Evolve Motors is pleased to present this 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo!
Though it may be hard to tell at a glance, this 951 has covered 206,000 miles over the course of its 28 year life. As any Porsche owner will tell you, these cars love to be driven and, when properly maintained, can reliably rack up astounding amounts of mileage. The performance difference between a naturally aspirated 944 and the Turbo is staggering. As someone who has daily-driven a base-model 944 for the last six years, this car has changed the way I look at my own car. It’s hard to get out of this 951 and jump into my 944 without feeling a bit underwhelmed.
This particular 951 was originally Slate Grey but has since been resprayed in Platinum Silver. Paint shows well with the exception of some cracking on the front bumper and over the driver rear wheel well. Please see the photos, all imperfections are documented extensively.
Interior is decent; there’s a tear in the driver’s seat bottom as well as some dash-cracking. While there’s a couple cosmetic flaws inside, this car is in great mechanical order. Power sunroof works and doesn't leak, rear hatch struts are functional, and all carpeting shows well with no sun-bleaching.
The underbody is corrosion free, with nothing more than a bit of surface rust. The car starts right up, idles cool, pulls hard, brakes totally straight and consistently, and doesn’t smoke or make any concerning noises.
Overall, this car is a great driver and “10 footer”. 944 Turbos are amazingly well-balanced and absolutely impossible to beat as a "driver's car" for under $10,000.
