Description

Guide price: £25000 - £30000. •A UK-supplied right-hand drive car in Guards Red with light grey leather•Supplied with a UK V5c and an MoT until 8th February 2019•Close to £40,000 worth of expenditure in restorative works• Supplied with its book pack and history file In 1989, the second series of the 944 was introduced, powered by a 210 bhp normally aspirated, double-overhead-cam, 16-valve, 3.0-litre version of the 944S engine, which was the largest four-cylinder engine in production at the time. The 944 S2 also benefited from a revised transmission and the gearing was tweaked to better suit the torque and peak power characteristics of the 3.0 L M44/41 powerplant. The S2 had the same rounded nose and rear valance found on the 944 Turbo model and this was the first example of the use of an integrated front bumper, where the bumper and bonnet profiles would merge smoothly, a design feature that was adopted widely on production cars from the mid-nineties.Offered here is a UK-supplied right-hand drive 944 Turbo, registered to its first owner on 30th May 1990. It is finished in perhaps the most appealing colours of Guards Red with a light grey leather interior and carpets. Our vendor is no stranger to restoring Porsches to a superb level and this car has been the lucky recipient of some extensive works. The engine was removed and rebuilt, the car has had a bare-metal respray in its original colours and the seats have been retrimmed by one of best in the business at Classic FX Porsche. Works have totalled almost £40,000 and this matching numbers example has only covered 700 miles since completion. Supplied with a UK V5c and MoT tested until February 2019, our vendor is selling this beauty to fund another Porsche project. Rarely do cars of this quality come to market and we urge you to view it in person.
