I’m proud and excited to offer on consignment this highly original and beautifully preserved 1985.5 Porsche 944 Coupe.


The vehicle was produced at Porsche’s Neckarsulm, Stuttgart Germany Factory and then shipped to the USA.  According to the Original Delivery Invoice, it was supplied new by Auto Plaza Porsche Audi, Pittsburgh, PA with an MSRP of $26,073 to a prominent Northern Ohio Mechanical Engineer. The owner was very meticulous and kept all the documentation associated with the vehicle from delivery forward, including a detailed log of every fuel purchase made. As the years passed, he added a new BMW E30 M3 to his collection and his consultancy business required increased travel, so the Porsche saw less use. In the late summer of 1988, the car was stored and covered at the owner’s property in a newly constructed building with a concrete floor. There it stayed until late 2020 when the family decided to have the vehicle comprehensively recommissioned in preparation for sale. I sold the car in the summer of 2021 to the present (second) owner and am now representing it for them now due to a change in family circumstances. During their short ownership they added just 500 summer miles.


The original service booklet has several stamps for work completed from the car’s early life by the selling dealer. There are also several invoices for basic maintenance on the vehicle dating back to 1986.

On emerging from storage in late 2020 the vehicle was delivered to Chris Moore the principal of Autobahn Extremist an independent Porsche Specialist in Northern Ohio with a long history of maintaining 944’s. Chris embarked on a thorough servicing, replacing, cleaning and detailing of the vehicle to return it to prime condition after it’s long slumber. Maintaining the car’s originality was always the prime directive and no stone was left unturned. The final invoice was in excess of $17k and is available for inspection.

This spring the vehicle received its annual maintenance/inspection at Autobahn Extremist and is ready for its new owner to drive and show.


As the car presents now it’s hard to over emphasize how well it offers the perfect combination of originality with just the right amount of 35 years of minor patina, it just feels and looks right in every respect. Very importantly all of the paint meters as original at between 3-5 mil.

I’ve been fortunate to have experienced and driven many Porsche 944’s over the years and this car is right at the top of the list as far as I’m concerned; time capsule originality, deep provenance and just the right number of miles that you shouldn’t be worried about adding a few more by immersing yourself in the intoxicating experience that driving this German legend provides!
