Congratulations to Lee Brown, winner of the 1990 Porsche 944 Turbo.

Hailed as one of the finest GT cars of its day, the Porsche 944 Turbo has everything needed to make a statement. Presence, style and performance were all wrapped up into one beautifully engineered package.

Our 1990 Porsche 944 Turbo is possibly one of the best you’re ever likely to find. Finished in Guards Red with black interior, the aesthetics on this car are truly top notch and that’s before we get into the mechanicals… Adored by its previous owners, the car has been meticulously cared for and looked after by specialists. The most recent work carried out to the 1990 944 Turbo was a full engine rebuild with upgrades to make the 2.5 litre turbocharged 4-cylinder more responsive and more powerful without sacrificing its usability and reliability. The car now makes a documented 320BHP (from the standard 250BHP) thanks to the newly fitted Garrett Hybrid Turbo as well as an ECU remap to bring the final torque figure to 380lbs/ft. In addition, many parts of the cars drivetrain and running gear were upgraded to meet the new found performance with an entirely new clutch system. To compliment the increase in power, our 944 Turbo benefits from drilled discs on the front and the fitment of the Porsche M030 Handling Pack.

The car was featured in the April 2017 issue of Modern Classics magazine. When mentioning the change in performance said ‘’ Squeeze the long organ pedal into the bulkhead and if you’ve got three grand on the dial, there’s a kick in the back that feels the equal of the one you’d get in a modern performance car’’ The article is wax lyrical about just how well put together and useable this classic Porsche truly is.

The car comes with one of the most extensive history files we have ever come across for one of our competition cars. Documenting everything from the provisional discussions of buying the car, to researching the model and upgrades to the engine and turbo, print outs from Dyno sessions and a ranking table of the highest performing 944 Turbos in the country up until that point. There is a separate plastic wallet purely for keeping the cars expired tax discs spread across 3 overflowing A4 ring binders. Also included are the original and much sought after Drivers Manual and Guarantee/Maintenance books specific for the car.

To say that this 1990 Porsche 944 is the finest we have ever come across would be an understatement. The bodywork is superb, the interior is immaculate and the joy the mechanicals bring were best described by specialist JMG Porsche (responsible for most of the work carried out on the car) who described this 944 Turbo as ‘’ Awesome’’. We can’t wait for its new owner to experience just what a machine this 1990 Porsche 944 Turbo truly is.
