After Years of waiting to get my 85.5 944 since I first laid eyes on it 1986 and I am really glad I did.. it is a great car to drive, I was fortunate to find a car with 94k miles, the oem blaupunkt worked great [i did have to replace the light bulbs and add contact pads in the bottons] speakers were even just in barely used shape. The only 'problem' was the drivers door mirror.. it had been removed at one time and the wire was left unsecured so it eventually came into the path of the window... (read more)

have a 944 turbo, 1986 model in guards red. It is a scary fast car , beautiful aceleration when running correctly, has a beautiful red leather interior. A real head turner and even when not running well is still very fast. It needs lots of attention, electrical, engine and rust are constantly
needing attention. I have uprated the suspension and widened the track and is much faster around corners than standard. Lowered the front as well and is such a beautiful car. Absolute joy to own 1,... (read more)

I own a humble 2.5 mark 1 944 Lux, Nothing I have driven has given me the smile that i have when driving. It's not about top speed, 0-60 or track figures. On real roads, this car makes me smile from ear to ear!!!. Theres nothing like out handling £25000 cars in a car that cost me £500, and when I don't win, who cares, it's a 20 year old car. The balance of this car has been noted. I have owned some of the fastest motorcycles u can buy, i'm no car expert, and this little gem gives me the... (read more)

Bought my Porsche 944 Coupe 83-88 off ebay for 1200 had 100 mile drive to pick it up,the 100 miles back in the porsche was an absolute delight..overtaking with ease on the motorways and cruising effortlessly,i dont understand the statement by some saying the 944 is underpowered,my other car is a 2litre modern car but the power dosnt even scratch the surface of the porsche..i just touch the throttle in the porsche & im gone for dust.it feels so safe & sturdy at speed.the engine is pretty easy...

I've owned my Porsche 944S for just over a year and love it like my own. It drives great looks great and has never let me down. As for the comments made, some may have slightly a "battered" one! As you should hopefully know the S is not turbocharged or supercharged (P.S the Bentley Blower was supercharged hence why the term is aimed at supercharged engines) but with the bits I have done to mine I would love to show you what it can do on any road or track of your choice.

Beautiful red 1986 turbo with red leather interior, bought new badges and it took a kango hammer to get the rusted on oil filter off for an oil change.
A rewiring of the tail lights, other small jobs, a real enthusiasts car.
Fast, reliable, accelerates unbelievably, WOW. (read more)

Great car to drive. Was my "Welcome home from Iraq car"! Only had it a few days and I can't stay out of it. Such a pleasure to drive in Hawaii. Purchased for $3000 and with only 120,000 miles. In great shape and sounds very good... VROOOOMMM. Little stiff in the suspension but to be expected in a Porsche. Awesome car! (read more)

I love my 944 it is my second one and I love to drive it if I haven't used it for a few days it gives me a buzz. My first one was the earlier series 1 model and this series 2 model is a vast improvement with less rattles and it has a more modern interior that the earlier one. It is a modern day affordable classic that is surprisingly still modern in some ways and I love to drive with the roof panel off.
Highly recommended. (read more)

Every thing about a Porsche 944 Coupe 83-88 is summed up by two words, spot on! However, I do have to admit that it is hard to get in the back, but I love this car! It's great fun and good on fuel. (read more)

The Porsche 944 Coupe is a complete dog for a 3-litre turbo. Less rear visibility than a World War 2 pillar-box. A cam belt that stretches round the world twice. Which costs about the same, as the amount owed in world debt. A throttle cast in iron. Power steering, ha! It has bigger flat spots the whole of Lincolnshire. Oh yea. Once the blowers get working your that busy straining with the throttle and clutch you hardly notice it. The clutch! Warning, releasing the clutch to quickly may... (read more)

My parents bought me a Porsche 944 Coupe 83 for graduation and I've fallen in love. Not only the performance, but the sheer beauty and overall condition its in amazes me. This will probably be my favorite car I will have for the rest of my life, and for $3000 it was one heck of a deal. 22 years old, and runs like a champion. I love it! (read more)

Bought my 1985 Porsche 944 Coupe 83-88 auto off Ebay for £1300, 80k miles, bargain of the year! Supposidly auto slipping slightly at low speed, but you'd never notice. At high speed very stable. Looks like its 5 years old, not 20! Can't think of any serious faults, just change the oil/ filter using good stuff regulary. Great to drive, but my Merc's easier to get in/out.
Great car, cheap classic insurance too, just need a tiptronic Porsche now! (read more)

My '87 Porsche 944 Coupe S is a sports car I think I will always love, and try to keep for as long as possible. I've had it since March 2004. Bought it from the original owner with 102,500 miles on it and a folder of receipts about 4 inches thick. It was kept up to a high standard, and I haven't had any problems with it other then a cracked heater hose which I replaced for $4. This car has a sweet 16V DOHC 2.5 that sings wonderfully and revs happily. It really moves the car well in the mid... (read more)

She is 20 years old but I get people in new BMW M3's & Mercedes AMG admiring her. Id recomend anyone that likes attention and wants to treat themselves without the heavy expense to buy one!

I bought my '83 Porsche 944 Coupe, 2.5/8 valve instead of building a kit car, it was the right choice. Even though she's over 21, when I turn the key she never fails to start first time, every time.
Plenty of speed for the u.k.'s gatso infested roads and takes corners faster than I can!
Over-taking is a joy, point and press.
Can be a bit 'thumpy' at town speeds, but on the open road - yahoo!
Gets respect from other drivers and even drivers of new porsches give you recognition. (read more)

I bought a 944 as a birthday present for myself 3 months ago. I love it. It looks fantastic due to the wonderful, original paintwork and complete lack of any rust. How many 21 year old cars can you say that about. It's great fun on the open road and I get envious looks everywhere I take it. In addition It has to be the best looked after and best built car I have ever owned. It was excellent value for money and has relatively low running costs due to the availability of parts, general...

This car is truly Porsche's best-kept secret. The superlatives are numerous: large displacement four; light, all-alloy engine; amazing aerodynamics; gravity-cheating roadholding; high performance to value quotient; excellent resale value; supercar status under $20,000. My son's first car will be my Porsche... (read more)

The Porsche 944 Coupe 83-88 is the best handling vehicle I've ever driven, as the son of an owner of a vehicle dealership, I've had a better "cross sample" than average to base that opinion on. The body style still looks exotic many years later and the build quality is excellent and holds up to scrutiny, even when compared to newer techniques. The brakes are superb and perform way better than the profit driven rubbish found on production vehicles of 2004. Gas mileage is awesome considering... (read more)

Always wanted a Porsche 911.......think its something to do with that sexy shape,
I always wanted one, but my bank balance disagreed !!!!!! So I wanted something that didn't cost the earth to run, was fast and good looking, and I could insure it under a classic policy.
Come in Porsche 944, I used to get the 944 and the 924 mixed up!!!!! Not any more......Now I look at them and they look like two totally different cars .The look and performance of the 944 is in a different class(I could be... (read more)

I always wanted a Porsche 944 when I was a kid and when I finally bought one I was not to be disappointed. The handling at speed is second to none and parts are not that expensive anymore in England due to the age of the vehicles. They are also extremely reliable; as long as you change the oil filter regularly they should just run and run. (read more)

Beautiful vehicle, flawless mechanics. All at a reasonable price. Advice: It is very much worth spending extra money for a car with lower miles/better maintained. If I could, I would find a California car collector selling a car with 20,000 miles or less for half of the original cost of the car. This would save you the most money in the long run. (read more)

The Porsche 944 Coupe is a well made, long legged sports tourer that can seriously cover the ground. Even though the youngest model is now 10 years old, the large percentage of non-abused 944s just keep going. Galvanised bodyshell and bulletproof mechanicals give reliable, fast transport. They are cheap to buy as well (£3K to £15k), though major services at Official Porsche centres are pricey at £500+. Going to an Owners Club recognised independent can reduce service costs somewhat but a... (read more)
