1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S Silver Rose

509

In the not-particularly rarefied world of 944 Turbos, you can usually find a nice example for sale just about any day of the week. While not imported in overwhelming numbers, there seem to be more good condition 944 Turbos up for sale at any given point than E30 M3s, 190E 16Vs, E28 M5s, E24 M6s, and Audi Quattros – combined. That’s because for as much of a performance bargain as the 944 Turbo is today, in the 1980s it was even moreso; a giant slayer that was cheaper than most of the direct competition. That led to many being sold and consequently, today there are many nice ones available in just about your choice of color for under $15,000. But if you’re a collector, there are two turbos that stand apart from the crowd; the unobtanium Turbo Cup factory race cars, and the 1988 Silver Rose edition Turbo S. Today there is a lower mile Turbo S just waiting for your deposit on Ebay:

Super clean and only 43874 miles with rare silver pink metallic paint only 1000 finished in this color you won’t find a nicer 944 turbo s out there it speaks for itself call with any questions 914-218-0053 thanks for looking

Yes, it’s slightly pink. Yes, the interior is pretty darn polarizing. But in terms of value, there aren’t any streetable 944 Turbos that are worth more than these. 1988 saw a host of improvements to the Turbo, including more power and the M030 suspension standard, along with new anodized wheels. This car appears to be all original and with under 50,000 miles, they don’t come much fresher than this. Though not much maintenance history is described, this car appears to be well cared for and in completely unmolested original form. That’s fairly rare for any Turbo 25 years on. $20,000 may seem like a lot of coin for a 944 Turbo, and indeed you could probably get two 1986s for the same amount. But consider what a collector status E30 M3 would cost, and this car is an absolute steal. The Silver Rose may not be for everyone, but if you’re looking for a collector grade 944 Turbo that can still be driven occasionally, here it is.

  1. Looks like a pretty car. Interior is not exactly my taste. I’m probably only going to have 1 Porsche in my life. So far, I’m pretty sure it’s going to be a 911 3.2. Either that or one new 911. But for short money, this looks like a nice car. Just not sure it’s the once-in-a-lifetime car.
