Tired of looking for a classic Porsche and only finding various 911s? MotoeXotica has your answer - this 1987 Porsche 944. Designed to replace the 924. the 944 was slightly faster. better equipped and more refined than the 924; it had better handling. stopping power and was more comfortable to drive. The car had nearly even front-to-rear weight distribution (50. 7% F/49. 3% R) thanks to the rear transaxle balancing out the engine in the front.
Dressed in black on the outside. the car's finish is in very good condition. with overall minor blemishes on the fenders and doors visible upon close inspection. Its glass panes are clear but there is a chip on the passenger side of the windshield. The compound curved hatchback glass contains an electric defroster. This Porsche rolls on Sumitomo Touring LST radials. 215/60R15 at all four corners. surrounding Porsche “phone dial” alloy wheels. The car's body panels are straight and solid. the engine bay is tidy and the bumpers are in very good condition.
For the 944. Porsche re-worked the platform and added a new all-alloy 2. 5 L inline-four engine that was. in essence. half of the 928's 5. 0L V-8. although very few parts were actually interchangeable. Atypical in luxury sports cars. the four-cylinder engine was chosen for fuel efficiency and size. because it had to be fitted from below on the Neckarsulm. West Germany production line. To overcome roughness caused by the unbalanced secondary forces that are typical of four-cylinder engines. Porsche included two counter-rotating balance shafts running at twice engine speed. Invented in 1904 by British engineer Frederick Lanchester. and further developed and patented in 1975 by Mitsubishi Motors. balance shafts carry eccentric weights which produce inertial forces that balance out the unbalanced secondary forces. making a four-cylinder engine feel as smooth as a six-cylinder. Revised bodywork with wider wheel arches. similar to that of the 924 Carrera GT. a fresh interior and upgrades to the braking and suspension systems rounded out the major changes.
Inside. the tan bucket seats are in great shape and the matching carpet is in good condition. The black headliner is in similar good order save for wear at the base of both A-pillars. the two-tone instrument panel. black upper and tan lower is also in good order. All of the interior lighting. instruments. dome and cargo. were converted to LEDs in 2013. The factory four-spoke steering wheel is present and in good shape. Except for a blemish on the driver's side window crank. the door panels. mirrors. center console and shift lever are all in a similar state to the carpet and headliner. The cargo bay is in very good order except for the worn carpet at the hatch lid. Rounding out the interior is an Alpine AM/FM stereo.

Porsche Hi-Fi sound system and revisions in the mounting of the transaxle to reduce noise and vibration. The "cookie cutter" style wheels used in the early 944s were upgraded to new "phone dial" style wheels (Fuchs wheels remained an option).
