1987 Porsche 944 Turbo

Let’s say that instead of just hoping that some day your car will be worth a mint, or indeed even caring what other people think about your vehicular choices, you just want have a car which looks good and is enjoyable to drive. Let’s not forget, this advice is coming from someone with somewhat polarizing vehicle choices…so, take the advice with a grain of salt, but I’m going to persist in my argument that the 944 Turbo is the car for you. A true David of the 1980s, the 944 Turbo was the understated and unassuming Goliath slayer, turned down by the factory so as not to have its performance overshadow the 911 range. Being faster than a 911 is pretty much verboten in Germany and especially in Stuttgart, but nearly everyone that experienced a 944 Turbo in the 1980s came away with the impression that in every statistical (and in some non-statistical ways) it was a better car than the Carrera.

But, as our astute readership has previously noted, certain cars – the Audi Quattro, the BMW M3 and M5, and of course the 911 range – were the cars groups of individuals dream of. The 944 Turbo really wasn’t. There weren’t many people that hung 944 Turbo posters on their walls, because there was always something from Porsche that was a little bit more special – the 928 was more futuristic, the 911 was more comforting as a predictable classic, and “Turbo” was synonymous with only one Porsche in history.

That model wasn’t the 944, nor was it the 924. And though both of those respective cars outperformed their brethren in period and were very impressive outside of the Zuffenhausen lineup, the market of today in many ways continues to mimic the original sales trends. The 944 Turbo outsold the Quattro, outsold the M3 – neither, it should be noted, limited production cars. But today, probably in part because of its success, the 944 Turbo just doesn’t get the wows, the attention, or the press of its contemporaries. Of course, there’s one more thing it doesn’t get as a result – their price:

1987 saw some minor changes to the fantastic forced-induction 944 Turbo; most notable was the addition of ABS, which meant no more Fuchs. Instead, higher offset ‘Phone Dials’ were added, with an option for the forged ‘Gullideckel’ polished wheels. So this 944 grabbed my eye mostly because of the color. Alpine White isn’t all that rare but looks great on the 944 Turbo, and with the color-matched phone dials I immediately thought it looked a lot like a Cup car, which isn’t a bad thing. Throw in the burgundy leather, and it’s a really neat package. Unfortunately, that burgundy leather…well, let’s say it’s seen better days. The steering wheel and shift knob have been re-wrapped with a non-matching color that looks more mulberry than the standard leather, which also no longer matches (at least up front) probably due to age and sun exposure. The result is that this one looks a bit mis-matched inside. Mileage is lower though 944 odometers, or really Porsche odometers in the 80s in total, aren’t the most reliable things out there. Pricing is around par for an average, but not exceptional, 944 Turbo today. If you like the color combination and a PPI checks out, you could do a lot worse – and this money doesn’t get you into an equal condition Quattro, M3, M5, or 911.

  1. Having owned most of the 944s contemporaries you mentioned, think wide or boxed fenders, I can say that the 944T has as good or a better driving experience than any of the others.
    Being the only turbo car besides the UrQ, it is also the easiest to mod for another 10-20% more power.
    To accomodate the transaxle, the passengers sit at or below the drivetrain and the handling reflects that and perfect weight distribution. Toss in the S model’s suspension and brake mods and it was clearly s “better” by the numbers car than the 911. A comparison drive would have most saying it vfc was an overall better sportscar as well.
    This one looks great and if the mechanical condition checks out, should bring the lions share of the asking price.

    I could swap in the burgandy rim from my 89 S4 and could be pretty happy!

  2. box flairs and cocaine white paint? I love the 80s!

  3. myGTI, just missing the lipstick red interior!

  4. It always worries me when an old car like this has so much shiny dressing all over the engine bay. I’d rather see what’s leaking rather than amour all dripping off everything.
