November 2021 Classics Auction

 
  Lot 52
 

1989 Porsche 944 Turbo SE
Has been in its current ownership by a Porsche enthusiast for circa 22 years.

Registration - F142 ENV

Chassis No. - WP0ZZZ95ZKN100274

M.O.T. - May 2022

Odometer - 84,981

‘F142 ENV’ is a low-mileage example of that most desirable of Porsche 944s, the Turbo SE. The vendor bought it in 1999 and declares that he has always kept the car garaged and it has only been used ‘on occasional weekends for private use’.

Over the past 22 years ‘F142 ENV’ has apparently been very well maintained by its devoted owner, as indicated by the extensive history and complete service book which support the declared mileage of 84,681.

The brakes have been upgraded to vented/drilled discs and the car has rebuilt brake callipers all-round, new pads and new braided brake hoses. A dual port waste gate and new exhaust have been fitted, along with a new, uprated starter motor. The drive shaft couplings have been replaced. The car has recently been shod with new Pirelli P Zero performance tyres. The bodywork, paintwork and interior are described as ‘excellent’, and the dark blue pinstripe interior complements the coupé’s

white paintwork.

Introduced in 1985, the 944 Turbo used the same 2.5-litre engine as the 161bhp naturally aspirated model launched in 1982, but with turbocharger and intercooler producing 217bhp. Other features introduced with the 944 Turbo were uprated suspension and gearbox, wider wheels and new front and rear styling.

The introduction of the Turbo SE in 1988 took things a step further still. A bigger turbo enabled the engine to produce 250bhp and the car could now cover 0-60mph in 5.67 seconds. Uprated brakes and transmission, a limited-slip differential as standard and Koni dampers completed the potent package.

In summary:

  • An apparently very well maintained and highly desirable example of the ‘ultimate’ Porsche 944
  • Documented 84,681 mileage
  • Garaged and only used ‘on occasional weekends’ for the past 22 years
  • Sadly back in 1998 the car was recorded as category D back when these 944 Turbo's were not as valuable as they are in today’s market
