  F503 MGD
Long term ownership car, the previous keepers kept this 944 for 20 years and it's been dry stored for the last 10 years. A low owners car, it has near enough full Porsche service history apart from the most recent service by a specialist.

The last MoT expired in July 2015 and it has not been on the road since. As such, it will need recommission before use. It has a new battery and starts off the key and it runs well enough once it warms up.

Condition
The body is in great order, nice and even straight shut lines around the front bumper, nose and wings and the bonnet, wings and headlights are perfectly alinged. The paint is in good order, it has a couple of little blisters around the edges if we are critical.

The cabin is in good dry order with lovely fresh clean carpets on the floor and in the boot and the Porsche floor mats are like new. The driving controls are in great order, there is no wear to the gearknob and the leather steering wheel is in great condition too.

The pinstripe cloth chairs are a comfortable delight, so much more comfortable than leather, the driver seat has a little wear to the beading on the boltser and the passenger seat has a split in the backrest cushion.
There's some sun damage to the top edge of the rear seat squab and some plastic push in tacks are missing from the sidewalls of the rear carpets that line the sides of the luggage compartment, these carpet tacks are no longer available from Porsche, though can be found from a used parts dealer. The LCD clock screen needs replaced, repair kits are available on eBay. There is a single switch cover missing from the driver seat. The top of the dashboard is free from cracks.
A complete 944 in more or less lovely condition in the cabin.

After being dry stored for so long, it has a couple of issues with door handles that may need specialist attention. The passenger door will not open from inside or outside the car and the driver door will only open from the inside. The door locks appear to work fine. The window switches may need replaced too. The door mirrors both work in all directions and the sunroof works too.

The Azev A alloys are in good order, a couple of marks on a couple of them, so they would benefit from refurbish though still in good condition and useable if you choose not to. The tyres are old though the treads are all good.

The previous keeper fitted the 968 style skirts, as far as I can tell the sills underneath the skirts are solid and I can feel no rust when I run my hand along them under and behind the skirts. 

This car is for sale by live auction, the auction will end at 8pm on 06.07.2024. You can view and bid on the auction (click) here.

Summary
This will make a really nice 944 once it has been recommisioned for use and the outstanding faults noted above addressed. It's a low owners car with near enough full Porsche service history in a superb colour combo and a very straight body.
