When it comes to 944s, they don’t come any better than the 944 Turbo. And, this high-spec 1990 model in Guards Red with cream leather is a superb example of the ever popular marque.
Later Turbo model cars (post 1989) such as this featured all of the same spec as the earlier Turbo S badged cars – including more powerful engines, limited slip differential, bigger anti-roll bars, Fuchs ‘Club Sport’ forged wheels, stronger gearbox etc.
The result of which is a faster, sharper driving experience than the non-turbo and early Turbo models. Production performance figures at the time were a quoted 0-60 in 5.5secs and a top speed of 162mph, making it the fastest production 4-cylinder car of its day.
That performance hasn’t been lost with time, either. This car performs exceptionally well and is a lot more focussed than you might expect.
This car has covered 95k miles over its lifetime and has been maintained with no expense spared. A full repaint has been carried out (with any rust treated and repaired), upgraded suspension fitted, wheels refurbished and brake callipers rebuilt. A fresh timing belt service has just been carried out, also.
The car is Irish registered and will be 30 years old in April 2020, meaning it will be eligible for cheap classic tax. Just in time to enjoy for the summer.Get in Touch
