche enthusiasts.

Good value for money. Same size engine as my Austin Healey but no comparison performance wise!
Excellent road holding.
Maybe a bit bland and a surprisingly big car. Much wider than the Healey. But, being a modern car, doesn't have to be pampered...won't rust to pieces for example.

This 944 is not a standard one by any stretch of the imagination. I bought this recently from a director of a specialist porsche garage. The car is a result of his obsession to create a subtle yet incredible 944. It is running at 330bhp with 395lb torque. Figures don't really do it justice though...

Having bought this car purely as a track toy I cannot comment on the comfort and gizmos - But so far it feels like a nicely balanced, moderately quick toy.
She's now been stripped down to the bare minimum, 2 x racing buckets, harnesses, GAZ shocks, Toyos, Sills repaired, Stickered up... Read the full summary
