Even though you’ll always get the “why didn’t you buy a 911″ look from people, I’ve always been a fan of the Porsche 944 as a stand alone entity. Sure, it isn’t quite as iconic as its rear-engined sibling, but this was one of the best handling cars to hit the pavement and they are a relative bargain on the used market today. The Turbo S debuted in 1988 with the M44/52 engine with 250 horsepower, Koni adjustable shock absorbers, harder bushings and larger diameter anti-roll bars. Larger front brakes from the 928S4 were also fitted and ABS was standard. This Turbo S for sale in Georgia has 67,000 miles on the clock and comes equipped with what could best be described as a very ’80s themed interior.

I am a long time PCA member and have owned a 356B, 911′s, 928S4, 930′s, 944 Turbos, and a 996 GT2. I am a connoisseur of unique automobiles and I personally buy and sell 5-10 cars per year (hence the dealer’s license). I fully disclose every known detail about my cars so that there are never any surprises. I have exported several automobiles and I will gladly assist overseas buyers.
The last 944 Turbo S we featured had 35,000 miles and sold for $21,000. With almost double the mileage, can this car bring $20,000? Maybe $17,000 to $18,000 would be more realistic. But there might be someone out there looking for the best 944 they can find, and given that this car was owned by a Porsche enthusiast and PCA member certainly has its merits. Personally, this color combination isn’t my favorite, but the 944 is one of those bucket list cars for me. A Turbo S in this kind of condition would certainly be high on my shopping list when the time came.
