1987 Porsche 944 White Sunroof Coupe With 54,300 Original Miles!!! on 2040-cars

Year:1987 Mileage:54300
Location:

Weston, Massachusetts, United States

Weston, Massachusetts, United States

1987 Porsche 944 with 54,300 original miles, 5 speed manual, classic sunroof coupe.  White on burgundy leather with phone dial wheels, power everything.  We bought it with 10,650 miles on it in 1992 and have owned it ever since.  This car has been driven sparingly during the summer months and has been always maintained, always garaged, always babied, never raced, never seen snow or salt even though it spent its entire live in New England.  Serviced at the same Porsche specialist shop last 15 yrs.  Car was fully optioned when new and is completely original down to the Blaupunkt radio/cassette player, except for the following:
  • Burgundy pinstriping was applied when new – real paint, not stick-on.
  • Yokohama tires have less than 5K miles on them.
  • Ungo alarm was installed originally.
  •  MacNeil rear hatch tray (original carpeting is excellent underneath)

See the many photos for details.  The car is very clean, but the following wear and tear is noted:

  • Typical front end nicks for its mileage, always touched up
  • Pinstriping on front end is worn, see photos
  • Steering wheel stitching starting to unravel in high wear spot and could use restitching there
  • One small ding on windshield (that we’ve lived with for many miles)
  • Intermittent wiper function doesn’t work, probably a relay
  • One very slight parking lot dent on left front fender, only visible at glancing angle in the right light, less than 2” long (tried to capture it in photos)
  • Car had door edge guards mounted when new.  Those have been removed and stainless steel screws put in the mounting holes

The car runs and drives fabulously with all the handling that 944’s are known for.  Since last season, a slight vibration in left front tire at about 70 mph suggests that tire might need rebalancing.  Payment by bank check only.  Shipping is at buyer's expense and risk. Please see the many photos and ASK ANY QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING!

Porsche board members facing another ˆ1.8B lawsuit over VW takeover bid

Mon, 03 Feb 2014

Back in 2008, Porsche got the bright idea that it could take over Volkswagen in the midst of the worst economic slump since the Great Depression. Ignoring that this was a catastrophic move for the Stuttgart sports car manufacturer that that eventually resulted in it nearly going bankrupt and eventually being taken over by the same company it sought to control, the aftermath has left Porsche Chairman Wolfgang Porsche and board member Ferdinand Piëch in the crosshairs of seven hedge funds that lost out during the takeover and are now seeking €1.8 billion - $2.43 billion US - in damages from the two execs, according to the BBC.
See, investors bet on Volkswagen's share price going down, partially because Porsche said it wasn't going to attempt a takeover. But Porsche was attempting to take over VW, having bought up nearly 75-percent of VW's publicly traded shares. When word broke that Porsche owned nearly three-quarters of VW (which indicated an imminent takeover attempt), rather than go down like the hedge funds bet it would, VW's share price skyrocketed to over 1,000 euros per share, according to Reuters.
Naturally, when you bet that a company's share price is going to drop and it in turn (temporarily) becomes the world's most valuable company, you lose a lot of money, unless you're able to buy up shares before prices jump too much. This led to a squeeze on the stock, which the hedge funds accuse Porsche and Piëch (who are both members of the Porsche family and supervisory board) of organizing.

2015 Porsche Boxster GTS [w/video]

Thu, 22 May 2014

You know the sound: the startling pop-brraaap-pop-pop shotgun fire of unspent flammables coursing through exhaust pipes that usually signals a raw, naughty powerplant beneath the hood.
But when you're nestled in the Porsche Boxster GTS' snug seats, it's not a crackling small block V8 or a high-strung Italian flat crank making the devilish racket, but rather the new king of the Boxster/Cayman lineup, a 3.4-liter flat-six that produces 330 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque.
Within the emotional vacuum of a spec sheet, the Boxster GTS' pumped-up grunt seems pretty mild, with a gain of only 15 hp and 7 lb-ft, respectively. But the reworked acoustical experience goes a long way towards suggesting the GTS has a trace of racing blood in its veins, and might even be missing its catalytic converters. In addition to the sonorous, centrally positioned tailpipes, the cabin also fills with lovely mechanical strains thanks to the "Sound Symposer" acoustical amplifier that's trickled down into the Boxster/Cayman lineup from the 911 for the first time. Boxster S, we hardly knew ya.

2014 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid

Tue, 09 Jul 2013

Porsche's Performance Plug-in Preamble
By the end of this year, Porsche will be producing as many plug-in vehicles (two) as mainstream automakers such as Toyota, Chevrolet and Honda. Before the 2015 918 Spyder hybrid supercar goes on sale in the US, though, it will be warming its customers up to the idea of a plug-in model with the 2014 Panamera S E-Hybrid. A step up from the previous Panamera S Hybrid, the new plug-in Panamera adds a more powerful and advanced electric drive system that pledges to deliver the performance expected of a Porsche with the added benefit of improved fuel economy and reduced emissions.
Going on sale in November, the Panamera S E-Hybrid is aimed at customers also considering the upcoming plug-in version Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but the car's dimensions and performance could make it a competitor for Tesla Model S customers. We headed to Germany at Porsche's invitation to see how well it performs, as well as check out the full range of newly refreshed Panamera models, which now numbers nine offerings - although we're still waiting for a production version of the gorgeous Sport Turismo wagon concept.
