Side of the Road 23: 1985 Porsche 944 5-Speed – SOLD!
June 30th Update – We learned the private seller of this low mileage original condition Porsche 944 sold his car. To the buyer we wish, “Good luck with purchase!”
Sometimes you can come across a great sports car for sale on your way back from the grocery store to refresh supplies during social distancing. That’s exactly what happened on Friday morning when we noticed this 49.9K original mile 1985 Porsche 944 5-speed for sale literally less than one mile from our home.
Guards Red with black leather, 5-speed manual transaxle, and Fuchs five spokes. Those are the quintessential ingredients for a late eighties 944 and this example does not disappoint. The current caretaker is asking $8,700 or best offer and a quick check of the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms this private seller has their 944 priced $1,200 above the current #3 “Good” estimate of $7,500. We’re very tempted to make our project Eldorado sit outside while we pick this car up and give it a thorough detail!
