Porsche 944Advert ID: 40845 £10,000 GBP
Probably the nicest 1985 944 available today.This car is eligible for the historic targa/navigation events in the 1985 class, yes you will buy one for half the price, but not like this absolute beauty.
The car has just undergone a full restoration by an independent Porsche specialist in Wales, no expense spared during the build of the car. With over 400 hours work put into this rebuild, it has to be seen to be truly appreciated. This isn't just a car that has had a respray, it has had every section inspected and rebuilt if it needed the work. below is a list of some of the work carried out:

The car had previously been stored for 10 years until the garage obtained it, unfortunately the car was a CAT C back in the start of the 90's but during the rebuild the garage inspected the car and could't find any structural issues or mechanical problems. Absolutely any inspection invited.
Please don't let this issue put you off as back in the 90's these cars were still pretty new and parts were still pricey so the costs to repair would be different to today's market.
You will not find another early 944 built to this standard anywhere, the others that are listed on ebay have not had anywhere close to the amount of work and time put into them as this one has.
