Porsche introduced the 944 in 1982. The factory-claimed 0-60 mph time of less than 9 seconds, and top speed of 130 mph was pessimistic, Autocar having verified a top speed of 137 mph, and a 0-60 time 8.3 seconds. The car had nearly even front to rear weight distribution (50.7% front/49.3% rear) thanks to the rear transaxle balancing out the engine.

In mid-1985, the 944 underwent its first significant changes. These included, a new dash and door panels, embedded radio aerial, upgraded alternator, increased oil sump capacity, new front and rear cast alloy control arms and semi-trailing arms, larger fuel tank, optional heated and powered seats. For 1988 the 944 Motronic DME was updated, and newly incorporated anti-lock braking and air bags. In early 1989 before the release of the 944S2, Porsche upgraded the 944 from the 2.5 to a 2.7 L engine, with a rated 162 hp, and a significant increase in torque. In addition to the increase in displacement, the new motor featured a siamesed-cylinder block design and a different cylinder head which incorporated larger valves. The car was phased out in 1979.

The Porsche 944S offered here is described by the vendor as having been owned by the same lady since 1989 and has been serviced regularly at the same garage for the majority of its life. It is in fantastic condition externally and internally and is all original. 

There is a large folder with an extensive record of all the services and maintenance. As well as the original user manual and service record book pack and spare key still in the original packaging. 

The diamond blue colour is very rare colour and the vehicle has only covered 93,000 miles over its 30 year life. The mileage has regularly been documented throughout its life, making it a brilliant investment piece for the future.
