Here for your consideration is a 1988 Porsche 944. This beauty has the original paint in midnight blue color. This auto is 25 years old but the previous owners have given her tender loving care and it definately shows. This car has near perfect paint with a few light scratches and very,very, minor dings. Every exterior light works with no broken or cracked covers. The tires are almost brand new and the wheels are perfect. Exterior wise you will be hard pressed to find a 944 in this good of condition that has not been repainted.
The interior is all original with the exception of the racing seats and steering wheel and new carpet has been installed. Every single electronic works perfectly including the gauges with the exception of the rear windshield wiper. The dash has a few very light cracks in it but are hardly noticeable. Interior wise the only thing left to do is the headliner. It is fine with no tears but needs reglueing and situated around the sunroof.
I have saved the best for last. The engine and transmission are in perfect condition. This baby runs strong and smooth with absolutely no leaks anywhere. The entire engine was gone through by the previous owner and Euroasian and he had planned to finish the restoration of the rest of the car but simply could not afford to finish. This car is tight and handles superbly with no rattles and such. The odometer is not working but once you see and drive this auto then I am sure that you will agree that it really does not matter because it is clearly evident that this auto is solid, sound, and totally ready for your driving pleasure.
Folks you can look long and hard to find another 944 in comparible condition but be prepared to pay a premium price. This car is a head turner and is a joy to drive. With a little more time and money this car could be in showroom condition. Mechanically this car is sound and will be something to enjoy while finishing the restoration.
GOOD LUCK BIDDING! Call me at 662-574-3147 with any questions. Dan
Ah, sibling rivalry. It really is a beautiful thing. It's even more beautiful when said siblings are automakers with very, very well-known racing histories. That's how you get videos like this, which is Audi's way of welcoming Porsche back to the top flight of Le Mans racing.
Yes, Audi has taken its R18 E-Tron Quattro back onto public roads, wowing schoolboys and scaring farmers (who appear to be riding classic Porsche tractors), as it travels from Ingolstadt to Zuffenhausen, just to taunt its corporate frenemy.
Take a look below for a video to see just what that teasing looks like.
Porsche is preparing to launch its sub-Cayenne CUV, with a suspected debut at the 2013 Los Angeles International Auto Show, which means we're right about at the point where undisguised models start scampering around the cities and towns of Germany. Our spy photographers snagged just such a model, with only the headlights and taillights concealed by camouflage (no, those comically large lamps aren't a production item).
The undisguised car looks like a tiny Cayenne. Not really surprising, we know, but it's impressive to see how the Cayenne's styling works with the smaller proportions of the Macan. It looks squat, athletic and poised, like it's a small, "sporty" crossover we'd actually want to drive. Both the Macan and the Macan Turbo are shown, with the more powerful model sporting a set of quad exhausts.
The only big questions now concern the shape of the lights and the interior. From the photos, we can see a rough outline of the headlights, although the taillights are more difficult to discern. The interior remains a mystery.
We've seen the upcoming Porsche Macan testing on surface roads and even on the Nürburgring, but here we have our first spy shots showing a disguised prototype doing some winter testing in snowy conditions. Still obscured by plenty of camouflage attempting to mimic its larger Cayenne sibling, we still can't get a clear look at what the Macan's face and rump are going to look like, although it does appear that some details for the front lighting are starting to emerge.
Below the headlights, those are obviously decals trying to look like turn signal lenses, but it appears that there is still some sort of lighting being hidden judging by the small circles cut into the camo. Lower in the fascia, we can also see there are LED running lights not revealed on past prototypes. The entire rear end of this Macan prototype still appears to be tacked-on camo, but the side view appears to be in production form save for the poorly disguised rear quarter windows.
As we've seen in the past, Porsche engineers are still testing the Macan alongside the Audi Q5 with which it shares its platform. There has been no word as to when we could expect to see the Macan in production or concept form, but we'd have to guess that this compact crossover is getting ready to shed its camo very soon.
