‘As new’ 944 up for grabs

Put away in 1991, this Porsche has cov­ered just 5036 miles. It’s now for sale

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

A time­warp Porsche 944 Lux has been put up for sale in Sur­rey, by the owner who bought it new as a week­end car 30 years ago.

Owner Barry used the 944 – lat­terly recog­nised as a clas­sic transaxle Porsche – for just over three years be­fore his work com­mit­ments changed. With the car then see­ing lit­tle use, he put it away in stor­age be­fore it was due its first MoT, hav­ing cov­ered 5036 miles.

‘I have the last tax disc bought for the car – it’s dated 31 Au­gust 1991,’ Barry said. Since then, he has reg­u­larly started the car, and re­placed its fuel pump and fil­ter.

‘It fell into dis­use when I be­gan work­ing in Sin­ga­pore. I’ve done ev­ery­thing I can to keep ev­ery­thing tick­ing over and run­ning cor­rectly, but now that it’s a clas­sic, it needs the right per­son to come along and give it a new lease of life.

‘ There can’t be many 944s left like it now, it’s very orig­i­nal and has seen very lit­tle UV light, so the Guards Red paint and in­te­rior are still as new.’

Barry has the car listed for £34,000.
