Porsche 944S 1987
Porsche 944S 1987.
• 2,5 litres
• 4 cylinders
• ca 190 hp
• 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) at ca 8 seconds (even ca 7 seconds according to
• top speed ca 230 kph (ca 140 mph)
The car is a joy to drive. Probable reasons:
• well balanced chassis (weight distribution ca 50% front and 50% back,
with engine in front and gearbox in back)
• direct and exact steering (like a gocart)
• lovely and responsive engine (with 4 valves/cylinder and double
I didn't have high expectations when I bought the car in the spring of 2010
from a friend that was moving abroad. (Who would have, with a 4 cylinder
Porsche?) But the car turned out to be possibly the only car ever that has
made me do a big smile while driving it. The car feels particularly well at
high speeds on the highway. It is in fact a true racecar made for the race
track. It may not go that fast, but it feels fast and is a lot of fun.
At low speeds the car may feel a bit "tired", and it is not always very
smooth to drive in the city or for parallell parking.
The video clip was filmed in the Stockholm area in Sweden during the summer
of 2011, and today (in May 2012) the car is almost 25 years old and has run
more than 280 000 kilometres (170 000 miles).
It was sold new in Germany in August 1987 and was owned there and in
Switzerland by an older lady (the car's first owner) for the first 17 years
of the car's life (from when the lady was ca 50 to ca 65 years old). She
was one of the better female amateur golfers in Europe and drove the car
sometimes around the continent to different golf tournaments. She didn't
want to switch to another car because she thought it was so easy to put her
golf bag in the back of this car. However in the end the gearbox failed and
she couldn't for example switch into reverse gear, so she decided then
finally to change car to a BMW convertible instead.
After that this Porsche 944S was sold and imported to Sweden (by a
temporary owner?) during the summer of 2004. The gearbox seemed to have
been fixed, because (after having been registered in Sweden) the car was
sold to an 18 year old man who owned the car for ca 1 year.
Then, it was sold again in 2005 to a 36 year old man who owned it for ca
And in the beginning of 2006 it was sold once again (a bad sign?), this
time to an older man in his 60's who owned it for 4-5 years. He bought the
car for nearly 60 000 Swedish kronor and spent nearly another 60 000
Swedish kronor on repairs for the car.
Among other things he:
• changed the clutch
• fixed the air conditioning
• changed to a new timing belt
• switched the outer part of the Exhaust pipe (because the older one had rusted)
When a new timing belt is installed, it must be tightened after a while.
But he didn't have time and was going to do it later. And then one day, the
untightened timing belt made the whole engine break down and a lot of it
had to be renovated and changed into functioning parts (for example the
head of the engine). The engine repair cost ca 20 000 Swedish kronor.
In 2010 the man decided to move abroad and wanted to sell the car. Then I
bought it for nearly 50 000 Swedish kronor in the spring of that year.
And to date (until May 2012) I have spent nearly 60 000 Swedish kronor on
repairs of the car.
The most important repairs were fixing an oil leak from the gearbox in the
back of the car, and fixing an oil leak from the engine in the front of the
To fix the gearbox, the Porsche garage recommended switching to a renovated
gearbox for 70 000 Swedish kronor. They said that the gearbox is so complex
and detailed, so that when there is an error somewhere it is no use trying
to fix it. Another garage (Speed & Autoteknik in the Stockholm area) said
they could fix the existing gearbox, and I decided to let them have a try.
Speed & Autoteknik seem to be very skillful at what they do, and are for
example cooperating with the well known Porsche 944 garage Sandéns
Bilteknik in Sweden. But is there a risk that the gearbox will cause
problems in the future?
Now, there are some signs that the head gasket of the engine must be
changed. That would cost 30 000 Swedish kronor (according to the Porsche
garage). The signs are a possible leak of coolant, possible oil in the
coolant container and white Exhaust.
But these are mere signs and doesn't mean for sure that the head gasket
must be changed. After all, the previous owner let the whole engine be
renovated (including changing the head) at Sandéns Bilteknik, so it would
be surprising if the head gasket would need to be changed again now. One
key question is if the car is actually leaking coolant. I will check the
level of coolant in the coolant container after a while.
(Footnote: Above, some amounts are mentioned in the currency Swedish
kronor. At the time of writing (2 May, 2012) the currency rate is 6.7209
Swedish kronor per US dollar.)

1987 Porsche 944 Sports Coupe Hatchback Manual Full Video Review
87 Porsche 944 Sports Coupe Hatchback Manual Full Walkaround Review
http://www.1OwnerCarGuy.com This is a very nice 1 Owner 1987 Porsche 944
that has just over 100K original miles on it. This is a nice clean car that
has just over 100K on it. The paint has a nice shine to it but does have
spots where the clear coat is peeling. The body is straight besides some
damage on the back passenger side. I like the phone dial wheels or whatever
they are called, they look good on these cars. The interior is really nice
and shows minimal wear. The front seats are the worst where they have a
couple cracks. The back seats are in very good condition. The targa top can
either pop up with power or it can be removed. The car does start right up
but as you can hear it has a lifter or rod knocking so that is going to
have to be addressed. This is a nice clean car though that just needs a
little work. Thank You for watching and please Share my Videos Comment on

Best GTR launch control reaction ever
Courage is strong in this beautiful GTR Pilot! She took the directions
given to her and just rolled with it!
I love the part where the fear takes over body control, which makes it hard
for her to think straight to let off the gas to make it stop. Hahahahaha
This is by far the best GTR Reaction I have ever seen with for GTR Launch
