Description

1986 Porsche 944 Turbo. This car came out of the Porsche Driving Experience Museum in Atlanta. Thanks to maintenance by Porsche, this car is very well preserved. The 944 is revered as one of the best handling Porsche and the Turbo give it that extra umphf. The car has a new Pioneer head unit with hands free phone, Pandora, Spotify, Aux, USB and charging. Full leather, seats with folding rears and a hatch allow for plenty of luggage. The AC blows cold. It just got a tune up and new performance summer tires in March of 2018. This car garners respect everywhere it goes, from Porsche events to restaurant valets. It's a 68K mile original paint and interior car. I took this car to San Diego ( July 2018 it was 115 degrees ) and it performed perfectly.

Faqs

  • Are there any modifications?
    This car is largely original, but has a few modifications. It has the Porsche M030 front sway bar, Weltmister racing rear sway bar, Lindsay Performance chip, stainless header and full Fab Speed 3" stainless exhaust. Estimated horse power is 275 ( up from 217 ). The exhaust is a bit louder than stock, but not loud or 'boy racer' like. I assume all these modifications were made by Porsche when it was at their facility. Boost comes on at 3500 RPM. Driving around town below 4000 rpm the car is very docile.
  • It's an old car. Does everything work?
    This is a 30+ year old car and even with low mileage (68K) things stop working. Currently everything works except the power door locks. Also the power sunroof works, but locking it requires a little trial and error. In addition, there are no leaks. In December of 2018 the car received an engine and transaxle out service and complete reseal. The car also received new tires and brakes in the spring of 2018.
  • What's better Airport delivery or home location pickup?
    The cost to UBER/Lyft round trip to our house is the same as the Airport delivery. Airport delivery takes place in the parking garage due to the amount of time it takes to hand off the car. Airport security will not allow curbside delivery. Airport drop off can occur curbside, as it's quicker. The experience is much calmer away from the airport. If your destination is Scottsdale or Paradise Valley we'd recommend home pickup.

Thomas was an amazing host. He goes above and beyond to ensure that you enjoy the car as much as he does, and trust me, he’s very passionate about his cars.

Third time renter. This time for a whole week. Great car and Tom is a one of a kind for sharing his treasure with us.

When you offer yourself a ride in a Porsche 944 Turbo 1986, you know exactly what you want. And when the owner of the car is generous and caring, who would do anything to maximize your experience, it’s like a voyage back in time. The car is in an excellent condition, and Thomas is a wonderful guy. That makes the difference. We had a blast driving that car. And let’s face it, the price is more then reasonable. Awesome experience.

This is my second time renting this amazing car. I am still so thankful that Tom is sharing such an amazing treasure with us.

Thomas and the 944 were both amazing. Pick up and drop off were a breeze. The 80s nostalgia and the plush interior truly made every second of my trip exciting. The engine growl and turbo whistle was not wasted on me one bit. It’s a great car and a great owner! Highly recommended.
