1984 Porsche 944
This 1984 Porsche 944 is an Australian-delivered vehicle which has been well maintained by its current owner and presents a striking colour combination. Power is derived from a naturally-aspirated 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine. This powertrain outputs 120kW (161hp) which is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. The odometer of the vehicle currently shows 68,568km.
Sitting mid-level within Porsche’s line-up is the 944. Where the famous Porsche 911 is nimble and features a smaller footprint, the 944 is more of a grand tourer-leaning sports car and stocks a long bonnet, front-engine power, and a comfortable freeway manner. Where the previous Porsche 924 paved the way for this type of front engine, rear-wheel drive Porsche, the 944 updated and improved the formula with more power and better weight distribution. The Porsche 944 was available in various spec levels but the standard 944 is most common. Until the Boxster and Cayman were introduced, the Porsche 944 was the most successful Porsche ever made. It has often been used in motorsport, with Australian examples used frequently in targa-style road-based events.
Painted in the classic Porsche hue of Guards Red with a black-upholstered leather interior, this Porsche 944 turns heads even today, some 40 years after it was manufactured. The car has not received any notable aftermarket modification since new (aside from a Clarion head unit) and it retains the original delivery specification. It rides on a set of black 15-inch “cookie cutter” wheels with silver outer rims, which come wrapped in Yokohama tyres.
This vehicle was built in March 1984 by Porsche in Stuttgart, Germany and delivered to its Western Australian first owner by Autohaus Porsche. The current owner has held the vehicle the last eight years in which it has received periodic care as dictated by the service schedule. The last maintenance was completed in December 2022, where the engine oil was replaced, filter changed, and the transaxle oil was changed. The vehicle is described as “turn key” by its owner.
The exterior condition is in impressive order for a car of its age and mileage. The Guards Red paintwork displays no obvious marks or imperfections, and no signs of scratching are seen. The car could benefit from a detail to remove some fine swirl mark scratches and bring back some shine. The rear rubber spoiler shows some light degradation with age, though this is a common 944 issue. All four wheels display in good order without noticeable kerb rash.
Inside the cabin this car displays in nice order. The seats have been retrimmed with new Porsche factory leather according to the owner. This fabric pulls tight over the original seat frames and shows no sign of sagging or crease marks. Some light wear and tear is seen around the gear shifter, while the centre console controls display some fair scratching. Though, nothing overtly alarming for a car of its age. The carpeting and headlining both show in great, unstained condition.
