1987 Porsche 944 Turbo

The last few transaxles I’ve looked at have been a bit eclectic; the 944S was a well priced, good looking driver candidate, but the Turbo S and 924S were both high dollar, ultra-low mileage examples. Is there still a mid-ground? Absolutely, because if you’re willing to look just north of the asking price of many of the normally aspirated models from the 1980s, you can look at the lovely and high performance version of the breed, the 944 Turbo. Introduced in 1986 and upgraded virtually every year, each Turbo model has impressive driving dynamics, are capable of triple digit cruising and are capable and reasonable reliable exotics. Today’s example is presented in more rare to find Nougat Brown with brown Porsche Script interior:

Thanks to fresh paint, the presentation is great and the look is classic with the Phone Dials. While I love the ’86 models with the optional Fuchs, there’s no denying that this car looks purposeful in this rare-to-find tone. Perhaps there is a reason for that; when new, I doubt it would have been the color pallet I would have selected. But today it really strikes me as a cool combination because it is just not often seen. 87s received the anti-lock brake option that changed the wheel offset, along with some minor changes like a 180 m.p.h. speedometer. Maintenance is claimed to be up to date and overall presentation is great with lower mileage for the year; despite this, bidding has been languishing under $10,000. I feel like I often say “you can’t get more car for that amount”, but it’s really appropriate here; depending on where the reserve lies, this could be a bargain classic.
