1986 Porsche 944 Turbo

Last week I wrote up a spectacular looking Guards Red 1986 944 Turbo which drew a fair amount of interest from all of you, but gained little notice on eBay and failed to sell. Today we have another 1986 944 Turbo of a slightly different flavor; one of the triple white models. Like the red car, these models remain a very easy entry into classic high performance German motoring. Great build quality and longevity, fantastic driving experience and sedate but aggressive looks are all hallmarks of this model which remains undervalued compared to its contemporaries. If you missed out on the last one, here’s another opportunity to jump in to classic Porsche ownership on the bottom floor:

Compared to the Guards Red 1986 944 Turbo I wrote up last week, this car looks to be as nice but has more miles and a higher asking price. The red car also had recent expensive maintenance taken care of and a fully documented history. Despite that it failed to sell with a high bid of $12,000. Hard to believe, considering what its contemporaries are demanding in price these days, but the market speaks. I do like the triple white look of this car, but the dealer/questionable maintenance aspect on one of these worries me a bit. However, the white heavy-bolstered sport seats show little signs of wear, as does the car overall, perhaps pointing towards careful previous ownership. Being a dealer, you can be sure the asking price is on the higher side and even though I prefer the white on this car, I think overall the red car would have been a smarter buy for the long term. Still though, this car is a good value even if it is priced a few thousand dollars on the high side. All you have to do is think about the condition E30 M3 this money would buy and you really can start to appreciate how much more value for your money the 944 Turbo is right now. Simply put, there is no better bang for your buck in German motoring!
