History File

This fastidiously maintained Porsche 944 was initially registered in April 1985 to Herr Füssel, in north Germany, who would retain the car for just two years before parting ways in 1987 and just 13,700 kilometers driven. In May 1987, the car would ultimately find its sole mate who would own the car until 2021 and an astonishing 34 years. The immaculate Porsche Service Booklet is flawless and contains no less than 18 service stamps – all Porsche, of course. Make no mistake, this car was to become “one man’s dream” and the car would want for nothing over his 34 year tenure. All-together, a super example and already getting harder to find good 944’s in this condition.


Finished in Graphite Metallic code LB7V, which would only be on offer by Porsche between 1985 and 1986, the overall finish is immaculate and damage free. Fresh paint has been applied to the bonnet which, on questioning the previous owner, apparently was one of his stipulations before buying the car from Porsche distributor Thiele in Paderborn, Germany in 1987. A few stone chips were not to his satisfaction along with a small scratch on the rear passenger side wing, both of which were repaired before handover. All in all, considering the repairs took place some 30 years ago, the finish is still in remarkable condition. Granted, there are a few time related scuffs on the front spoiler area but it is still in stunning condition.


The black environment is dominated by the rather special, factory ordered, Leather Sports Seats (M code – 946). Other additional factory ordered codes, include 431 4-spoke leather steering wheel and handbrake cover. Electric windows (code – 651) add a touch of comfort but, interestingly the car was clearly ordered by its first owner with ‘driving’ in mind, without power steering and air-conditioning.


Engine & Transmission

When opening the bonnet, first impression is astonishing. In recent months the car has been treated to comprehensive dry ice cleaning from underneath the car, behind the wheels and engine compartment. Both timing belt and water pump were renewed along with a complete service in June 2020. Interestingly, when originally ordered, the first owner clearly had specifics in mind as the car was manufactured without power steering and air conditioning but, with Sports Shock Absorbers and Stabilizers (code – 456). It was clearly intended for a serious driver.

Wheels, Tyres & Brakes

The exterior is greatly enhanced by the factory ordered Fuchs alloy wheels (M code – 401) and are covered by Dunlop SP Sport 9000 tyres with plenty of appropriate tread. A complete brake overhaul was completed in June 2020 prior to passing the strict German TÜV test, valid until June 2022.
