Hi
I’m considering adding a Porsche 944 to the stable and have decided one of the desirable features I’d like is the Pascha interior trim with the door cards indented with PORSCHE on them.

Does anyone know which years the (UK) 944 could be specified in this trim?

I’ve found one 1982 car specified as such in my search but I’m not keen on that particular example...

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

I think the Pasha is early 80s only, and you might find it on the 924 but I dont think it was a 944 option. Ill have a look tonight in the "original" book anc check

If you don't mind that would be helpful.

I'm particularly keen to know two things I suppose:
1) when the Pasha trim was available, to and from
2) when the PORSCHE indented door cards were available, to and from
3) whether the door cards were an option or simply the only option in certain model years.

Thanks in advance!!

It lools like you could get it up to 1985.

Thanks for that. That’s encouraging the Pasha was still available in ‘85!

Yes the book seems to say the Pasha was stopped when the dashboard was updated. So a 944 with the early dash (ie the 924dash) had it as an option.

Thanks for that info - that's helpful.

Do we know anything about the PORSCHE stamped door cards?

The book says 81-83 the 924 had these, one of four diffeent door trims they used. I dont know if the 944 did the same or stuck with the same throughout. You might find you can fit 924 door cards to a 944. I dont know myself.

That’s a good point on the 924/944 retrofit. I’ve seen one car with them but only seen them on 924’s prior- maybe the seller swapped them out? They definitely suit the early cars though I think.

This advert for an 1985 Porsche 944 with Pasha interior looks like it has Pasha seats but leather door cards.

This is a Porsche 928 interior with the Pasha doorcards with Porsche logo on the window sills.

Thats the ideal spec (for me) although I much prefer the later 928 style steering wheel but that should be an easy retro fit?

This is the one I've seen with the Pasha trim and PORSCHE door cards/tops.

Just can't stomach a white one...

Interestingly it only has part Pasha rear seats...

That's actually a 944. Here's a 928

Here's my 84 944.
Totally standard ( apart from the phone wink ) I prefer the door cards in black (personally)

I think my ideal would have the Pascha door card insets too (probably)...

So are we saying Pascha seats were an early car option and it could be specified with either plain door card inserts or with Pascha and the PORSCHE indented door card tops were a separate option too?

Here’s a copy of my invoice from January 1985 for a Guards Red 944 Lux, that although the trim was black and white pinstripe it had Porsche embossed top door cards which I did not specify, so must assume they were standard for the 1985 MY.
Sadly the 944 is long gone, but I have a 1980 924 CGT that has embossed top cards and a 1983 MY 924 Lux that has smooth black door cards and tops.
It appears that I paid £65 for matching pinstripe door panel inserts...options seem so cheap by today’s standards!!! I found the invoice and first tax disc in a drawer, so vainly framed them as a workshop record of my first new Porsche!!

Brilliant stuff Dave!

My 944 (an ‘89 2.7) has ivory velour seats. I haven’t seen another one - they either seem to be ivory leather or other, darker colours (there’s the burgundy variant). I’ve never seen the door cards with the Porsche script before ...

A mate of mine had an ‘83/84 944 with the Pasha interior a few years ago and he loved it. I’ll ask him if it had the door cards or standard black ones.

That’s super helpful thanks.

There are two ‘82 cars on eBay at the minute that both have them and an A reg ‘84 that doesn’t. Hhmmmmm.

£65 for matching cards -fabulous!!
