Description:

1988 Turbo S 944 #1529The Porsche 944 Turbo S represents what most authorities consider to be the highest performance version of the highly successful 944 product range. This car was introduced in 1988 as a limited production run, fitted in the same manner as the "Turbo Cup" race car to homologate the series cars. Initially there were 1000 Turbo S cars built worldwide with 750 for the USA market and the remainder for the Rest of World markets. All these vehicles had the Option Code of M758.Following the initial run of Silver Rose cars, customers were offered the choice of interior and exterior colors for their Turbo S. These 944 Turbo S cars maintained all of the performance characteristics of the earlier car and the M758 Option code was continued onto the 635 cars that were subsequently sold worldwide. Very few of these second batch Turbo S cars made it to the US.What is certain is that all the 944 Turbo S cars will have a VIN/Chassis Number that will be in the following ranges

  • Rest of World: WPOZZZ95ZJN100001 - 1875
  • USA: WPOAA295_JN150001 - 1874
A chance to own an appreciating asset, Turbo S #1529 is in original condition with a few subtle mods in the special paint color of Stone Grey Metallic over Burgundy. Clean as a pin, this car has all paperwork from day 1 Brumos delivery including the original window sticker. Documented 4 owners, building new home or would keep. Mechanical rebuild at 61k miles incl engine upgrades to 300+ rwhp, last belt service 84k miles. Porsche Classic radio, new R Budd dash. Two recent sales of low mileage (but needing work) S cars over $60k, this car is a bargain.Additional photos and documents can be seen at the following link:https://www.evernote.com/l/AZXIy2KMa...CVRMcBCvZ1TaNs

Good luck with your sale. I just returned from a Sunday morning run with my 951S. These cars are a pleasure to drive. Yours looks well cared for.

You may wish to refresh yourself on the forum rules. Don't like the car or price? Fine, just keep it to yourself.

Surprised the mods haven't taken your post down yet.

Yet another insane Turbo S headed over $60k (even with some paintwork), would be the third one in the past few months!

Bump report on Zermatt 944 Turbo S that sold on BaT for $58,500 last week. I saw the car this weekend and this Stone Grey car has much better paint, hard to beat an original paint car with all the updates done in fantastic condition!

. Why not do BAT and get more money for it than your asking here?

Excellent question...they want a no reserve auction and I wasn't willing to take that kind of risk.

$58,500 with 19k miles and period correct aesthetically is a big stretch for a comparable to a 100k miles car.
GLWS though, it would look so much better on stock wheels.
