1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S
Please read: This 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S went under a 3 year restoration and over $21,000 spent just on parts and some labor. There is about 1000 hours NOT included in the $21,000 restoration. The prior owner is an engineer and did an excellent job with a local shop to bring this wonderful 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S to it's current excellent state. We have 3 folders of all the work performed and professionally done. Included are factory $600 manuals and books. Again this work was performed in his garage and never left for 3 years until finished about 6 months ago. We have done an additional $5100 in parts and labor. The paint is mostly 32 years old and is a 5 footer. But shows out well. Zero rust anywhere. Has your typical rock chips for a car of this age. We have touch up paint premixed if you so chose to touch p any chips. Clean title, clean car fax, and turn key zero drama for the next owner. Enjoy and drive. Nothing to fix or worry about. Zero oil leaks as seen in the photos and videos. Again keep in mind at some point for a car of this age you would need to do all this restoration at some point. So when your looking for a 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S remember these areas below have all been addressed and professionally done with all documentation and records to prove. Look at all the other 944 Turbos that have sold on BAT. Most every one of them is covered in oil underneath. You will not find a drop of oil any where on our 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S. It's perfect. The smart thing to do is buy this one because most everything has been addressed. Turn key ready for the next owner to enjoy. Again zero drama. Below is what has been replaced, repaired or restored over the past 3 years. After 3 years in the shop and after all worked was finished then it was put back on the road to be enjoyed.
