The State of the Porsche 944 Market

Bought It Right

1986 Porsche 944 Turbo
$33,000 at RM Sotheby's Amelia Island

Even though $33,000 sounds like a lot for a Porsche 944 Turbo, Hagerty says that a No. 1 example is worth north of $40,000. Add in the prestige of buying a premium example from a European collection, and maybe this one makes sense.

Paid Too Much?

$46,200 at RM Sotheby's Amelia Island

Hagerty reports that this is right on the money for a totally perfect 944 Turbo S, but that still seems like a lot of bread to us-especially since most of that special Turbo S hardware became standard on the Turbo the following year.

Better Buy It Now

1991-’96 Porsche 968

Know what really might be the best 944 variant? The 968, the final chapter in the 924/944/968 story. Between the 1991 and 1 996 model years only about 4000 examples came stateside, with that number roughly split between coupes and convertibles. You can still buy one in the teens.

1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S
$13,950 on Bring A Trailer

Legend says that Porsche only built 1635 copies of the 944 Turbo S for the 1988 model year. Yes, they’re rare, but perhaps this car is closer to reality: In December, this one fetched less than $14,000 on Bring a Trailer. Aside from a few small cosmetic issues, it looked clean.
