Euro Spec 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo For Sale

Wow, there’s not much not to like on this great looking car. Low miles, gray over tan, beautiful upgrade rims, and rare European specification import make this car highly desirable to the Porsche 951 enthusiast. Here’s a 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo For Sale on eBaymotors:

quote from seller’s eBaymotors listing:

You are bidding on a RARE and UNIQUE 944 Turbo (aka 951). I have owned a number of 951’s over the years, but this one is by far the most unique. This CarFax certified 951 has low mileage (63,239), comes in the rare color combination of Graphite Metallic over Light Grey and has a binder of receipts. If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind 951 with pedigree, read on!!!

This 951 has only had 2 owners. The first owner was a physician who purchased the car in Europe and brought it to the United States. The VIN is WP0ZZZ95ZGN101375. This car is 1 of only 2,760 944 Turbos produced for the rest of the world (ROW) in 1986!!! By comparison, there were about 3 times as many US spec 944 Turbos produced in 1986. The European versions had the highly desirable streamlined rear bumper and front fenders with marker lights in them (see photos). The most interesting feature on this car is the instrument cluster. The warning lights are written in German!!!

This car comes with the original European Delivery documents which consist of a Porsche Touring Pass and another book which appears to be a travel guide and is written entirely in German. I have included a photo of both of these items in their original plastic case. They are in pristine condition. The car also comes with the original First Aid kit (never used) which is also written in German.

This car was specially ordered from the factory with a single sport seat which is confirmed by a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. The car has the following option codes: C00 (Eurospec emissions), M74 (touring package), 197 (heavy duty alternator and higher amperage battery), 261 (passenger mirror – electric, heated and adjustable), 418 (protective side moldings), 431 (4 spoke leather sport steering wheel), 533 (alarm system), 573 (air conditioning) and 650 (removable sunroof).

This 951 was well maintained and comes with the original books, including the stamped service book, and a binder of receipts. All of the important maintenance and updates have been performed and documented.

There’s a little wear detailed in the ad, but none of which detracts that much from what, in my mind, is a really cool and rare example. I’ll update after the auction ends. 3 days to go and currently reserve not met at $6100.
