1985 Porsche 944 Coupe
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

Im proud and excited to offer on consignment this highly original and beautifully preserved 1985.5 Porsche 944 Coupe.
The vehicle was produced at Porsches Neckarsulm, Stuttgart Germany Factory and then shipped to the USA. According to the Original Delivery Invoice, it was supplied new by Auto Plaza Porsche Audi, Pittsburgh, PA with an MSRP of $26,073 to a prominent Northern Ohio Mechanical Engineer. The owner was very meticulous and kept all the documentation associated with the vehicle from delivery forward, including a detailed log of every fuel purchase made. As the years passed, he added a new BMW E30 M3 to his collection and his consultancy business required increased travel, so the Porsche saw less use. In the late summer of 1988, the car was stored and covered at the owners property in a newly constructed building with a concrete floor. There it stayed until late 2020 when the family decided to have the vehicle comprehensively recommissioned in preparation for sale. I sold the car in the summer of 2021 and am now representing it for the second owners who have decided to sell the car, having added just 500 miles since they purchased it.
The original service booklet has several stamps for work completed from the car's early life by the selling dealer. There are also several invoices for basic maintenance on the vehicle.
On emerging from storage in late 2020 the vehicle was delivered to Chris Moore the principal of Autobahn Extremist an independent Porsche Specialist in Northern Ohio with a long history of maintaining 944s. Chris embarked on a thorough servicing, replacing, cleaning and detailing of the vehicle to return it to prime condition after its long slumber. Maintaining the cars originality was always the prime directive and no stone was left unturned. The final invoice was in excess of $17k and is available to serious parties for inspection.
The vehicle just received its annual maintenance/inspection at Autobahn Extremist and is ready for the driving season.
As the car presents now its hard to over emphasize how well it offers the perfect combination of originality with just the right amount of 35 years of minor patina, it just feels and looks right in every respect. Very importantly all of the paint meters as original at between 3-5 mil.
I've been fortunate to have experienced and driven many Porsche 944s over the years and this car is right at the top of the list as far as I'm concerned; time capsule originality, deep provenance and just the right amount of miles that you shouldn't be worried about adding a few more by immersing yourself in the intoxicating experience that driving this German legend provides!

The vehicle is perfect for the collector or enthusiast who is looking to add a highly original 944 to their collection and would be a strong entry for the Concours preservation class at the Porsche Club of Americas, Porsche Parade.
