Additional pictures located at Pelican Parts forum: Additional Pictures Vehicle Information: Price: I'm looking at somewhere at $18,000. There was a similar Guards Red, 1987 Porsche 944 Turbo sold on eBay for $20,300 not too long ago with very similar mileage. (Look up item # 250837260376 on ebay). Miles: Currently has 31,500 actual miles (may go up a little due to possible test drives) Location: Detroit Metro, MI Engine: 2.5L 4 cylinder turbocharged engine Transmission: 5 speed manual Trim: Turbo model, fully loaded. Koni suspension, rear wiper, heated mirrors, power seats (both driver and passenger seats), climate control, removable sunroof, leather interior, oil pressure gauge, volt meter, coolant temperature gauge, boost gauge, power windows, courtesy interior and under hood light, etc.) Please do a quick search on the 1989 Porsche 944 Turbo specs and trim levels for the complete information. Observed MPG: I have actually gotten as high as 33 MPG before in this car driving conservatively during an all highway road trip. On average, however, I get around 25 MPG, which isn't bad at all for a car like this. Never been in any accidents from the best of my knowledge Title in hand Black Exterior Black Interior Never smoked in Never tracked Never seen the snow Rarely driven in the rain Always garage kept with a car cover Battery's charge has been maintained with a trickle charger Always started the car up to circulate fluids for at least half an hour, every two weeks in the winter Normal wear and tear is to be expected from a 22-year old, used vehicle. Only slightly noticeable blemishes will be covered in the description. I want to be honest as possible with my description even if it is a barely noticeable blemish. For those of you who know a thing or two about 944 Turbos (AKA 951), this is the equivalent to the 944 Turbo S model with the upgraded turbo, koni adjustable suspension (M030) front and rear, revised engine remapping, more powerful engine (M44/52), etc. The "S" designation badge was just dropped from Porsche in 1989 but rest assured that all of the 1989 Porsche 944 Turbos was the equivalent to the Turbo S models. 1989 was the last year the 944 (non-convertible) was built for the USA so this is the latest model. The 944 engine's have been known to last and are solid cars! About Me: My name is Scott. I am very detailed when it comes to my cars as you are about to tell based on the following description to come. I am pretty particular when it comes to maintaining and keeping this vehicle in the best condition as possible. Most of the work done to the car has been done by me and recorded with as much detail as possible. Just about all of my work done is always done down to torque specs as I know how important it is to follow it. I love this car especially for the reason that it is a very low mileage 951 in pristine condition. If anyone knows about this vehicle, they would know that it is rare especially for a Turbo model with this amount of miles on the odometer. With this being said, I consider myself a car enthusiast. I would not consider myself a master mechanic, however, I do know a decent amount in terms of mechanics. I possess a good understanding of mechanical concepts and do most of the basic mechanical work at home. I drive my cars fairly conservatively and never beat my cars to death. On rare occasions, I would do some "spirited driving" to see what this Porsche is made of. Of course that kind of defeats the purpose of owning a Porsche 944 Turbo if you don't have fun with it, which is one of the reasons why I am selling this vehicle as well. I never used this car to it's full potential. History of the Vehicle: This particular Porsche 944 Turbo has been in our family since the very beginning. I have received this vehicle in late spring of 2008 with approximately 26,400 miles. This car was passed down to me from my father whom he bought it brand new from a Porsche dealership in 1989. My dad has babied this car ever since then. When it was passed down to me, I have babied this car in his place. Shortly after receiving the 944 (951), I did the proper maintenance to ensure that it runs efficiently with no problems. Although my father did follow the proper maintenance schedules, I just did it myself to make sure that it is done properly since the car sat in the garage for most of it's life. This car has never seen the snow and rarely seen the rain. I have always ensured that the car was driven in good weather. This car was pretty much a weekend driver. With this being said, this 944 was never driven in the winter as Michigan winters can be pretty nasty. During the winter, the car has always been started up for at least half an hour about once every 2-3 weeks to get the fluids flowing and to ensure that the car runs properly. If you know cars, they don't like to sit for long periods. By starting the car up periodically, it just part of my routine maintenance procedure. Reason for Selling: I just got a motorcycle last year and I find myself riding my motorcycle more than the Porsche. It just does not make sense for me to keep my Porsche anymore as I rarely drive it at all. I also have another car as a daily driver. I am just running out of room and time to take care of the car so it makes more sense to let someone else enjoy the car. I do honestly want this car to go to a good home and hope it will be taken care of as well as enjoyed as much as I have with it. Please, no joy riders. The vehicle is currently not registered nor insured so test driving will be limited. Only when I sense that a buyer is serious about possibly purchasing the vehicle will I allow a test drive. Knowledge and experience with driving a manual transmission is a must obviously. Cash (partial), license and proof of insurance in hand to test drive, no exceptions. This is to only insure that the car is not abused by people who only want to take the vehicle for a joy ride. This is a rare car in mint condition so I expect that it is treated that way as well. I am sure that the future owner for this vehicle will appreciate this as well. If you crash, you buy at the asking price. The vehicle is currently on the 993 18 inch Turbo Twist wheels. The Turbo Twist wheels will stay on until it sells. When the car does sell, the original stock 16 inch wheels will go back on the car. However, please be aware that the tires on the stock 16 inch wheels are old from what I know. That is the reason why the 993 Turbo Twist wheels are on the vehicle now. I would highly recommend trailering the vehicle if it is a long distance drive with the stock wheels on for safety purposes. I am currently asking for $18,000 and I am somewhat firm on this price. If you still have another reasonable offer, I am still all ears however. I am in no rush to sell this vehicle. It is in pristine condition, garage kept, and under a car cover until it sells. This Porsche 944 Turbo is one of the last few, unmolested, fine examples with very low miles compared to it's age. I welcome and encourage anyone that wants to hire a mechanic to take a look at the vehicle at the buyer's expense. At the buyer's expense, I will also cooperate with shipping if necessary. Condition of the Vehicle: As to be expected from a 22 year old, used vehicle with 31.5K miles, although not many and not severe, there are going to be a few blemished, rock chips, scratches, etc. There are signs of touch up paint to cover up some of the rock chips/scratches to prevent the metals underneath from corrosion/rust. Nothing out of the ordinary I would say to be concerned about. This car starts up with no problems and with no hesitance. This 944 drives well, revs strong, and shifts smoothly. The interior as well as the exterior is in immaculate condition. The interior leathers, carpet and trim is in very good condition with no signs of noticeable wear. There are no tears anywhere. The exterior paint is also in very good condition. The car still shines like it is brand new. The clearcoat as well as the paint are still intact other than a few rock chips and the such primarily located in the front. A friend and I personally did a 24 hour, professional detail, color correction, wax job on the vehicle in the summer of 08. My friend is now the co-owner of AutoLavish of MI. AutoLavish does professional cleaning, detailing, and color correction for all types of vehicles. As stated before, the vehicle was garage kept so damage from the harmful ultraviolet rays from the sun is kept to a minimal. The underbody of the car shows no signs of rust and corrosion. It actually looks very clean underneath with no signs of leaks. Yes, I also wash the under carriage as well as the engine bay of my vehicles. Nothing is neglected. NOTE: The vehicle will come with the stock Porsche OEM 16 inch rims/tires. For the duration of the sale, the car will be on the Turbo Twist 18 inch wheels as I trust those tires more.

Note: I got the timing belt and engine seals checked and had the intention to change it, however, upon taking the timing belt cover off, the shop informed me that the timing belt looked brand new. There were no leaks from the engine seals as well. The timing belt even even had the Porsche logo freshly imprinted on the timing belt. The shop checked the condition of the belt and felt that a timing belt job was not needed. The shop told me that the belt seemed like it was recently replaced. I looked at it too and agreed. The shop checked the tension and off I went. I would, however, recommend replacing the belt if any of you want a peace of mind. I didn't change the belt as I saw the condition of the belt myself, trust the mechanics that told me, and also felt that the belt did not need to be replaced. This took place approximately 4,000 miles ago. Miscellaneous Work: Undated - Dark blue rear window tints Undated - Center Porsche rear, back-lit reflector from Porsche dealership Undated - Rolled fenders Summer 08 - Replaced both visor clips - OEM Summer 08 - Replaced glovebox light housing Summer 08 - reapplied and reglued interior, center mirror Summer 08 - Red vinyl over rear yellow signals 08-08 - Installed Dual XHD6425 Bluetooth ready Car Stereo Receiver 08-08 - Installed 1 Blue and 2 Ultra White LEDs in instrument panel (T10 4 bulb LEDs 194). Porsche 944s are notorious for dim dash lighting. The 4-bulb LEDs has significantly solved this known problem. The one blue, ultraviolet LED brings out the orange needles while the white LEDs make the gauges more visible. 4 Red LEDs in rear Porsche center lens panel (5 bulb LEDs 194) 09-08 - Installed under stereo pocket 09-08 - Installed brushed aluminum bezel in instrument panel 03-01-10 - Replaced dome light housing The Bad: Small, very tiny, crack on the dash right above the hazard light button. Passenger side window motor is loud but seems to work fine. The window moves up and down smoothly with no hesitation Small cracks on the dash near the two air vent holes farthest left on driver side (barely noticeable, about a quarter inch long each). The 944s are notorious for cracked dashes. This particular 944 only has a few small ones that are barely noticeable but just wanted to put it out there. Other than that, the dash is in very good condition with no signs of age. 4 tiny holes on the passenger side on the side of the center console where a built in telephone used to be installed Steering wheel vibration at higher speeds. Wheel needs to be balanced The key head is missing the Porsche emblem Tires may need to be replaced soon on the stock 16 inch wheels. However, the car is currently on the 18 inch Turbo Twist wheels. Although there is plenty of tread left, I am afraid that the tires may be old so for safety purposes, I would highly recommend replacing them. The air conditioning blows out cool air, but not cold. It seems the AC just stopped blowing cold air this year. The AC needs a recharge. It is still on the original stock R12 system. Otherwise, the AC compressor still kicks in and is still functioning. The rear trunk foam underneath the carpet has some tears due to age. The carpet is in very good condition and the foam is just located underneath it so you can't even see it. Will include: Original Porsche carpets in very good condition (I always use rubber floor mats over the OEM carpets). Original Porsche manual and service booklet Original Porsche wheel lock key Original Porsche air compressor kit Original Porsche spare wheel and tire (never been used) Original Porsche tool kit (if I can locate it) Original Porsche radio with Blapunkt equalizer (if I can locate it) Option to purchase separately if desired at a significant discount. Buy everything at $1,750: Grey Saratoga top. As you may or may not have already known, these glass tops that directly replaces the Porsche 944's roof are very hard to come by. Just by picking up one of these, the Saratoga tops are significantly lighter than their stock counterparts. There are no leaks, however the outer seal has seen better days. You may want to replace the outer seal for aesthetic purposes. $550 Catalytic converter pipe with bypass test pipe, 951.111.093.03 - European OEM. In very good condition. This is basically a cat delete pipe. I purchased this pipe with intentions of installing in hopes for the turbo to spool up a little more earlier, to get a nice sound out of it (so I've heard), to reduce weight, and to make the car more efficient. I just did not have the time nor the motivation to do it anymore so it was never installed. These European OE pipes are VERY hard to find. This is a direct bolt on with no cutting and welding involved. Just bolt on and go! $350 993 OEM Turbo Twist Wheels - 18x7.5 ET50 Fronts, 18x10 ET65 Rears wrapped with 225/40/18 Fronts, 265/35/18 Rears. Comes with all Porsche OEM center caps. Highly recommend wheels to be balanced. These wheels have the proper offsets to fit the 944s. They give the car a more aggressive stance as they are wider and come out towards the fenders more. $950 Clear, front signal lamp covers (barely used. Only used for about 2,000 miles. Very good condition. $40 2 Mahle oil filters (OC 142) (OE manufacturer). $8 each 4 brand new Bosche Platinum spark plugs (never installed) $6 Complete Continental Contitech, CRP timing belt kit TB107-293K2. This kit has all of the parts needed to do a timing belt job. I believe all of the parts are made in Germany since Contitech/CRP is an OE supplier. This kit includes: 1 timing belt (944 105 15704), 1 balance shaft belt (944 102 219 04), 1 balance shaft tensioner (944 102 025 07), 1 balance shaft idler (944 102 277 06), 1 timing belt idler (944 105 241 04), and 1 timing belt idler (944 105 631 06). $170 As much detail as this listing may contain, there may be a few, minor things I may have forgotten to mention. With that being said, please contact me initially through eBay if there are any questions, concerns, and/or interest. More information can and will be given upon initial contact if desired. A $250 non-refundable deposit will be required after winning the listing through PayPal. The deposit is just to ensure that the buyer is serious about the purchase. The rest of the balance will be paid through certified check and/or cash in person. If you need to arrange shipping, I will do my best to cooperate.

Thanks for taking the time to read all of this! :) Information I reserve the right to end an auction early for whatever reason. I reserve the right to cancel any eBay member's bid/purchase with an overall negative feedback.

This way, I can still allow people a chance to bid rather than none at all. Please notify me if you are such a person prior to purchasing/bidding if you are serious about purchasing.

I strongly suggest contacting me through eBay if you have any questions, concerns, comments, or suggestions. I cannot guarantee that I will receive your message if the message is sent through means other than eBay. I receive hundreds of bulk/junk/spam mail each day and I would hate to accidently delete an eBay member's message.

If there is a problem, please contact me before leaving any negative feedback. I will always be fair and explain or negotiate any problems.
