The diary of a Porsche 944 and former 911 Owner. I have now bought a 1986 Porsche 944 having previously owned a 2001 model 996 Carrera 2 Coupe with 3.4 engine/manual transmission and this is intended to document my experiences with the Porsche 944 over time including any problems and the running costs of maintaining a 30 year old Porsche 944.
It's been a little while since I posted but a lot has happened in that time! The rust on the sills was needing attention after originally only stripping the rear of the car to replace the fuel lines!
Porsche 944 rusty sills
So having removed, gearbox, torque tube, axle, brakes, shock absorbers, exhaust and fuel tank the car was ready to get welding. I struggled to find a local garage that were able to do the work so at the end of January 2017 the car went off on the back of a truck to Banbury to be fixed by Nash at Retro Restorer who specialises in Porsche 944 and was incredibly helpful over the phone.
While the car is away I've got the seats back from the trimmers and will be collecting all the parts I need to be able to complete the restoration when the car comes back.
